Thats not accurate its just something thats going around. The fine print reads:

"unable to guarantee that cloud save data will be retained after an extended period of time from when your membership is ended."

So there will be a buffer period just like on ps+. Ps+ is 120 days

According to reports, Capcom has shut down their Capcom Vancouver studio and all projects in development there were terminated. Official reason due to the studio's severe financial problems for the past year.

Shutting down the studio and all of its projects is currently expected to cost Capcom around $40 million.

It was also reported Capcom has scaled back their global development plans with all major projects to be developed only in their Japanese studios going forward.

Some of their games were great. Others, not so much.

I wonder if they're gonna put everything up for sale as one whole package. Or part it out like when THQ folded.

Probably a mix of both. Their bigger games can fetch a decent sum on their own and then toss in the rest as a package deal based on the level of interest for them.

Supposedly they never made a good profit on any of their episodic games besides Walking Dead Season 1 and one other game. Their licensed games bombed a lot more for revenues.

IKR? It's like, finish TWD: The Final Season and then if you shut down you wouldn't have as many people up in arms because you're leaving quite probably your best-selling game series on an abrupt cliffhanger with only a few episodes to go.

Maybe their parents will give them the money to keep the doors open long enough to finish

According to a report from US Gamer, doesn't seem to be the case.

Parent company is only keeping the studio afloat to finish their current contract commitments with Netflix's new Minecraft series.

Official cancellation for Walking Dead's Final Season is currently rumored to be happening next week.

Telltale Games recently announced they are currently exploring options to finish the Walking Dead's Final Season in some form.




If they can't get it done in video game form, speculation around the net is them doing it in comics form with the creators of the Walking Dead comics series.

Hopefully they do get to finish that and it doesn't just go the way of Swordquest.

Stranger Things seemed like a property tailor made for Telltale.

Lastly, and more disappointly for me, their shuttering means no more Poker Night. A third installment could have been awesome if they continued to keep the humor tight and the crossover participants eclectic. Could totally see Rick Sanchez at a table either as a participant or replacing Reginald and GLaDOS as dealer. Ah, what could have been...

Not good news for the 90% of Telltale's staff suddenly laid off with no severance. I wanted to get around to it at first, but I may just hold off or even not play it ever until or unless they take care of that first.

Today's News:
1) After stubbornly dragging their feet on the issue, Sony announced they have dropped their anti-cross-platform play stance for games. As part of its aftermath, Epic Games announced they now can offer the ability for Fortnite accounts to be merged and also unlink from the PS4 while keeping all your purchases in tact. There is a catch though as Rocket League developer Psyonix studio hinted Sony's actual change in stance will be slower or unchanged for other games.

2) For those interested in Super Mario Party, some new details were recently released mainly in regards to no support for handheld play nor Pro Controllers.
https://www.destructoid.com/psa-supe...r-524526.phtml

3) In another update to recent Telltale Games closure news, Walking Dead: Final Season has been pulled from sale from almost all digital stores and official reason due to Telltale requesting a halt in sales for the foreseeable future.

Money they would've had if they hadn't spent so much of it on licenses for games based on TV shows and movies.

For those interested in Sony's yearly Playstation Experience events, Sony announced they will not be holding one this year. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shawn Layden stated the official reason is due to them not having anything interesting left to show off for the year and other projects are too early in development for reveals.

Also seems they are finally learning why its not a good idea to show off games way too early.

The #1 problem was terrible management demanding more TWD games. Couple that with the fact that only 2 or 3 of their games ever made them a profit and the disaster gumbo really comes to a boiling point.

Also being rumored that those same employees either have or are in the process of filing a class-action suit against the company, as in violation of the Warren Act, TTG did not give 30 days advance warning of layoffs which involved more than 50 employees.

But hey, it's not like those employees have families to try and provide for or anything, right?

Think Destor was playing with the idea of licensed games being a weakness of theirs when their whole gimmick was story based explorations of known brands. He passed no ill will to the employees.

Though if only so many games made profit then I'd say their days were numbered regardless.

Exactly.

The issue was always only TWD game made any money so when a licensed IP failed (GoT for example) it cost a TON of money and with no IPs of their own...well here we are.

They have no money to pay anyone anything.

Which actually relates to my long stated points about the weakness of narrative based games vs open-ended replayable games and multiplayer. If a YouTube vid or longplay stream can subvert 80% of the experience, we're looking at a dying breed of game.
