Why Titanfall is an Xbox One Exclusive


The developers from Respawn Entertainment explain why Titanfall is an Xbox One exclusive in a video from Game Informer. (Titanfall is also coming to Xbox 360 and PC.)

Click on the headline to watch the video.

Money. I don't even need to watch the video. They're being paid to exclusivize it because either it wouldn't get made without that money--the most likely reason--or they made a deal for extra promo through it.

"We are exclusive because deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerp"

That's all I heard. Also, I heard this will exclusive to Windows 8 (which means exclusive to the Microsoft Store), is that true?

It will probably require Direct X 11.2 so people have to buy Windows 8(.1) to be able to play it.

Glad I wasn't looking forward to this.

Now if someone pulled that crap with Destiny I'd be angry!

Nothing could backfire with this plan. Remember that Shadowrun game that required the (then) brand new Vista OS to play? Don't worry, you're not alone. Nobody else remembers it, either.

You know I cliked on this thinking the headline should have the story and not tease it but then the paragraph just teased the story and then reading the response to the video, it appears that even the video that is teased doesn't contain an answer. . . . So, wtf man?

Their answer was that they're a small developer and they do not have the resources to do multiplatform at this time.

I am more excited about this game running on the Source engine then I am at the actual game. I know it is said to be a "heavily modified" version of the Source engine, but what we are seeing here might also be the first (announced) Source 2 game.

...also sounds to me like due to that, they had to pick a side last year and go with it. The safer bet was to pick the Xbox team as they were the place to be previous gen, so they extrapolated that they would also be the place to be in the new gen. Guess you can't win every gamble . Still, not interested in multiplayer only titles, so couldn't care less where they released.

We need to even ask this question to an obvious paid exclusive title?

ZOMG dedicated servers! Never could have foreseen 16 years ago when I was playing Quake 2 on dedicated servers that I was experiencing the future of online gaming

Are gamers really ignorant and gullible enough to believe this bullshit? It is however hilarious how they now laud the benefits of dedicated servers whereas it was not that long ago that they used every conceivable excuse to argue why peer to peer was a superior option for Modern Warfare 2 on PC.

I doubt that. That's asking a game to fail. Seriously. I'm not making a joke. If they're going to make it Win8 only they might as well not bother.

Reminds me of the Vista + Halo 2 PC failure.
