Respawn on Titanfall Xbox 360 Delay: A Better Game is Better Than an Unfinished One
Bluepoint pushed to “have all the time they need” to make the Xbox 360 version great.
Titanfall’s Xbox One and PC beta has been a resounding success, but there’s still some concern over the Xbox 360 version. This is due to (1) There being no Xbox 360 beta, and (2) This version has been delayed by an additional two weeks to allow for further polishing. The latter usually is enough to fuel speculation of…well, just about anything, from the hardware not being able to handle the game to Bluepoint Games failing to put out a decent port on time.
Producer Drew McCoy has a different take though. Speaking on NeoGAF, he said that, “For all the speculation going on about the 360 version. Its coming along really well, Bluepoint is full of phenomenally talented devs. We (being Respawn) have been pushing for them to have all the time they need to make it as good as possible, which means extra time for them to polish it up.
“We’d all like it to be day and date, but a better game a few weeks later is better than an unfinished one earlier.”
We’ll find out when Titanfall releases on the Xbox 360 on March 25th in North America and March 28th in Europe. The Xbox One and PC versions will be out on March 11th/14th.
