The exclusive rights to the "Titanfall" franchise hasn't been sold to Microsoft, said Saturday by Vince Zampella, Respawn Entertainment's CEO and co-founder.

What prompted Zampella to make that clarification was an announcement teased during Major Nelson's latest podcast. As mentioned by MP1ST, an announcement pertaining to the future of "Titanfall" will be made next Monday during the Twitch stream at South by Southwest. “Apparently during this live stream, which will start at 11 pm eastern/8 pm pacific, we are going to be exploring or showcasing the future of Titanfall,” said Xbox's Jeff Rubenstein. Rubenstein teased further on Twitter, saying "I'm told they'll be unveiling an amazing new collaboration in the Titanfall universe."

With speculation running rampant of Microsoft potentially securing "Titanfall" as an Xbox franchise, Zampella addressed concerns about Monday's planned announcement on Twitter. "For those asking about the 'future of titanfall' announcement, I'm confused as to what that is. We did not sell tf to MS," Zampella tweeted. After speaking with Geoff Keighley, who will host the "Titanfall Twitch event Monday, Zamplella clarified even further. "Talked with @geoffkeighley and it looks like the 'future' thing is just something fun. Not how I would have described it, but still fun." Zampella has declined to comment on what system a "Titanfall" sequel may end up on, as he's waiting to see if the first game will be a success.

"Titfanall" will arrive in North America on March 11th for the Xbox One and PC. A port for the Xbox 360 will arrive on March 25th.
