Titanfall is currently hot right now. The beta is underway, the game is generating excitement for PC and Xbox One users alike and it’s amazing the potential the game has. Its status as an exclusive has been discussed time and time again, even though Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella has stated that the first game will be on Xbox consoles.

The situation seems highly similar to Microsoft buying the publishing rights for Bioware’s Mass Effect, thus making it exclusive to the Xbox 360. Speaking on the topic, NeoGAF user and insider Pete Dodd (also known as famousmortimer) conferred with various sources on what’s stopping Microsoft from buying exclusivity again.

“Respawn. It is entirely up to them. They own the IP and as far as I understand it there is no deal in place with anyone, be it EA, MS, or any other publisher for Titanfall 2. If they want to go exclusive they can choose to. My conjecture is that signing a deal like that with Activision (with Call of Duty) would make them shy away from it now. I believe that Respawn values their independence. And now that they almost have their first hit out the door they are looking to widen the scope and sales, not contain them.”

This seems in line with Respawn wanting to work on the PlayStation 4 somewhere down the line. But will Titanfall 2 really be on both next gen consoles? We’ll need to wait and find out. Let us know your thoughts below.

    Why are people keep listening to this fool ,Pete Dodd, after Jon Shiring himself already explained why Titanfall ended up with MS and XB1. What’s up with all this amnesia when it comes to factual citable sources in regards to XB1?

    Here’s the truth if you are interested! Something sony fanboys like Pete Dodd dont like!

    “I personally talked to both Microsoft and Sony and explained that we need to find a way to have potentially hundreds-of-thousands of dedicated servers at a price point that you can’t get right now. Microsoft realized that player-hosted servers are actually holding back online gaming and that this is something that they could help solve, and ran full-speed with this idea.

    The Xbox group came back to us with a way for us to run all of these Titanfall dedicated servers and that lets us push games with more server CPU and higher bandwidth, which lets us have a bigger world, more physics, lots of AI, and potentially a lot more than that!”

    It’s all there. Written by Jon Shiring himself!

      Back to misterxtard’s blog with you, dumb demented idiot. Keep digging.

    • commando_rock_ski

      OMG! he’s right about ya’ll.

      I checked out those links and they’re legit and straight from the source, but yet you’re hating. You’re excising rule #5

      Look see…look..look…look! It’s true..SMH..you’re so pathetic. Truth is truth!

    • Mikeherp Derp

      Dat hidden stacked dGPU 128MB ESRAM derrrrrrp. I hope the misterxtard cult has a suicide pact when you realize it was all a lie.

    • commando_rock_ski

      That respawn link had nothing to do with misterx. Those are Jon Shiring words. Why are you changing the subject? Why are you wishing death and destruction on people? You sony fanboys are the worst. Too much hate boiled up inside. You get angry about everything. What happened to just enjoyng the games? Suicide pact? You’re sick and need help. You sound like an angry religious fanatic who’s willing to destroy anyone who don’t believe the same way you do. I hope people who read these threads do not take you as an example of what a gamer is. You’re sad and pathetic, probably a loner, no friends and suicidal. The last part of your statement may be a reflection of what you are capable of. Check yourself in to the nearest mental ward, before you you hurt yourself or some one. Sad. SMH -_-

    • Mikeherp Derp

      Why are you so mentally ill that you believe a raving paranoid delusional schizophrenic about stacked dGPUs, “insiders”, and 128MB ESRAM? LOL please get on meds before it’s too late. Misterxtards are laughingstocks of the internet.
