EA: ‘Titanfall’ is a ‘have-to-own’ title; Future of Respawn IP is bright

Electronic Arts seems to be smitten with Respawn Entertainment’s much-anticipated title Titanfall, as the publisher’s financial chief called the mech first-person shooter a “have-to-own” game that will be around for a “long, long time,” according to a report today from GameSpot.

EA CFO Blake Jorgensen, during a speech today at the Stifel Technology, Media, and Entertainment Conference, said that sequels seem to be in the Titanfall franchise’s future.

“As you can imagine, (Titanfall) will be a franchise that’s around for a long, long time,” Jorgensen said.

Jorgensen, who just recently laid eyes on the game, called Titanfall a “piece of IP that is now very different from anything you’ve ever seen.”

“Very exciting gameplay,” Jorgensen said.

However, Jorgensen did confess that the game’s exclusive rights deal with Microsoft platforms –– Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC –– would “limit the size” of Titanfall’s impact.

In November, Jorgensen did say that he did believe that future games in the Titanfall series would make it onto “multiple product platforms.” You can read that full Examiner report by clicking here.

The comments from Jorgensen come as EA confirmed that the Titanfall beta would launch on Valentine’s Day. You can read that full Examiner report by clicking here.

Respawn launched a website today for those wishing to register for the Titanfall beta testing period.

A Microsoft platform exclusive, Titanfall will drop for the Xbox One and Windows PC on March 11, though the Xbox 360 version of the game will be delayed until March 25.
