Star Wars Battlefront beta extended to October 13

Titanfall to get free-to-play version in Asia

Titanfall, the hit mech-based first-person shooter originally released for Xbox and PC last year, is probably the last title you'd expect to go free-to-play, but that's what's happening.

EA shutters SimCity’s dev studio Maxis Emeryville

Electronic Arts has closed down the development studio behind SimCity, Maxis Emeryville, according to a statement from the company.

Microsoft’s Titanfall exclusive was a single-game deal

Titanfall's sequel looks unlikely to be a Microsoft exclusive, with Respawn Entertainment chief Vince Zampella confirming that the studio's deal over the AAA title was for the first installment alone. Details on "Titanfall 2" are, unsurprisingly, scant at this stage, but according to Zampella the collaboration with Microsoft - which proved so valuable in leveraging the server-side processing of the Xbox One Live Cloud, among other things - doesn't mean the new game will be Xbox One and PC-only. Meanwhile, he poured cold water on rumors that the next Titanfall might be free-to-play.
