Has South Africa been denied Titanfall? Yes. Yes it has.

Here’s some worrying news for those excited for EA’s biggest game this year. Apparently, Titanfall has been cancelled in South Africa. That, according to Mweb Gamezone, seems to be the case for digital copies of the game purchased via EA’s Origin digital distributions service.

One of their readers alerted them to their Origin Pre-order being cancelled – with the report stating that the order was binned because network tests in South Africa showed the game to perform sub-optimally.


In our own tests of the beta, the game suffered with pretty bad latency, but was still more than playable, which makes this decision pretty baffling. If true, there’s going to be a small riot, especially since it’s easily the most hyped game this year.

Ea’s confirmed the cancellation via Facebook. 

After conducting recent online tests for Titanfall, we found that the performance rates in South Africa were not as high as we need to guarantee a great experience, so we have decided not to release Titanfall in South Africa at this time. 

We understand this is a disappointment for local fans and will keep fans posted on any future plans regarding the release of Titanfall in South Africa

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
