EA has announced that Titanfall will not be released in South Africa due to poor performance online from the beta.
EA South Africa made the announcement on their Facebook page
After conducting recent online tests for Titanfall, we found that the performance rates in South Africa were not as high as we need to guarantee a great experience, so we have decided not to release Titanfall in South Africa at this time.
We understand this is a disappointment for local fans and will keep fans posted on any future plans regarding the release of Titanfall in South Africa
There was not a local server for South African Titanfall players which could have contributed to its poor online performance. The game doesn’t have a local server for Australian and New Zealand gamers as of yet, but the game will still be released in these regions.
Sadly, this still means South African gamers have to miss out on the game entirely.
