The original Titanfall relied on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud for its P2P matchmaking system.

For Titanfall 2, EA and Respawn have switched to dedicated servers and a multi-service system (called Multiplay) which will use many cloud providers such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft Azure.

The video below, featuring Respawn lead engineer Jon “Slothy” Shiring, goes into further detail as to why the developer decided to switch to Multiplay.

A technical stress test will be held sometime in the future before Titanfall 2 launches on October 28 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
