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."

This game didn't sell anywhere near what the publisher expected on any platform. I think that speaks to the game's failings more than any one thing you can list on the PC platform specifically. I really don't think it had anything to do with Origin. Had it been a good game, generally speaking, people would have bought it regardless of Origin. PC gamers talk tough but ultimately they cave if a game is good enough. This was a new IP which means it had to really impress out of the gate and it just didn't. I agree with other folks that have pointed out the lack of single player as a major killer. On the PC specifically the game would have benefited from many of the things that other people have mentioned but the game failed as whole because it just wasn't that great of a game. Not at launch anyway. If some folks were able to enjoy it, good for them....but this fell well below everybody's expectations from a sales point of view.
