Respawn on Titanfall for PlayStation: “It’s definitely not out of the question”
In a statement to EuroGamer, Respawn has said that Titanfall could come to the PlayStation platforms, but EA has a business relationship with Microsoft that lead them to making this game a Xbox console game.
EuroGamer asked Respawn could Titanfall ever come to PlayStation, and they responded:
“It’s definitely not out of the question,” Emslie replied. “We have a huge appreciation for the fans. Coming out and showing it to everybody, we’re super nervous and wanted to make sure everybody loved it. We love all our fans, whatever console they support.”
Speaking on the Xbox platform decision, Emslie said,
“We’re making a multiplayer-focused game so you want to be online,” Emslie added. “It’s plain and simple. We’re really in love with the Xbox One. Obviously it’s more power on a console, and we’re going to take full advantage of it.”
So what’s really stopping a PlayStation platform (aside from developer concerns of to many platforms?) It’s EA:
“Obviously a business relationship between Electronic Arts, Respawn and Microsoft led to this,” EA Games Label boss Patrick Söderlund – the executive directly responsible for managing Titanfall – told Eurogamer. “There are always reasons for that, but we can’t go into them. We haven’t communicated anything on that, and I can’t comment on that right now,” Söderlund replied, before adding: “We’re proud to be exclusive to Xbox.”
