    Translation: "Canceled midnight of Titanfall.
    You can pick up your copy or buy the Titanfall Edition console on Tuesday 11th from 10am. Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience."

    "Very little amount of preorders, and several Gamestops have also canceled"

    The link to your source leads to an unavailable page. Also, your news seems to indicate that the midnight release has been cancelled in Puerto Rico. Try to be more specific with your topic title next time. Also, I'm not sure if this news is relevant enough to belong in this section...

    These midnight launch cancellations are only happening at locations where, essentially, the Xbox One isn't selling, so the needed number of pre-orders isn't met to validate a midnight launch for Titanfall. For anybody wondering, prior to the launch, it's best to make sure your local store is actually selling it, though, I'm sure this advice isn't too relevant for most of you. Regardless, it's good to note that the Xbox One is kind of flailing right now compared to the PS4, so expect some retailer bias as well.

    Thats why I added the Screenshot. And not only here(We are part of US BUT PLEASE not another debate of PR & US I'm sick of them) I have read that in some places in the States there have been cancellations too.

    So more that likely it's international based cause I haven't seen or heard anything like that over here......I know 3 local GS are having midnight events and I would also think this would pertain to Japan as the XBone isn't very poopular over there either. .....

    The part of the US Where I live there are plenty of retailers that are open 24 hours, they never close. Who needs gamestop to stay open late for a midnight release?
