EA have put to bed long-standing rumours that Respawn Entertainment’s first ever game, Titanfall, will eventually make its way to the Playstation 4, confirming during an earnings call that it will remain an exclusive title for Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC, ”for the life of the title.”
Given the excitement the game is generating it’s a major coup for Microsoft to retain Titanfall as an exclusive title for their console. It’s release in March of next year may very well be enough to sway a considerable number of people into purchasing an Xbox One.
Following the story being broken Vince Zampella of Respawn took to Twitter to say this:
“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, Vince was also quick to reassure people that Respawn will be creating games for the PS4, replying to a fan asking that very question by saying, “of course we will, just not the first Titanfall.”
So, while the original Titanfall may not be making its way to Sony’s console it’s very possible that a sequel will.
