Seems this is pretty big news as most expected a port to Playstation at some point.

Not sure if this also covers Titan fall 2?

CBOAT wrong again?

Huge news, imagine if COD 4 was only released on xbox360. Xbox would have had a huge pull for the casual gamer.

If they can replicate COD 4's success then a lot of Playstation users especially ones that left xbox would be asking if it was really worth it.

It was leaked by an 'insider' that it would be on ps4 later.

It was? Most of the rumours seem to have been sparked from the dev/publishers themselves!

Respawn's Joel Emslie in June:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...nd-ea-weigh-in

(funny sidenote - in the above he cites the -as it then was- 'always online' nature of the XB1 as a reason for exclusivity)

EA's Frank Gibeau is 'misinterpreted' in August:

Comprehension. It's useful.

It's NOT exclusive to Xbox One.

It's coming out on Xbox 360 and PC too.

Yeah the rumours had more weight since Respawn and EA were pretty coy on it only staying on Microsoft platforms and PC.

No wonder Sony has been pushing Destiny. Especially in their advertisements 'From the makers of Halo' and their marketing/DLC deal.

Waiting for an extra zero on a cheque from MS

I suspect more money would have changed since the original timed exclusive deal - making the timed into a permanent exclusive. It's the only way for MS to try and get people to buy their flailing system.

Makes no mention of Titanfall 2, which I suspect would see the light of day if preorder sales ratios of both consoles reflect post release numbers.

Remember when Mass Effect was never coming the PS3

And if it becomes the new COD, it is certainly coming in some form. This is EA after all.

EA are only the publishers, but yeah - I suspect this will be an IP that comes out on PS4 in some guise eventually.

I think so too. It could be a similar situation to Mass Effect and Bioshock coming to PlayStation after the first game being exclusive to Microsoft platforms.

Titanfall will do very well on the 360 and Destiny on 360 and PS3 because of their huge install base.

Founder of Respawn Vince Zampella clearly says it was out of their control and it was EA's decision.

Vince Zampella ‏@VinceZampella 8m
Always MS exclusive at launch, great partner and focus is good for a startup. EA made a deal for the rest, we only found out recently =(

AzuragarciaA ‏@AdanGarciaG 7m
@VinceZampella so you won't make any games for the ps4 ?? :

@AdanGarciaG Of course we will, just not the first Titanfall.
Allan ‏@Allanvrs1980 6m
@VinceZampella is it an MS exclusive franchise or just this one game ?

Vince Zampella ‏@VinceZampella 4m
@Allanvrs1980 First game.
Looks like a new deal, and it's only the first game and people can diminish the CBOAT leak if this was recent (Respawn just found out). He doesn't seem happy with the news.

I don't know if I'm misinterpreting the tweet but the launch game part and 'EA made a deal for the rest' means that it was a timed exclusive and EA made a deal for a lifelong Titanfall exclusive? and stoping the original coming to the PS4 like Mass Effect.

I think this might be the first time a dev/founder has been annoyed that his game is an exclusive hence the sad face. Welcome to EA Partners!

Being forced into decisions like that was the reason the guys who founded Respawn left Infinity Ward + Activision.

Yeah he gets ****ed by Activision and now the same for EA. Can't believe he's saying this stuff publicly. Zampella seems pissed off anyway.

You know the story behind that though right, very lucky to get that game since it was part-funded by MS (like Titanfall). It was only due to a clause in the contract that allowed them to release under EA due to Bioware founders retiring. I wouldn't bank on a similar thing happening here, but of course it's possible, anything is really.

That said, Respawn did say previously when asked if Titanfall would come to PS4 "it's definitely not out of the question" now it's certain that won't happen, they've said the same thing now in regards to a sequel but likewise if it sells MS consoles and goes on to become a hit then I would more likely expect this to become next-gens Gears of War.

Forced? Vince said himself at E3 they partnered with Microsoft because they had the tools and infrastructure they required, he appeared grateful that a big studio like that were helping them get them off the ground.

Forced is a little strong but it seems the deal was behind Zampella/Respawn's back. Hence the, "EA made a deal for the rest, we only found out recently". Vince's tweets suggests that the timed exclusive was the original plan.

Looks like they were told a few days ago by his tweets.

@DoW_Pitbull 25 Oct
@Respawn @VinceZampella we are waiting for the PS4 version

@VinceZampella 25 Oct
@DoW_Pitbull @Respawn I know you are :/
It's a simple business decision by EA.

Well he is hardly going to say "we took EA's bag of cash, problem?"

Of course it's a business decision. All that suggest is they don't hold rights to the IP.

That as well. Truth is none of us know what's gong on behind the scenes.
