Recently, Apex Legends was hacked by an individual and/or group with the message of "Save Titanfall". In an ironic turn of events, the reason they want to "Save Titanfall" is due to the fact that it is being plagued by hackers!

The Genesis Collection Event has been disrupted by these events and we're expecting Respawn Entertainment to make amends to players. Here's the latest on the situation.

The Apex Legends hacker is currently unidentified but has accused EA of committing fraud by continuing to sell Titanfall when it is in an 'unplayable' state.

Despite raising the issue to the relevant parties, our Apex Legends hacker has reached their boiling point, resulting in today's actions.

It's not often that a community may side with a hacker, but it seems like this individual (or group) have good intentions. When you finish a match on the 'Save Titanfall' mode, you are met with the following end screen.
