The Battlefield series seems to be doing fine as an Origin exclusive. If the game was good enough people would buy it on Origin.
Battlefield does well because it's Battlefield, a series that has been popular for over 10 years. Titanfall was a new IP with no established audience.
People like to say "Oh, but look at Dragon Age and Mass Effect and Need For Speed and Battlefield! They sell great on Origin so obviously being an Origin-exclusive has no impact on sales!" What they forget is that these are all well-established series and that only the newest entries are Origin-exclusive. The games that made the series popular? Not Origin-exclusive.
Being on Steam would have definitely increased Titanfall's player base.
