lol at all the people now downplaying this game

 

last week: It won't be exclusive for long and it'll be better on our system!

now: It's just a generic game anyway, you can keep it!

You should've expected it, nothing that hasn't happened before.

The game is published by EA. MS would need to pay a very very very big truckload of money for it to not be avalaible on Origin. Ms probably already paid a truckload for it to be console exclusive. I don't even want to think how much it would cost to prevent EA from selling their own published game on their own Origin store.

 

From past experiences I have a hunch it would never happen and you'd see EA cancel a 360/X1 version faster than giving up on an Origin version. It'd never come to that of course, MS would yield and accept it as a multiplatform title than Sony having another selling point over them.

 

Either way, it's likely this game would have sold better on X1 even if it weren't a timed exclusive franchise. It could be likened to Mass Effect in many ways and if MS were smart, they could ask/pay for some sort of "progressive save" when TitanFall 2 came out to keep people buying the X1 version. I'm sure they'll settle for a typical DLC deal instead ala CoD.
