Despite previous information, from Microsoft itself, to the contrary, players unfortunately won’t be able to pre-purchase and pre-install Titanfall on their Xbox One consoles ahead of the game’s launch on March 11.
In a released statement, Microsoft claimed the original information was untrue.
“We believe in digital distribution, and are proud to give gamers a variety of ways to purchase and experience their games,” the statement read. “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.”
The original page that stated the game could be pre-installed has since been removed by Microsoft.
