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...

    So, what does this mean for you, the player? They first open by saying they're still working on the "netcode" for the game that they feel wwill "tighten the overall multiplayer experience" for the game. Details are light on this but hopefully more will be revealed in the next month. As for the other freebies, here is what they'll offer up.

  • Over 60 Titan Ships and $155,000 Destroyed in EVE Online Over a Missed Bill Payment

    I'll never understand the appeal of EVE Online. These players spend months and tons of real-world money to build ships in the game, only to go to war and lose it all in an instant. We're talking about real, tangible cash here that these people are losing.

    Such is the case today as the CFC and Russian Coalition took on Pandemic Legion and N3 over a missed bill payment. Seriously.
    "Earlier today an alliance in the N3 coalition missed a bill payment for the system where Pandemic Legion is staging and storing their fleets," writes EVE. "This missed bill caused sovereignty to drop across the system leaving the station vulnerable

  • Update - Leaked Images Show Off Supposed Source Engine 2 Screenshot and Half-Life 3 Development

    Update: These slides are allegedly from a presentation Valve gave three years ago in 2011. It stands to reason that what we see in these screenshots then are already implemented, at least in part, in the current iterations of the Source Engine. The same Source version that we see at work in games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

    Original: It seems as though there's been yet another leak from Valve over the past day. CBOAT from NeoGAF, got his hands on a presentation that shows off Source 2.0 in action. True, we don't know if these are legitimate or not, but CBOAT has been spot on with a number of his leaks and industry "rumors" for quite some time now. ...

    Far Cry 4 is Probably in Development

    This may be the least surprising news we're posting today but it seems as though Far Cry 4 is in development at Ubisoft Shanghai. A recent CV listing on LinkedIn shows that the studio is working on the "next" Far Cry game, which is presumed to be Far Cry 4.

    Hell, maybe it's Blood Dragon 2, which would also be just as nice to see. According to VG247, this isn't the first mention of a new Far Cry game being in development.

  • Dota 2 New Bloom Festival Update Includes Terrorblade

    Dota 2 New Bloom Festival Update Includes Terrorblade

    Yesterday, the first day of reveals for the upcoming "New Bloom Festival" update for Dota 2 included a brief bit of background on the event. It will have new gifts and items galore as players take on the Year Beast.

    Today, Valve has revealed the addition of Terrorblade to the roster. He's that friendly looking fellow at the top of the page.

    Here are Terrorblade's abilities.
    Reflection - Create a double of your foe, which then attacks its original as it slows their movement.
    Conjure Image - Summon forth an illusion of yourself to aid you in battle.
    Metamorphosis - Embrace the darkness within, trading your melee attack for a ranged strike while granting additional damage.
    Sunder - Sever the soul of an ally or enemy, exchanging your health for theirs.

    With the addition of Terrorblade comes some new cosmetic items for him. If you purchase any of these during the New Bloom event, you will get an "Exalted" quality on the item.
    The Fractal Shard of Inner Abysm - Arcana Item

    Deep in the hell of Hell, Terrorblade lay bound behind fractal walls, sentenced to an eternity of twisted contemplation. He stared long into the reflection of his own worst self. And long did his worst self stare into him. Now they rise together, a single entity more powerful than ever before....

    When equipped, this item grants these custom upgrades to Terrorblade:
    Several new animations - Altered voice - New base skin & model with special ambient effects - New Hero icon, portrait, loadout pose & minimap icon - New spell effects and icons - Socketed with a gem that tints the coloring of Terrorblade and all of his abilities - Custom death effect for Terrorblade's victims

    The Arcana is arriving on February 6. The upcoming 6.80 update will also include (among other things) a Random Ability Draft. At level 11 you can enjoy this mode that finds each player randomly being assigned a hero. Each hero's abilities are placed into a pool as each player then takes turns choosing which abilities their hero will bring into battle. Yes, that means that heroes will be using abilities not native to their character. I'm sure that will make for some interesting times.

    Changelog for Dota 2 6.80 Update

    Spoiler: 
    GENERAL - You now lose one gold per second if you haven't picked a hero after the selection timer runs out in All Pick - All Pick selection time increased from 60 to 75 - All Pick pre-creep time reduced from 90 to 75 - Roshan no longer stops upgrading his hp/damage/armor at 45 minutes - Roshan upgra

  • League of Legends Boasts 27 Million Daily Players and 7.5 Million Concurrent Players

    Riot Games revealed to the Wall Street Journal, that League of Legends is doing a-ok for itself to the tune of 27 million daily players and a peak of 7.5 million concurrent players every day.

    Every. Day.

    Let those numbers sink in a little bit. 27 million people play League of Legends on a daily basis. That's absolutely massive. It's even more impressive when you find out that back in October 2012, they only had 12 million people playing the game daily. The concurrent count is also up 50% from the 5 million peak they revealed in March of 2013. That's all well and good, but how much money is the free-to-play title (with optio...
