    Former Rockstar Employee Claims Former Executive Sexually Harassed Him

    This industry still has a lot of growing up to do.

    According to a report filed by Kotaku's Jason Schreier, a former Rockstar designer says that a former top executive groped him. The designer, Colin Brundschu, says that he wasn't sure what to do when he was groped by Jeronimo Barrera, the former VP of product development at Rockstar.

    Bundschu says that after he was hired in 2014, his colleagues gave him a warning of "don't cross Jeronimo Barrera." He was warned by many employees to "mind how you talk to him." Barrera, according to sources, had a reputation...

  • 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.

  • Former Gearbox Lawyer Claims CEO Randy Pitchford Took Secret $12 Million Bonus in Lawsuit Gearbox Claims is 'Absurd'


    Buckle up, everyone, because this is going to be a real doozy of a news post.

    There are two lawsuits recently filed between Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford and the former general counsel for Gearbox. They're both suing each other, both claiming the other were in violation of their legal responsibilities to the company. The lawsuit against Pitchford from the former Gearbox lawyer Wade Callender says that Pitchford received a secret $12 million bonus from Take-Two Interactive.

    Callender's lawsuit, filed December 21, 2018, also says that Pitchford is in violation of some contracts that involve Gearbox and a "separate real estate company" that both of them owned. Gearbox says that these accusations are "absurd" in a brief statement released today by a Gearbox spokesperson. ...

    Blizzard Reportedly Pulled Diablo 4 Announcement from BlizzCon (Updated)

    I figure an entirely new news post for this would be appropriate. Yesterday, it was reported from Kotaku's Jason Schreier that Blizzard had apparently pulled a Diablo 4 announcement at the last minute from BlizzCon 2018.

    A video had apparently been recorded featuring Blizzard's co-founder Allen Adham talking to fans about a new Diablo project. The original statement says that Blizzard pulled this video announcement from BlizzCon 2018 at the last minute. Blizzard has since come forward to make a public statement about this, saying that no, this wasn't the case at all.

    Kotaku Rumor Suggests Microsoft is Close to Buying Obsidian

    A new rumor popped up about an hour ago courtesy of Kotaku and Jason Schreier that Microsoft is close to purchasing Obsidian. I don't normally post a bunch of rumors on the site unless there is good reason for it and the reason I'm posting this one is because Jason Schreier has a great track record on this sort of stuff. So while it's not confirmed or announced anywhere, there is probably a good chance that the rumor being true of Microsoft being close to buying Obsidian.

    Kotaku's sources say that the deal is "90%" finished, while another suggested that the deal was more of a matter of "when" and not "if."

  • 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....

    Rumor: New BioShock in Development from 2K

    According to some quick investigative work by Kotaku's Jason Schreier, a "top-secret" 2K studio is working on a "top-secret" new BioShock game. Schreier found this out while reporting on a story about Hangar 13 and how that studio lost its way with Mafia III.

    This should probably not come as too big of a surprise to anybody. It will be interesting to see how this new BioShock game fares without Ken Levine and Irrational Games.

    Rumor: Destiny 2's First DLC Includes Rescuing Osiris

    The latest Destiny 2 DLC rumor comes to us courtesy of Jason "Press Sneak Fuck" Schreier of Kotaku. This rumor suggests that the first piece of DLC will focus on the magical space wizard, Osiris, and will include a new patrol zone and new social space.

There will be a new patrol area and it will be on Mercury. A new social space is the Lighthouse, the area formerly reserved to those that went flawless in the Trials of...

    Randy Pitchford Denies Battleborn F2P Rumor

    Yesterday, Kotaku ran an article saying that Battleborn was going the free-to-play route soon. They cited an anonymous source that said the game was originally slated to be a F2P game but only ended up as a $60 retail release because of 2K.

    Last night, Randy Pitchford denied those claims that Battleborn was going F2P. He denied the claims but when he tried to explain further what exactly is happening with the game, he uh... well... it's kind of confusing?

    So, they are planning on releasing a timed demo?

    Destiny 2 Reportedly Coming to PC

    According to both Jason Schreier of Kotaku and the industry insider known as shinobi602, Destiny 2 will also be released on the PC in addition to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Kotaku cites different sources that say the game is PC bound and that it will feel like an entirely new game compared to the first Destiny. According to the sources, this news cropped up during an internal presentation at Activision. It was also suggested by these sources t hat Vicarious Visions, another Activision-owned studio, is helping out on Destiny 2.

    Perhaps the most shocking news here is that Destiny 2 will feel like a proper sequel and not something that you would consider a mere add-on.
