Respawn Entertainment's recently released multiplayer shooter Titanfall is one of 2014's first major games, but how many copies is it going to sell? In a new interview, Microsoft marketing executive Yusuf Mehdi declined to give an estimate, but made it very clear that the company expects big things from Titanfall.

"We're making a big bet that Titanfall is going to be a blockbuster launch for Xbox," Mehdi told Reuters. "We don't have a sales forecast for the game to share, but we expect it to be big for us."

Titanfall is available today for Xbox One and PC, and comes to Xbox 360 on March 25. Of course, it's never coming to PlayStation or Nintendo platforms, so its potential reach is diminished. Still, with some 80 million Xbox 360s, (at least) 3 million Xbox Ones, and countless PCs sold to date, Titanfall certainly has an audience.

Microsoft previously labeled Titanfall a "game-changer" that would no doubt help sell Xbox Ones. For more on Titanfall, check out GameSpot's review.
