Thanks to a deal EA has done with Microsoft, Titanfall will never come to PlayStation 4 – although any sequels might.

During a conference call with investors, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said the game would be an Xbox and PC exclusive.

"In the case of Titanfall, it's brand new, and it's exclusive only — through the life of the title — for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC," said Jorgensen.

Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella said via Twitter that his studio had only just found out about the deal, but that his studio would make other games for PlayStation 4.

Titanfall is due out on March 13, 2014 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
