Respawn Entertainment once again has reiterated that the textures and graphics seen in the Titanfall closed alpha testing period aren’t representative of what gamers should expect in the full-scale launch of the mech first-person shooter, according to a report today from Official Xbox Magazine.
Taking to Twitter to defend the game, Respawn said they’ve made it clear to those who participated in or saw leaked footage of the Titanfall closed alpha that the graphics would be better when the game fully launches in March.
“No we were very clear the Alpha textures were reduced to have smaller Alpha download,” the official Respawn Twitter account posted in response to a question if the Xbox One’s final build would use the alpha textures.
Later, when pressed on if they were just saving face due to the poor graphics, Respawn posted, “ It doesn’t benefit us to lie about that.”
As the alpha testing period came to a close earlier this month, Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe responded to questions about the game’s graphics similarly to how the developer did today. You can read that full Examiner report by clicking here.
