Respawn: Titanfall Improvements, Xbox 360 Details; Response to Accusations

Last Updated: February 20, 2014


The Titanfall beta is almost over, and Respawn has responded to a few different questions and concerns on NeoGAF.

First, Software Engineer Rayme Vinson said the full Xbox One game will contain many “under-the-hood performance improvements” compared to the beta version. Of course, the beta itself allowed them to see additional issues that needed to be fixed and worked on before the game is released on March 11.

Next, Producer Drew McCoy confirmed the beta’s usefulness in uncovering bugs and glitches. He also added that the Xbox 360 version, which was not a part of the beta tests and won’t release until March 25, is “coming along really well.”

McCoy also responded to the accusations that Respawn has paid the media to talk about the game, in order to build up hype. He said they’ve fought for Titanfall’s attention and coverage through legitimate means, and such accusations are “the height of insulting.”

Now, we’ve heard a lot of good things about Titanfall, but we never thought Respawn was paying for the attention—after all, a lot of the excitement came from fans themselves after the game was revealed. Only the most diehard conspiracy theorists would think Respawn was paying all those people. At least there has been an official statement on the matter, which should quiet the rumors somewhat.
