Gamers waiting to play Titanfall on Xbox 360 will have to wait a couple weeks longer than their next-gen and PC counterparts, EA's Patrick Söderlund announced today. The 2 week delay is to give developer Bluepoint some additional time to make sure their 360 port of the game is up to snuff. Here's the full statement:
The launch of Titanfall is quickly approaching, and we've been fired up to see how much anticipation there is for this game. The team at Respawn is putting the finishing touches on a game that I think will truly demonstrate the possibilities of this new generation. The Xbox One and PC versions will be available on March 11 in North America and beginning March 13 in Europe.
In these last few weeks before launch, Respawn is in the final stages of polishing the Xbox One and PC versions of the game. Bluepoint is doing the same with the Xbox 360 version. To give them the time they need to put the finishing touches on the current-gen version of the game, we are moving the Xbox 360 ship date to March 25 in North America and March 28 in Europe. The extra two weeks will ensure the full world of Xbox gamers has an awesome experience.
All three platforms have the amazing intensity and dynamic gameplay between Titans and Pilots and we can't wait to see what everyone thinks when they start playing the full game next month.
Respawn Entertainment also confirmed last week that the upcoming beta for the game will only be available for Xbox One and PC players. Hopefully this isn't a sign that the 360 version of the title isn't very good. It's hard to know what to expect at this point as EA has yet to show any screenshots or footage from that version of the title.
