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).

The Epic Games Store just kicked off its own multi-week long sale today. This sale finds discounts of up to 75% off of some titles. It also includes discounts on pre-orders for games like John Wick Hex, Borderlands 3, or Control. Just to name a few.

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 Final Fantasy VII Remake Teaser

Just watch it.

A new teaser trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake was finally shown off today. It's the first one shown off in, I think, over a year. It's not much but maybe it'll be enough until we hear and see more this June. ...

  • Valve Discusses Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Negev Changes

    Valve Discusses Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Negev Changes

    In a blog posting that went up last night, Valve started to detail some of the changes and thoughts they have in mind for the Negev in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Some of these changes are already being tested as part of a beta update for CS:GO but they say that the changes, barring any issues, will go live soon. Their main focus right now is making the Negev a weapon that can provide adequate suppression in the heat of a battle.

  • Valve Announces Subscription Service Dota Plus "An Evolution of the Majors Battle Pass"

    Earlier today, Valve announced Dota Plus, a new monthly subscription service for Dota 2 that is "designed to help you get the most out of every match you play." They're also calling it an "evolution of the Battle Pass" that Valve tends to put out for events like The International or the Majors.

    The difference now is that the Pro Circuit meant that the Majors Battle Passes are being replaced with this Dota Plus service. It won't rely on a specific start and end date and it's something that Valve promises they will add features and content to over time.
    This reimagining of the Majors Battle Pass will be an ongoing,

  • CS:GO Betting Scammer PhantomL0rd Suing Twitch Because He's Probably Running Out of Money or Something

    In 2016, PhantomL0rd was found to be involved in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive bet rigging and being an undisclosed partial owner of CSGOShuffle, a skin betting website.

    Sorry, I meant to say that he was allegedly a total douche canoe that scammed numerous people out of money by lying to them. To make a long story short, PhantomL0rd was banned from Twitch after news broke about his "allegedly" douchey actions.

    Fast-forward now to 2018 and PhantomL0rd is now suing Twitch for "breach of contract, intentional interference with contractual relations, and intentional and negligent misrepresentation in removing him from their platform." Basically,...

  • Counter-Strike Co-Creator Deemed "A Risk to the Community" and Hit with $150K Bail

    On Friday, Counter-Strike co-creator Jess Cliffe was hit with a $150,000 bail after being booked into King County jail on Thursday. The representative for the King County Prosecuting Attorney's office, Nyoka Maraire, requested that the bail be set for $250,000. This would be for both the "community's safety and the victim's safety." The $250,000 bail was requested after it was found that Cliffe had used an adult website to contact a minor and paid for sex multiple times. During one such encounter, Cliffe had videotaped the sexual encounter "against her will." It was after this encounter that the victim (referred to in this case as the "witness") said that they "stopped...

  • Counter-Strike Co-Creator Jess Cliffe Arrested for Sexual Exploitation of a Child (Update: Valve Suspends Cliffe)

    Jess Cliffe was arrested this morning (February 1, 2018) at 1:17AM (PT) for "sexual exploitation of a child." For those few of you who do not know, Jess Cliffe is a co-creator of Counter-Strike. He and Minh Le (Gooseman) created the wildly popular game back in 2000. It started as a modification for Half-Life and since became a number of very popular stand-alone products. While the police did not provide any additional details, we do know that Cliffe does not have a criminal history. He was booked at 1:17AM into King County Jail. A bail hearing is scheduled for the afternoon of Friday, February 2. As of this writing, Cliffe is still under the empl...

  • Cloud9 Defeats FaZe at ELEAGUE Boston 2018 to Become First American Roster to Win CS:GO Major

    Cloud9 has become the first American Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster to win a Major Championship. Cloud9 defeated FaZe Clan 14-16, 16-10, and 22-19 (2OT) in the Grand Final event that took place earlier tonight. Perhaps just as impressive are the numbers that ELEAGUE pulled in for tonight's event. More than 1,130,000 streams were broadcast at the same time. That has now set a new record on Twitch for most concurrent streams at one time for a single channel. The previous record was also apparently held by ELEAGUE from the the first Major they hosted. I say concurrent streams because there were undoubtedly far more than 1.13 million people watching, especially if people had viewing parties. ...

    CS:GO Update for January 10: Panorama UI for CS:GO is... Still Not Here

    The moment you're all waiting for is finally here. The moment where you are again disappointed at the lack of the Panorama UI for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Oh well, you should be used to this kind of disappointment by now. At least now you know how your parents feel.

    However, today's update instead ends the Holiday Cheer event, and provides a couple of minor changes.

  • CES 2018: HTC and Valve Announce SteamVR Tracking 2.0 and Vive Pro Headset

    CES 2018: HTC and Valve Announce SteamVR Tracking 2.0 and Vive Pro Headset

    Today, Valve and HTC announced a minor technology bump to the HTC Vive. This bump comes in the form of SteamVR Tracking 2.0, which allows for users to link up to four Base Stations in a single space. In addition to making the jump from two to four stations, the improved technology allows for game space areas to jump to sizes as large as 10 by 10 meters. Valve tells us that the new technology is expected to ship with commercial devises later this year. The new 2.0 Base Stations will be "smaller, more reliable, and offer improved performance." Interestingly, this press release by Valve doesn't touch upon some of the other many additions that either just hit HTC Vive sets ...
