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."

I can't speak for anyone else, but the only reason I ever used Origin was because the final game, in a trilogy I had become invested in, was exclusive to Origin.

After I finished ME3 and all DLC content, I only played for the multiplayer aspect. When I grew tired of that, I uninstalled the game and Origin. I currently have no plans to buy anything exclusive to EA's service again, unless they buy up another developer that is making titles that I like.

The funny thing is that I really don't care about Origin that much, but I refuse to go out of my way to help EA set up a service to compete with Steam. Everything EA touches turns to shit at some point, this is irrefutable based on their prior evidence of destroying games they have control over.
