Titanfall dev teasing beta?

[UPDATE]Announcement is for release date.

by

[UPDATE] Today's Titanfall announcement was not for a beta, but rather the game's release date: March 11, 2014.

The original story is below.

Respawn Entertainment may announce a beta for its upcoming online shooter Titanfall today, according to a recent tweet from the game's official Twitter account.

"Be the First to Fall into Titanfall! Check back tomorrow for a special announcement," Respawn wrote last night, meaning the announcement is on for today, October 22.

Last month, Respawn warned of Titanfall beta scams, after several third-party websites claimed to have access to a beta for the game.

If there is indeed a multiplayer beta for Titanfall, it won't be the first time the public will get a chance to try the new game. Respawn has traveled the world showing off Titanfall at various events, including Gamescom (Germany), PAX Prime (United States), Tokyo Game Show (Japan), and the EB Games Expo (Australia), among others.

Titanfall is a multiplayer-only first-person shooter created by numerous former Call of Duty developers, including Infinity Ward cofounder Vince Zampella.

The game launches in 2014 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

That would be great, helps to see what all the hubbub is about. BF4's and COH2's open beta convinced me to preorder them so it definitely helps.

i would love to try this game.  Hope there is a beta cause the hype for this game is off the charts.  Probably the most hyped game i have seen in a long time would love to see if it lives up to it.

i really hope for a titanfall beta on the PC. the game looks nice but i have my eyes on BF4 since i love that franchise, but i want to decide which one i will commit to. even though there are a few months between them, i dont think i will get them both, and since titanfall is pretty different than things i've played before i need to try it to know if it's for me, because im much more of a BF guy than a COD and titanfall looks more COD with jetpacks and mechs than anything else.

@oo7superdave What are you talking about? This game is hardly hyped at all, that award goes to GTA. But I also am excited for this game.

@WantYouBad @oo7superdave really i guess i was watching a different E3 and gamescom.  It was everywhere and the game doesn't come out until spring of 2014 and that's if it doesn't get delayed
