According to a report by IGN Africa, the Titanfall beta is being tested only on a small scale in South Africa, and more invitations will be sent out at some vague point in the future.
The statement sent to IGN Africa from EA:
“EA, Respawn and Microsoft are currently testing Titanfall on a small scale in South Africa. Once we are confident the user experience meets our expectations, we will widen the invitation to our community and fans to join the Titanfall beta.”
Titanfall launches in March – 13 March for Xbox One and PC, and 28 March for Xbox 360 – so time is running out for South Africans to participate in the beta and find out if latency will be a problem.
