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...

  • Digital Foundry Compares Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Framerate on Xbox One vs PlayStation 4

    Digital Foundry confirms what was mentioned just the other day when it comes to the framerate differences between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

    In nearly every instance, it seems as though the PS4 version runs at or near 60FPS on average while the Xbone manages to hit just 30FPS.

    For Xbox One, we can only speculate, but we suspect that a lower overall performance resulted in even more noticeable judder were the game to remain unlocked - which would look really unattractive compared to the capped 30fps frame-rate we see in the final game. What's curious from our perspective

    Next Six Months in DayZ to See Vehicles, Hunting, Base Building, and More

    Over the next six months of development, Bohemia Interactive and DayZ creator, Dean Hall, hope to bring a wealth of new features to the game. The game is still very much considered to be in the alpha phase of development but can be found on Steam Early Access for $29.99 (USD).

    Given this alpha stage, it should be expected that there will be a ton of new features coming to the game. In the next six months, the team hopes to include new features such as drivable vehicles, camping, hunting, base building, an improved stamina system, and more.

  • Judge Throws Out $11 Million Award Given to Original John Madden Programmer

    Judge Throws Out $11 Million Award Given to Original John Madden Programmer

    Back in April of 2013, a lawsuit was filed against EA and EA Sports from one of the original programmers for the John Madden Football series, Robin Antonick. They claimed that EA never paid him for his work which was apparently copied for future games from his original work.

    In June, a jury agreed with Antonick and found that EA did use code and features developed by him in Madden from 1990 to 1996. The problem here, says U.S. District Court Judge Charles Breyer, is that the jury did not compare each version of the game in a side-by-side comparison. Instead, their decision was only based on an expert witness.

  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Runs at 60FPS on PS4, Microsoft Defends Xbox One

    It was revealed throughout the week that while Square Enix was targeting 30FPS for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the PS4 version actually runs at 60FPS. As you may have gathered already, the Xbox One version does not.

    Square Enix even said that anything above 30FPS "is gravy" as 30FPS was their primary goal from the start. But given that the PS4 still rolls at 60FPS at the same resolution, that has to sting a little bit, right Microsoft?
    "Everybody wants to focus on, you know, there's a framerate thing going on in Tomb Raider, there is a resolution thing going on and okay, there's a lot of reasons

  • Valve Uses Data Collection to Improve Cobblestone and Overpass in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    Thanks to their intelligent data gathering, Valve is able to take a look at gameplay statistics in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and find trouble spots in various maps. Such was the case when it comes to Cobblestone and Overpass, both of which have been updated in the game's most recent update.

    The CS:GO team analyzed the win percentages of the T's vs the CT's and found that Cobblestone is most comparable to Nuke and Overpass is most similar to Dust2. The following charts are from the top four skill groups in competitive matchmaking from December 20, 2013 to January 20, 2014.

    They then break down the wins to see exac...
