While other games are upping the ante with player count, Titanfall is a surprisingly intimate affair--especially for a game that's about giant robots. So just how big will the multiplayer matches be? A solid dozen, apparently.
Respawn's Vince Zampella tweeted (via GameSpot) that matches will be 6v6 at maximum. "Turned out to be the best balance with AI for us," he said, mentioning the computer-controlled NPCs that give the feeling of a much larger battle than one would expect from a 6v6 game.
The number isn't terribly surprising, since that's how the game has been running at every public showing so far. Presumably, the player count will apply to both current-gen and next-gen versions of the game.
