Developer Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming first-person shooter Titanfall does not permit players on one platform to play with those on another.

Titanfall is due out in 2014 for PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Respawn and publisher Electronic Arts have no plans to bring the futuristic competitive-multiplayer title to any of Sony’s consoles. That seemed to leave open a possibility for cross-platform play between at least the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the game.

But this isn’t the case.

“We will be able to offer dedicated servers on Xbox 360,” Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe told Videogamer.com in an interview. “Obviously, Xbox 360 players are not going to be playing with Xbox One players — they’re not going to be playing with PC — those will be separated groups.”

Titanfall puts players into the role of a future soldier who can double jump and run on walls. Players can also call in a mech unit that changes the pace of play. Respawn comprises many former Call of Duty developers, and it’s easy to see that lineage in Titanfall even while its gameplay is something very different.
