Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment’s highly anticipated shooter Titanfall will not meet its previously scheduled March 11 release date. Well, at least not on the Xbox 360 that is.
Although still scheduled to be released for the Xbox One and Windows PC in North America and Europe on March 11 and 13, respectively, the Xbox 360 edition of the title is running a little behind schedule apparently. Now set for March 25 in North America and March 28 in Europe, the delay of Titanfall was a result of the title still needing some polish, according to EA’s executive vice president Patrick Söderlund.
In these last few weeks before launch, Respawn is in the final stages of polishing the Xbox One and PC versions of the game. Bluepoint is doing the same with the Xbox 360 version. To give them the time they need to put the finishing touches on the current-gen version of the game, we are moving the Xbox 360 ship date to March 25 in North America and March 28 in Europe. The extra two weeks will ensure the full world of Xbox gamers has an awesome experience.
It was just revealed a short while ago that Bluepoint was working on the Xbox 360 version, so perhaps EA underestimated how long it would take to properly port the game over. Regardless, it is still unfortunate for Xbox 360 owners who were anticipating Titanfall, but at least the delay is only a relatively short two weeks.
