Respawn May Make Games for Other Consoles in the Future

March 18, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment


Since Titanfall is exclusive to Xbox consoles and the PC, it’s not surprising that many fans have wondered if Respawn Entertainment will continue to work exclusively with Microsoft in the future. Respawn’s community manager, Abbie Heppe, recently addressed the matter.

Respawn has a relatively small development team, so the narrower focus helped them ensure Titanfall was complete on time. That said, the thought of making multiplatform games is “not excluded from future projects [Respawn] might do.”

What do you think? Does this mean we’ll see Titanfall 2 on the PS4?

Respawn’s Plans for Titanfall

March 15, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment


Titanfall has already been out for a few days, and so far it has met with high praise and success. Of course, fans have been asking all sorts of questions about it, so here are a few things we learned.

According to Respawn’s Vince Zampella, you’ll eventually be able to give names to your custom loadouts. He also confirmed that fixes are in the work for some issues with the PC version.

Respawn’s Drew McCoy also answered some questions. In particular, he said a companion app for the game is in the works and will be ready soon. Although he didn’t give any details, the question was specifically about a SmartGlass/iOS/Android app from which players could access their loadout, stats, mini-map.

Future patches will fix chat issues, enhance multiplayer lobbies, implement private lobbies, and more. When asked when they would increase the frame rate on the Xbox One, he said, “Maybe never,” as their top priority is the game’s performance.

He also mentioned that there are no plans to up the player count for a match.

Do you have any questions about Titanfall? Check out the rest of McCoy’s answers and consider leaving a question of your own.

Titanfall: Day One Patch for Xbox One

March 9, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


If you buy Titanfall for the Xbox One, the first patch will be available to download as soon as you get the game on March 11. In fact, the patch is available now, for those players who get the game early. Respawn already confirmed that if you do manage to get an early (and legitimate) copy of Titanfall, you can play it without fear of being banned.

Respawn hasn’t released patch notes, so we don’t know for sure what the patch contains, but we do know that it’s 840 MB. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

Respawn: Titanfall Improvements, Xbox 360 Details; Response to Accusations

February 20, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


The Titanfall beta is almost over, and Respawn has responded to a few different questions and concerns on NeoGAF.

First, Software Engineer Rayme Vinson said the full Xbox One game will contain many “under-the-hood performance improvements” compared to the beta version. Of course, the beta itself allowed them to see additional issues that needed to be fixed and worked on before the game is released on March 11.

Next, Producer Drew McCoy confirmed the beta’s usefulness in uncovering bugs and glitches. He also added that the Xbox 360 version, which was not a part of the beta tests and won’t release until March 25, is “coming along really well.”

McCoy also responded to the accusations that Respawn has paid the media to talk about the game, in order to build up hype. He said they’ve fought for Titanfall’s attention and coverage through legitimate means, and such accusations are “the height of insulting.”

Now, we’ve heard a lot of good things about Titanfall, but we never thought Respawn was paying for the attention—after all, a lot of the excitement came from fans themselves after the game was revealed. Only the most diehard conspiracy theorists would think Respawn was paying all those people. At least there has been an official statement on the matter, which should quiet the rumors somewhat.
