Respawn cofounder Vince Zampella says, "Sadly, we have restrictions that we couldn't avoid."
Then just tell us how to access it then !
I thought they promised an open beta yet again the lies!
they never promised an open beta imo. all their tweets only said that there would be a beta. NOT ONCE did vince or abby say open beta.
Actually they did. (Its super hard to keep up with the changes from week to week but they clear as day said it would be open) Zampella said about 3 weeks ago that there would be an open beta. but its so hard to keep track of all the spoon feeding. They retracted that about two weeks ago but said that the beta would not require a pre-order... and today they said that they would announce Beta details. The day isn't over yet but this is getting crazy. Bungee had their beta squared away months ago. It was announced on 1/27/2014 by Zempella before being officially retracted about a week and a half ago by Zempalla. I am surprised how little people pay attention to this game's official announcements given the hype surrounding the games.
Eonjay - they actually never did say it was open. http://www.reddit.com/r/Gam... This was the first day it was announced, they never used the words open beta. Just said they had a beta coming and would reveal details soon.
Has Respawn ever lied about ANYTHING?? Or is that just a poor troll attempt?
They didn't lie. They changed their minds. Its like saying that 3/11/14 360 release was a lie. Things change. Its not always a sign of sinister intentions. Why is everyone so wound tight about his effing game. The only reason I know he is right about the open beta is because I have been actually following Zampella and EA/Respawn. He announced an open beta, then things got complicated and he changed his mind. What is the big deal. What don't people get?
I'm about tired of hearing about this beta. Just put the damn thing out already. I've never seen so much "it's coming, it's coming" for anything. It's mid day and still no beta sign ups! DO IT, RESPAWN!!!
I need them to announce this soon. I keep checking twitter all day and I hate twitter. I have never used it before this. I just want to insure that I will get into the beta. I bet you have to have an origin account. I think EA is putting requirements on this that Respawn might not necessarily want. I will do whatever they want to get in though

Doesn't this come out in March? If so I'd argue it isn't a BETA to begin with, not in the real sense. It's the same crap EA does with Battlefield. A beta a month before release (if thats accurate), isn't a BETA. Its a glorified demo with the word BETA used to make gamers feel like they are a part of possible pre-release changes.
Yeah, real betas used to be like 4-6 months before launch. The funny thing about the betas for Battlefield is that they clearly don't work because BC, BC2, BF3 and BF4 all felt/played like like alphas on release.
Wow to the titanfall team: You guys are setting yourselves up to look like liars, if you guys have nothing concrete to say don't say nothing, gamers are not going to ever forgive respawn if you guys back pedal on what's been said before, I'm starting to not want to play this game with all the back and forth news that's been published, and I am a loyal Xbot
As long as it's not really limited.. after all this hype for a beta, I hope that those of us excited to give Titanfall a try can get in.
Abbie said its not very limited and that most people should have no problem getting in.
Why no open beta? you need to see how much stress the servers can take. The game comes out in less than a month this won't be a true beta it will be a demo. You can probably bet there will problems come launch day
Like he said they have restrictions.
People that owns EA games on Xbox one should get a spot?? Maybe??
Remember the days when betas were actually limited testing rounds that weren't publicly announced or used for promotion? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
well they need to keep the hype until you throw 60$ at them, after that you can argue with the man in the mirror.
