After an early leak of Game Informer spoiled the surprised, Titanfall was confirmed today by Electronic Arts and shown at Microsoft's press conference. The game, coming from former Call of Duty devs at Respawn Entertainment, will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC in 2014.
From the press release:
The universe of Titanfall juxtaposes small vs. giant, natural vs. industrial and man vs. machine. The game drops players into a conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia as elite Pilots. With the ability to shift back and forth between pilot and Titan, players will have the freedom to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation.
"In addition to infusing the multiplayer experience with cinematic flavor, we've been rethinking fundamental combat and movement in the genre," said Titanfall game director Steve Fukuda. "Titanfall is unique in the way that it places equal emphasis on two drastically different and new ways to move and fight in a first-person shooter. The intersection of the two is a big part of what give Titanfall its iconic identity."
As mentioned previously, the Xbox 360 version is being developed by an external developer with help from Respawn.
