Titanfall for Xbox 360 delayed

Game shifted to March 25 to give developer Bluepoint "time to put the finishing touches on the game."

Titanfall for Xbox 360 has been delayed, Electronic Arts announced today.

The game is now expected to arrive on March 25. The delay was necessary, EA said, so that developer Bluepoint could have extra time to "put the finishing touches on the game." The Xbox One and PC versions are unaffected and will arrive on March 11 as scheduled.

A beta for Titanfall will be held on Xbox One and PC, though Xbox 360 owners are going to be left out.

Titanfall is one of 2014's most-anticipated games and is coming exclusively to Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC thanks to an exclusive arrangement between Electronic Arts and Microsoft. The game was built by numerous former Call of Duty developers, including Zampella, who cofounded prolific Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward.

Okay so i'm new here just joined but i was looking at pre-ordering the game at amazon and when i looked to see the box art it say's on it online only and xbox live gold required. Does any body remember what happened to the Halo 2 servers seems like Microsoft might be trying to pull a fast one and it's very disappointing i don't want to get a game that i can't play in ten years sad face

If you think for one minute this is not intentional by EA and that the game is already done for all platforms I have a bridge to sell you.

Why do I get the impression this game is potentially being rushed out on all formats? Either way I'm staying away from it until I watch a couple of match videos on youtube to decide whether or not it is worth the purchase.

or in plain truth it been delayed to push Xbox One sales

Uh oh, someone's scared the 360 sales might outstrip the big boy's.

Delayed by just a couple of weeks?  I'm sure they'll get loads of polishing done for a game which must have went gold some time ago.  This reeks of a ploy to emphasise the Xbox One version

Good... Now i can just focus on Dark Souls 2 for a bit... Then get this.

What exactly is an Xbox 360 anyway?  I vaguely remember the old folk at the home reminiscing about them.

Trying to figure out what would be more fun... this game being awesome and having a great time. Oooooor it flopping miserably, and being able to enjoy endless comments of xbots wailing through their keyboards. I could even do the latter at work.


Wow, I might be a sociopath.

Not feeling very confident in this version of the game.

You are clearly digging in the dirt to find whatever you can find to go bitching around, and even with nothing to dig out of the dirt, you are still mumblings words. Dude don't be ridicules, it is very unlikely that they will look close to the other version. Perhaps, the reason you haven't seem any footages from the Xbox version, is because the Xbox 360 version looks like crap, and that's the reason for the delay

It's funny how haven't seen any "leaked" footage for the XB360 version of Titanfall. This delayed status just gives credibility to the rumors that the difference between the XB360 and XBO version is very minimal. MS doesn't want any direct comparisons between the two, since it could hurt sales. Why would a X360 owner spend $500 when they can spend $60?

Why would the past-gen take longer to finish up than the current-gen? Doesn't make sense.

I'll probably be getting the PC version since I can run at 1080p.

Glad I got the X1. Don't want to wait longer than I have to.

In other words..."We need a few extra weeks to forcibly shoehorn this next-gen game into the Xbox 360."  I look forward to true next-gen experiences that do not have to accommodate eight year old hardware.  I love my 360 but worry that they've had to make concessions for it in the game development process.

@Thanatos2k  People fail to realize that there are MILLIONS of dollars at stake.....a little lie is nothing for what most people are willing to do for a buck. There's a reason why no 360 footage has been seen as of yet. Rumors have it that the 360 version and the XBO version as nearly identical. MS wants the XBO to sell, and Titanfall is a big catalyst for this. Why would a 360 owner spend $559 when they can spend $59 for the almost the same thing?


This is what MS doesn't want...

@beuneus12 Considering EA is just a publisher and that it is the developer that codes the (buggy) game, should u not be blasting DICE?

@19James89  The feelings of the game being rushed is brought to you by the letters E and A

@steelmouth they could have totally avoided that problem by stopping support to the xbox 360 and ps3 altogether when the new consoles released forcing everyone to get the new consoles instead of trying to support both.


but you are most likely right on that

g0ldenpr0pet
g0ldenpr0pet

@Carpetfluff  Well, considering that the difference between both 360 and XBo versions are minimal....they have a good reason.


Why haven't we seen any 360 footage?

19James89
19James89

@Carpetfluff Well if I owned a 360 and I was uber hyped for this game would I really want to upgrade consoles just for that game? The answer would be a resounding no.

g0ldenpr0pet
g0ldenpr0pet

@barrybarryk  Yup. MS is banking on Titanfall to sell XBOs. When people realize that the 360 version and the XBO version of Titanfall are minimal....they won't be so quick to pull the trigger to purchase an XBO.

@barrybarryk  you obviously have no idea about software development to make a comment like this. I can tell you from experience that 2 weeks makes a huge difference, and certainly can be for polishing.  


If they really wanted to delay it to try and sell more X1's they wouldn't have waited this long to announce it, trust me it's and obvious delay. 

wallacom

@barrybarryk  then they should have delayed both PC and 360. Ill still get it for X1 and PC, X1 for fair play and PC for "unfair" play, lol.

@g0ldenpr0pet Why would you get 'leaked' footage of the 360 version when there's been no Beta for it? The same reason that there's been no 'leaked' footage for the PC version. And the 360 is being done by somebody other than Respawn, so naturally their choices for optimization for that platform are their own.


You can take off the tin-foil hat any time you like...

I also got an XB1. Glad it is not affected.

@19James89 Exactly, plus every sale on 360 is a customer MS hasn't yet managed to bring with them to next gen. I had over 600 games go through my 360(s) since launch and maybe 150 on my PS3. I always expected that trend to carry over but now there's a PS4 sat next to those two, and no urge to clear space anywhere for a One.

@TwinStripeUK @g0ldenpr0pet  Well, see in a few weeks. If you want to spend $559 on a new game, go ahead. Most sensible 360 owners will spend $60 since the the difference between both versions is very minimal....they're both 720p!! This is not rocket science...

@Aleperez75 Well 911 was set up by the government in case of emergencies, dial 911 for help. Silly.

@VakarianGirl @19James89 @Carpetfluff  I've still got both my 360 and PS3, next to my PS4 and there's still plenty I want to play on both of them; some of which isn't yet released. As far as Titanfall goes, if you really wanted to know if it's for you and weren't sure if you'd be bored of it in a couple of weeks and had a 360, surely it makes more sense to try it on there before you shell out $500+.

@g0ldenpr0pet @Archaicc @barrybarryk  your statement makes no sense. They make all the money off games, not consoles. Companies don't sandbag games.  


Anyone understands business and software gets this. Also, how do you know there is minimal differences? Have you played both versions?  


Didn't think so.  

Archaicc
Archaicc

@Carpetfluff @Archaicc @barrybarryk  nah, most likely it will have a day one update. They'll probably ship the discs early, and have the update ready. Even if they don't, they would have had to do the manufacturing 2 weeks earlier. So I don't understand what the point your making is.

@TwinStripeUK @g0ldenpr0pet YOU IDIOT! That's funny you posted this comment ago and it is now revealed that the game will be running in 792p. You did all that bashing just to make you own self look stupid.

G0ldenpr0pet was right all along a month ago.  720p XBOX 360 vs 792p XBOX ONE. It's funny how people like to use the word conspiracy theorist and here we are, the truth is revealed. Go Thanks man for being real and keep it 100. I love my 360 but these fanboys make me sick. I'm looking forward to the Xbox 360 release of Titanfall.

@g0ldenpr0pet @TwinStripeUK  Already have an XB1, and Titanfall is one of many games I'll be buying for it... Oh, and it's 1080p actually, try checking out one of the many 'leaked' Alpha footage videos you've already mentioned....


Doesn't the tin-foil hat get itchy?

You assumed I was a Sony fanboy because I loled at your unfortunate choice of games console? XD


While you are playing the inferior to PC version of Titanfall ill be skipping it altogether and playing more interesting and original games on my PC. I will have lots of fun thanks.
