Titanfall 2: No Longer an XBox Exclusive?
Titanfall 2 could see what life is like beyond the green and black world of XBox if reports coming out of today’s 2015 Technology, Internet & Media Conference are to believed. Blake Jorgensen, the CFO over at Electronic Arts, discussed the hotly anticipated sequel to Titanfall and teased as the possibility that PlayStation 4 fans could also join in to the mechanical mayhem in Titanfall 2. So just how juicy and how specific were the details that EA revealed at the Technology, Internet & Media Conference? (That name just rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it?) Jorgensen left little room for speculation when he said, “Last year it was on the Xbox only; in the future, we haven’t yet announced, but we’ll probably have another Titanfall game. It will probably be a bigger footprint than just a single platform. I think that’s a huge positive for us.”
While the game has yet to be officially announced, Blake Jorgensen’s comments are damning evidence that EA is pretty sure that they are going to publish Respawn Entertainment’s follow up to Titanfall. EA’s discussion of the sales figures for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 only added more fuel to the fire as speculation points to PlayStation 4 getting a Titanfall 2 release. Jorgensen didn’t just dish about super specific details on unannounced titles either. He also talked about EA’s plan for FPS titles and what a tentative release schedule looks like so far. EA will stick to their guns (ahem) and plan on releasing at least one FPS every year. According to Jorgensen, 2015 will see two new FPS from EA’s stable and they are Star Wars: Battlefront and Battlefield Hardline while 2016 will likely see Battlefield 5. Despite the fact that Jorgensen was in a very chatty mood, he did not give any specifics on a release date for Titanfall 2. What do you guys think about console exclusive game titles? Do you think they actually help or hurt gamers, consoles and titles alike?
