Titanfall Xbox 360 Launch Delayed

Respawn Entertainment announced on the official Titanfall website that the launch for Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is delayed.
The Xbox 360 version was originally schedule to launch alongside the Xbox One and PC version of Titanfall on March 11. That is no longer the case. While the Xbox One and PC version still remains on track for its March 11 release as Respawn is finishing up development on the game, the Xbox 360 version could benefit from more time to put the final touches on it. As such the release date has moved from March 11 to March 25. Now the Xbox 360 version will launch two weeks after the next-gen and PC version.
Bluepoint Games is handling development duties on the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall. Vince Zampella revealed Bluepoint Games as the developer for the 360 version on Twitter on Jan. 27. Bluepoint has previously handled plenty of HD collection and other ports: notably doing the God of War Collection, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection. They also did the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita ports of Flower.
Titanfall still launches on March 11 for Xbox One and PC and on March 25 for Xbox 360.
Titanfall’s Xbox 360 version has been a mystery since Titanfall’s announcement back at E3 2013. The only information for a good while was that the developer would be handpicked by Respawn Entertainment to handle the 360 port. The fact that Zampella only revealed Bluepoint as the developer of the 360 version less than two months before the game’s launch is a bit odd. Whether the late developer reveal or two week delay means something funky is up with the Xbox 360 version remains to be seen. Bluepoint has put in some solid work doing HD ports and the Flower PS4 port is quite fantastic. So it will be interesting to see how they will cram the next-gen of first-person shooter into the current-gen (old-gen) tech. The good news is that the Xbox One and PC versions are still on track for their March 11 release date. So Xbone and PC owners will be piloting Titans very soon.
