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,...

    Microsoft - Activision Blizzard Deal on Hold Until August

    This is the acquisition that never ends. Yes it goes on and on, my friend.

    As reported on several times last week, the only remaining hurdle standing in the way of Microsoft closing the deal on their Activision Blizzard acquisition was the UK's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

    After a few hours of talks today, both sides agreed that Microsoft...

    FTC Loses Request to Extend Pause on Microsoft's Activision Blizzard Deal

    Microsoft is now (almost) free to close the Activision Blizzard deal after 11:59PM (PT) today.

    The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals just denied the Federal Trade Commission's request to issue an emergency stay to extend a temporary restraining order. The current restraining order ends July 14, 2023 at 11:59PM (PT). This failure to get that temporary extension means that Microsoft, if they wanted to, could close the deal with Activision Blizzard tonight.

    Though it will utilize DirectStorage to help make up the difference in performance.

    The system requirements for the upcoming PC release of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart were shared earlier today in a now deleted Steam blog post. There are five separate configurations offered that show what sort of performance level you can expect.

    Baldur's Gate 3 Devs Warn Against Starting Early Access Now

    Progress is getting wiped in 3 weeks when the game launches.

    Baldur's Gate 3 studio Larian Studios says it would be kind of dumb for players to dive too deep into the current Early Access release. The studio says that no progress from the Early Access release will carry over to the full game when it launches on August 3rd. They instead say to look at a purchase of the Early Access release as "essentially a pre-order."

    Not only will all progress be wiped, but...
