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...

  • The Most Popular and Least Popular Steam Games Discovered

    The Most Popular and Least Popular Steam Games Discovered

    Art Technica put together a list of some of the most popular and some of the least popular games on Steam. They go on a bit about how they gathered the data but that's a bit boring. I mean, if you really want to know, you can head over to read their full article or simply look below for the interesting stuff outlined in the headline.

    As you can see, just because a game is registered to a lot of Steam accounts doesn't mean it's popular. Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, for instance, is the third-most popular game on the service by ownership, registered to about 12.8 million Steam accounts by our count. But the tech demo, which shows off some deleted content from Half-Life 2, has only

    Free Content Promised for Upcoming Titanfall Updates

    A new blog update from the Titanfall team indicates that Respawn is hard at work ironing out remaining issues with the game and have hinted at some future, free content for the game. Essentially, they plan on releasing as much free content (with the exception of map packs) as possible.
    First, we tend the garden and keep the weeds out. The focus here is on the current game, rather than adding new features. One category here would be minor tweaks and fixes, such as our recent adjustments to the Gooser challenge, more generous Hardpoint scoring for attacking players, and weapon balance tweaks to the Titan 40mm and Quad Rocket.

    Ubisoft Gave Game Journalists a Free Nexus 7 at Watch Dogs Preview Event

    At a recent Watch Dogs press event held in Paris, Ubisoft reportedly gave every journalist in attendance a free Nexus 7 tablet. The tablet was part of a "gift bag" that contained the tablet with a number of videos, screenshots, and links loaded onto it beforehand.
