Titanfall developer issues warning against beta scams


By on September 7, 2013 at 9:49 am

Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment has taken to Twitter to warn potential victims away from anybody presenting themselves as the bearer of beta keys for the multiplayer-only title.

“To help keep our fans safe from scammers, please note that all sites advertising Beta access are 100% scams,” the account advised.

Titanfall is due in the first quarter of 2014, and if hands-on previews from gamescom and PAX Prime are any indication, it’s pretty terrific. It’s already being hailed as a system-seller for Xbox One, as it’s not coming to a PlayStation platform, so it’s not very surprising that scammers have targeted it as a likely piece of bait for catching suckerfish; every new Halo and Call of Duty release similarly cast feelers out to our Xbot friends.

For those who came in late, Titanfall has giant mechs, wall-running and jetpacks. It has dedicated servers thanks to a deal with Microsoft for cloud support, and uses this cloud support to populate the world with AI friends and foes.

Developer Respawn was formed by a cabal of Infinity Ward staffers who broke away from Activision to sign a multi-title deal with EA, with a mandate to make their ideal multiplayer shooter and original IP.
