Respawn Entertainment producer Drew McCoy, along with many gamers, readily put much-anticipated often in from of the studios’ upcoming Microsoft platform exclusive Titanfall, so much so that, according to a report today form, he called charges that the developer manufactured media support for the game “insulting,” according to a report today from VG 24/7.
In a post to NeoGAF, McCoy called the media bribing claims ludicrous, and that any praise or anticipation for Titanfall is richly deserved.
“Anyone who thinks we weren’t living in the shadow of decade-plus old established franchises at our reveal at E3 are as crazy as their conspiracy theories of anyone getting paid off,” McCoy said.
McCoy said Respawn has had to “fight tooth and nail” to create not only a game like Titanfall but also one that garnered such support from critics and coverage from the media.
“I get it that it’s not for everyone, but to say we’re paying anyone off is downright insanity,” McCoy said, “not to mention the height of insulting.”
McCoy also commented this week on how the Xbox 360 version of the game is doing, saying that it’s “coming along really well.”
Electronic Arts had announced Titanfall would be delayed for Xbox 360 by two weeks earlier this year in order for the game’s studio Bluepoint to put the finishing touches on the title.
Titanfall is due to head out for the Xbox One and PC on March 11 and will launch for the Xbox 360 on March 25.
