Does anyone know how this type is created? Not sure what it would be called, pixelated? Been noticing it in a lot of posters

This is what one can get in Photoshop without asking: Pixelated text but not blurred because anti-aliasing is OFF:

It was written into an image which has width only about 200 pixels. Anti-aliasing is turned OFF by right clicking the text object in the layers panel and selecting A-A =None.

That text can be enlargened to bigger pixel dimensions without losing the pixelation:

  • rasterize the type
  • scale the whole image to bigger size, use resampling method = Nearest neighbour

enter image description here

The pixelated extrusions without having a ready to use font for it need some tinkering. You can paste the enlargened shape to Illustrator an trace it to a vector shape. Give to it after tracing a color. I gave light grey. Then add effect Extrude & Bevel:

After expanding the appearance you can make edits such as giving a stroke:
