And Respawn responds to accusations of bribery

Don't go thinking that Respawn and EA (and Xbox 360 TitanFall devs Bluepoint) have forgotten about the old 360 in their rush to get the MP games out as a system seller for Xbox One. Nahhh.

That's not the case at all. Hang on to your Xbox 360 in fact because producer Drew McCoy has provided a really positive sounding update on how that version of the game is progressing:

"Oh, and for all the speculation going on about the 360 version. Its coming along really well, Bluepoint is full of phenomenally talented devs. We (being Respawn) have been pushing for them to have all the time they need to make it as good as possible, which means extra time for them to polish it up. Wed all like it to be day and date, but a better game a few weeks later is better than an unfinished one earlier."

Great news! But darkness has descended in the shape of criticisms that Respawn and EA are basically bunging the press incentives to big up the game. Wut?!

No fears! Drew has gone to NeoGaf to respond:

"Anyone who thinks we weren't living in the shadow of decade+ old established franchises at our reveal at E3 are as crazy as their conspiracy theories of anyone getting paid off. We've had to fight tooth and nail to have a game that anyone would even know existed, let alone be excited for and want to create coverage of. I get it that its not for everyone, but to say we're paying anyone off is downright insanity. Not to mention the height of insulting."

Fair play to him - although you have to note that nowhere in there does the phrase, "We're not" crop up. But we're nitpicking.
