There was some confusion today about what new Titanfall information would be revealed at the game’s midnight launch event in Austin on Monday.
Speaking on Larry Hryb’s podcast, Major Nelson Radio, Senior Xbox Evangelist at Microsoft Jeff Rubenstein said that in addition to playing through maps we haven’t seen in the beta, the event, which will start at 11pm EST, will be “showcasing the future of Titanfall.”
“We don’t know what it is,” Hryb said. “They just came to us and said ‘we’re going to announce something.’”
Excited fans immediately took to Twitter, asking Respawn’s Vince Zampella what it means. “For those asking about the 'future of titanfall' announcement, I'm confused as to what that is,” Zampella said this morning. “We did not sell [Titanfall] to [Microsoft].”
An hour later, Zampella said that he talked to Geoff Keighley, and that it looks like the “‘future’ thing is just something fun. Not how I would have described it, but still fun.”
This week, Respawn confirmed that Titanfall would include a $25 season pass containing three packs, which include maps and "other content yet to be determined."
Whatever “the future of Titanfall” might refer to, you’ll be able to find out by watching Xbox’s Twitch channel, which will stream the event live.
