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, along with unnecessary artificial "progression" are the two main things that make me give nearly all new FPS's a pass. Character/account progression has no legitimate place in competitive PvP games, and hinders them far more than it 'helps'. And lack of dedicated servers is just a recipe for frustration and irritation. No, I don't want some stupid matchmaker algorithm deciding where I play and who I play against.

These things far more than the game being only on Origin were why I never gave Titanfall a second glance.
