Titanfall - Steam or Origin?
So I just saw gameplay of Titanfall by Respawn entertainment. First of all, I must say I'm quite amazed that it's actually using the Source engine developed by Valve.

However, I can easily see a big conflict here. The game is published by EA but uses the Source engine developed by Valve. Will the game be on Steam (because of the fact the game uses Valve's Source engine) or will the game be on Origin (because of the fact that EA's the publisher) or will they be on both and if so, will Steam and Origin players be able to play together?

EDIT: Forgot to mention that TitanFall will be available on PC so the question is technically valid.

It can go any of those ways. Just because it uses the Source engine doesn't mean they have to use Steam. EA as the Publisher has more of a say in it then Valve does. All Valve did is lease the engine.

We will just have to wait and see.

It would depend entirely on the agreement between the two companies. But most probably, would be Origin. =)

Looks like it is an XBox One exclusive. Didn't say if it was a timed exclusive or not.

Other sites (4 day old story) say it will be on the PC too, but we will have to see about that as well.

Looks interesting though. Hope it does come out on the PC.

Don't worry, the developer tweeted that it will also come to 360 and PC.

Awesome! Now I have a shooter to look forward too!...but of course, I'll probably wait and see how the reviews come in first before purchase. =D

Ohh good news to us then! I would love to try the game out. =)

Too bad the articles didn't say if it'll be on Steam or Origin though. I personally hope it'll be on Steam because of convenience. If anyone sent an email to the developers and know the answer, please share! :D

Well technically EA wasn't the publisher it was still Valve BUT EA was the RETAIL DISTRIBUTOR through the EA Partners program.
