Titanfall coming to Mac, says Respawn co-founder

updated 03:29 pm EDT, Thu March 13, 2014

Company in talks with Mac publisher Aspyr

The popular first-person shooter Titanfall should eventually reach the Mac, says one of the game's creators, Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella. In a Wednesday Twitter post Zampella revealed that Respawn is in talks with Aspyr, a publisher well known for porting Windows games to the Mac. Titanfall is currently only available for Windows and the Xbox One; an Xbox 360 version is due soon as well.

The game is a multiplayer title in which people assume control of a futuristic soldier in six-on-six battles. After racking up enough score, a player earns the right to call down a titan -- a mech suit that towers above ground troops and even has some independent AI functions, for instance allowing it to guard a chokepoint while the player wanders elsewhere. To fight back infantry have access to anti-titan weapons, parkour-style maneuvers, and the ability to sabotage a titan by leaping onto its chassis.

Titanfall proved so popular when it launched earlier this week that it may have contributed to an Xbox Live outage.

    Funny how PS4 is left out of this game but not the Mac.

    coffeetime, it's a Microsoft exclusive title. You won't be seeing it on Playstation. Curious though that they are releasing it for the Mac; probably easy(ier) since it's based on the Source engine.
