EA: Xbox 360 Version Of Titanfall Delayed To March 25
Titanfall is scheduled for a March 11th launch on PC and the Xbox One, but the mech shooter hybrid won’t arrive on the Xbox 360 until March 25th. EA explains that the delay will allow Bluepoint Games enough time to polish its version of Titanfall.

Bluepoint has worked on several other game ports and revisions in the past, including the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection, and the God of War Collection. Original titles include PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and Blast Factor.
Patrick Söderlund, EA;s Executive Vice President of EA Studios, also weighed in on the delay,
“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.”
So no change for the PC and next-gen (which should be current-gen now, right?) kids, but the Xbox 360 crowd has to wait a few weeks. If you’re planning on buying Titanfall for the 360, drop your thoughts in the comments.
