The Xbox 360 version of Titanfall has remained a big question mark for months now. Titanfall is releasing on Xbox One and PC with development by Respawn Entertainment, but the Xbox 36o version is being handled by external studio Bluepoint Games. Speculation rose even more when it was announced that the Xbox 360 version would be coming out a full 2 weeks after the Xbox One and PC versions. Are things not going so well for the 360 version?
According to producer Drew McCoy, everything is A-OK with the 360 version of Titanfall. In a forum post on NeoGAF, he posted the following: “Oh, and for all the speculation going on about the 360 version. It’s coming along really well, Bluepoint is full of phenomenally talented devs,” McCoy said.
This news doesn’t surprise me, because I don’t believe the reason the game was delayed 2 weeks has anything to do with the game’s quality, to be completely honest. Titanfall is being coined as Xbox One’s killer app, so they are obviously wanting everyone to buy the Xbox One version. Delay the 360 version a couple weeks and they are guaranteed to squeeze out a few more sales for the next-gen console. Those devils.
I expect that the 360 version will be just fine, and when I check it out that will more than likely be the version that I get. Whenever a game is released on both current and last gen consoles, you know that the last gen console is being pushed to its limits while the current-gen console isn’t anywhere near its full potential. The 360 still has some life left in it, so if you can wait a couple weeks then go with that version.
