Titanfall 2 Won’t Have A Beta On PC

Cite two important reasons for the decision.

Titanfall 2 (3)

Alright guys, there’s some bad news for you if you are a fan of Titanfall, and if your primary gaming platform is the PC- it appears as though Respawn will not be having any beta testing for the upcoming sequel to the 2014 hit shooter on PC. Posting on the website, Respawn were pretty frank about their reasons for this decision, citing what are, in their opinion, two very important reasons.

“We’re still making a lot of tweaks and changes to the renderer, the game, and effects so we haven’t run the game through the hardware compatibility lab yet to detect and handle a large variety of hardware – video cards, CPUs etc,” Respawn said, noting that the sheer number and variety of computer builds is not something they are ready to deal with at this stage yet. “Quite frankly, we aren’t ready to deal with that yet, we are still making the game better. We also haven’t done enough work to fully support our ‘Min Spec’ on PC yet. So, currently the PC game isn’t as easy to throw out for testing as the console is, because of the additional variables and configurations that we need to support.”

Respawn also noted a second reason for not wanting to beta test on PC, and that is potential data mining, which may leak and spoil a lot of the game’s secrets before Respawn want them leaked and spoiled. “Also, because the single player story has some wonderful secrets that we really want to preserve for launch, we also have to worry about leaks. Our wonderfully curious PC players have proven in the past that they will dig out anything they can, and there’s a risk that they could spoil some of our single player,” they said.

These are fair reasons, backed up by sound reasoning in terms of development priorities, as well as creative decisions. However, this news will probably come as a disappointment to a lot of PC Titanfall fans who were hoping to go hands on with the game ahead of launch. I guess the good news is, they won’t have to wait for long before they can play the game anyway- Titanfall 2 is due out on October 26 this year.
