Delay to "ensure the full world of Xbox gamers has an awesome experience."
While Respawn and EA are preparing 'Titanfall' for a March 11th release, the 360 version has been in production over at Bluepoint games. Today, EA announced that the 360 version of Titanfall' will not be shipping until March 25th in North America and March 28th in Europe.
From EA, "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.
"All three platforms have the amazing intensity and dynamic gameplay between Titans and Pilots and we can't wait to see what everyone thinks when they start playing the full game next month. "
Two weeks is relatively small delay for such a game, and it's possible that resources at EA will benifit from a staggered release. On the other hand, the first two weeks of 'Titanfall's release is likely to put a strain on the new game's online infrastructure.
