Respawn debut exclusive to Xbox, always-online – rumour

Monday, 29 April 2013 23:09 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The team that brought us Call of Duty has a big new game in the works, and if today’s on dit is true, Microsoft will be the only platform holder to benefit from it.

Kotaku cites two anonymous, unrelated sources for word that Respawn Entertainment’s first game will be exclusive to Xbox 360 and whatever Microsoft names its next Xbox console, which is due for reveal on May 21.

The sources said the untitled new game is, predictably, a multiplayer-focused shooter. As you’d expect from a multiplayer title, sources said that it has no offline mode. It boasts two factions, and every game contributes something towards the overall balance between the two. Matches are said to support 16 players as well as AI-controlled enemies.

The futuristic title features at least two types of troop – heavily-armed infantry, and Titans, giant exoskeletons described as quite agile. Only a certain number of these huge mechs can be brought onto each map, and infantry have the equipment needed to take one down if necessary.

You will recall, of course, that Respawn filed a trademark for Titan not long ago. The rumour has some legs to it because there’s a wifely-held believe that the core members of Infinity Ward who left the company to found Respawn had grown frustrated with the Modern Warfare series, wanting to make a science fiction game.

Other details from the report have the game running on Source Engine, and not looking quite as good as the Frostbite-built Battlefield 4. Respawn is said to be working on the lead version, which is for the next Xbox, codenamed Durango, while another studio will develop the Xbox 360 port.

Interestingly, Kotaku also threw some juicy Durango rumours into its report, saying that Microsoft is trailing Sony in getting content ready for a holiday 2013 console launch and aggressively seeking exclusives.

We’re expecting to see Respawn’s game at EA’s E3 2013 conference.

    It’s moves like this, why EA are losing money on games.

    Why would you limit the potential of your new IP, unless this has the same impact as Gears, EA might just flop with this title, by releasing on one platform.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what the game is about, but outside of gamers, people will not buy this game cause it’s from Ex Infinity guys, I think this is being over hyped, in my opinion.

    The problem with these games tends to be that they don’t cover any ground that hasn’t already been covered by Battlefield 2142 or Planetside.

  9. Erthazus

    That is really interesting. First we need to see the game.

    But in my opinion making exclusive game from EA that wants to beat Activision is a mistake, but this is interesting because you know, Sony can suck balls after this exclusive deal.

    but Always-Online shit is probably the only reason why MS paid for the exclusive. MS want’s to push that shitty concept no matter what. Even if they will pay a lot of money to EA just for one game from the makers of Call Of Duty.

    #13 2 years ago

    Look a multiplayer focused game…. No. I’m done. I’ve quit call of duty and basically every game focused on multiplayer. Halo started to get sells then Activision saw that and went after the market. Now we have games being made solely for multiplayer. I’ll play an mmo if I want to play a game focused on multiplayer. It’s ridiculous how people actually enjoy this for basically ever. I’m no saint either I’ve put in my time into bops2. But it just came to a point where I said WTF am I doing? Rinse and repeat. That what multiplayer shooters are all about. same maps, same guns. Halo used to be my favorite game now I can’t stand it. So much focus being put into the long lasting effects of a game… the multiplayer. It’s never going to change. Tomb Raider, The last of us, God of War, mass effect, Uncharted. Games focused on story yet multiplayer gets crammed into it’s asses for the purpose of sales. Valuable resources being wasted on a mode that no one will play a month after realease. Mass Effect a perfect example. Bioware released free Multiplayer dlc because it’s multiplayer was dying. Don’t tell me EA would actually green light free dlc to a game who many people play. Exhibit A: Battlefield 3. Want to know why this generation of games are basically dog crap compared to previous. Well you just read it.

  16. Phoenixblight


    By that logic Microsoft would be doing the same thing. They are both getting rid of things that they don’t deem necessary anymore in today’s environment. If Sony wanted to just survive they wouldn’t be selling parts of the company for such a large sum.

    #16 2 years ago
  17. Erthazus

    @16, Microsoft does not do that. They don’t sell their strategic buildings. also, Sony sold for example one building in US but at the same time they are trying to rent it because they need that building.
    MS making money. A lot of money, especially from Windows.

    MS can defend it’s interests pretty much in every aspect with their wallet and i’m sure as hell that Respawn’s new game that is a Call Of Duty wannabe costs a LOT to be exclusive not just on one platform but on XBOX brand in general. That’s cool.

    Hahah apparently someone needs to read an article before posting or are you trying to be like BDH? They sold the building and plan to sell it parts which will bring in even more money. I see nothing in this article suggesting they are out of money.

    I also doubt this game will be exclusive MS will not be throwing 20+ million to have an exclusive. Timed exclusive sure but not a exclusive like Gears.

  23. ManuOtaku

    I think this was kind of expected, call of duty fans and first person shooters fans in general are more located on the xbox brand, and it will be the same thing next gen, adding to this that microsoft had to pay some exclusive deal to it, the more incentive to take this move, again not that surprise for this, and i think is not a bad move by EA, quite the opposite i think is a good one.

    #23 2 years ago
  24. CPC_RedDawn

    I bet its a 6 month exclusive deal. As EA would be stupid to not release the game for PC, PS4, PS3, and Wii U with millions of potential more sales. Unless Microsoft has put down a bahjillion dollars for the exclusive deal. Or the rumors could be true about EA apparently going to just ONE platform, that platform could be the next Xbox… THAT would be interesting. PS3, PS4, Wii U, Never get Madden, FIFA, Crysis, BF4, etc… Only on 720… Hopefully this is NOT true but it would sure shake things up. Microsoft wouldn’t even need to focus on games at all. Just off load all their IP’s to EA and other companies and let the third party games from other companies come too. Focusing their efforts on the software inside the device like apps, services, UI, and Kinect. Makes sense when you think about it but this would cost Microsoft a shit ton of money that I don’t think they are willing to spend even though they have it sitting in the bank.

    EA that is the most hated company takes a developer that is “no one” in the eyes of most of the casual pubblic (they can’t promote the game as “from the creators of Modern Warfare” in many Countries) and let them work on an exclusive for a machine late on development and an “old gen” hardware on a B class engine.

    @ Erthazus: “MS making money. A lot of money, especially from Windows”

    Are you JOKING??? Microsoft is loosing a lot of money, ESPECIALLY from Windows nowadays. Windows 8 is a MASSIVE commercial failure, even when compared to Vista, which is to say something (they’ve invested a LOT in development and advertising and are not getting a return on investment).
    Their “Surface” only managed to get ridiculous sales despite a highly expensive marketing campaign and they can’t seem to adapt to the changing market (tablets/smartphones cannibalizing home computers).
    Windows Phone isn’t such a failure, but it’s nowhere near a success and doesn’t seem to progress enough to be anything else than a minor actor on mobile OS (completely crushed by Android and iOS).

    As for gaming, they’ve lost a considerable amount of money for years in this division (I don’t even know if they are making a profit). They are pouring a LOT of money on Xbox to “occupy” the area and try to achieve the same position as they were in during those last 20 years regarding Windows.

    That’s the problem with Microsoft today: they make money by numbers, but they don’t make as much profit as they used to (compared to their tremendous investments), because of a succession of massive mistakes (Zune, Windows 8, Windows RT, Surface, etc.).

    #30 2 years ago
  31. Tech-N9ne


    Your nothing but a clueless monkey, you’d think since you can type up all this you’d actually know something.

    Anyone who think Microsoft is all about Windows, Zune and surface, is totally lost.

    Microsft is made up of several billon dollar earning divisions (Windows, Entertainment, Business, Server Tools and online services divisions) and Window is just one of them, and the window division accounts for 33% of their last quarter revenue and has not made a loss in years, Microsoft profits rose 13.3% last quarter, with a revenue of 20.5 billion dollars, with profits across the board including from the Entertainment Division which include xBox, Zune, Windows Phone and others. The Entertainment Division saw a revenue of 2.53 billion dollar last quarter, despite Windows Phones and Zune with is now Xbox Music, but it’s still a profitable division.

    Sony can only dream to be in such a financial position, and will never be. Because unlike Microsoft which is somewhat of a monopoly in the PC, Business, Enterprise and Server Tools businesses, Sony is faced by serious competition in all markets they are in.

    Comparing Sony to Microsoft is very wrong, two different companies with only gaming in common.

    #34 2 years ago
  35. orakaa

    @ 31: Would it be possible for you to answer without insulting people? Thank you :)

    I was answering Erth about his comment on Windows sales, which are only artificially boosted because of the late, massive migration from XP to Windows 7 in companies, including mine as we speak (which include thousands of computers for instance)… as Microsoft is stopping XP support next year. Their profit would much be lower than it is now without this factor taken into consideration and without their monopoly on PC OS.

    And PROFIT is different from gross income. So I’m not talking about their position, but rather than how they are evolving from where they are.
    They invested way more than 1 billion on Windows 8 marketing campaign, for no return on investment as the sales were much lower than expected. Wait for next year financial revenues from them and you’ll see what I’m underlying here.

    PC sales are dropping over 20% while tablets and smartphones sales are massively raising. Windows is NOT part of this, so YES, they are loosing market shares, which is why they are massively investing/loosing money on Surface/Windows RT and implemented Modern UI on Windows 8, with under-performing results.

    #35 2 years ago
  36. Erthazus

    @34, Of course. But they won’t give it to someone else before Half-Life 3 is made or some game that will show it’s capabilities.
    + Source engine 1 is almost open-source because it is old. Valve won’t give them Next Gen source engine or anyone else for now.

    So it makes sense for the studio that is not talented enough. We will see new FPS game on the engine that is so old that is used for DOTA games these days.

    Sony and Nintendo fans should be happy if this game only comes to MS systems. The First person shooter is played out, boring, not creative, lacks innovation, and all play the same anyways.

    Seriously the PS4 and Xbox 720 are going to each host like a million shooters next generation. Who gives a crap if one of those a million shooters is exclusive the Xbox brand? They all play the same. Hold the L Trigger to aim. Pull the right trigger to shoot. Rinse and repeat.

    #1: “Dammit, I was really looking forward to Respawn’s game but a multiplayer focused, always-online title? Forget it. PS4 or Xbox or PC. Doesn’t matter which system.”

    ^ This. I wasn’t exactly looking forward since I didn’t know what it would be. But damn those words “multiplayer focused, always-online title?” seriously take out any hope I had for this to be on my radar. Same thing with Bungie’s new IP Defiance, oOps sorry I mean Destiny. Games designed around the monetization principle just don’t float my boat.

    You should ALL have seen this coming.

    I’m keen to see what they come up with, even if I’ve no time for online shooters these days.

    Bold, strong move from MS. These guys made the best shooters of this generation.

    You’re an idiot. It’s an multiplayer only game. You can’t play unless it’s online by default.

    Hehehe, yes, windows 8 is a failure, sorta, but it’s biggest competitor is?…Fucking windows 7…Next down the line? Oh look at all the people still using Win XP! Their biggest business has always been “Office” anyway, and last time I checked damn near every business on the planet was still using that shit.

    Microsoft and Sony are BOTH losing money in their entertainment divisions but Microsoft’s software backbone has fared much better than Sony’s hardware backbone(MOAR TV’s). None of that matters anyway since their entertainment divisions are equally shitty. M$ is dumping money on exclusives with NO EVIDENCE that this actually improves their market share(this is what your stupid LIVE subs pay for BTW)

    I really doubt one more tired, played out, multiplayer FPS exclusive is gonna budge this console war one fucking inch. It’s gonna come down to pure brand loyalty and for those not already dedicated to one cult or the other, PRICE. Might I suggest you purchase a graphics card with your money instead, I hear the AMD ones are going to be getting some very good optimizations for the next decade.

    @31 MS’ diversification is not the reason MS is in better financial shape. If diversification was key to profit, Sony would dwarf MS. You think Sony is all about consumer electronics? You’re the clueless one. Come back when you’ve learned about the subject on which you appear to think you speak so authoritatively.

    Here are some starters:

    It is big in industrial chemicals and batteries; it has multiple financial services companies including several commercial banks and personal insurance companies and a credit card business; it has a big property portfolio (still, after it made recent divestments); it is the second biggest music-producing company in the world, the third-largest film-producing group and one of the biggest music publishers in the world; it is big in semiconductor manufacture; it has a rapidly-growing interest in medical services.
