Something like that lol. I've heard it before I swear ....

Nope.

Respawn wanted to focus on a single console as they were a small team. In 2011 and 2012 microsoft was behind the scenes selling their vision for the xbox one. At the same time Sony was gathering info but not really sharing it. The vast majority of the industry thought that Microsoft was going to dominate this gen... until one year ago, tomorrow.

Respawn picked the xb1 because it seemed like the better choice. MS was pushing it. Sony was mum. The 360 dominated the US and western EU, which is where FPS are king. It was a no brainer.
