One game that won’t be available as an Xbox One launch title, but is one of the most anticipated is Titanfall. The shooter from the creators of Call of Duty is looking fantastic, but unfortunately remains an exclusive on Microsoft platforms for now.
We say for now, as there are some amazing rumors this week that are starting to emerge, suggesting that Titanfall could actually end up as a timed-exclusive, rather than an Xbox console exclusive permanently.
Titanfall is being published by EA remember, whilst being developed by Respawn Entertainment – a company which has partnered with EA to bring Titanfall to gamers as the first game in the company’s portfolio. Could we actually see the game appear on the PS4 though in the distant future?
This possibility would have looked a million years away a few months ago, but now it appears that there may be some solid light at the end of the tunnel. Just listen to this quote from Microsoft’s Major Nelson, when asked on Reddit by a user if Titanfall was a timed-exclusive and would be heading to PS4 later on:
“As far as being an exclusive that’s really a question for Titanfall – I’m not worried about it though.”
If Titanfall was an Xbox console exclusive, surely he would want to boast this fact and just end the speculation there and then. However, Major Nelson doesn’t do this, and even concedes that he wouldn’t be ‘worried’ if the game did turn up on PS4 at a later date.
Is this evidence that Titanfall is in fact a timed-exclusive, which Microsoft has paid for to keep it away from the PS3 and PS4 for a specific period of time? Give us your thoughts on this below.
