Titanfall rights now in EA’s hands, according to rumour mill


By on March 22, 2014 at 8:03 am

Titanfall is now the property of Electronic Arts, according to an anonymous source.

Gamespot describes its source as reputable, but gave no identifying information. According to this whisperer, EA had the option to pick up the rights to Titanfall if it sold strongly enough to warrant a full franchise effort.

We haven’t had any hard sales data yet but Microsoft’s Phil Harrison has said it’s “blowing the doors off” on Xbox One, so we can’t imagine the publisher turning down the opportunity.

On the other hand, Respawn was formed by Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella after EA allegedly wooed them away from Activision and Call of Duty. They were in an excellent position to bargain and it seems unlikely they wouldn’t have made an effort to retain their intellectual property – but perhaps the coolness between West and Zampella caused by certain revelations from the ensuing lawsuit has put them off the whole shebang.

EA trotted out its usual refusal to comment on rumours and speculation when asked about the tale.

EA coming in at this stage would only be because someones getting a lot of money now with EA running a rinse repeat routine in the future.

I’m not cynical much.



Cynical? Yes.

Wrong? No.


No surprise they wanted in , now it actually sold a bunch

Very easy for them to sit back , see its success full and now buy the rights
Saved them a “business risk”

Still waiting to see how this game pans out, already talk on the web about Titanfall 2



99% sure they funded the first game…

Respawn mentioned early on in Titanfalls development that they’re turning this into a franchise.


They had better do something to boost the replay-ability, it’s already starting to get a little old.
