It’s official, a Titanfall beta is coming to Xbox One and PC.

That’s according Respawn Entertainment head Vince Zampella, who tweeted overnight, "#supersecret announcement time. I'm sure no one has been able to guess from the leaks. PC and XboxOne Beta! Details in the coming days”

The leaks to which Zampella refers include an image of a poster snapped at a French retailer, indicating a February 14th release. However, while the beta has now finally been confirmed, the date remains unverified.

Meanwhile, Zampella also tweeted that Bluepoint Games is working on the Xbox 360 version of the game. Bluepoint is best known for handling the HD ports of the likes of God of War Collection, The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on PS3.

In his tweet, Zampella described Bluepoint as an “amazing team.”

Titanfall is out March 11th in North America and March 13th in Europe.

So, you give the 360 port job to a company that knows the PS3. Great...

@1 Don't be jelly. It was boring.
I don't understand the hype. It is only multiplayer. No coop, no single player, no story. Also, despite the developer's claims, 6v6 doesn't work very well. I had to keep checking the scoreboard just to make sure there were still 6 players on the other team. Constantly fighting off waves of brain dead AI in order to get to the actual players.

Titanfall is Call of Duty, if CoD was completely stripped of content and features.
But I'm not disappointed or surprised. I wasn't expecting much to begin with. What is so special about this game that everyone is excited about? The parkour elements are cool and all, but that alone will only keep me interested for so long...

#5, 6. I have no interest in this game but remember: Alphas and Betas do not represent the finished product. You should expect the A.I. to be improved by the time the game comes out.

Poor 360, no beta for it and the 360 version isn't being developed by IW either.

I'm glad the Xbox 360 version has been handed off to another developer, hopefully that won't effect the integrity of the Xbox One version.

@5 why don't you write is a whole review? I mean based on your limited experience in an Alpha build you must know all there is to know about the game already.

All the positive previews must be BS based on your comment.

@12 Actually, Respawn is pretty much Infinity Ward. After Jason West and Vince Zampella were fired and started up Respawn, there was a mass exodus of employees who left and joined them there.

The Infinity award that exists now is a shell of their former selves, which you can see in the rapidly declining quality in their games.

@14 Regardless of the build, it's already confirmed about the limited amount of content, being only multiplayer and all. That is my main gripe.
And alpha is just the testing and optimization phase. While the main game will obviously be improved. The core game will remain the same. And unless they are going to add a campaign and/or coop with the last couple months left, then my opinion won't change.

What's the point of adding that stuff? Most people don't buy call of duty for the single player, same with battlefield 90% of people that buy either game goes right to the multiplayer. So yeah it hurts for some but most people rather play online. But it this way this is the greatest example ever! If there was a call of duty in the making this year that has online multiplayer only it would be the biggest seller of the me no...but I'm only 1 person like you.

@20 - I do. I hate playing online, I don't find it fun. I truly suck at it and am not afraid to admit it. I'd say about 90% of the online achievements I've unlocked in those four games I've boosted.

I won't be playing this, Destiny, The Division or Battlefont because they are online only. Am I giving up playing great games, maybe, but I won't pay to play a game I know I won't enjoy.

Think before you generalize how the millions of other people in the world should play their games...

I can understand you not enjoying online competitive multiplayer, but avoiding online co-op or online single player is going to make you miss out awfully if you skip Destiny and the Division on principle. They look to be a game built for everybody and anybody.

Titanfall is obviously competitive and if you hate the genre that badly then sure, give it a miss.

Well, now we know who is doing the 360 port, and they are an experienced studio to boot.

@22 Destiny has an offline mode...

@22 I don't get people like you, no offence. People not like playing multiplayer for whatever the reason is really weird to hear to the ear of a game that has dumb AI in single player of anygame. You miss 50%-90% of what the game is built for to talk or communicate and build confidence of your game play, to talk to random people in the lobby or Not. If you don't want to handle "dicks", go to party chat simple enough and just air out the hardcore trashtalker's or talk to people your friends with. I play lonewolf alot just to test my skills with randoms/friend and I dont mind playing either way.

OT: I played the Titanfall Alpha I didnt like it, its fun for a quick fix shooter but will deffinately gets tiredsome until you read the kills of the player and you see how your team lost...STUPID retarded AI omg they are pointless. Should be 12v12 limit to 6 titans max on each team... if any of you played the Alpha you can see why!

I think there's a generational clash going on here... all the young guns seem to love online and would be happy to have an online only game. "Old" people like me (25) still remember when games were only single player story and sometimes couldn't even utilize a second controller.

Regardless of preference, the games are built to make money. People buy the games to have fun. Whether your fun is in your underwear alone in a dark basement playing SP or MP doesn't really matter. Can't believe how many people jump on someone for sharing their opinion in a reasonable way. @5 was just sharing his experience. If you played the alpha and disagree how about sharing what you found good instead of hating on his comment? Looks like @6 and @26 agreed though and they are the only other people that mentioned playing the alpha so...

OT: I've been hesitant about Titanfall because of all the rave reviews and the fact that it looks like COD to me. I'll probably try the beta and see if the game is worth it before making a judgement.
