Titanfall 2 To All Consoles (Probably)
 
Article talks about Titanfall being only a one year exclusive deal and that Titanfall 2 will more then likely be available on PS4. It's funny how the first one isn't even out yet and they are already starting on the other. That just tells me that companies restrict the content of games to siphon as much money as they can. Instead of paying for a content rich game, they put just enough content in there to sell and then pump out the rest of the content as a whole new game.

According to industry leaker and NeoGAF forumgoer Pete Dodd, Respawn Entertainment and EA simply thought the domination of the Xbox One was a foregone conclusion.

“The vast majority of the industry thought that Microsoft was going to dominate this gen,” wrote Dodd, but as the sales figures have shown, that hasn’t been the case in the early goings. Dodd wrote more extensively about the matter on his website: “The 360 was already widely popular in North America and Western Europe which is also where the FPS genre is the most successful. Signing a year exclusivity deal was a no brainer at the time.”


Although the first Titanfall will almost certainly never see release outside of Microsoft’s platforms, Dodd is confident that Titanfall 2 will find its way to the PlayStation 4.

Titanfall is getting all kinds of hype. I just got an X1 and have no games. I think I may wait until this game comes out to buy my first game.

I don't get why third party companies do this. There is nothing to gain from this. Why limit yourself to one console, and take a chance when you can release for every console and increase your profits.

I think that's what they are saying about Respawn Entertainment and what they are probably thinking right now. That's why they are almost positive the 2nd release will be on all consoles. Just think PS4 has sold over 5 million units and probably will be over 7 million after this weekend and they lost all that revenue. I would be kicking myself in the nuts right now and thats impossible.

I would say your point applies more to paid content available on release day. You're pretty much saying they already have Titanfall 2 ready to go because it could have just been released as a part of Titanfall, which I doubt is really the case. I'm sure that as phases of the game are completed or near completion they want to give their employees something to do, like maybe get cracking on the sequel.

Respawn came out and said they wanted it to be on one console, so that they didn't have to worry about multiple platforms. If it sells really well which I think it will MS might break down, and pay to keep it an exclusive. I don't really see the need now tho, with Halo, and Gears their shooters.

Speaking of games altogether, are any of y'all bored right now? There's nothing out right now. I'm picking up Thief for the PS4, and Titanfall ( ONE ). I've been trying to buy games for both consoles so they don't fill up so fast. The games size for downloading is crazy.

I am sure Microsoft forked out a good amount of cash upfront to get the exclusive.
