Respawn 'definitely thinking about' a Titanfall beta

Studio co-founder also says Kinect "didn't fit" the upcoming shooter

Respawn Entertainment is considering running a Titanfall beta.

Addressing the possibility of a beta during the Spike VGA Awards at the weekend, studio co-founder Vince Zampella said: "We're definitely thinking about it. We don't have an answer yet, but we're definitely thinking about it."


Zampella also confirmed that the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Titanfall won't feature any kind of Kinect support, noting that Microsoft's device "didn't fit the game", GameSpot reports.

Respawn also used VGX to reveal footage of two new Titanfall Titan classes. Zampella said Titanfall is "content locked" and that development is now a matter of balancing and refinement.

Officially revealed at E3 in July, Titanfall went on to be named Best of Show at the E3 Game Critics Awards.

CVG said in a Titanfall preview earlier this year: "Mixing daring acrobatics with disciplined FPS play is a wondrous, free-flowing merger of two genres. This is wire-fu warfare. This is how much fun we would have had if Soap and co entered The Matrix."

EA has announced a Titanfall release date of March 11, 2014. The title will be exclusive to Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
