Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer at Microsoft, shares his excitement for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall at SXSW’s launch event yesterday.
“I think we struck the right balance — it was Respawn, really, and the developer who struck the balance — which is, it will play great on Xbox 360. Believe me, we are thrilled about it,” Yusuf Mehdi told Polygon.
“Xbox 360 is in, obviously, all the markets including the top 13 with Xbox One; we’re in 48-plus markets for [Xbox 360]. For many markets, that will be the game. So, we’ve worked together to have that be a first-class experience.
“At the same time, on Xbox One you can get some of those extra features that set it apart, and there will be people who want to do that, and there will be enough encouragement to go — but it will be a great experience on Xbox 360,” concluded Mehdi.
Titanfall for Xbox 360 is being developed by Bluepoint Games. The game was delayed last month, and it will release on March 25th in North America, March 28th in Europe.
