The upcoming Titanfall 2 Open Multiplayer Tech Test will not be available to PC according to Vince Zampella, founder, and CEO of Respawn Entertainment.
In the blog post, Zampella goes into reasons why a PC version will not be available
Two big issues from a development standpoint: hardware variety & “min spec” optimization. We’re still making a lot of tweaks and changes to the renderer, the game, and effects so we haven’t run the game through the hardware compatibility lab yet to detect and handle a large variety of hardware – video cards, CPUs etc. Quite frankly, we aren’t ready to deal with that yet, we are still making the game better. We also haven’t done enough work to fully support our ‘Min Spec’ on PC yet. So, currently the PC game isn’t as easy to throw out for testing as the console is, because of the additional variables and configurations that we need to support. Also, because the single player story has some wonderful secrets that we really want to preserve for launch, we also have to worry about leaks. Our wonderfully curious PC players have proven in the past that they will dig out anything they can, and there’s a risk that they could spoil some of our single player.
The Titanfall 2 Open Multiplayer Tech Test that Respawn has planned are to ensure capacity can scale when required. As such, only one platform needs to be proven out but Respawn Entertainment is planning to run the tests on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with each platform having its own backend systems.
Titanfall 2 releases on PC via Origin, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 28th October 2016.
