Bluepoint Games are the developers for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall. So far the Xbox 360 version hasn’t been a part of any launch events such as Titanfall’s SXSW event and we haven’t seen any in game trailers either. The launch date is closing in and we have yet to see the Xbox 360 version of the game, which is a concern for many. There are still a lot of people who haven’t moved on to the Next-Gen consoles and are concerned whether the 360 version will be any good or not compared to the Xbox One version.
Yusuf Mehdi, the Xbox Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, tells us that the 360 version of the title is shaping up quite well. He explained that they can’t just completely disregard the 360 version, because of the Xbox 360’s global reach and that the current-gen console is available in more markets then the next-gen console.
In an interview with Polygon, Mehdi said, “I think we struck the right balance — it was Respawn, really, and the developer who struck the balance — which is, it will play great on Xbox 360. Believe me, we are thrilled about it. Xbox 360 is in, obviously, all the markets including the top 13 with Xbox One; we’re in 48-plus markets for [Xbox 360]. For many markets, that will be the game. So, we’ve worked together to have that be a first-class experience.”
“At the same time, on Xbox One you can get some of those extra features that set it apart, and there will be people who want to do that, and there will be enough encouragement to go — but it will be a great experience on Xbox 360,” Mehdi added.
Originally, the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall was suppose to come out with the Xbox One and the PC version of the game on the 11th of March but the release date for the 360 version was delayed and the release date is now, March 25th. EA Executive Vice President Patrick Söderlund said the launch date was moved back so that Bluepoint could have “the time they need to put the finishing touches on the current-gen version of the game”
It’s good to see that Microsoft hasn’t completely disregarded the current-gen or last-gen console. The game might not be the same but it is still going to be amazing. The Xbox 360 version of the game comes out on the 25th of March.
