    The Next-Gen Xbox Is Getting a Hell of an Exclusive[Respawn Entertainment]

    http://kotaku.com/the-next-gen-xbox-...e-so-484785241
    The long-awaited first game from Respawn Entertainment—the studio helmed by the creators of Call of Duty—will be exclusive to the next-gen Xbox, according to two unrelated sources familiar with the game. One of our sources indicates that there will also be an Xbox 360 version, but no versions for rival PlayStation and Nintendo consoles.
    The new game from Respawn is a futuristic multiplayer-centric online shooter, one of our sources says. The source describes the game as a battle of Davids and Goliaths. The Davids are heavily-armed foot soldiers. The Goliaths are the giant exosekeltons—Titans—that these soldiers can pilot. These Titans are big mech-style walkers that move with an agility not seen in games like Mechwarrior or Steel Battalions.

    To keep the action balanced, game maps limit the number of Titans that can be used in a skirmish. Weapon loadouts for the foot soldiers are designed to ensure that the characters on foot can take out the Titans if need be. The source who described the game does not work at Respawn, but their description tracks with the long-reported desire by the former
    Infinity Ward team to make a sci-fi shooter.
    While the details of the game came to us from one source—a source who is in a good position to know what the deal is with Respawn's game—their assertion that the game is destined only for Microsoft console hardware was consistent with information another source gave us earlier this month. That other source had also told us that Respawn's game would only be for the Xbox brand. It is possible that the game could be a timed exclusive, but neither source indicated that was the case.

    Two sources have told us that this new game is, in fact, always-online.
    While we can safely assume that we'll all see Respawn's game at E3, the source that shared the most specifics of the game with us said we shouldn't expect to play the game until some time next year. They expect it to be a full-sized, boxed retail game.

    Well this solidifies the Ea/NS partnership and is a given that EA will be at the next xbox unveiling. Hopefully they will show gameplay at the unveiling.

    Well of course I am excited to find out more about this new IP. I will reserve my excitement until I see gameplay videos.

    Pretty big if true. Will probably be this gen's Halo/Gears. Also, for shame EA

    The game itself sounds like they played Killzone 3 on the mech levels and liked it enough to do it themselves

    I stopped here: futuristic multiplayer-centric

    Good for those that like games like these though. And good lineage too.

    I hate futuristic games, and I hate it more when it's a first person shooter! It also looks to be online only ($#@! better cost 30 dollars). Will it be f2p?

    I like futuristic shooters only when they're done right. Mass Effect = No. Halo = Yes. But we need something new.

    lol just my preference, the game might be AAA game of the century, but if it's a futuristic shooter I'm not playing. An action adventure title set in the future? Now that I can deal with. But laser guns and cloaks to go invisible? Nah

    Seriously, EA doing a single platform exclusive triple A next gen release? I don't see it, especially in a world where the hardware is looking to be a similar as the next gen is starting to look. And where the install base will be small enough already without cutting off half the market. EA is one of the most platform agnostic publishers out there (they want titles on everything they can manage), and they've reported for years that PS versions do better sales for them. I suppose if MS wants to throw money at a studio that has yet to make a game, for a brand new untested IP they probably won't end up owning, they could afford it but I doubt it. I don't see third party exclusives being much of a selling feature next gen, it won't be like MS has a 1 year lead in sales, or a significantly easier platform to develop for.

    The only way I see this happening is if it is 360 exclusive not a next gen game at all. And even then it wouldn't be the kind of thing EA normally does, and its too late in the cycle for it to really matter.

    I think this might be EA's way of making up for the Bioware/Mass Effect thing. Good on MS for securing a game. They've been needing some fresh IP, if you don't mind me saying.

    I'll wait until I see it to cast a proper judgement but while I like futuristic shooters I don't particularly enjoy mech suit bits in games.
    I can read your thoughts.

    It all remains to be seen though. Could very well just be timed exclusive or a first game deal.

    Kind of sucks its a shooter but I can't expect too much. I just wanna see the reveaaallllll

    Exclusive, timed exclusive or whatever.... I'm just eager to see what kind of game these hit makers produce away from Activision.

    Well Mass Effect is more considered an RPG (albeit in a bit of a stretch). Halo is THE futurist shooter.

    Other than the lackluster graphics, Dust 514 is an example of a solid futuristic shooter.

    It is an MMO but I don't recall seeing any MMO numbers in my last play. Felt like I was in a map with like 10 people.

    To be fair Dust 514 did get a graphical upgrade. http://themittani.com/news/fanfest-dust-514-keynote

    I don't hate this game nor do I hate Destiny.

    I just probably wouldn't play them unless they had a SP campaign and that's about it. I'm only really tied to Uncharted and Battlefield as far as multiplayers go.

    But yeah; I don't really get your comment.
