Right now, the only way anyone will be able to play Respawn’s Titanfall in 2014 is on a PC or on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles. But what about the PlayStation 4?
Currently, EA and Microsoft have an exclusivity deal for consoles. That means Titanfall won’t be found anywhere else for the time being. However, Respawn lead artist Joel Emslie hints there might be hope for Titanfall on a Sony console eventually.
When asked by Eurogamer about the chances of Titanfall hitting the PlayStation 4, Emslie was downright optimistic. “It’s definitely not out of the question,” Emslie replied. “We have a huge appreciation for the fans. Coming out and showing it to everybody, we’re super nervous and wanted to make sure everybody loved it. We love all our fans, whatever console they support. So yeah. We want to make everybody happy, but this is where we’re at right now.”
For its part, EA is remaining tight-lipped about Titanfall on any other consoles save for the Xboxes. Perhaps the picture will become clearer in 2014 once Titanfall actually ships, but for now, PlayStation 4′s prospective owners know there’s a chance they too will get to enjoy Respawn’s first game.
