"We'll see where the future leads us." [OXM]
Unless Titanfall somehow shocks the world and completely bombs or the world destroys itself ala Fallout, Titanfall 2 is a definite and it will be out on PS4. Then it'll be interesting to see the naysayers lapping it up.
I agree that Titanfall seems very likely, but whether or not it'll be on PS4 is harder to judge. Obviously it'd allow Respawn to target a much larger market, but I'm also willing to bet that Microsoft will make some big offers to keep it exclusive.
It's Mass Effect all over again, basically. I'd like to see some more adventurous kinds of Titan. Dog Titans, for instance. Attack Dog Titans. Oh dear, I think I can see where this is going...
@Septic you sound so convinced, let me ask you a few questions 1. If you are a developer and a certain fanbase is hoping for your downfall, doing all they can to run down your first major project how would you feel? 2. Would you rather be paid lets say $250 million now (MSFT exclusive money and xbox sales), or potentially make $300 million (total sales only) later. Also EA is publishing the first title meaning they have to pay EA, but if they take MSFT's exclusive deal their slice of the pie gets larger, as MSFT would be the publisher. Respawn is always on twitter and probably look at some gaming sites, I'm sure they have seen the backlash from a certain fanbase. I wouldn't say its an absolute that it goes to ps4. Say what you want about MSFt, but they market their product, hell look at what they have already done with Titanfall. I would say Titanfall going multiplat is more in the range of 50-50, especially considering Respawn went from working in a busted down building to getting a fat check from MSFT. We shall see, but I'll be enjoying Titanfall 1 until that day comes.
I wouldn't say "definite" when it comes to PS4. Microsoft is doing system updates and special preparations just for this game. Things that cost money. Money that Microsoft has. What's to stop them from giving Respawn a blank check?
I'm a PlayStation fan but I think TitanFall looks like hella fun. Will I be a naysayer when I say it's awesome when it comes to the PS4?
You're not one now, why would you be a naysayer then?
@Septic - Because it seems like you're grouping all PS4 fans together, saying they're all naysayers. Not good to generalize a fanbase =)
How did I group all PS4 gamers up?
If the game is as big as it appears then I agree Titanfall 2 is a 100% definite. But part 2 coming to Ps4...that's up in the air. Even though there has been a lot of articles confirming that the sequel is fair game I think it depends on sales of this and how many actual X1 it moves. If this game actually moves a good number of X1's then you can bet that MS will get the blank check out and hand it to EA to keep the game an exclusive.
It's gonna have to move a helluva lot of XB1s. Already, EA is likely not liking the sales numbers, and wishing they hadn't made the first game exclusive. It'll have to be an absurd number for the second game to be exclusive, and that number would likely be so high as to prevent MS from actually generating any profit off the title's exclusivity. Or, at the least, not enough to justify having bought said exclusive status. Cuz at the current rate, if Titanfall 2 drops(according to that "shooter rotation" of EA's) in about two years, we could be looking at a 10 million or more lead for the PS4. For EA to want to keep it on Xbox, they'd need a crazy high attach rate. Last time I paid attention, I think Destiny had higher preorders than Titanfall. Obviously, that doesn't mean everything, but it CAN be taken as something of an interest barometer. I'm certain EA would prefer to double up on their sales by releasing the game on PlayStation consoles. And I'm sure Respawn will be paying more attention this time around, and not be caught unawares.
"EA is likely not liking the sales numbers, and wishing they hadn't made the first game exclusive." I doubt this, and I don't like this all of a sudden concern for 3rd part titles being exclusive. All of a sudden Titanfall is the only game that a third party company is supposedly regretting for putting on a console without the sales lead. 1. Why wasn't this same logic applied to MGS4 since 360 had a huge lead over the PS3 at the time. 2. The rumor is MS will drop the price of the X1, just as the PS3 did. And when that happened the PS3 started to gain and catch up to the 360 sales over good period of time. 3. People act like the X1 is a huge disappointment in terms of sales which it isn't. So how can EA be disappointed. It's strange that everyone is laughing at EA for not putting this particular game on PS4. It just makes it all the more certain how popular and highly wanted this game truly is.
Nope this naysayer still wouldn't touch it with a stick. This game needs to be really, really, really, really good for it to survive. It's launching in March, the next CoD will be announced around that time, so it'll compete against CoD hype. Then you have the issue that apparently few people even knows it exists on 360, so Microsofts plan to push consoles may falter the game itself. Whether this game succeeds or not, I doubt people really care. If it succeeds it only proves that people love the CoD formula and only bitch for the sake of bitching.
Already preordered Titanfall 3
i still think you'll see tf1 on the ps4, just way down the line. i'm thinking the same will happen for tf2. ms will lock it up in the beginning, then it will release later on ps4. who knows though. if the rumors of ms investors complaining about xbox losses are true, maybe the giant check writing for exclusivity will drop off. maybe not. it'll be interesting, for sure.
As long as TitanFall 2 comes out for PC as well then I dont give a rat's ass what peasant console it stumbles into next.
What the heck game is not even out yet but the feed backs from people sure are not negative
my hype for this game peaked at e3 and has been slowly decreasing since.
Mine too, the game is not the revolution in MP FPS like people are saying, but more of an evolution of it. People die in three bullets, Titans are the new "kill streaks" but now you get one no matter what each game, etc. The mobility and jet packs are definitely the most interesting thing to me, and more games need to incorporate that style of movement.
dont get me wrong, the game looks fun, but honestly its basically call of duty: mech wars.
@jimjam, play the game first, apologize later, you've been saying "oh it's just cod with mechs" ALL DAY, we get it, you haven't played the game, don't know how it feels and you're basing your biased opinion on youtube videos, let it go.
@CrossingEden your bubbles tell the whole story buddy.
Whether they want to or not, you are going to see Titanfall 2, Titanfall 3, Titanfall 4: Postmodern Warfare, Titanfall Postmodern Warfare 2...etc. EA is definitely betting on this becoming the next big cash cow and boy are they going to milk it.
It will definitely spawn a sequel, no pun intended. But after Titanfall 1, EA has no say over what happens with the franchise.
They have already said they expect Titanfall to be a series around for a long time, they most certainly do have a say in that. You will see AT LEAST bi-annual releases if not annual releases in the coming years of this game if it sells well enough.
I'd rather them make a new IP after Titanfall. Titanfall looks good but it shouldn't be ruined with sequels. Just look at CoD: MW. The first game was really good but then it went downhill with each sequel.
It's pretty much a guarantee that a titanfall sequel will be coming out in the future and it will probably come out ps4 unless Microsoft get to repswan quickly and give them a hell of a offer but by the time titanfall 2 will be in the works ps4 will have a larger user base than xbox one so you have to consider that.
We've never seen an FPS set in Rome before
Titanfall looks like a winner to me.
I would not be surprised if titanfall ends up on ps4, especially if ps4 has a larger user base EA would not be able to ignore that especially when titanfall exclusivity was based on incorrect projections of x1 being dominant. Plus Respawn will be able to grow there development team
EA is the publisher, so.....
Yeah titanfall 2 could be in 1080p.... if it comes to the ps4 XD
Titan Fall is already in 1440p. #PCSWAG. :D
Ea is just funding and publishing the game for the first entry. If Microsoft really wanted to they could swoop in and pay more for the development of the game or out right buy the studio, they do have the money to do so anyways. Basically what EA did to Microsoft with Bioware.
By the time Titanfall 2 comes out PS4, judging by current trends, should have a massive userbase. Unless MS buy the franchise (costly, especially if it's successful), I can't see Respawn/EA ignoring that. Especially if they wan't to 'dethrone' cod, and also considering Destiny, which looks more interesting tbh and is also multiplat. Titanfall 2 on PS4? Wouldn't bet against it.
