After spending the most romantic weekend of the year – Valentine's Day – with robot mech murder-fest Titanfall it's been really hard to part ways with the beta since it closed out last week. Polygon, speaking with developer Respawn Entertainment assured us that our baby is all right for the March 11 release.
Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe confirmed the successful beta saw “around two million unique users playing during the beta.”
But successful beta or not the team's work is not done as they're “still look[ing] for tweaks to certain weapons or other things,” she says, “"The designers spent a lot of time watching videos and streams of people playing to try and look and see how they were abusing things or not understanding things."
So can gamers expect a flawless victory – make that launch – of Titanfall on the Xbox One next month? "You never want to say that everything is going to be perfect," Heppe said. "Obviously there are things that can change. But you don't want to say, 'oh, no, there will still be problems,' because you don't want to give people a lack of confidence in what you're doing. I think that this beta was really about giving people confidence that not only will we be communicative with them, but we're actively trying to work out any bugs now."
