Titanfall, the multiplayer first-person shooter developed by Respawn Entertainment exclusively for Windows, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, may be coming to the Mac in the future.

In a post on Twitter last night (via Polygon), Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella said the company is in talks with Mac game publisher Aspyr over possibly bringing Titanfall to Mac. "We are talking to Aspyr," he told a fan asking about a Mac version. "They should do it."


Back in February, Zampella expressed similar sentiments, telling fans that he would like to see a Mac version happen after the game launched for Xbox and PC on March 11.

In Titanfall, players fight in six-vs-six online multiplayer matches, controlling mech-style Titans and pilots to complete team-based objectives. The game won more than 60 awards when it was revealed at E3 and has received largely positive reviews.

Crafted by one of the co-creators of Call of Duty and other key developers behind the Call of Duty franchise, Titanfall is among the most highly anticipated games of 2014, having been shrouded in mystery for nearly three years. The visionaries at Respawn have drawn inspiration from their proven experience in first-person action gaming, and are building on that pedigree by taking a new approach to game design and creating an all-new universe with Titanfall.

Aspyr has published multiple major gaming titles for the Mac, including Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands 2, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, and more. There is no word on when a Mac version of Titanfall might be released.

Great news, in my opinion. Mac gaming has been getting better and better over the last few years, much of which is thanks to Aspyr doing such a good job. It's great that many major titles are coming out either at the same time as on PC or not that long after. For example, Tomb Raider (2013) and Metro: Last Light run surprisingly well, and The Elder Scrolls Online has a brilliant native client ready for launch.

I finally ditched Boot Camp last year and I haven't had any desire to reinstall Windows. All the major games I want to play are either on Mac or PlayStation, which is perfect for me.

I know Aspyr has some staff who hang around the forums, so if you see this, thanks a lot for being the driving force behind Mac gaming!

Have the PC version on Bootcamp, just waiting until tomorrow to be able to play (UK).

That said, if a Mac version comes, and by that I mean a proper job, not some half-assed port, then I would buy again, simply to support Mac gaming. There needs to be more of a push in this area.

Its like COD WM with robots.

Its bare bones but its a great starting point. I hope they keep patching new stuff in.

I am playing on XB1

I think it doesn't feel like Call of Duty. The pacing of the game feels different and refreshing.

Only if it releases for OS X as a native port though.

What ever happened to Apple gaming? Growing up using an Apple iie and then a IIgs, gaming was great. Tons of new games came out. Then in the 90’s on it seemed gaming died on Apple pc's. I think Jobs felt gaming was silly. I hope Tim Cook realizes its a great market to serve and makes gaming a priority. I want to see..gasp..Mac exclusive games (remember Marathon?), not crappy Cider ports.
Not that it has anything to do with it but...

Jobs left Apple in 1985 and came back in 1996. His influence wouldn't be part of the Mac lineup for at least a year or two after.

iOS gaming is booming, however.
