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...

  • Epic and Improbable Create $25 Million Fund to Move Devs Away from Unity

    Epic and Improbable Create $25 Million Fund to Move Devs Away from Unity


    It's been a real rollercoaster of a day for those using the Unity game engine. First, Unity cut off all future support for the online multiplayer platform called SpatialOS. Unity updated their terms of service back on December 4, 2018, and only clarified these changes to the SpatialOS development team at Improbable on January 10, 2019. These changes specifically prevent services like SpatialOS from working with Unity.

    SpatialOS is a widely used development toolkit allowed developers to more easily integrate online multiplayer experiences into their Unity developed games. In...

    Jump Force Open Beta Begins January 18


    Come January 18th, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will get to try out Jump Force in what Bandai Namco is calling an "open beta weekend." Be it a true beta or a "demo" is besides the point because what really matters is that you will finally get to test drive the fighting game that we have been passing along news about now for months.

    Here's how it's going to go down. First off, there will be four separate three-hour long sessions:



    Secondly? Well, that's kind of it. Just make sure you download the demo and you can play during...

    Bungie Ditches Activision, Acquires Rights to Destiny


    Moving forward, all future Destiny titles will be self-published by Bungie. I guess even Activision had to tap out after the latest Destiny 2 puzzle, eh?

    After eight years, Bungie and Activision are parting ways and with it so does Activision's control over the Destiny franchise. Bungie announced today that they are acquiring publishing rights to their popular shooter.

    Mere moments ago, Bungie made the announcement on their website in an aptly named news entry called "Our Destiny."



    Bungie continues on to say that they will...

    A new horror game called Dollhouse was announced today. It's in development by Creazn Studio and it's looking to be released this year for both the PC and PlayStation 4.

    The Division 2 Skipping Steam in Favor of Epic Games Store


    Ubisoft has made the decision to skip Steam for The Division 2, instead opting to sell it on the Epic Games Store. It won't be fully exclusive to the Epic Games Store on the PC as Ubisoft will also sell the game through their own storefront and game client, Uplay.

    Yesterday, a Destiny 2 update included a new head scratching puzzle. Solving this puzzle would open up the fourth and final Forge in the Black Armory DLC for everyone to hop into and enjoy. The problem is, Bungie maybe made the puzzles a bit too difficult as they have not yet been solved and the forge has not yet been unlocked.

    The puzzle centers around a new area called Niobe Labs. In this new area, players unlock various levels and encounters by solving puzzles. These puzzles largely center around shooting hidden symbols using special weapons in a correct order. The symbols...
