Microsoft at E3: Titanfall series is now Microsoft exclusive

Do you see this happening? Out of the 3 consoles, Microsoft has the money to do something like this. Thoughts?

It is not MS or even EA's decision to make the IP belongs to Respawn. The real question is how much will it take(if they are even willing) for Respawn to sell it to MS or EA. Remember these guys already went through the hassle of not owning the rights to their game I doubt they wanna go through it again.

I am going to guess that EA/Respawn is going to want to assess their returns on TitanFall over a longer period before committing to long term exclusivity on any platform.

They will go with whatever makes more sense from a monetization standpoint. Certainly, Microsoft could offer a ton of money but it's far too early to make an announcement at E3 I think.

the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. ~ Anton Ego

As a company yes Microsoft does have the money, however for the Xbox division that's a lot of cash to put down on. With so many new takes on multiplayer like titanfall and evolve betting on any single one seems risky at this juncture.

Yes microsoft has the money, but you gotta understand that xbox is just a small division from micosoft and they're allowed a certain amount of money for that division. One thing i've learned from last gen is that 3rd party exclusives usually become multiplat sooner or later. Don't be surprise to see titanfall series on the ps4 later on.

I don't think so. But if it did happen I wouldn't be surprised.

As other's stated that decision is largely up to Respawn, not MS or EA. Xbox can offer all the money they want, if Respawn wants it to go multiplat then it will. Only reason Respawn would have to sign exclusivity deal with MS is if it would guarantee company success over the life time of the series.

I hope it doesn't. I'll have to start building an ark to rescue 2 of every animal for the flood of tears it will create
