Retailer advertises Titanfall beta for February

Alleged ad in French game store suggests trial may be imminent

A week-long beta for Titanfall may be taking place in mid February, according to alleged photos from inside a French website.

Xboxygen claims to have received a photo taken in a Micromania store in France, stating that a beta for the game will begin on February 14.


The site also claims a source has revealed that the beta will run until February 19, and will be exclusively available at Micromania stores in France and GameStop stores elsewhere.

CVG has contacted EA for comment.

Last week EA appeared to have outed a closed beta when it began sending invites to 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.

However, EA and Respawn Entertainment shunned these claims, stating that it was merely conducting "a limited technical test."

"It is not a beta, and we don't have any beta news at the moment," a statement read.

The Titanfall release date is March 11, according to EA's schedule. The highly anticipated Respawn shooter is generally considered as a key asset for Microsoft and its Xbox business. It will ship on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
