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...

    Twitch Streamer Caught Cheating in CS:GO, Tries to Blame Friend

    MissQGemini was a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive streamer on Twitch. I say was because Twitch has already taken action against them after the following events unfolded on a recent Twitch stream.

    A video posted yesterday shows the CS:GO player loading up a hotkey activated cheat menu, proceeding to load a custom profile, cheat in CS:GO, and then attempt to blame their friend. Twitch has a zero tolerance policy for streaming cheating in online multiplayer games. This can be found at the bottom of their Community Guidelines.

  • Steam Direct Fee Details and Changes to Steam Curators

    Steam Direct Fee Details and Changes to Steam Curators

    With the imminent death of Steam Greenlight, Valve finally started to get some details out about their Steam Direct program that will replace it. First up, the fee for adding games to Steam Direct will be $100, which honestly sounds a bit low given that this is the same price as what Greenlight was.

    But hey, let's see what Valve's reasoning is for making it $100.
    We thought it would be great if the game community at large had a conversation about it, including both players and developers, which was why we chose not to highlight a specific amount in that original post. Since then, we've seen a bunch of great conversations discussing the various pros and cons of whether there should be an amount, what that amount should be, ways that recouping could work, which devel

  • Chet Faliszek Leaves Valve

    Chet Faliszek Leaves Valve

    The second half of Old Man Murray and someone that was undoubtedly a champion of our virtual future, Chet Faliszek, has left Valve. Faliszek parts ways from a legacy that stretches back 12 years with the former game developer.

    Faliszek played a major role in Valve's Vive VR platform, pushing developers to jump into the virtual whether it was on Vive or competing platforms. Some of his writing credits while at Valve include the two Half-Life 2 Episodes, both Portal games, and both Left4Dead titles.

    This departure comes just a few months after his writing partner in crime, Erik Wolpaw, departed Valve. It also comes months after Mark Laidlaw, another major writer at...

  • Latest Update for Dota 2 Fixes Matchmaking for Everyone

    Latest Update for Dota 2 Fixes Matchmaking for Everyone

    The latest update for Dota 2 targets the game's matchmaking system, something that has been a point of much angst among the community. Seriously, just look at this positivity even over on Reddit.

    The main highlights include the return of the solo queue, you must register a number to play ranked, there are now bans from ranked games, bot accounts were hit with a permanent ban wave, and more. This also includes
    LINKED PHONE NUMBER The first major change is that players must register a unique phone number to their account in order to queue for Ranked matches. Players using multiple accounts create a negative matchmaking experience at all skill brackets, so our goal is to add just enough friction to this process that the number of players doing this will be noti

    Unreleased Half-Life 2 Episode Map Leaked

    The folks over at ValveTime got their hands on some of the uncompiled source files for an unreleased Half-Life 2 episode. Included in the leak are a series of files related to the Half-Life 2: Episode series of games. These include maps for Episode One, several early Episode Two maps, and a map from a canceled Episode that was in development from Junction Point Studios.

    The map dates back to late 2005 and shows off a snow-themed version of Ravenholm. It includes "small puzzles, scripted sequences, and fights." It's important to note that this was not tied into Episode Four: Return to Ravenholm, which was in development by Arkane Studios. ...
