Respawn puts gag order on ‘Titanfall’ alpha testers; No news on beta testing

Respawn Entertainment confirmed that the Titanfall developers had indeed sent out invitations to a select few players to do alpha testing on the upcoming next-gen mech shooter, but, according to a report today from GameSpot, gamers aren’t likely to hear any reviews of the game if the studio has anything to say about it.

The Titanfall developers confirmed the alpha testing emails via Twitter after reports from gamers surfaced earlier this morning. You can read more of that Examiner report by clicking here.

“As some of you are asking, we are doing a limited technical test. It’s not a beta, and we don’t have any beta news at the moment,” Respawn said in the post.

Video, spoken or written reviews or news about the game from its alpha testers, however, is prohibited as Titanfall details are “strictly not sharable,” according to another post from Respawn.

And a beta testing period seems to not be totally out of the question, according to a previous report from GameSpot in which Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella said the studios is “definitely thinking about it.”

A beta could put the studio in a time crunch, however, as Titanfall is due out for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows PC on March 11.
