Titanfall for Mac? Respawn says they're talking to Aspyr
Titanfall is one of the hottest new games of the year. Right now it's an exclusive for Microsoft platforms — Windows, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. But if the developer has its way, Titanfall might be headed to the Mac, too.
Titanfall is a first person shooter developed by Respawn Entertainment. Emphasizing small-scale multiplayer combat, the game's hook is the ability to pilot titans — mech-style walkers, each with unique abilities.
Vince Zampella is the CEO of Respawn, and he maintains an account on Twitter. Responding to a tweet about the possibility of a Mac version, Zampella said:
@TZB17 We are talking to Aspyr, they should do it— Vince Zampella (@VinceZampella) March 13, 2014
Aspyr, for the uninitiated, is a popular publisher of Mac games. Aspyr typically negotiates with PC and console game publishers to license a Macintosh version of a game, which they then develop and publish themselves. Aspyr's Mac conversions are available through the Mac App Store and other download services.
I checked with Aspyr to get the details, and they're mum for the moment.
"We don’t have a comment at this time but Titanfall is an awesome game! We’re happy to see Respawn have so much success and would love to work with EA again," said Elizabeth Howard, Aspyr VP of Publishing.
So, no hard details for the moment, but keep your eyes peeled. Titanfall is a really cool game and it'd be great to see it headed to the Mac.
