    'Titanfall' developer didn't know game would be Xbox One exclusive forever

    So apparently people who were anticipating this game for PS4 weren't far fetched at all, the only reason it will be a permanent exclusive to Xbox is because of EA who made the deal with Microsoft and the people at Respawn Studios the ones that actually made the game had no idea it would be a permanent exclusive until recently and don't seem to be happy about it, I guess they were indeed going to bring it to PS4 at some point.

    Respawn Games, the developer of "Titanfall" comprised of former "Call of Duty" staffers, says it didn't know the Xbox One game would forever be an exclusive to the Microsoft console, also implying future games in the series will be multiplatform.

    Vince Zampella, a co-founder of the developer, took to his Twitter account to reveal that the studio initially thought the game was merely going to be a timed exclusive. Instead, he said, the game's publisher made a deal with Microsoft without Respawn's knowledge.

    Always MS exclusive at launch, great partner and focus is good for a startup. EA made a deal for the rest, we only found out recently =(
    5:04 PM - 29 Oct 2013


    When asked by a fan if future games from the studio would come to Sony's PlayStation 4 console, Zampella seemed to imply that future installments of the game would likely be released on multiple platforms. Currently, "Titanfall" is scheduled for release on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

    @VinceZampella so you won't make any games for the ps4 ??

    Vince Zampella @VinceZampella

    @AdanGarciaG Of course we will, just not the first Titanfall.
    5:07 PM - 29 Oct 2013



    The exact nature of exclusivity for the game had been the subject of much debate until recently, when EA announced it would only come to Microsoft's consoles and PCs. Microsoft is well known for agreeing to exclusivity arrangements for third-party games, with some – such as the Gears of War franchise – remaining exclusive, while others – such as the Mass Effect franchise – later being released on multiple platforms.

    So far, many of the announced Xbox One exclusives – including "Titanfall," "Dead Rising 3," "Ryse: Son of Rome," "Quantum Break" and "Sunset Overdrive" – come from third-party developers. Microsoft has several well-known titles in development itself – such as the next Halo game, "Fable Legends," "Kinect Sports Rivals," "Killer Instinct" and "Forza Motorsports 5" – though many may not be released until well after the Xbox One launches.

    LOL, classy EA. I bet Zampella feels like a ping pong ball at this point.

    I'm totally fine with this. Let them make the first one on XBO and work out the kinks
    so when Titanfall 2 is released it will be so much better than the first.
    I can wait for a year or two for the next one. Imagine the quality of games in 2 years
    TF2 is going to be epic! Cause the first one looks like an amazing first start.

    Pretty cool of Zampella to be so honest about this. It's clear he wants Titanfall to be multi-platform, so we'll have to see how the publishing will be handled for TitanFall 2.

    damn this game is 60 bucks. that is a lot of money for a on-line only game. I would hope it would get an insane amount of DLC for free or they got an insane amount of content already on the disc.

    At least I think it's an online only type game.

    Something doesn't seem right about this. How can the dev studio not know until now or whatever that the game was never gonig to go to PS4?

    That just doesn't seem reasonable.

    It's online-only, but there's still a story involved from what I understand.

    Because it WAS going to PS4, but EA made a new deal. And EA holds the publishing rights.

    Well...chances are....the game isn't going to be anything special. Just looks like another COD with a few tweaks/mechs.

    Planetside 2 $#@!s on whatever this game has shown anyway.

    It's also online only, but its more justifiable in being free to play.
    It looks better, has more going on with 2000+ players, it has tons of vehicles and on top of that has mech-suits too, though they are more like mini-mech suits.

    I kinda wanted to try this.. I wanted to try a mecha. Guess I'll just hook up with some Zone of the Enders until they release it for PC then.

    It sounds like confirmation for Titanfall 2 being on the ps4.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Titanfall:*enter subtitle* found its way on the PS4 just like Ninja Gaiden Sigma/Sigma 2.

    well truth be told I don't care about the game any. it looks neat and all but it's rare for me to play on-line. I simply can't keep up with the people who play on-line all the time I just jump on-line and get killed and have no idea WTF happened. Only on-line game I really got into the last 2 years was kill zone 3 now that I could do really good on-line.

    games like COD man all I do is get killed on-line this crap moves too fast for me. Still $60 for an on-line only game that will also have pay DLC that is just crazy.

    If they want it to go multi, they should have published the game themselves. It's kinda what happens when you depend on others to do $#@! for you.

    Alright lets stay on the topic of EA's tyranny. Y'all can make a PS2 vs TF thread in the versus section if you so desire!

    I've played PS on PC and while it's sorta "too big"....I'd still rather play that than Titanfall. Especially considering it's F2P and it's a huge battlefield.

    This. And we all foolishly believed what EA said about not teaming up with Microsoft, I mean first MS gets BF4 DLC before everyone else, MS gets a free copy of FIFA 14 in Europe, now this? Sure EA isn't biased at all lol.

    To be honest I couldn't care less if this game comes or not to the PS4 because is not one bit appealing to me, but since some of you guys do care about this well this gives you hope for a Titanfall 2 on PS4.

    I'm pretty sure MS paid a ton of money for that to be exclusive. I wonder how big a chunk they took out of that supposed $1 billion? yikes


    Because that was respawns first game, MS would have had to pay to recoup the cost of that space, the equipment they used, the exclusivity license on that game, plus the profit they get off of it. That is a lot of money and I wouldn't doubt if they forked over at least $100 million and that is at the very least.

    If that new CEO of EA (Andrew Wilson) took less then that, that guy would be a moron.

    No wonder that smug $#@! major Nelson wasn't "worried" about it. He knew ms was dropping off truck loads of money at ea as he was speaking.

    I don't know, If I were MS or if I were the shareholders right now, I would be pissed if this doesn't turn out to be great after dumping a ton of money like this. The way that MS is going and how the shareholders are going the other way. nothing good is going to come from throwing down a bunch of money more mediocre results in he console war.

    Wow EA pretty sneaky and underhanded to make that type of deal behind the backs of the publishers- I have no problem with microsoft getting exclusives- but that's a dirty way to go about it..... I can't really blame MS though. EA offered them the golden egg- how could they refuse?

    As a matter of principle, I've boycotted all things EA. Whether this game was multi platform or not, I refuse to put my own money into their thieving pockets. They're really into the business of screwing people. That is just me, though.
