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."

bing on origin didn't kill this game, the fact that no one bought/played it on pc after the first 2 weeks killed the game. any pc game that still uses console lobbies rarely does well. the new CoD is the same story, however a lot worse.

they just need a server browser for pc, and they'd be fine. if for some reason being on origin was holding that back, while being on steam would have enabled a server browser, then i'd agree with this. however i think that's highly unlikely.

i think that the underbelly of this story is that it just plain didn't sell well on PC at all. hence why they're blaming it on not being sold at wal-mart.
