Respawn Apologizes to Ass-hat Gamers for 'Ass-hat' Remarks

Statement issued from Respawn's Vince Zampella.

Respawn's CEO Vince Zampella issued a bit of an apology today after members of the Apex Legends development team called a bunch of toxic ass-hat gamers, well... they called them ass-hats.

Sony Bought Insomniac Games Today

Get ready for more Spider-Man.

Rust is Killing Linux Support; Devs Offer Refunds

Rust became a "cheater's sanctuary" on Linux.

On August 9, Rust developer Garry Newman wrote a blog talking about potential plans for the long neglected Linux client for their open-world survival game. In the blog, Newman talks about how he and the team could have done more to support the client, even if he says their support "might have been above average."

Tim Longo says farewell to 343.

The creative director for Halo Infinite, Tim Longo, is no longer employed at 343 Industries. His departure comes just a few weeks after he had moved to a different role within the company a few weeks back. The details surrounding his move to that "new role" are quite scarce.

  • Killing Floor 2 Takes a Cue from CS:GO with Cosmetic Item Pack Microtransactions

    Earlier, Tripwire Interactive announced some new cosmetic item packs that have a chance to drop while playing Killing Floor 2. Much like in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or Team Fortress 2, these packs will contain a fairly random assortment of cosmetic gear that you can unlock by purchasing a key from the store.
