Respawn studio head Vince Zampella tweeted the following statement earlier today announcing the beta:
There is no official word on the release date of the Titanfall Beta, but many are speculating that it will begin in February in preparation of it’s March release. So far it seems unlikely that a Beta will be coming for the Xbox 360 version of the game which is being developed by Bluepoint Games.
Due to the incredibly strict terms of agreement for the Titanfall Alpha I cannot release much information about the game, but I will say it’s shaping up to be one of the best multiplayer shooters in years. The mech combat is fun and the gameplay feels very hectic. In a very good way. Don’t be deterred by the 6-on-6 player restrictions. After playing the Alpha I can’t imagine having more than 12 possible mechs in one map.
Titanfall is scheduled to release on March 11th, 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
