Titanfall beta still a possibility
Titanfall community manager Abbie Heppe, when asked about the potential for an open beta, responded, "It's possible." Unfortunately, that's all she had to offer as Respawn has been pretty tight-lipped about the testing.
Respawn began sending emails for alpha last week to select Xbox One owners. The studio clarified that it was not a beta, and that those invited were strictly prohibited from posting any sort of information or footage. As with most of these technical tests, bug finding seems to be the main importance. It's unclear how long Titanfall will remain in this stage, but we'll be sure to keep an eyes open for any sort of beta opportunities.
