Titanfall Is Never, Ever Coming To PlayStation
Titanfall is, arguably, the best looking next-gen title next to something like InFamous: Second Son. Yes yes, it’s a first person shooter, but have you see the gameplay videos from E3? This looks like the most exciting shooter to release in a long, long time, and so far we’ve only heard of release on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Sadly, at least for Sony fans, this isn’t ever going to change.
Microsoft and EA revealed yesterday that Titanfall will not be a timed exclusive, but rather a “lifetime” exclusive, with the publisher signing a deal with the console manufacturer for Xbox exclusivity and not really caring that the game will come to PC. So long as it’s not on PlayStation, it seems.

The funny thing is that Respawn Studios, the people actually making the game, had no idea this deal was going through. Vince Zampella was quick to tweet after hearing the news, saying he was disappointed that the game would not be coming to PlayStation.
Always MS exclusive at launch, great partner and focus is good for a startup. EA made a deal for the rest, we only found out recently =(

However, this also gave him the chance to express his eagerness to work on a PS4 title, which means that Respawn Games aren’t exactly all ruled out for Sony’s console.
“Of course we will [make PlayStation 4 games], just not the first Titanfall.”
So if you’ve been really excited for Titanfall and you’re picking up a PS4 instead of an Xbox One, then you’re a bit out of luck. Good news is that if the game ever gets a sequel, you could maybe, maybe be playing that with the fancy new Dualshock 4 controller in the future.
But that’s not happening anytime soon.
