GR: For the folks at Respawn Entertainment, the creation of Titanfall was not motivated by getting back at Activision.
Really just seems like he wanted to make this type of game since COD: MW
To me, hearing news right from the Respawn guys instead of some publishing executive seems to dispel all the corporate talk, marketing messaging, and promotional jargon, and reminds me that these guys really do want to make a game like this. There are real people who are putting their biggest efforts and all their hearts into this game that they clearly have a strong vision and love toward Titanfall. Kinda comforting to hear that, in my opinion.
Its sorta like the Kick-starter Devs talking about their games and getting updates about what has been going on...
Good forget and move on to making better games as if they live in regret all that energy would be wasted on trying to create a cod killer and we all know how those games ended up
why do i feel that future cod will be better? :)
If they really wanted revenge they would come out on all platforms and release on November date but thats not the case so no...
I don't like what Activision has brought to the gaming industry, they are kind of ruining things for the gamers by spoiling kids with their COD IP and strategies used behind that game. But obviously they are one step ahead in term of marketing and taking advantage of those who feel sleep in the industry. First they took away most of the main guys from MOH and create a better IP COD and once successful they exploited and will exploilt it until it dies just like Tony Hawk popularity died on them. And now they took away from M$ their only and best very successful exclusive studio Bungie and made a 10 year lease with them to create better game than Halo.. Destiny! Im glad Killzone does not sale over 5millions plus on each game they make, I bet Activision will try to buy them or take away their talent to open up a new studio and make a better game if they did. I bet their eye is on Naughty Dog and Naughty Dogs been friend with Respanw devs is been used as a advantage.. lucky us the gamers Sony does not fall sleep and they give freedom and love to naughty dog. My point is that they cant revenge Activision because Activision is 10 steps ahead and see the preorders Titanfall is is clearly that is failing even after all the hype and marketing behind it.
you do realize activision literally own none of the ip's you mentioned? right?
They do own the COD ip and im pretty sure they own Destiny ip or at least for about 10 year's which is enough years for a IP to create lots of money and die.
One day, I really hope to read an insider book about the spit between Activision and Infinity Wards founders.
I think they're just being polite, and it is quite possible that their settlement had a "non-disparagement" clause in it. However, they might be that much better people than Kotick and Co. I run a business and I know I'd make it my goal to financially bury someone who put me through the kind of crap Activision put them through. But that's just me.
Vince deserved everything actavision done to him!.
