Titanfall producer Drew McCoy is a breath of fresh air in an industry that's slowly becoming more focused on the money than entertainment. He hasn't looked at the sales figures to know if the recently released shooter is making a profit, nor does he really care.
Some might have worried that EA might try to have encouraged microtransactions to be implemented into Titanfall. That didn't happen, much to everyone's relief. The developers even looked the other way if regarding players who managed to acquire Titanfall prior to launch, maybe because they were trying to sneak in as well.
McCoy's interview with GameSpot at PAX East sheds some light on this behavior from Respawn Entertainment:
"I don't know if it's making a profit, I don't know if it's meeting sales expectations. I don't really care... I care that I worked on a game that I can sit down and enjoy playing. The fact that people enjoy it and it has made enough that we [get to] continue supporting it as a studio, that's to me a success. We make games because we love them and we want other people to play them with us."
It's refreshing to see Respawn Entertainment is remaining focused on game development and not letting Titanfall's success get to their heads. Let's hope they don't get blinded in the future.
