Titanfall goes gold -- Are you taking a sick day March 11?

"We're gold!!!!!!," Respawn Entertainment exclaims.

Titanfall, the upcoming multiplayer shooter from Respawn Entertainment, has gone gold--meaning development is finished and it's headed to mass production.

"We're gold!!!!!!," Respawn Entertainment wrote on Twitter last night. Accompanying the enthusiastic tweet was an image of the Xbox One version packaged and ready to go.

Titanfall launches March 11 for Xbox One and PC, while the Xbox 360 version is slated to arrive on March 25. It's unclear if that version, developed externally at Bluepoint Games, has also gone gold.

Developed by a team of former Call of Duty veterans including Infinity Ward cofounder Vince Zampella, Titanfall is expected to be one of 2014's biggest games. The game is coming only to Xbox and PC thanks to an exclusive arrangement with Microsoft.

Titanfall runs in 792p on Xbox One and requires a 20GB install.

On March 11, Titanfall fans can not only pick up a copy of the game, but also a special $500 Xbox One bundle and a $65 limited-run controller. For more on Titanfall, be sure to read GameSpot's new feature The Next Big Game: Titanfall.

I'm not taking a sick day for Titanfall. It's a regular day off for me. I don't get why people are so hyped up for this game. My guess, is that it is XBO owners who NEED to justify the $500 price tag (since nothing else has so far). I have an XBO, and I'll be getting it for the PC, because I cannot seem to shell out $50+ for a 720p game. No way in hell. I've played the XBO and PS4 versions of CoD Ghosts,and the visual disparity is apparent.

I've got the whole week booked off - and we don't even get it in the UK until the 14th!!! I think I'll spend the first few days sleeping, so that I can get away without having to at the weekend, :) !

I would take a month off for Dark Souls 2, but not a minute for Titanfall. I already have Tuesdays off but I have to go in at 2 AM on Wednesday so that pretty much screws my Tuesdays up. I won't let that get in the way of DKSII.

ROFL!  Guru meditation number from the discussion, just like the old Amiga days!


Speaking of olden days... who gets "sick days" anymore?  Must be a European thing.

Good for the team. I look forward to seeing how the online holds up after release and after the whole gaming press take a whack at it. We'll see if the hype train can be stopped.

I don't miss work especially not for a MP FPS.  I might have picked it up if it had a good single player campaign, but Respawn has decided to go the way of Activision and CoD.  Besides, co-op is a much better option...come on Bugthesda Skyrim Co-op!!

Feel that rumbling?  The ground subtly vibrating?  That's the pent-up rage of all the PS4 lovers approaching the boiling point!  It's over 9000!  It's going to explode!

Don't get me wrong... I do own a PS4.  All kidding aside though I played the Titanfall beta on PC and Xbox One and I have to say that if you're playing exclusively on the PS4 you are really going to be missing out.  It's a truly remarkable game worthy of the hype it's getting.  All of these people calling it a bad/mediocre game I would be willing to bet have not played it.  I don't understand why we have to pick sides and then feel the need to trash any exclusive on the competing platform.  Don't knock it until you're played it.

792p? What kind of resolution is that? HDTVs are 1080p and 720p. If you can't do 1080p, then just do 720p... at least the game would have a more consistent framerate. Not that it matters, the Xbone version will be the worst version anyway.

The worst version of an already mediocre game.

I always thought gold meant a number of sold copies, like platinum either half a million or a million sales.

Already took a day off for the South Park game :-( Plus finals coming up. Spring break is when I'll be cracking out!

Can't freakin wait! Who cares about what resi this runs in I care it doesn't have bugs and glitches which from the looks of it so far its off to a good start the BETA ran flawlessly for me.

Don't worry Sony Fanboys. I bet you this game is released on PS4. Just like Mass Effect was. EA won't miss out on making millions this won't stay a MS exclusive.

I also find it funny how much the Sony fan boys hate this game, you can tell they are green with envy.

@dhsk8sb Hmm, quantum mechs?  Say you have a bunch of mechs in a dropship.  Each mech has one atom of a radioactive isotope on board and a rather amazing instrument that detects when the atom splits.  The mech will leave the dropship at that time and run out between two buildings (owned by Schlitz) then into the open world.  Unfortunately, the open world is not as open as one would hope and the mechs all smash into a wall 50m beyond the two buildings.  Calculate the interference pattern created by the mechs running through the Schlitz.

We can play it on the 360 too. But I won't. I'll be enjoying the stick of truth and Dark souls 2. Followed by Second Son. Shit I gotta buy a bunch of games, dammit.

@PJthePlayer2  I played it and didn't find it to be the pinnacle of FPS games like some people seem to make it out to be.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but it wouldn't make me wish I had an XBox if I didn't have a PC on which to play it.

@Tiwill44  It won't be 792p....it had too many framerate drops at beta. They need to bump it down at 720p with 60fps locked.

jameston80
jameston80

@Tiwill44 I would totally disagree with you, I played the alpha and the beta, this game is fun and it's one of the biggest games of this year, just because you don't like the XBOX ONE you don't have to trash it here, go into your ps4 articles and talk all the trash you want there, this game is only on Xbox consoles not sony consoles, and your just jealous !!!!

jameston80

@divinejester no gold means its in print and they have 500,00 copies printed i believe, they are gonna need at least 1.5 million more for launch day !!! Gonna be big !!!!

@Romayo83 no sorry you are wrong, didn't you read the article a couple months ago, Titanfall is never coming to another console for the life of it they said !!! Yeeee hawwww !!!

@christhevillan Just fucking stop it. God why do you feel the need to add fuel. I don't care about TItanfall because it's not my kind of game whatsoever. Do you sleep better at night thinking "fanboys" are upset? What do you get out of it? I hope you are under the age of at most 20.

und3c1ph3r3d

@christhevillan And then there's me. I just hate the game. I suppose I'm not exactly a Sony fanboy... or any kind of fanboy. So maybe I don't count?

Tiwill44

@jameston80 Wow, did I hit a nerve? I don't even have a PS4, and I don't plan on getting one. At least not until they have more than just Infamous, which I doubt will happen.

@jameston80 @Tiwill44 I love how people automatically assume that someone is a PS4 fanboy if they have a negative opinion of the XBone.  

Darion350
Darion350

@jameston80 @Romayo83  Doesn't mean the PS4 won't see Titanfall 2, which if the way CoD and Battlefield games are churned out is any indicator, the PS4 will see it next year.   Yee haww to that.  :P

"I don't care about Titanfall" you say yet you post on news about it!

PS I'm not the child who feels the need to swear in my posts.

@und3c1ph3r3d your right, you dont count!!! cause you haven't even tried the game, I and all my friends who have played the alpha and/or beta love this game, and we are all getting it on day one !!!! Sorry sony Fanboys !!!

Tiwill44
Tiwill44

@jameston80 Yes, because it has many excellent exclusives and free online. The PS4 has neither.

Tiwill44

@Darion350 Pretty much.

And to be honest, I'm not really impressed by The Order's gameplay so far. It may have good graphics, but... if the game is just gonna be another cinematic / story-driven cover shooter with QTEs, well, let's just say it won't be my cup of tea.

I don't have an opinion on Destiny yet. The first trailer at E3 made the game look boring, but that's only because they kept staring at walls and moved slowly to show off the graphics. But even if it ends up looking awesome, it's coming out on PS3 too, so I won't buy a new system just for that.

Darion350
Darion350

@Tiwill44  I'm on the same boat as you.  Hopefully The Order and Destiny will also be good, since that'll probably be my deciding factor on getting a PS4.  Most every other PS4 game isn't that interesting to me or I can pick it up for the PC.

It's obvious they want to publish titanfall and battlefield on different years. Lol. It's EA were talking about here! Ofcourse they want to maximize there profit! Titanfall 2 will also be on ps4. They thought there would be more xbox ones back in 2012.

@jameston80 @Darion350 @Romayo83  I'd be surprised if EA could go that long know all that extra money is just sitting there. But ultimately no one knows but the studios. Just think it's hilarious that M$ paid off Respawn and EA to get Titanfall. And people still aren't buying Xboxes. That's what it looks like when you try to screw over your core fans (of which I used to be one.) 

jameston80
jameston80

@Darion350 @jameston80@Romayo83no they are not going to do a Titanfall every year like a cod, and as for battlefield they don't release them every year, it's been 2 to 3 years on Battlefields, i've read somewhere that they want Titanfall on opposite years of Battlefields, since Battlefield 4 released last year and Titan fall is this year, it will  be more than likely you won't see a Titanfall 2 for at least another 2 years Yee Haw to that !!!

jameston80
jameston80

@bulletprooff14 ok that is fine that you bought a ps4, but it's the idiots who did buy a ps4 and they come into the articles like this one all about Xbox one and they have to troll, go into the sony posts and talk $hit there, i am not saying you are doing that, but others are!!

bulletprooff14
bulletprooff14

People tend to say you "are" who you hang out with. It's obvious you would hang out with people that share your same taste. Well this saying doesn't count for everyone. There are odd balls like me. All my friends have a xbox one even my best friend but I chose a PS4 instead.

jameston80

@Bigjoe275 no way man ! see mine does that too but i didn't want to brag and make the ps4 owners more jealous than they already are, but ya, mine does that and actually cooks dinner for me before i get home too. :)

@jameston80 @und3c1ph3r3d  Holy shit, do you sleep with your XBone?  und3c1ph3r3d probably played the beta and he can hate the game all he wants.
