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. Donning their biggest surprised Pikachu face possible, these Gamers™ got extra angry when they realized they couldn't just keep dishing it out and not expect some form of retaliation in return. Some continued to throw tantrums, others called for boycots, while still others did their best "I studied the blade" impersonation.

Sony Bought Insomniac Games Today

Get ready for more Spider-Man.

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has officially purchased Insomniac Games today. You're probably surprised to hear that the studio that developed last year's PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man wasn't already owned by Sony prior to this week.

Insomniac Games was first started in 1994 and remained an independent game developer for this 25 year span of time. They created Spyro the Dragon, the Ratchet & Clank games, along with the Resistance franchise. All of these franchises were PlayStation exclusives, at least initially. Every so...

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."

He goes on to say that the Linux version had "become more popular with the cheating community." However, even with performance and anti-cheat improvements coming soon to the Windows...
 

Halo Infinite Creative Director Leaves 343 Industries

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.

His departure from 343 also comes at a time where Halo Infinite is very deep in development. The game isn't slated to be released until late 2020, but it has been in development at the Microsoft owned studio for around four years at present. Halo Infinite's...

  • Disney Interactive Lays Off Around 700 Employees

    Disney Interactive Lays Off Around 700 Employees

    About 700 employees, or 26% of its global staff, were laid off from Disney Interactive on Thursday. While layoffs were expected to happen, nobody expected the layoffs to be on this large of a scale.

    The move came after Disney decided to combine two business, mobile gaming and social gaming. As a result of these layoffs and the changed focus, the company will "cut annual game output by as much as 50%." Last year, they released nearly two dozen titles.
    "These are large-scale changes as we focus not just on getting to profitability but sustained profitability and scalability," James A. Pitaro, the president of Disney Interactive. "W

  • DirectX 12 to Debut at GDC 2014

    DirectX 12 to Debut at GDC 2014

    On March 20, 2014 at 10AM, DirectX 12 will be revealed at GDC. There really isn't much to go on right now outside of a very green DirectX 12 landing page on the MSDN website.

    Interestingly, the notable logos on the page show the usual suspects of AMD, Nvidia, and even Intel. The real interesting one is Qualcomm Snapdragon, meaning that DirectX 12 might have a big focus on future mobile devices.

    It will be interesting to see if DirectX 12 requires all new hardware and/or a whole new operating system (Windows 9) just to be used....
