It has been rumored by many that Respawn Entertainment's next gen first person shooter, Titanfall, would be making its way to PlayStation 4 after the Xbox One and other Microsoft platforms' timed exclusivity ran out, despite Microsoft officials not mentioning a timed exclusivity for the title.
However, it's been revealed this week that Titanfall will not be making its way to PlayStation 4, or any non-Microsoft console at all.
The rumors started when Microsoft's Major Nelson started an 'ask me anything' session on Reddit and attempted to avoid a question on the details of the Xbox One exclusivity rights for Titanfall.
Major Nelson's answer to the Reddit AMA question was "As far as being an exclusive that's really a question for Titanfall. I’m not worried about it though." This made many immediately assume that Major Nelson avoided this question because the previously announced exclusivity for Titanfall wasn't 100% what they made it out to be.
However, it's been made clear that Nelson's roundabout answer was because it is Microsoft's policy for representatives to not talk definitively for another company.
To make things clearer, EA has responded to the rumors by confirming that Titanfall will be a lifetime exclusive to the Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
Blake J. Jorgensen, the CFO of EA stated that "In the case of Titanfall, it's a brand new IP," said Jorgensen, "and it's exclusive only, for the life of the title, on Xbox One and Xbox 360 and PCs."
