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...

    Broken Age Act 2 is Officially Funded

    To those worried that the second half of Double Fine's Broken Age wouldn't be made, you can rest easy. Tim Schafer has confirmed that funding for Broken Age Act 2 has been secured and that the second act will be completed.
    "We've made enough that we can make the second half of the game for sure," Schafer said. "And we're not done making it to all the platforms because we haven't released it on iPad yet.

    Square Enix is Interested in Bringing More Final Fantasy Games to PC

    In an interview with Eurogamer, Final Fantasy Producer, Yoshinori Kitase, said that the company is "definitely interested" in bringing more Final Fantasy games to the PC.

    In fact, Final Fantasy 13 began its life on the PC and was then ported to consoles. It would have been very easy for them to release PC versions of all three games but decided against it for two reasons.
    "(W)e looked at the market situation and we didn't think it would be a good idea, and also it would have involved lots of complex issues like security. So we decided not to do it this time around. "But we see potential in it and there are lots of reg

    Respawn Denies Titanfall Bribery Claims

    Apparently, the Internet is busy being the Internet again and some are donning their foil hats and saying Respawn Entertainment has bribed journalists for the favorable Titanfall reception.

    The company went on the defensive with a post from Respawn's Drew McCoy at NeoGAF.
    Anyone who thinks we weren't living in the shadow of decade+ old established franchises at our reveal at E3 are as crazy as their conspiracy theories of anyone getting paid off. We've had to fight tooth and nail to have a game that anyone would even know existed, let alone be excited for and want to create coverage of. I get it that
