From the same company trying to sell you a $130 version of Star Wars Outlaws.

The Crew was Ubisoft's open-world racing game that was pulled from sale back in December 2023. As of March 31, 2024, Ubisoft shut down the online servers for The Crew. This effectively made the game unplayable across all platforms, including: PC,...

Tim Sweeney Called Valve 'Assholes' in Email to Gabe Newell, Valve COO Says 'You Mad Bro?'

Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week. To quickly get you up to speed: Wolfire claims that Valve uses its position with Steam to control game prices and muscle out competition. Though the initial lawsuit against Valve was dismissed, Wolfire amended their suit in May 2022 and the legal battle was back on.

It may have taken almost two years, but we are now starting to see some of the documents that...

  • 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,...

  • New Update Reduces Forza Motorsport Install Size by 29GB

    New Update Reduces Forza Motorsport Install Size by 29GB

    This is a massive sized reduction.

    Through what I can only assume is magic, the latest update for Forza Motorsport reduces the install size by up to 29GB. Specifically, the release of Update 7 reduces the total file size by 25GB on Xbox Series X|S and by 29GB on PC. This is a size reduction on about 15-20% depending on which platform you play on.

    Developer Turn 10 says that due to the nature of this new optimization, today's Update 7 will be "slightly larger"...
