Update: So it seems the initial reports were wrong. Respawn Entertainment is in fact using Microsoft's dedicated cloud service to host their servers for TitanFall. There is a twist, though. It turns out that Respawn is utilizing Microsoft's Cloud for the Xbox 360, something Infinity Ward said could not be done. This has been confirmed to me via Respawn Entertainments community manager.
Does this open the door up for the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: Ghosts to have dedicated servers? Infinity Ward has beat around the bush with excuses, but the potential is clearly there.
So it has now been confirmed, all three variants of TitanFall - Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC will run on the Microsoft Cloud dedicated multiplayer servers.
Original Article: TitanFall is shaping up to be one of the largest games of 2014. On top of this, it also looks like it will be a true competitor to the juggernaut that is Call of Duty. With that being said, comparisons are unavoidable.
One comparison that came up earlier this week was due to the announcement of dedicated severs for the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts. Not getting to much into it, the Xbox One Cloud would offer up the service, exclusive to Xbox One titles.
This caused confusion, as Infinity Ward was adamant that the Xbox 360 could not utilize this service. On the contrary, Respawn Entertainment claimed that a cloud service would be used on the Xbox 360 version of TitanFall to host it's dedicated servers next to the Xbox One and PC variants.
Today we get some clarification, as cloud based dedicated servers have been confirmed for TitanFall on all platforms (Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC). The catch? They are Respawn Entertainments own cloud technology, and not Microsoft. This is good for several reasons. The obvious being that all platforms will have dedicated servers.
The hidden gem here is that the title will not be bound by Microsoft servers, leaving the door for a PlayStation version as a viable option in the future. That's only an assumption though, so don't get to excited just yet.
