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).

PSA: Epic Mega Sale Underway Until June 13

Sale includes free games every week and pre-order discounts.

The Epic Games Store just kicked off its own multi-week long sale today. This sale finds discounts of up to 75% off of some titles. It also includes discounts on pre-orders for games like John Wick Hex, Borderlands 3, or Control. Just to name a few.

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. ...

  • Ubisoft Delays Pirate Themed 'Skull & Bones' Until Mid-2020

    Ubisoft Delays Pirate Themed 'Skull & Bones' Until Mid-2020

    Open world naval pirate game to skip E3 2019.

    Ubisoft delivered some sad news today. Their open world pirate themed naval combat game, Skull & Bones, has been delayed until at least mid-2020. The team working on the game even delivered word today that they would be skipping E3 2019.

    Skull & Bones was initially revealed way back at E3 2017. More footage was revealed at E3 2018 and it was still looking pretty good. Last year came the first delay which pushed it into the 2019-2020 fiscal year. Today, that date has been pushed back yet again to the 2020-2021 fiscal...

  • New 'Safe Haven' Cinematic for World of Warcraft

    New 'Safe Haven' Cinematic for World of Warcraft

    Hey look, it's Thrall!

    Blizzard released a new cinematic video today for World of Warcraft. We see Varok Saurfang paying a visit to an old leader of the Horde. This particular cinematic is for the Rise of Azshara content update (8.2) for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. This new content update includes features like equipment slots on mounts, new zones (Nazjatar & Mechagon), a new raid (Azshara's Eternal Palace), and more.

    Now, can someone explain to me why Blizzard just hasn't made their own full-length film yet? Because it seems like it's a thing that totally...

  • 'DOTA Underlords' Trademarked by Valve

    'DOTA Underlords' Trademarked by Valve

    It's probably DOTA Auto Chess.

    Valve was given a new trademark this week. This trademark is for an upcoming "computer game" called DOTA Underlords. Literally nothing else is known about this title. There is speculation that it may be the name of Valve's standalone release of DOTA Auto Chess, but that's as much of a guess as anything else.

    For all we know, it could be a VR title, something to do with Artifact, or something completely unexpected....

    Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey Gameplay Footage and Epic Exclusive Details

    Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick says exclusives "will be rare."

    Another Take-Two title is confirmed to be a timed exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Previously, the Take-Two Private Division label published title, The Outer Worlds, is a one year timed exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Yes, it's also out on the same day to the Microsoft Store because Obsidian is now owned by MS and there are many business issues at work. After that point, it will be sold on Steam and other digital storefronts.

    Another Take-Two published title that goes by the name of Borderlands...

  • First Raid Added to The Division 2

    First Raid Added to The Division 2

    Get ready for "Operation Dark Hours."

    Today, Ubisoft released the "Operation Dark Hours" update for Tom Clancy's The Division 2. This update will also include the first 8-player raid for the game, which just happens to be given the same name as the name of the update. Must just be one big coincidence.

    The raid itself doesn't unlock until May 16 at 12PM (ET). The update itself is live now.

    Today's update for the game also includes the new "Classified Assignments" feature. These are exclusive missions for those that own the Year...

  • New Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft Creative Director (Update: Only a 'joke')

    That sure is one way to announce a game, I suppose.

    Update: Ubisoft issued a statement after this apparent earlier "confirmation" by Gerighty.

    Ah, so it was a "joke." Ha...

    ... ha?

    If you still somehow doubt it, Jason Schreier also confirmed that it was just a joke.

    Original: Julian Gerighty is a Creative Director at Ubisoft that has helped to create and bring games like The Division 2 and the Splinter Cell games to the world. He also just, uh, kind of announced that they're working on a new Splinter...

    Super Mario Maker 2 Direct Announced for May 15

    Get ready for new info on Super Mario Maker 2.

    Nintendo announced that they will hold a new "Direct" stream tomorrow, May 15 at 3PM (PT).

    Given that this is specifically being called a "Super Mario Maker 2 Direct" I would assume this will focus only on Super Mario Maker 2. I may or may not be Nostradamus. Watch it on YouTube or via the embed below. ...

  • World of Warcraft Classic Release Date Set for August 27

    World of Warcraft Classic Release Date Set for August 27

    Time to bust out those rose tinted glasses.

    Blizzard officially announced today that World of Warcraft Classic will be released this year. The re-release of the classic game is based off of the 1.12.0 version of the game that originally came out in late 2006. Though the release of Classic will include some "modern conveniences," it will largely still be the old WoW that you know and remember loving.

    The release date is set for August 27, but some players will get to partake of the old-timey action a bit earlier. Starting the week of May 22, some of those with...
