Industry Insiders Disagree On Titanfall Coming To PS4

Will the PlayStation 4 ever see Titanfall? Maybe, maybe not.

Industry insider Ahsan Rasheed (aka "Thuway") has been saying that it's definitely possible, and that fans should "make noise" so Sony can make it happen. However, another industry insider, Pete Dodd (aka Famousmortimer) countered that idea:

"Guys, Microsoft bought exclusivity for titanfall 1. Tweeting at Sony or zampella won’t change that fact. It’s a done deal."

If you want to play titanfall one you need a 360, xb1, or a capable pc. If you only own a ps4, you are sh*t out of luck until Titanfall 2."

He said he has "no idea" why Thuway is trying to make people believe otherwise; the bottom line is that Titanfall just isn't coming to the PS4. However, both are in agreement that the sequel will. If so, it would follow a similar line taken by BioWare's Mass Effect franchise last generation; the original was exclusive to the Xbox platform and then the sequel came to PS3.

Personally, I'm getting a little tired of hearing about Titanfall. There are other games on the way, you know.

But eventually Mass Effect 1 did come to PS3 despite that exclusivity. There's always a way.

Not that I care though. I like giant robots but CoD with giant robots and multiplayer only isn't worth my time.

TitanFall coming to the PS4 is incomparable to Mass Effect 1 on PS3. Who would play TitanFall 1 when 2 comes out? Its a multiplayer only experience so the user base will move on to 2 once it comes out. Whereas gamers can always go back to Mass Effect 1 for the engaging experience. Imagine if Sony did finagle this title onto the PS4 somehow? That would be such a coup. Would make MS look real bad after all this only on the X talk. Lol..

I'm with you on the speak of this game. Not my thing. I would play it because I am always open to try a game but honestly it is exactly like COD with robots. Is like the Titans are PERKS. Kinda reminded me of The Killzone 3 Exos.

really not fussed - rarely play multiplayer - prefer a good story driven single player game. If it wasn't multiplayer only might be interested.

in terms of the mp only, how's this for a blinkered view of gaming from the developer:

"We make these single-player missions that take up all the focus of the studio, that take a huge team six months to make, and players run through it in 8 minutes," he said. "And how many people finish the single-player game? It's a small percentage. It's like, everyone plays through the first level, but 5% of people finish the game.

seems to me that they are trying to jump on the cod bandwagon, rather than making a great piece of memorable entertainment!

The problem with this news, and every single site is covered it the same way. (Actually Ben has used the exact same article title as the N4G.com article title, ahaha).

Thuway never specifically said Titanfall 1 was coming to PS4, he just said Titanfall. Since EA has announced that Titanfall 1 is 100% exclusive to MS platforms, I never once thought that he was talking about TF1. He was obviously talking about the next title.

I could care less if it comes or not. I'm not sold on it and the fact that it's online only makes me less interested in it.

However as World pointed out above there are ways the same as the ME ended up on PS3.

I think if Sony really wanted it, we would see it. It's apparent Sony isn't worried about it and has faith in their games. As they should because they all look more exciting than Titanfall.

I really wanna see more about evolve. Looks like Borderlands 2. That's excellent.

Agreed. There are plenty of more interesting games coming out for the PS4 and really, this game will come and go when something a lot better comes along and the tag "next gen" is attached to it.

Second Son comes to mind as a the first of many.

Keep playing!

Comments like i'm tired of hearing about titan fall is sad, because we were on the other side of things with last of us. people kept hearing about that game, and kept downplaying it. Titan fall looks good we should not be like them but better then them.

one thing i hate about this industry.
no matter how many times the developers, publishers, and M$, SCREAM it from the rooftops, people STILL refuse to get it through their thick skulls!
oh well, keep living in your world of denial and false hope.

It definitely wouldn't be the first time that a developer/publisher/manufacturer was proven wrong/ busted lying, now would it?

Titanfall is more than welcome to come to the ps3, the ps4, the vita. I welcome it to any and all sony platforms anyone so desires. In the end it makes no difference to me as it is so far outside from what I'm looking for in a game that I'm not buying.

Only way I see myself playing Titanfall is if it comes to ps4 and is a plus freebie, then I'd throw it a couple hours of my time.

It's possible. EA may say that it's lifetime exclusive, but that doesn't necessary make it so in this age when nothing is sacred. I mean, if ME and NG3: Razor's Edge can go multi-plat despite being published by the console manufacturers, I'm not going to discount the possibility entirely.

That being said, whatever. Not interested in Titanfall in the slightest. MS and the XBO can keep it.

yeah i give u a bet that all the 360/XB1 fan boys are making all the noise behind this game and i gunna say that a huge amount of the sales are gunna come from either one or both of the PC or 360 and its not going sell as many XB1's as M$ wants it too.

happy gaming =)

This game is going to flop. Its so obvious. EA will not promote it because they don't want it to compete with BF. Remember what happened to Fuse?

Until the systems are hacked and allow Windows to be installed to play the PC version (and other PC games)...or maybe even 'cross-play' each others' titles.

Why is this game getting so much hype? It looks like every other shooter though Halo, BF and COD will still be better. I don't here nothing about it offline either.

It's mp only and looks nothing like other shooters. But that doesn't make it good only interesting. It looks like there's only one way to play and its a linear transition from running> shooting> wall running> shooting> getting in a robot> more shooting> dying> repeating.

I completely agree.

@bigrailer19, you say it looks nothing like other shooters. I don't see how? I mean to me, it looks exactly like COD. It really does. There is no hate or malice or anything in what I am saying, I genuinely think that. All this hype totally confuses me.

I already suspect M$ is paying "journalists" off behind the scenes for great review scores to hype up the game even more. It looks like CoD with a double jump and robots.
It'll be M$'s last hope at Xbone catching up with Ps4 sales in 2014. Expect M$ to go "all-in" on marketing this exclusivity.

i am playing the beta it right now (on the PC with a PS4 controller) - believe me - it is worth the hype. This franchise will be huge.

You like anything that's a shooter though. Although we share most of the same feelings regarding CoD, Titanfall looks like the developer succeeded in making a mp game linear. Every gameplay I've seen is the same thing over and over. Meaning gameplay doesn't vary much regardless of it being online.

Honestly, I think the reason for the hype is the COD dudebro's.

Over the years everyone, literally everyone, knows COD, has probably played at least a bit of COD, or has watched it.

Battlefield as well. BF3 and BF4 have both been pretty popular and have been covered a lot in media due to the various issues.

I think the biggest reason for Titanfall's hype is because it is a new Online shooter. An entirely new COD, which plays like COD, but is set in a different world, doesn't worry about SP, and is fairly easy to play. People are always excited for new things.

It will be interesting to see how Titanfall lasts though. I think Respawn need to get cranking on TF2 to release next year. The problem with COD is that each game doesn't have much longevity.

Figured when they kept saying Titanfall may come to PS4 they meant the sequels. Also after watching Gametrailers Twitch stream of the game I still do not understand the hype behind it.
