Recently, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen has stated that Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall will be a life-time exclusive to the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Despite Respawn’s Vince Zampella saying this wouldn’t be for all the games in the series, many detractors have expressed their anger by opting to buy the PC version instead of either Xbox version, presumably to “stick it” to Microsoft.
However, a confirmed Xbox One dev on Reddit pointed out the fallacy in this logic. “All the people saying they will just buy it for the PC are forgetting who makes the OS on the PC they have to play this game on. Time to buy more stock.”
Granted, not everyone uses Windows on PC – just the majority of the world, really – but Respawn won’t be releasing a Linux or Mac version of Titanfall any time soon. Do you think the dev’s comments are just rubbing it in consumers’ faces or a worthy response to hackneyed, anti-Microsoft strategies? Let us know in the comments below.
Titanfall is scheduled to release on March 11th 2014 in North America and March 14th 2014 in Europe.
