Update: Titanfall representatives have confirmed that a limited number of Battlefield 4 on Xbox One players were sent an email inviting them to a limited technical test -- not a beta. As of right now Titanfall representatives have no news to share on any upcoming betas. (via Facebook)
It appears that the Titanfall Xbox One beta is quickly approaching after we received reports that EA is has begun registration for the event. Simply head over to the "Standby for Titanfall" page on the official Titanfall website. While scams related to Titanfall's beta have been prolific in recent months, it really doesn't get much more official than Origin's verified logins.
Sources first told us of the registration opening after receiving an email from EA, which was sent out to verified Battlefield 4 on Xbox One owners. That is to say that if EA hasn't verified you as an Xbox One owner then your registration might not mean much in the long run. Still, if EA and Respawn are ready registering gamers for an Xbox One beta, Xbox 360 and Windows betas can't be too far behind, right?
Check it out for yourself and maybe score a spot in an upcoming Titanfall beta test. Unless the official Titanfall website has been compromised, along with the encrypted SSL that verifies logins with Origin, this one's good to go. Titanfall will be launching on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows machines on March 11 in North America, March 13/14 in Europe.
Note: Respawn are currently not commenting on whether the above registration is official or not, but how often have Respawn and EA ever talked to each other about these sorts of things? This is a response from the official Titanfall Twitter account:

Note 2: Be careful. Just because this link goes to the official Titanfall website and requires an Origin login doesn't mean all of them do. Make sure to verify what URL you're clicking on before putting any login information out there.
