Vince Zampella, who is the studio founder of Respawn Entertainment, has recently confirmed the fact that soon we will get the chance to enjoy Titanfall 2. Moreover, he advised fans who would like to become beta testers not to make any plans for the next two weekends, which might mean this is a possible time frame for the launching of the beta version. Lots of people got really excited following this announcement, but not everybody should be that happy: PC users will not get to test anything, since they will have to wait for the final release. Meanwhile, PS4 and Xbox One users will have the chance to test the beta in multiplayer mode.

On the Titanfall 2 blog we can find out more about this beta program. The idea behind it, according to the information posted there, is for the servers of the company to undergo a stress test and see whether they can support millions of gamers at the same time. This is especially important for the moment of the launch, when everybody is going to hit up the game and see what it’s all about.

According to Zampella’s declaration, there were two problems in what concerned the development of the game, namely a variety of hardware and an optimization with minimum specs. They are currently tweaking and changing the game, the renderer and all the effects, so the game hasn’t been tested yet for hardware compatibility in order for them to detect or handle various hardware (including CPUs, video chipsets and so on). Moreover, the team hasn’t put much effort yet into supporting the “Min Spec” option on the PC. Perhaps that’s why it’s taking so long for the game to appear on the PC, since the testing for this platform is harder than the one for consoles.
