Promo Poster Indicates Titanfall Beta Coming on Feb. 14 [UPDATED]
UPDATE: Respawn Entertainment’s Vince Zampella revealed the beta in a tweet earlier tonight, although he did not confirm the timeframe for the event.
#supersecret announcement time. I’m sure no one has been able to guess from the leaks. PC and XboxOne Beta! Details in the coming days

According to an promotional poster that’s just gone up in French game stores, the Titanfall beta will begin on Valentine’s Day, February 14.
Word of the beta follows a brief Titanfall “alpha trial” last week that, based on the many NDA-breaking videos of gameplay footage from the event, went off without a hitch.
I contacted Respawn about the image and for additional beta details (North American date, PC beta?) and will update this post with any response. I’ll ring my local GameStop when they open at 10 a.m. Eastern to see if they’ve been sent any of these Titanfall promo posters, as well.
And it wouldn’t be a Titanfall beta story without the Hammond Robotics phone line that Respawn has been using to tease a beta since early December:
If you would like to speak to a sales associate, call us at 1 (888) 88TITAN.

Sorry, the phone line still plays the same recorded message that mentions a “live-fire beta test,” and no additional details are provided.
We’ll keep you posted.
