    I Guess Destiny 2 was Just Officially Announced

    Last week we saw some leaked posters for Destiny 2, a game that technically wasn't even announced yet, but we all knew was coming.

It's kind of a weird situation since there is literally nothing else here besides a simple image. This "announcement" comes not with a bang but a whimper. Maybe we'll get a trailer soon? Maybe w...

    Rumor: Leaked Art Points to WWII Setting for Call of Duty 2017

    If this leaked artwork is to be believed, Call of Duty will make a return to WWII in its 2017 release. Artwork depicting Call of Duty: WWII surfaced today from Reddit and "TheFamilyVideoGamers" on YouTube.

    The original leak seems to come from the person that leaked the first details about Infinite Warfare's multiplayer ahead of its reveal, so there might be something to this. Despite how authentic these images may be, it is still advised to take them with a grain of salt....

    Destiny 2 Poster, Release Date, and Release Platforms Leaked

    Today, a couple of posters were leaked showing that yes, Destiny 2 is real and it's slated to be released on September 8. And by "posters" I mean those paper things you hang on walls and not random words posted on a message board.
