While Xbox One gamers are having fun with the much hyped FPS Titanfall, Xbox 360 owners have been left in dust. Unfortunately, the wait is not yet over since Titanfall's Xbox 360 release has been delayed until April.
Titanfall is Respawn Entertainment's latest title. The game was launched on the Xbox One last March 11 and following a smooth ride for the first couple of hours, excited gamers were blindsided by a server error. For a large part of the launch day, Xbox Live servers went down due to a problem with its "Xbox Live Core Services."
The latest hiccup with the Titanfall multi-platform launch involves the XBox 360, and many gamers are not too pleased about the latest development. The game was originally scheduled to be released for the Xbox 360 at the same time as the PC and Xbox One launch. However, the launch was postponed to a March 28 release date. In a new blog post, EA stated that the launch date was moved yet again to an April release date. In an effort to explain the delays, EA says that the new title is currently being tweaked to improve the general experience for Xbox 360 gamers.
"Titanfall for Xbox 360 will now be releasing on April 8 in North America, and beginning on April 11 in Europe," said EA executive vice president Patrick Soderlund. "The game will feature the same 6v6 gameplay, maps, modes, weapons and Burn Cards as the Xbox One and PC versions of the game."
There have been several reports indicating that the Xbox 360 conversion suffered from frame rate issues. The issues are unconfirmed but hopefully, the finished version of the game will run smoothly on the aging console.
"Now, I want to update everyone on Titanfall for Xbox 360 in development with Bluepoint Games. I've been playing the game a lot, and it is fantastic," Soderland said. "But we see a few things that can be made even better, so we're giving Bluepoint a little more time to do just that and deliver an epic Titanfall experience for Xbox 360 players."
Microsoft is currently betting on Titanfall to help boost the sales of the Xbox One. The company has bundled the game with its latest console in order to get more gamers to switch platforms. The bundle is currently priced at $500, which means that potential Xbox One owners get to save $60 on the package.
