Report: EA secures rights to Titanfall 2

Electronic Arts has secured sequel rights for Respawn Entertainment's multiplayer shooter Titanfall, a reputable source has informed GameSpot.

The option to land Titanfall 2 was based on the performance of the original, our source said. Official sales data is not available, but from what we're hearing, Titanfall has performed well and even helped boost Xbox One sales. We already know that's true in the UK.

We've reached out to Electronic Arts for comment, but have not heard back at press time. (PC, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Another perfect example of the double standards here at N4G. Trash the game because it's not on your system and then get all excited when the possibility of that same game or a sequel showing up on your system raises its head. Sort of reminds me of Gollum talking to himself.

@ hankmoody The game had many major flaws but had alot of potential. Hopefully respawn will take the criticism on board and make an excellent sequel.

I threw up in my mouth a little bit when I read the title.

Edit: I was actually hoping that the game would sell better. it would have meant that Respawn would have earned enough money to go at it alone and truly be independent. This makes me sad :( I wonder how much of Respawn's work EA was able to siphon and pocket?

Well Infamous he says he doesn't trash other systems but he spends countless posts, and I checked, trashing Sony supporters that are no more vehement in their support of Sony products than he is of MS products.

There's the real Gollum of which he spoke. Pot, meet kettle.

The fact he says he bought a PS3 means nothing in light of his numerous comments.

@Eonjay - Respawn is a developer. They would have had to partner with someone for the publishing of the game regardless (in this case EA).

No studios outside of a first party self publish their titles.
SilentNegotiator  +   622d ago

Where did he say that he was going to PLAY it? He just said that he is prepared to see it be on on PS4.

And besides, all you're doing is generalizing to shift your disappointment away from the likely lost exclusivity to calling out fanboys (even if you have to respond to one that isn't there..."reminds me of Gollum talking to himself" if you ask me).

corvusmd  +   622d ago
...but it won't sell on PS4. All Sony gamers think it over-rated and just "cod with mechs". :/ That would be a horrible waste of money. Plus Sony would seriously have to upgrade their network to make this TF2 possible. Not unheard of, but right now they don't have the network structure.

That being said, I can't wait for TF2, because TF is a ton of fun. It'd also be interesting to see the next game include the VR aspect (esp since the AR design MS patented a year ago seemed awesome then). Nevertheless, it's good to see that TF has lived up to the hype and is getting the praise it deserves.

@Spring Maybe not everyone that doesn't like the game is a fanboy...but when they don't like it, yet visit articles about it, and do nothing but stay negative...yeah then they are just a bitter fanboy.

So according to you the game must be good and anybody who doesn't like it is afanboy.

Maybe the game just is that good and was very overhyped. Even angry joe who only games on xbox and PC gave it a 7 and said it's way over hyped. Is he now a fanboy?
morganfell  +   622d ago

He is just in a general state of distress like many X1 supporters, XGamer comes to mind, who were sure this game was not going anywhere.

But this title hasn't driven X1 sales like they hoped.

They just delayed the Xbox version to April 8th. They stated it was to polish the game but the speculation is that they are trying to drive more sales of the X1 through the end of March. The 360 version of the game should have been in reproduction and shipping already and they are announcing a delay this late? Must be a heck of a day one patch. Two weeks really doesn't bring very much polish so it smells like sales tactics.

Also the article says it helped drive X1 sales in the UK. But in the UK, the PS4 was still sold out most of the month and the X1 was given a price break.

What happened? Not sure, but the PS4 just came back into stock a few days ago. At Amazon UK, here are the cumulative sales to date for March. See for yourself who managed to get the most consoles out the door, the console with the price break and heavily advertised exclusive or another manufacturer.

Does this mean anything? I do not know. Maybe these sales are not indicative of the standard purchasing demographic.

There is now way for polishing game just in 2 weeks BEFORE LAUNCH!!!! That's bullshit. About 3 weeks before launch game must go in production.

You realize that N4G accounts for probably 1% of the Sony community. I know plenty of Sony gamers that like this game so I guess your saying 1% is all. They got plenty of time to figure out infrastructure of the online by the time the sequel comes out.

@hankmoody You see double standards and i see Titanfall being shackled to a crippled Xbox One and x360. The FACT is the next Titanfall game will look and play better on the better console that being the PS4. But with your logic you're perfectly happy with the ugly game as long as it's on YOUR console of choice. Even from someone like me who has both consoles (bought second hand for 400 phuck the 500 price tag) i would assuredly buy the PS4 version over the X1 version to play the best version possible. If Titanfall can be it's best on one console what does it matter if it's on the PS4? You're mad about the mere possibility of it coming to the PS4 when what you should be mad at is the overpriced Xbox One hardware holding the IP on consoles back and MS buying exclusive 3rd party titles because they refuse to put meaningful resources toward proper 1st party games. I've got an Xbox One for my own reasons but anyone with any sense should want the best possible experience with any game they buy to play and even if that experience is on a competitor's console who gives a $h!t? People like you are a cancer to the gaming community fueling the console war bull$h!t for your own agenda when what you should be hoping for is for the success of the IP and keeping it as relevant as possible EVEN if it's not on your platform of choice. Stop the console warrior stuff it's negative and has no place of value to the gaming community at large.

"Seems like allot of people want to play TF that don't have the right console."

It isn't about wanting to play Titanfall. It isn't my kind of game. It isn't the game that a lot of people want. Far fewer than you imagined. Did you also dream that Titanfall would make the X1 the most purchased console? Sales numbers to day say no. Not even for the month in which the game launched.

Having Titanfall on PS4 is about a broader base for Sony = more ability for Sony to craft things which do interest others such as Morpheus.

It is about removing another advantage from the company that sought to do more harm to gamers rights in a single day than all other companies in the past combined.
k3rn3ll  +   622d ago
Pretty sure this is just the pub rights still not ip. Respawn is part of "EA Partners" program which lets them get final ip rights. They were actually one of the last to sign on for this program

Tsar4ever  +   622d ago
EA was RESPONSIBLE for TitanFall NOT coming to the ps3/PS4.

If you read Respawn earliest development road map for TF. The reason they did not use their COD-MW engine and used Valve Software's "SOURCE ENGINE" to build TF was because they wanted to make sure that TF would perform at the target spec on ALL platforms, specifically the PLAYSTATION 3, because how well the Source Engine performed with Portal 2 on PS3. But Microsoft changed that with it's money, It influenced EA, and EA made the decision to have TF on XB1 & PC only.

Now they have the rights to TF2. And they have the last word on whether or not TF2 would come to PS3/PS4. which already has me worried, MS money influence EA's decision the 1st time, MS money could influence EA's decision again.

EA doesn't own the IP, it belongs to Respawn... EA is only the publisher as part of the EA Partners Program. Similar to how Bungie owns the IP for Destiny.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   622d ago

1 year?

Respawn's not even releasing another Titan any time soon for the game let alone a half baked spin off or a full blown sequel next year.

The team is still small but growing in number rapidly.

It won't take as long as TF 1 to make but give it 2 years tops.
maniacmayhem  +   622d ago
I can see EA bringing this to another studio or in house dev just to annualize the title.

They may do the same with this title as Activision does with CoD.
trenso1  +   622d ago
2 years? If thats the case for only multiplayer game this makes it even less appealing knowing that it has such a short life span for a only multiplayer game.
nukeitall  +   622d ago
Now that EA has the IP, it can do another deal with MS again and make it exclusive again too.

That said, it likely takes longer than 2 years to do another sequel.

Even CoD with breakneck pace of release and massive funds, requires massive amount of outside help to get the annual release and two year development cycle.
k3rn3ll  +   622d ago
I highly doubt this is ip rights. Mainly because the whole reason respawn left IW is because they wanted to control their product

They can push out BF one year, then Titanfall the next.

I'm sure that respawn would have learned the lessons after Activation and not fall into the same trap again.
So they probably hold onto the ownership rights for TF until they are ready to move on.

DeadlyFire  +   621d ago
Yes they do. This is just publishing rights for the title that EA has acquired. Nothing more. EA is not likely to double down on a single platform twice. I believe its just Microsoft pushing for people to say play on Xbox first.

You know Metro and Witcher also got a first game deal to put their game on Xbox first. Now both are multiplatform with releases after that with Last Light, and Witcher 3 landing on both platforms. I expect the same with Titanfall. Next game won't come until 2016. EA has Havannah(2014), Battlefront(2015), Titanfall in 2016 could happen along with a new Battlefield. As well as other games in their line up. I am pretty sure they have seen sales numbers and have high aims for the sequel with a bigger budget.

Sell better? Well since numbers haven't been released yet how do you know how well it sold? You don't, you're trolling and hoping to spread misinformation.

@dark - well they can pay whatever they want but if by next spring ps4 has 15 million consoles in the wild, then if the game is popular

5 million attach rate X 30 bucks average for game = 150 million.

If MS spends 150 million to secure one game, that would be hilarious, terrible business model. and sony could take that same investment and make warhawk2 plus resistance 3 for the same money.... meanwhile EA will also put out another possibly better bf , and COD will likely overhaul due to poorer sales of ghosts. and this is while destiny would be pumping out DLC for a huge seller as well.
Do you really think titanfall 2 would sell enough consoles to make this worth it?

To me the more money MS throws at games like this, the more I see the FAble, forza, halo, gears, cycle repeat over and over and over. as a 360 owner, I'm done with most of those.
Kayant  +   622d ago
"Something greater than DLC, and something less than full exclusivity" - So timed exclusive release (Unlikely), exclusive platform DLC or modes.

I doubt it personally it will either be timed DLC (COD deal) or if MS wants full exclusivity they either going to have to buy respawn or the IP from them or pay a very very large amount for the sequel because PS4 will have the bigger install base adding that to PS3's install base also that is a lot of money EA wouldn't want to miss out on again.

MS could afford it but is that a smart move for the Xbox division or their budget? Will investors like that?

The question is would that be a smart decision for EA and their stockholders to make another deal with MS for exclusivity? Short answer is NO it wouldn't make any sense to commit to one console platform again especially when by that time i'm sure cross gen games will be nothing but a memory. So ask yourself this. Would it be a smart idea to release ONLY on X1 and pc? Or releasing on X!,PS4,pc especially when both the X1 and PS4 will have expanded customer bases with the PS4 likely outpacing the X1 as i has to this point? No it makes ZERO sense from a business perspective to lose out on profits especially when the platform you'd cut out is the leader.

I'll buy it if it comes out on the PS4. I got a 360 for Halo 3 and Gears last generation and ended up playing way more of my PS3 (once 2009 hit). In the long run I didn't play a lot from any other franchises on it besides SC: Conviction, Alan Wake, MW1 and Left 4 Dead 1 (I borrowed a few games from my brother as well). Haven't used it much since Halo: Reach and a few hours of Halo 4 and Gears 3 to be honest (I think it's been a year or so now). I can't really justify putting down 5oo euro, when I could just buy a load of games instead and I already own a PS4. Xbox One doesn't really have any advantages with Live anymore either. What I've said may sound fanboyish, but I know in the long run if I get an Xbox One for Titanfall, I'll regret it, despite the fact Titanfall looks awesome. I think a few are in my boat and are pretending the game is terrible just because they don't want an Xbox One.

What's awesome with Destiny is its mythic sci-fi open world setting and Bungie described it as a "shared-world fps" game where you can coop with your buddies much like Mass Effect 3's multiplayer. Destiny is like Mass Effect+Halo+Borderlands+Journe y altogether in one game but Destiny also has its own unique style.

As for Titanfall 2, I'm pretty sure they will release it across all platforms but I don't think Wii U will get it. And yea I do agree with you, they need to release a TF patch soon. Developers should address bugs and frame rate issues before releasing their games rather than releasing them too soon and just fix the problems later. Patches shouldn't be as much as last gen with PS3 and Xbox 360.

It's funny tho how some or most video game websites review games like LA Noire, Heavy Rain, etc and say things like it freezes a lot, it's buggy, frame rate issues yada yada. But for more popular games like COD, Battlefield and now Titanfall they seem to not mentioned frame rate issues or bugs that much. IGN sugarcoated COD games in their reviews and make them seem like they're all awesome when only one or two are. They must be getting paid for saying these things lol

Thanks! Still waiting for Final Fantasy Versus XIII or XV whatever they call it now xD

It makes good business sense to go multiplat if they do for Titanfall 2. Shutting out a much larger install base is stupid and really hurt them this time around. Just hope they put in a real campaign that is offline and also a bots mode in case your signal is spotty and you would like to playa game you paid $60 for.

Congratulations? (I guess)
You got yourself a shooter. Now go milk the fuq out of it!
Oh and at least the devs know they got work for another year.

All I got out of the entire article is that they are publishing the sewuels of the game...publishing rights. So respawn are using EA to publish the next game.

It'll be out in a year without a doubt

Right away, Respawn needs to compile all the future DLC, rework current maps, and slap a Titanfall 2 label on it, releasing it for the PS4!
SP campaign would be nice too. Please.

I don't see how the performance clause could only be for first week sales. This doesn't really make sense. Although I would like to see Titanfall on PS4 eventually since I don't plan on getting an X1 any time soon.

It's a shame but there is no way Microsoft will let this go "multiplat". Be realistic folks. It will cost Microsoft alot more to secure it but it's going to happen. Sony doesn't need this game anyway. I don't see what the fuss is about.

Won't be a popular comment but hey ho.

I say go for it, if they want to spend hundred million or more on it, go for it... ruins your business model, ruins your money for developing new IP's , but hey, MS has never suffered for not releasing games right? right dusty 360?

just perpetuates the belief that no new IP's and can't compete without huge subsidies. not what shareholders want to see.

Wasn't there that article how Sony showed EA that they could have made more money off the PS4 than they did from the exclusive deal with Microsoft?

If that was true... Well we all know how EA likes money.

Though small....there is a demographic that will shun a publisher for practices both legit & dirty.

I have friends that won't buy COD for giving timed exclusivity to MS last gen. Kinda crazy. ..but I get it.

Its not just about specific games...its about supporting a publisher who treats its consumers with respect.

Might've seemed like a hood idea to get in bed with MS, but it diminishes any goodwill EA has moving forward. Not by much....people will still buy battlefront for example, but some won't because EA is a garbage pub.

I won't buy Activision games full price because it's activision. Shady company, although EA hasnt been any better lately.
