Titanfall is the first big Xbox One exclusive, and by association, the most important game in years. It could be the killer app that convinces people to buy an Xbox over a PlayStation. It's widely believed that's because Microsoft paid top dollar to its formerly struggling developer, Respawn Entertainment, to ensure the hotly anticipated game would be a Microsoft exclusive. But today, Respawn studio head Vince Zampella says the company may also bring the game to the Mac.

Though it was no secret that the game would appear on personal computers — two days ago, it arrived on Windows PCs alongside Xbox One — we assumed that Windows PC was simply one of three Microsoft platforms for the game. Now, though, Zampella says that the studio's in talks with Aspyr Media — famous for porting PC games to Mac — to bring Titanfall to OS X.
Before Mac users celebrate, though, they should know that there's likely to be a sizable delay. Though Asypr managed to release a port of Bioshock Infinite only four months after the original game debuted, ports have generally taken much longer. For example, Call of Duty: Black Ops didn't arrive on Mac for nearly two years after its original debut in 2010.
Zampella had previously hinted that future games in the series might come to other platforms.
