So why not the PC? According to the developers, “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.”
So does this mean that they will be releasing a PC beta later? Nope, it doesn’t sound like it either. According to Respawn, they are worried about data-mining which could reveal the single-player campaign that they have been working on, and they would rather not have players spoil it for themselves or others.
“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 company states that they believe that they will still be able to deliver a great PC experience despite of not having players beta test it, so we guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
