Call of Duty Shakeup - Call of Duty 2020 is Another Black Ops and Is Modern Warfare 4 Going Free-to-Play?

Reports include talk of arguments between Sledgehammer and Raven.

There are reported some massive changes happening behind the scenes of the Call of Duty franchise. According to a new report from Jason Schreier of Kotaku, Call of Duty 2020 is no longer being developed by Sledgehammer and Raven. It will instead be handled by Treyarch and it will be another entry in the Black Ops saga.

This is the first major change in the development cycle of the Call of Duty franchise since 2012. Since then, the Call of Duty games have cycled between three lead studios. Those studios...
 

Bungie Brings Back the Nerf Gun on Fan-Favorite Destiny 2 Weapons

Old Bungie is back.

Around the release of the Curse of Osiris update for Destiny 2, Bungie had vowed to take a drastically different approach to how they handle community favored weapons in the game. Old Bungie would have nerfed those weapons into the ground without a second thought.

But new Bungie? New Bungie said that they wanted to instead buff up other weapons to make them more attractive choices. This was a part of their "Go Fast Update" initiative. Specifically, here is what they said in all capital letters for some weird reason (via Game Rant).

Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

Incredible from start to finish.

Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

There are many more review "buzz words" I could use to describe A Plague Tale, but I will spare you from...
 

New Final Fantasy VII Remake Teaser

Just watch it.

A new teaser trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake was finally shown off today. It's the first one shown off in, I think, over a year. It's not much but maybe it'll be enough until we hear and see more this June. ...

    System Shock 3 GDC Teaser


    As part of the Unity keynote at GDC 2019, a new teaser trailer for System Shock 3 was shown off. I suppose that also confirms that System Shock 3 is being built on Unity. I think that was already known prior to this? Perhaps not.

    The game is currently in development from OtherSide Entertainment. A release date for the horror title is not yet known. ...

  • Call of Duty: Mobile Announced

    Call of Duty: Mobile Announced


    Call of Duty: Mobile was announced today. Take your favorite maps, modes, and characters with you in the palm of your hand from across the various Call of Duty stories. The game is being developed by Tencent's studio, Timi. It's coming for both Android and iOS and will also include multiple game modes when released.

    It will be published by Activision, obviously. It will be a free-to-play title at release. I'm assuming that the game will contain in-app purchases. I would be absolutely shocked if it didn't.

    If you already know you're on board with this, you can...

  • Nvidia Announces Real-time Ray Tracing for Older GTX Cards

    Nvidia Announces Real-time Ray Tracing for Older GTX Cards


    Nvidia just announced today that they are bringing real-time ray tracing to their GTX lineup of cards. This support will begin with a driver update currently slated for some time in April.

    Get ready to have your framerates destroyed. Think about it this way: Nvidia's RTX cards have special hardware that is dedicated to handling the load of real-time ray tracing. Even with this special hardware, enabling real-time ray tracing still destroys framerates on these new cards.

    Now they're going to add support for it on to their older cards? It will certainly make your...

  • Half-Life 3 Again Teased by Potentially Fake Email from Valve's Gabe Newell

    Half-Life 3 Again Teased by Potentially Fake Email from Valve's Gabe Newell


    It is *checks non-existent watch* now three months into 2019, which means it's about that time again for another Half-Life 3 rumor. This one comes directly from Valve's Gabe Newell himself!

    Well, maybe.

    Honestly, it's probably fake but I know what pulls people in to the site and this is certainly going to do it for a little bit.

    All of this begins with the latest video from "Valve News Network (VNN)," a YouTube channel that never, ever, ever (heavily implied sarcasm here) exaggerates or simply pulls things out of their ass. Get them clicks!...

  • Bethesda Confirms They Will be Have an E3 2019 Conference

    Bethesda Confirms They Will be Have an E3 2019 Conference

    In a year in which both Sony and EA have bowed out of their annual E3 conferences, it's perhaps reassuring to know that some traditions are still going strong. Bethesda confirmed today that they will be at E3 2019 and will indeed hold their annual E3 Showcase conference.

    The studio announced that the 5th Annual Bethesda E3 Showcase will begin on Sunday, June 9 at 5:30PM (PT). They claim it's going to be "a hell of a night" and then goes on to talk about how they'll have an in-depth look at DOOM Eternal. Because "hell of a night" and Doom. Get it? GET IT?!

  • The Culling Servers Shutting Down in May

    The Culling Servers Shutting Down in May


    If you are one of the 32 players currently still playing The Culling on PC, you may be sad to hear that the game's servers will be shutting down on May 15. Of course, this also means that the servers for the Xbox One version are going away and I'm guessing that there are maybe a few more players on that platform? Who knows anymore. The game is pretty dead either way.

    In case you forgot, Xaviant had gone back to The Culling after developing, releasing, and then pulling The Culling 2 after being on sale for just 8 days from July 10-18, 2018. Xaviant had returned back to the...
