Earlier today Titanfall‘s Xbox.com page stated that gamers would be able to pre-load the game before its March 11th release. Microsoft has since released a statement revealing that there will be no pre-purchase or pre-load option for the game.
“We believe in digital distribution, and are proud to give gamers a variety of ways to purchase and experience their games. However, pre-purchase and pre-download for Titanfall for Xbox One will not be available from Xbox Store. We’ll continue to strike a balance between digital distribution and its benefits, while supporting physical games purchase through our retail partners.”
Microsoft has also deactivated the page that originally said players would be able to pre-purchase and pre-load Titanfall.
