Titanfall Could Have Been on the PS4 maybe even Vita

Basically Sony seemed to not want the game on their platforms.

Titanfall was supposed to be just on PC then Microsoft courted them to bring it to X1, Respawn was even willing to make a vita version to get Sony to the table.

"It mentions that they essentially pleaded with Sony, saying “Listen, things are about to be locked in behind the scenes. If you want this, please talk to us”, which Sony again declined."

"It also mentions that at a point later in development, Zampella and West sat down with Riccitiello to tell him that they didn’t have enough manpower to develop for any consoles other than Xbone and, maybe, PC, and that Respawn was essentially out of money and the game would need to be delayed and that they’d cut single player. EA ended up having to find the funding for the project with a first party, and Microsoft were willing to put up the money to actually finish the game."

So Microsoft invested to get the game and it could have also went on PS4 if Sony actually wanted it.

Who cares, Titanfall lacks the content.

That does make sense tho, limited budget would explain the modes, which are essentially the same and the underwhelming campaign also.

Let's be honest, that's not even a campaign. All I remember from the Titanfall campaign is a bloke coughing as he dies and that's about it.
