One of the biggest worries over in the Xbox (fanboy) camp is that Respawn Studios' Titanfall, their mech-vs-man online FPS title, may not be an Xbox One exclusive. Well, Larry “Major 'Flip Switcher' Nelson” Hryb has chimed in on the matter after being asked about it, and you'll be interested to read what he had to say.
Gaming Bolt spotted a response from Major Nelson on the official Xbox One reddit thread where the Major posted a video of the Xbox One and someone asked about the exclusivity of Titanfall. The Major had this to say about the situation...
Well that sounds reassuring.
Ever since the reveal at this year's E3 during the Xbox One conference, a lot of gamers wondered whether Titanfall would maintain exclusivity to the Xbox brand (and PC) or whether or not the game would make the leap over to the Sony camp on the PS4 (or heck, if it's on the Xbox 360 and if Nintendo and EA get their relationship repaired we might even see it on the Wii U, especially since it has more 1080p 60fps games than the competition.)
One of the reasons there's a lot of hoopla surrounding Titanfall is because it's designed by the makers of the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. After Project Icebreaker the original heads at Infinity Ward left to form Respawn Entertainment and have their first title funded under the Electronic Arts publishing label.
Many gamers, enthusiast and developers alike feel as if Titanfall could be the Call of Duty killer that so many other studios have tried creating over the years. And the one platform who controls a Call of Duty killer is the one platform that will control them all.
However, if Titanfall is not exclusive to the Xbox (and PC) brand then all hope for an early competitive edge on Microsoft's part is completely and entirely lost by 100%.
Things really kicked it into high-gear when it was also found out that Titanfall wasn't Windows 8 exclusive and that Windows 7/Vista gamers could rejoice. If the game wasn't exclusive to Windows 8 and wasn't exclusive to Xbox consoles, it begged gamers to question if perhaps Titanfall wasn't exclusive to Microsoft at all?
We'll eventually find out whether EA has a multiplatform agenda on their mind come 2014, and given their penchant for greed I tend to doubt they would pass up the massive PS4 install base for loyalty. Investors don't care about loyalty, they would pimp out their own mother for a few dollar, dollar bills.
The only thing we know for sure is that the Titanfall beta key invite is fake.
