Respawn boss teases Titanfall beta announcement 'soon'

Co-founder says studio "will have an announcement soon"

A Titanfall beta would appear imminent as Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella teases an announcement "soon".

All eyes are on the studio to confirm a public beta for the anticipated Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC shooter, following a recent closed 'alpha' test.


Speaking via Twitter on Monday, Zampella said, "Yes, we will have an announcement soon. I'm sure no one can guess what it will be..."

According to an alleged French retailer leak, the developer will host a week-long beta for Titanfall in mid-February.

The developer insisted that last week's multiplayer testing was not a beta but "a limited technical test". It was unwilling to discuss the possibility of a public beta at the time.

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

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.
