Respawn on Titanfall on Origin vs. Steam

There's an interview on GameInformer.com talking with Vince Zampella about Titanfall, Respawn's "mystery project," and more. They frame one question around their theory that the PC edition of the multiplayer mech shooter suffered from being on Origin rather than Steam. His response doesn't disagree, as he says: "At some point you look at it and you say is it even worth now this much later the effort to put it on Steam, when it would be a lot of work and kind of bifurcate the community? We would have loved for it to be on Steam from day one, but at some point it just doesn't make sense anymore and you start looking to the future and I think we should not make that same decision again."

What killed the game, in my mind (I have not played, but neither had anyone else when most wrote it off) was the lack of modes. True, 90% of online games are probably team deathmatch. And true, 90% or more of the hours spent in CoD were probably online vs single player. But people still want that value in order to spend the money in the first place. No single player was killer. And so many standard multiplayer features being delayed past release was also killer. People wanted all of that.

The game had 5 modes though. Other than SP what other modes were you looking for?

Sucks to be a one trick pony.
This. Despite all the yapping at release about it being the "FUTURE OF FPS", this game was one dimensional. It had a stompy robot gimmick....but it was about as complex as a matchlock.

I still think Titanfall had some of the best mixed gameplay mechanics under one title. It managed to do what Brink tried to do around fast fluid gunplay. The card boost system and having to pick a few before the map and choose when to use them brought nice variation. Using your mech as bait with the option to control it is genius. The game was/is a ton of fun, it just sucks that the community wasn't there and/because it's on Origin.
