It’s a luxury we take for granted these days, the time when prior to release, we get to put our most anticipated games to the test, in Betas. Unfortunately, players wanting to play the game on PC will have to wait longer, as Respawn Entertainment has announced that Titanfall 2 will not have a beta on the platform.
In a blog post by Respawn earlier today, the developers have explained their reasoning, citing two big issues:
The first, as explained by Founder and CEO of Respawn Entertainment, Vince Zampella, is because they don’t feel that the PC version of the game is in an optimised enough state to be released to the public.
Additionally, Zampella notes that the prominence of data mining has also affected this decision:
“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.”
Zampella understands it’s a disappointment, but states it will allow the developers to concentrate on the “real purpose of the tech test and focus on the server stability and scalability”
Titanfall 2 will launch on the 28th of October, and the open beta for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will probably reveal itself in the next few weeks.
