The popular first-person shooter Titanfall should eventually reach the Mac, says one of the game's creators, Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella. In a Wednesday Twitter post Zampella revealed that Respawn is in talks with Aspyr, a publisher well known for porting Windows games to the Mac. Titanfall is currently only available for Windows and the Xbox One; an Xbox 360 version is due soon as well.

The game is a multiplayer title in which people assume control of a futuristic soldier in six-on-six battles. After racking up enough score, a player earns the right to call down a titan -- a mech suit that towers above ground troops and even has some independent AI functions, for instance allowing it to guard a chokepoint while the player wanders elsewhere. To fight back infantry have access to anti-titan weapons, parkour-style maneuvers, and the ability to sabotage a titan by leaping onto its chassis.

Titanfall proved so popular when it launched earlier this week that it may have contributed to an Xbox Live outage.

Behold: Fall of the Titans (star. Sam Worthngton)

He needs to voiceover this game.

Funny how PS4 is left out of this game but not the Mac.

coffeetime, it's a Microsoft exclusive title. You won't be seeing it on Playstation. Curious though that they are releasing it for the Mac; probably easy(ier) since it's based on the Source engine.
