Is Titanfall 2 Stomping onto PS4 in the Near Future?

It's a secret

Pseudo Xbox One exclusive Titanfall is a strange game. The first-person shooter – created by ex-Call of Duty makers Respawn Entertainment – was championed as the second coming of your chosen religious prophet for an outrageously long time, and then it just disappeared in the blink of an eye.
