What the last 2 guys said, EA just has publishing rights to TF 2, and even that sounds like it was in a contract prior to this too since it was based on how well TF1 would do. Respawn still controls the IP.

That makes it a vastly much higher chance to be exclusive again, since EA gets the first rights of refusal.

All it really means is EA gets to publish the next game. If they hadn't bought the rights, then Respawn could have approached any publisher regarding a sequel.

Would have been hilarious if Activision ended up with it.

Who knows what this means... I don't think it means Titanfall 2 will be exclusive though. EA loves money too much for that.

This is actually sad for Respawn. I always thought they wanted to own the IP they worked on so publishers couldn't control them into a release cycle. But w/e good on them they cashed out.

i highly doubt EA would allow TF2 to be exclusive, especially since PS4 is selling so well.

They still own the IP. If EA wants in on Titanfall 3, they must pay up yet again.

MGS4 remained PS3 exclusive due to Sony moneyhats even though X360 was over 6mil ahead in sales at the time. There's more to deals than marketshare

Publishing rights not IP. Learn the difference please.
