ROCKSTAR CONFIRMS THE DEVELOPMENT OF GTA 6 TO BE WELL UNDERWAY
Rockstar Games is one company that follows a “when they’re ready” policy when games are released. They are patient in development which leads to a polished product. We all knew they were working on Grand Theft Auto 5’s sequel, a game that has been around for more than 10 years. We knew it was important to get official confirmation and we did. Although the announcement was not too grandiose or secretive it was clear: “We are delighted to confirm that active research is underway for the next installment of the series.”
Many people believe this announcement could have been made sooner, if not for GTA Online’s huge success. The official confirmation has opened the door to speculation about the future of the game, its location, and who the main protagonist will be. 5’s steals. Do not be quick to speculate or rant in the comments section. Also, if you want more information on GTA 6, check out our first-hand reports.
ELECTRONIC ARTS PROJECTED TO LOSE $100M DUE TO POOR BATTLEFIELD 2042 PERFORMANCE
Battlefield 2042 still has many issues that make it nearly impossible to play even months after its launch. Players have stopped playing Battlefield 2042. Many are returning to Battlefield 5 and Battlefield 1 five years ago. Electronic Arts confirmed that the game was in financial trouble. They did not mention it in their financial reports, as they were comparing it to other games. This story seems to indicate that the epidemic is to blame for the difficulties of working from home.
EA claims that they thoroughly tested the game and found it ready to play. Issues only arose when players began playing. Some players were skeptical about the purpose of the test. It was specifically designed to assess how games of this nature perform when there are a lot of people playing. EA claims that Battlefield 2042 will reach its full potential no matter how long it takes. The game’s poor performance in the marketplace could result in them losing around 100 million dollars by the end of the second quarter. What is the likelihood? The game could end up in the same place as Anthem which crashed and burned years after its release.
HOGWARTS LEGACY POSSIBLY COMING OUT IN SEPTEMBER 2022
Many people dream of Harry Potter games opening around the world. It’s not surprising that announcements about Hogwarts Legacy are met with great anticipation. The game’s release date is just one thing. Many people believe 2022 is too far fetched considering the scope of the game’s goals. Warner insists the game will be released in 2018, but we have seen only a trailer. It’s not impossible to imagine that the game won’t be released before next year.
The Rowling Library website recently revealed that “The Art and Making of the Hogwarts Legacy”, a book, will be published in September 6. Many avid gamers are encouraged by the fact that books featuring concepts and artwork appear shortly after the game’s release. Warner will likely shift to fifth gear when the game releases within the next eight month. We may also see more information about it in the near future. They may release the game around September’s start of Hogwarts School Year.
A NEW, SMALLER-SCALE ASSASSIN’S CREED GAME IS BEING DEVELOPED
Ubisoft cannot keep up with the Assassin’s Creed money so they have a massive mythical expansion to AC: Valhalla as well as an AC: Infinity project. They plan to release a standalone title that will focus primarily on the sly side of being an Assassin.
Ubisoft received some criticism for each sequel. They believe that it has deviated from their original intent of being assassins. Rift is expected to be released by the end of the year. We shouldn’t have to wait long to hear from Ubisoft.
CALL OF DUTY GAMES WILL CONTINUE COMING OUT ON THE PLAYSTATION
The most common question that gamers asked regarding Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard is whether Call of Duty would be included in the Xbox exclusives. Microsoft received numerous threats to their mailbox. They decided to address the problem and resolve it. Microsoft has reached an agreement with Sony to allow Activision games to be released on PlayStation. They go so far to say that they will continue publishing games on Sony’s PlayStation platform even after current deals expire. This is because they believe it is best for their industry, gamers and business.
Microsoft also announced that they were interested in the Nintendo platform in a similar manner to Nintendo. This is great news for all gamers, as they can sleep at night knowing that their favorite games will be available on any platform without needing to change to another console. Microsoft will bring the games to various platforms. However, certain games may only be available to those who sign up for their Game Pass service.
