Ubisoft Pulls Licenses for The Crew, Makes the Game Completely Inaccessible to Buyers

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

From announcing a $130 edition of Star Wars Outlaws to pulling game licenses from those that bought The Crew, Ubisoft sure is on a roll this week.

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...

No, Starfield and Indiana Jones are not going multi-platform any time soon.

Gears of War? Halo?! No, no, no, and no. Though Spencer did not specify what those four titles ...

  • The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope New Release Date Set for Halloween

    The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope New Release Date Set for Halloween

    Well, it's just one day off of a Halloween release, but still.

    The last we heard about The Dark Pictures Anthology: LIttle Hope was that the game was being delayed. We did not have a firm release date told to us at the time, but that seems to be rectified with today's announcement. That announcement says that The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope will be released on October 30, which is just in time for Halloween.

    At release, the game will support single player, online...

  • Details Dished on WWE 2K Battlegrounds

    Details Dished on WWE 2K Battlegrounds

    Details reveal game modes, pricing, and gameplay elements.

    In April, we first brought you word that 2K was doing away with this year's annual iteration of the woefully broken and busted WWE 2K franchise. This year, the studio has instead opted for a more arcadey approach to the genre with WWE 2K Battlegrounds. While this may not be what fans of the more sim focused series necessarily wanted, it is a good opportunity for the yearly franchise to take a break and re-tool itself for 2021....

    Mafia: Definitive Edition Delayed Until Late September

    Gameplay reveal coming July 22.

    Given that we have not yet seen any sort of gameplay for Mafia: Definitive Edition, it should not come as any surprise that the game has been delayed. The lack of gameplay was especially concerning as the game was originally slated to be released on August 28. It was just revealed to be pushed back to a September 25 release instead. The reason? Yep, it's our old pal COVID-19 showing up again.

    The announcement of the delay comes alongside...

    Halo 3 Hits PC on July 14

    Believe.

    Depending on when you read this, Halo 3 on PC will either be coming out shortly or will already be released. One week from today, on July 14th, Halo 3 will be added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC.

    Today's announcement comes after a series of test flights for the game. These tests are essentially beta events that pull in data to ensure that the public launch of the game sucks as little butt as possible. It seems as though 343 Industries is satisfied...

    A new part of the Summer Game Fest.

    Xbox announced today that they will host another entry in Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest. I do not know how many other entries there have been thus in the Summer Game Fest because honestly, who actually cares.

  • Fable Trademark Renewed

    Fable Trademark Renewed

    Indicative of nothing.

    Microsoft has renewed the trademark for Fable. This comes shortly after the company kind of downplayed the significance of a Fable placeholder Twitter account.

    The fact that Microsoft has renewed the Fable trademark signifies literally nothing. However, this is also something that I know a number of people will be interested in knowing. Companies renew trademarks all the time. For instance, Nintendo held on to the Eternal Darkness trademark for God...

    Ubisoft Announces New Battle Royale Game Hyper Scape

    Stop me if you've heard this one before...

    100 players enter, but only one will be crowned the winner. Such is the idea behind a genre known as "battle royale." Ubisoft must have heard about how hot this genre was and decided to make their own entry just a couple of years from when the battle royale genre was at its most fevered pitch.

    Their new game is called Hyper Scape and it is a 100-player battle royale game set in a sci-fi urban setting. Unlike many other...
