Titanfall release date on Xbox 360 explained: “a better game a few weeks later”

This week as the Titanfall Beta gameplay comes to a close, the one group of users not able to play the game thus far comes to the forefront: Xbox 360 users. These ravenous users of the past generation’s Microsoft-made console have been rumbling about the release date for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall being later than the Xbox One / PC - that date is March 25th, mind you, while the Xbox One and PC will see the game released on the 11th.

In other words - if you were bummed that you'd not be getting as much Titanfall Beta time as possible due to the down-time this weekend, have no fear! The Titanfall Beta has been extended "at least a day".

UPDATE: Respawn Entertainment has decided to make this an OPEN Beta!
