Titanfall beta coming to Xbox One and PC, not Xbox 360 [UPDATE]

Vince Zampella revealed that a Titanfall beta announcement is coming soon, but his team is only working on the Xbox One and PC version of the game.

UPDATE: January 27 17:45PM PST

Confirming our earlier suspicions, Respawn CEO Vince Zampalla confirmed that the "supersecret" announcement will be details about the game's beta.

Via Twitter, Zampella wrote, "#supersecret announcement time. I'm sure no one has been able to guess from the leaks. PC and XboxOne Beta! Details in the coming days." Regarding the Xbox 360 version of the game, Zampella wrote that it's being done by Bluepoint Games. So it would be safe to assume that the beta will be exclusive to PC and Xbox One.

The headlines has been changed from "Titanfall beta sounds pretty likely at this point" to reflect this updated information.

The original story appears below.

Is there going to be a beta for Respawn's much-anticipated new shooter Titanfall? It certainly looks that way. Just hours after promotional material was discovered that suggested a beta for the game would be available February 14-19, Respawn cofounder Vince Zampella offered a tease on Twitter.

"Yes, we will have an announcement soon. I'm sure no one can guess what it will be... #supersecret," Zampella said.

According to the leaked marketing material, the only you can get in on the Titanfall beta is by preordering the game through GameStop in the United States and Micromania in France. We've reached out to GameStop for comment, but haven't heard anything back just yet.

If there is indeed a beta for Titanfall, it won't be much of a surprise. In December, Zampella said Respawn was "definitely" thinking about offering a beta for the game.

Some Xbox One owners were given a chance to play Titanfall earlier this month through an alpha trial. Some footage of this pre-release period has leaked.

Titanfall launches on March 11, 2014 exclusively for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. The game is never coming to PlayStation or Nintendo platforms, but sequels could. Last week, Respawn addressed criticism about the game's 6v6 player cap and revealed a $65 Xbox One Titanfall-theme controller.

Rumor has it that the alpha textures are the same as the final build of Titanfall. In fact, the 360 and the XBO versions look pretty similar....if this is the case, why two separate studios?

The Facebook comment flood has turned this comment section to garbage.


I probably will get Titanfall on PC since I can already preorder it for close to $45.

Console gamers have a right to complain about their low-end hardware being outdated a few months after purchase. Instead, they settle for it and yell at PC gamers.

It's nothing to do with practices, you have to remember that Respawn aren't developing the 360 version. They are simply conducting betas through their own versions of the game.

Restricting Titanfall to the Xbox One is a marketing ploy to people who still have an Xbox 360 to buy an Xbox One. Had the XB1 sold more consoles, I am fairly sure it would have been released on the 360 as well. I know this is for the Beta only, but it is still about drumming up excitement and this is also the same kind of practices that lead me to get a PS4.

To be fair, PC have a right to complain because they don't get all the good games that consoles have.

What I want to know is, is the game going to be on Steam? And do I get into the Beta if it is? Is it an Origin exclusive? I mean I'm ok with it being on Origin, as the platform now works, the features are shit, but at least it all works.

PC should run fine on my setup. But 360 version is done by Bluepoint so its already in good hands.

I don't see how it is exclusive to Microsoft I mean all we know it could be exclusive to Dell, Razor, HP, Nvidia, AMD or Intel. Saying it is s Microsoft (or Linux, etc) exclusive makes no sense since the OS is one part while hardware is the more important part (pc)

You guys are idiots if you think Titanfall is not going to be AAA title.

I was hoping looked better than what it is. And seeing footage, yes beta footage, it looks like CoD Ghosts, which doesn't have a good look to it, textures are terrible in that game. And don't tell me is not all about graphics, cuz I agree, but then again, why do we have this next-gen/current gen consoles if not for better graphics.

Sorry to burst your bubble Chris Burris but respawn has comfirmed it's exclusive to Microsoft. Sequels might come to others, but not this one.

Xbox 360 version isn't even made by Respawn, so why would they host a beta on a platform they aren't developing on? This is a simple port on Xbox 360 being made by a porting team Bluepoint studios. Be happy it's even coming to Xbox 360, it's first new exclusive in forever

I'm surprised MS is throwing the 360 a bone by having Titanfall on it at all.

More homes, but just like last gen sales on every other game...they wont be great on the 360. Titanfall is obviously a next gen powerhouse and a huge reason to upgrade to the Xbox One. It's the reason I bought one.

It's 2014. Time to upgrade. It was time to upgrade 2 years ago from the PC's viewpoint.
