Titanfall on Xbox 360 delayed. Again

For console gamers in South Africa, the Xbox 360 would have had to have been the platform of choice for Respawn’s mech-battler Titanfall. Before the whole thing was denied a local release, anyway.  Only it’s starting to look like that version is not only ugly, but runs poorly too. And that rumours been given a bit of a shot in the arm, as the Xbox 360 version has been delayed a second time.

EA’s confirmed that the 360 version of the game, developed by port-factory Bluepoint Games has been delayed to April 8. It was originally scheduled for release at the same time as the other versions on March 11, but was delayed to March 25. Many speculated it was to sell more Xbox Ones, but it seems more and more that the game just lacked polish – with reports of it running below 720p, at 30fps.

It’s odd that we’ve not seen a single screen shot or video of the Xbox 360 version running.

“Now, I want to update everyone on Titanfall for Xbox 360 in development with Bluepoint Games,” says EA’s blog.  “I’ve been playing the game a lot, and it is fantastic.  But we see a few things that can be made even better, so we’re giving Bluepoint a little more time to do just that and deliver an epic Titanfall experience for Xbox 360 players. Titanfall for Xbox 360 will now be releasing on April 8 in North America, and beginning on April 11 in Europe.  The game will feature the same 6v6 gameplay, maps, modes, weapons and Burn Cards as the Xbox One and PC versions of the game.”

Of course, none of this matters much to us here in South Africa, where the game won’t be released (Until saayyyyy September). Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t play it. Importing copies, or picking up digital codes for the PC version works just fine.

I’ve been having quite a bit of fun with Titanfall, but I do worry about its longevity. Those limited maps and game modes are probably going to start wearing thin soon enough.

    I’m sure some places will sell the game anyway, it’s a free country and they can import it and sell it if they want.

      That’s not how the CPA works. What do you mean by “it’s a free country”? They’ll be fined if they breach the rules.

    lol @ announcement. Good job on telling everyone that it will have the same content, really scraping the barrel for a positive comment there.

      That explains the blue glow coming from the cockpit. It’s got a built-in fish tank.

    I wonder how EA defines the word “Epic”

      On the amount of money they make. It is also the definition of success. As in “BF4 had a successful launch cause look at all our money”

        Ja nee, Those bastards have a funny way of looking at a glass half full or empty. Its honestly like this “Chicken lickens new chilli sliders sold like hot cakes, and in 2 hours the entire country was sold out!!, but the chicken was old and made the entire country sick.” guys look at bank account ” Was a HUGE success”

        (in no way was I pointing out chicken Licken is bad, nor did this actually happen – no chickens were harmed in the making of this comment)

    “But we see a few things that can be made even better, so we’re giving
    Bluepoint a little more time to do just that and deliver an epic Titanfall experience for Xbox 360 players.” Isn’t that what a patch is for? I really can’t handle another Aliens:Colonial Marines.

    A 14 day delay really is not a lot of time to change much about the game… If it still needs polish, shouldn’t they just bite the bullet and delay it by, say, a month? Then the developers have some time to effect proper changes.

    Still, not sure the 360 version is worth it… At least with the XBone or PC version, you knew it was being developed by the guys who actually came up with the game in the first place – Respawn…
