“Vince Zampella seemed visibly annoyed when EA sold the exclusivity to Microsoft.”
The hype is heating up with Titanfall, with Respawn Entertainment announcing the beta for February 14th on the Xbox One and PC. Though the game will be arriving for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 along with PC, Respawn has clarified that future game will be multiplatform. But what of the current game?
NeoGAF user and insider famousmortimer has clarified that currently, Titanfall‘s Xbox exclusivity is for one game. “The deal is one game only. I assume this talk by EA is part of their pitch to Respawn. Vince Zampella seemed visibly annoyed when EA sold the exclusivity to Microsoft. The Adam Boyes of Ubisoft and 2K should schmoozing the shit out of them right about now.
“That said, if they can get on the same page with EA I think they would rather not jump ship and have to meet hundreds of new people and figure out how they work. Familiarity is big.”
How is working proceeding on the Xbox 360 port, developed by Bluepoint Games? Famousmortimer says, “I hear it’s very good.”
As for details on the next Call of Duty game, he says that, “Sledgehammer’s game will be a jump up graphically on current gen/pc. It will be influenced by Titanfall. Blops 3 will basically be Titanfall. Titanfall is influencing game design and it isn’t even out yet.”
Titanfall is slated to release on March 11th in North America and March 14th in Europe for Xbox One and PC, with the Xbox 360 version releasing on March 25th in NA and March 28th in Europe.
