Recent times have seen some gaming companies, and most notably Bungie, step up their efforts to shield staff from the more unpleasant elements of fandom.

In Bungie's case the studio's taking action(opens in new tab) against not only cheaters, but serial harassers of its staff who have issued violent threats.

Now Respawn, the Vince Zampella-led studio behind Apex Legends and Titanfall, has felt it necessary to warn elements of its community about their behaviour. «Recently, we have seen increased harassment towards members of our development team,» reads a statement posted to social media. «We welcome community input, however, the line between constructive feedback and the harassment of our dev team cannot be crossed.» The studio goes on to basically say: chat shit, get banged. «We want to remind our players that we have a zero tolerance policy for threats and the harassment of our developers.

We will take appropriate action to ensure the health and safety of our team. »We love hearing feedback and will continue to work alongside our community to foster a respectful, collaborative environment, and uphold the competitive integrity of our game." There's no indication of what specifically triggered this (yet), though it says everything that Respawn decided to go public with such a statement.
