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...

  • New Battlefield 5 Trailer Features Fighting in Europe, a Song About a Brothel, and Battle Royale

    The latest Battlefield V trailer features footage of intense fighting on the Western Front of WWII, while a cover of House of the Rising Sun plays. That is certainly an interesting choice for a song. I'll give them that at least.

    Hey, whatever. It's a new trailer for Battlefield V and it's precisely the sort of thing that was needed.

    This trailer is for Gamescom 2018, which is being held next week. The footage below includes a look at look at some previously unannounced maps, such as the "streets of Rotterdam" and the "burning sands of North Africa."

  • The MP5 Finally Returns to Counter-Strike

    The MP5 Finally Returns to Counter-Strike

    Long ago, in a Counter-Strike far, far away there existed the MP5. Once Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released, the weapon was struck down by the MP7. Fear spread far and wide that we would never again see the return of the little SMG that could.

    Worry not dear players, for the MP5 is indeed back in Counter-Strike and maybe better than ever? I don't really know, I haven't tried it out yet and even if I did, I haven't played Counter-Strike in years so it might actually be garbage but who the hell cares it's back, baby! Yeah!
    Often imitated but never equaled, the iconic MP5 is perhaps the most

  • The Ghost of Titanfall 2 Haunts Battlefield 5 as Analyst States "Weak" Pre-order Figures

    Less than a day after EA executive Patrick Soderlund announced his departure from the company, comes word that pre-order sales for Battlefield V are not doing all that well.

    Analysts at Cowen say that "pre-order sales of Battlefield V have been weak." These thoughts from Cowen come courtesy of Sarah Needleman, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal.

    Cowen feels as though the release date and a lack of marketing are really hurting Battlefield V. They say that "Battlefield could suffer the same fate as EA's 'Titanfall 2'."

    As it stands, Battlefield V's release week is pinned smack dab between Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of...

    Those who enjoy "frightening" PvP style games like Dead by Daylight or even Friday the 13th, probably already know about a new entry in the genre that released into Early Access today.

    It's called Daemonical and as you may have figured, it's a game of kill or be killed as a group of humans tries to complete a ritual all the while being hunted by a demon. It's a tale as old as time.

  • IGN Pulls Nearly All of Filip Miucin's Prior Work as Investigation Finds Multiple Cases of Plagiarism

    If you haven't yet heard, IGN recently fired their Nintendo editor, Filip Miucin, after it came to light that he very, very closely copied a review for Dead Cells. Miucin's video review was for IGN while the review he very apparently copied was from a YouTube channel called Boomstick Gaming. Since then, most of Miucin's work at IGN has been pulled as the investigation uncovers more examples of plagiarism.

    Boomstick Gaming was the first to notice the apparent plagiarism and put up a video showing off the obvious similarities....
