EA has confirmed that they have canceled the launch of Titanfall in South Africa due to poor network performance in that region. EA official Facebook page posted the following statement:

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

This is due to the fact that Microsoft does not have their Azure servers available in South Africa.
