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...

  • SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode Enters Early Beta

    SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode Enters Early Beta

    Valve announced today that the SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode is now in an early beta phase. They say that this will be "showcased at next week's Game Developer Conference in San Francisco."

    What is Desktop Theater Mode? It's a mode that allows VR users to play non-VR games with their VR hardware still on. It doesn't magically turn your non-VR ready games into 3D experiences. It instead probably projects a flat virtual screen or monitor that you can view as if it were a real world screen or monitor in front of you.

    Valve Announces 'The Lab' for VR Experiments at GDC

    If you will be attending GDC next week in San Francisco, you may want to set aside some time to check out what Valve will be doing. The studio announced that they will debut something called "The Lab," which is a compilation of a number of VR experiments that visitors can try out.

    The Lab is "set in a pocket universe of Aperture Science" and "offers multiple ways to enjoy room-scale VR." It's probably almost a 100% guarantee that the VR hardware on display for these demos will be the HTC Vive.

    Valve promises that there will be more information made available next week during GDC....

  • Gabe Newell Responds to Terrible Dota 2 Shanghai Major - Calls James Harding an Ass, Fires Production Company

    Apparently, the Dota 2 Shanghai Major is kind of a shitshow. There are apparently problems with players getting the appropriate hardware, there are problems with being unable to watch the matches, and the list goes on.

    It apparently got so bad that Gabe Newell took to the Dota 2 subreddit to reveal that someone named James is an ass and that they're firing the production company.
    Two things: 1) James. We've had issues with James at previous events. Some Valve people lobbied to bring him back for Shanghai, feeling that he deserved another chance. That was a mistake. James is an ass, and we won't be working with him again. 2) As long as we're firing people,

  • Valve Increases Every CS:GO Major to $1 Million Prize Pool

    Valve Increases Every CS:GO Major to $1 Million Prize Pool

    Valve is starting to show the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitive scene a bit more love. Starting with MLG Columbus 2016, every CS:GO Major Championship will have a prize pool of $1 million.
    When we announced the first CS:GO Major Championship in 2013, we hoped the Majors would be rallying points for the community, tent-pole events that could draw new audiences and amplify the value of all events. Since then, the professional CS:GO community has been growing at an incredible rate. CS:GO tournaments are now among the largest esports events in the world, drawing global audiences of millions of viewers, filling massive venues, and
