Titanfall DLC and Updates to Hit Xbox 360 Only After Xbox One & PC

Titanfall DLC and Updates to Hit Xbox 360 Only After Xbox One & PC

Titanfall Explode

Titanfall's Expedition DLC will hit the PC and Xbox One later this month, but Xbox 360 will have to wait for the content, along with other updates.

Not only did Xbox 360 players have to wait a little longer for Titanfall to make its way to the last-gen platform, it seems this will be the norm for DLC and updates moving forward, as well. In a post on the official Titanfall site, it states that Xbox 360 Titanfall developer Bluepoint Games will continue its partnership with Respawn by being the studio to bring updates and DLCs to the shooter for Xbox 360 users. However, the post also reveals and explains that updates and expansions will only be implemented on the Xbox 360 version once the PC and Xbox One gets them first.

Updates for the Xbox 360 will naturally follow behind similar updates for the PC and Xbox One. This timing difference is due to the same reasons that more time was needed to finish Titanfall or the Xbox 360. Respawn must first finish their additions and improvements for the Xbox One and PC, and afterwards Bluepoint can then grab the latest and update the Xbox 360 version. We're working with Respawn and Bluepoint to streamline the process and close the gap, allowing Xbox 360 updates to be published as closely as possible to Respawn's updates.

According to the post, At the moment, Bluepoint "is bringing over changes included in the Xbox One's Content Update 2 while also working on the Expedition DLC. We asked them to split the CU2 into two parts, which includes the update to the Gooser challenge that recently went live, with the rest of the changes becoming available soon."

The first DLC for Titanfall named Expedition, will make its way to Xbox One and PC later this month, with the Xbox 360 version getting it in June.

You would think they'd have had it written somewhere that their systems, and their systems alone would have gotten time exclusive DLC...than again this isn't really an exclusive in the first place.

So this is a map pack I gather?

Microsoft did such a good job convincing people the game was an Xbox One exclusive that very few people bought it on 360 (I know a few that didn't even know it was out on 360 at all). Wasn't 80% of COD: Ghost's sales on last-gen system?

They probably figured 360 users either are used to waiting, or the sales weren't strong enough to prioritize it.

$15 for two maps, such a steal!

OT: When you say "having to wait for Respawn", you actually mean "we got paid to push back DLC".

because only a complete moron of a studio wouldn't have a tandem development of DLC's.

"Do you want the right to pay for DLC earlier? Then fork over the price of an XBONE. Otherwise, you'll have to wait an undisclosed amount of time before being able to give us your money."

That's what I'm reading here.

Console gamers will finally feel what we pc gamers have to feel while waiting for something, when it has allready been out for a different (unjustifiably prioritized) system

Actually, TEN dollars for THREE maps (or the season pass for $25). Czech your facts.

OT: This makes sense. Xbone and PC Titanfall operate in almost the same way with a few minor differnces in 360 performance.
It's understandable that optimizing DLC for the 360 would be different and therefore take more time.

That was Kalezian, not me. I was quoting his post. I never said anything about how much it would cost, or what was being offered. Go back and Czech for yourself.

Maybe if we are lucky us 360 owners will get a less buggy release. A different studio is behind the 360 version so this is understandable.

My question is are these maps both Campaign and Classic or just Classic?
