Titanfall Developer Urges Microsoft To ‘Fix’ Xbox One Controller

Share this:

Developer Respawn Entertainment is urging Microsoft to make some tweaks to the Xbox One’s wireless controller before the launch of their upcoming Xbox and PC-exclusive shooter, Titanfall, only one month out.

At the request of the studio, Microsoft will be updating the controller via a software patch included in an upcoming Xbox One system update due out this March 4. Last week, the company outlined the general intent of the multiplayer-focused update, saying that a portion of its contents is also meant “to prepare your Xbox One for Titanfall.” Thanks to The Verge, we now have the specifics.

“It’s just fixing the controller input, really,” Titanfall design lead Justin Hendry told the website, also mentioning that the studio worked with Microsoft on the solution. “It wasn’t really where we felt it should be; it was a little overly twitchy with the current controls. Now it’s fixed. We’re happy with it.”

Respawn is happy with it, and they know their shooters, so Xbox users should be in for a nice little fix this March.

The studio is also working with Microsoft on improvements to the console’s resolution upscaler, though it’s not clear whether the changes would affect Titanfall only, or all Xbox One games.
