Criticism Mounts as News Hit of Titanfall Matches Limited to 6vs6
That's right, Titanfall's multiplayer will be limited to 12 players per match - 6v6. According to the development lead at Respawn, Vince Zampella this player count offers "the best balance".

As always, gamers are voicing (well, typing) their criticisms of what seems to be a very, very low player count for such a massively high profile title surrounded by so much games media hype and expectation.

Vince reassured fans that, "A 6v6 game can be a crazy experience, very fun. It is what we find most fun. There are other games with higher player player counts if that's your metric.". Yup, it's a bit of a "if you don't like it, change the channel" comment.

Zampella went on to clarify that "everyone can have a Titan in follow or guard mode" - there's also going to be a bunch of AI soldiers doing... well, whatever soldiers would do in the face of giant mechanical killing machines, I guess.

Titanfall's set to hit Xbone, Xbox 360 and PC on March 14th - why not head over to our dedicated game page for some more info?

Maybe it just works best for their game and putting more players in would make it like playing five a side tennnis.
