As we all know by now, Titanfall ended up being an Xbox and PC exclusive, much to the chagrin of loyal PlayStation 4 fans everywhere. While Respawn Entertainment assured everyone that future Titanfall games would hit the PlayStation 4, what happened with this first game?
In the Titanfall "Final Hours" app, we finally have our official answer from Respawn about why Titanfall isn't on the PlayStation 4.
According to the development team, Respawn Entertainment reached out to Sony to get the specs of the then unannounced PlayStation 4 system in the early stages of Titanfall development. Sony "wasn't ready to talk about its plans" involving the new console, thus leaving respawn with no choice but to pass on a PS4 version of the game. However, Sony tried to offer Respawn a compromise.
If the company made a PlayStation Vita version instead, Sony would help create it.
As we know, that didn't happen and the rest is history: Respawn ended up going with the Xbox One due to Microsoft being more open about the then in-development system.
Are you mad at Sony for costing you a PS4 version of Titanfall? Would you have played a PS4 version of Titanfall? Let us know in the comments and on Facebook!
