  • Dead Space 2 Remake Reportedly Cancelled (Update: EA Denies it was Ever in Development)

    We live in a cruel world.

    Update 2: Bloomberg's Jason Schreier chimes in with his own report. Schreier claims that the Dead Space franchise is "on ice once again." He says that EA Motive had "explored ideas for a new entry in early 2023, but none of those ideas were greenlit."

    Of those "new entry" ideas, the biggest hope was for an entirely new game, not a remake of Dead Space 2. This seems to suggest that Grubb heard word of a "new...

    Bungie Might be Working on Destiny 3

    More Destiny is coming, one way or another.

    A new report from Forbes says that Bungie is likely developing Destiny 3. The article, penned by Paul Tassi, is based off of a throwaway Reddit account and may not exactly be the most reliable of sources. Still, that throwaway account did reveal the Prismatic subclass months before Bungie announced it themselves yesterday.

    That original message from February says that Bungie "is working on a system called prism that will...

    Battlefield 2042 Development Comes to an End

    Once Season 7 is done, that'll be it for 2042.

    DICE and EA are ready to bring Battlefield 2042 development to an end. Once Season 7 concludes, that will be it. There will be no more Seasons and no more new content. Seven seasons really isn't too bad considering the game was initially only supposed to have four seasons of post-launch content.

    Season 7, which launched a month back, will be the end. Like, for real this time. The start of Season 7 already added a new map,...
