Silly that it wasn't already an option
Respawn Entertainment is rolling out its next major patch for Titanfall across all platforms today and, most notably, it grants players the ability to create their own private matches. These matches can hold between 2 to 12 players, and XP, achievements, and challenges aren't earnable.
This patch does several other things, like add a shortcut to the Xbox One's Party App, more effectively distinguish players on the mini-map and elsewhere, put an end to a wall-hack exploit in the PC version, introduce balance tweaks, and fix bugs.
Respawn also changed the Gen 5 challenge requirement Gooser to be a whole lot less insane, making it so players only need to kill five ejecting pilots now, not 50. No, that's not a typo. Hit the link below for a preview of what's coming in the next Titanfall update.
