Titanfall won't be cross-platform, Xbox 360 port and Origin to blame

Titanfall launched today on Xbox One and PC. With PlayStation platforms forever excluded from this Microsoft-exclusive, some have been wondering: why is there no cross-platform play? The Xbox 360 version is one reason to blame.

"Mostly, the reason for that is with the 360 version--we’re not developing it," engineer Jon Shiring explained to Engadget. "We’re not going to be the ones doing the patching on 360. We could get ourselves into a very bad spot where if we patched all the servers, the 360 people couldn’t play for a while until Bluepoint (the studio behind the Xbox 360 version) applies the patch and gets it through cert."

Another bottleneck: Xbox Live and Origin. While the game may be Microsoft-exclusive, the PC version uses EA’s Origin service. That means Xbox Live players wouldn’t be able to see Origin players and vice versa. "It’s not one huge technical thing stopping us; it’s a lot of little ones," Shiring added.
