Multiplayer-centric title to make extensive use of cloud technology
Respawn’ Entertainment’s debut game will be called Titanfall and is exclusive to Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
According to a leaked Game Informer cover on Google Play, as spotted on NeoGaf, the title is said to a “bold vision” for next-gen multiplayer, and will take place in a sci-fi setting featuring giant robots. It was claimed the title will feature extensive use of cloud technology.
An Xbox 360 version of the title is said to be in development at another studio.
The game is expected to be on show at next week’s E3 show.
The Xbox console exclusivity follows a similar report in April which also claimed Respawn’s first game would not be released on PS4 or the Wii U. It was also claimed the game would be built on a modified version of the Source engine.
Respawn Entertainment was formed in 2010 by Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella following their departure from the Call of Duty developer amidst accusations of insubordination from publisher Activision.
After a lengthy court battle, the new studio signed a publishing deal with EA, which now has a close partnership with Microsoft and the Xbox One.
