Titanfall releases on Tuesday, but as it is these days… copies have already hit the streets and many have gotten the game early. Word is from Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella that players are not going to be banned for playing the game early, but those playing the game early should not be surprised if servers go down for updates and such as the team makes final preparations for the game’s release. Respawn has no intention of banning users for playing the game early.
We still have no idea what all is contained the day one patch for Titanfall, but we suspect that Respawn might give us an idea of what is included in the day one patch at some point in the future. Early buzz on Titanfall still remains strong, despite the negativity coming out of the PlayStation factions complaining that they are not getting a release of the game as well.
There is a lot riding on the release of Titanfall for both Microsoft and publisher Electronic Arts. It will be interesting to see if this is the push that the Xbox One needs to finally get things moving in the right direction. Despite the two week delay in the release of the Xbox 360 version of the game, we suspect that it will sell very well and exceed the sales estimates that have been projected for the Xbox 360 version. We also expect that Titanfall will become the best-selling game in the history of the Xbox One within a couple of weeks post release.
