Invites sent out for a Titanfall 'trial' are not related to a full beta, insists developer Respawn Entertainment.
The studio appeared to have outed a closed beta when it recently began sending invites a select few players to take part in "an exclusive trial for an upcoming EA title on Microsoft's Xbox One", with a link directing players to a Titanfall website.
In a statement via Twitter, Respawn said, "As some of you are asking, we are doing a limited technical test. It is not a beta, and we don't have any beta news at the moment."
The rep later went on to stipulate that the trial is "small" and "not open to the public". They also stated that players will be forbidden from posting information regarding the trial (although such agreements are often broken as footage and info commonly leak out of closed tests).
It is unclear how many users will be invited to the beta trial, but it is widely suggested that invites are being sent at random to Battlefield 4 players with a registered Origin account.
The Titanfall release date is March 11, according to EA's schedule. The highly anticipated Respawn Entertainment shooter is generally considered as a key asset for Microsoft and its Xbox business. It will ship on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
