Well, if it's anything like The Old Republic with a Destiny-like style, this could be interesting. Big open world games are Ubisoft's thing.

Just curious as to how much of the Massive staff is on this since some are probably still keeping Division 2 going.

New KOTOR (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) game in the works, NOT by EA nor Bioware.




And a Diablo II remake is being done by Vicarious Visions (Crash Bandicoot remakes, other stuff too probably).


Good stuff.

Supposedly it's some outfit not even on the radar in the gaming industry handling KOTOR.

BUT, if it's a full on remake of the first 2 and the chatter about getting that into canon is true, I can see Bluepoint handling it.

Incredible. Hopefully they stay true to the original art style. I put so much time into Diablo 2, it was a huge part of my teenage gaming years. Used to rush home from school just to play with my online friends.
Diablo III was a gigantic disappointment, Blizzard doesn't know how to do atmosphere in games anymore.

Yesterday was the 24 year anniversary of Final Fantasy 7 being released. I could really see where Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 is released Jane 31 2022 to mark the 25 year anniversary.

Google is currently in the process of shutting down their internal gaming studios and sticking to just signing deals with third party devs and publishers to provide games for their Stadia streaming service.

In a blog post, he cited the "exponentially" rising costs involved with "creating best-in-class games from the ground up."

"Over the coming months, most of the SG&E team will be moving on to new roles," he said. "We're committed to working with this talented team to find new roles and support them." At least one high-profile name, Jade Raymond, is out – she "decided to leave Google to pursue other opportunities."

According to reporting from Kotaku, Google's closure of its Montréal and Los Angeles development studios will "impact around 150 developers" ...

As for where Google's cloud-gaming ambitions are headed, Harrison is staying on-board as VP and GM of Stadia, and he's pursuing more partnerships with external game developers and publishers.

The ESA reportedly is currently working on plans for this year's E3 event to be a digital-only style event.

Only problem is they need to convince enough publishers to support the idea or could potentially be looking at another year without E3 due to coronavirus pandemic issues.

The ESA's proposed event is trying to line up support from major publishers, but the idea for a remote E3 would potentially include "multiple two-hour keynote sessions from games partners, an awards show, a June 14 preview night, and other smaller streams from games publishers, influencers, and media partners," as VGC summarizes. Throughout 2020, publishers offered playable previews of upcoming games through streaming apps like Parsec; that would also be the case for this new E3 ...

The cancellation of E3 2020 and lack of a digital-only replacement opened the path for Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest alternative – to say nothing of smaller and mid-tier publishers rallying with their own one-off streams and showcases. We can expect Summer Game Fest to return in 2021.

Thankfully, the next iteration will be shorter – "less than one month," according to Keighley.

EA top brass will be doing a review of BioWare's Anthem reboot later during the week. It's pretty much going to determine if EA will continue to back it or just give it up.

According to CD Projekt RED, the company was recently hit with a major cyber attack.

Among the data stolen from their servers was the source code to Cyberpunk 2077. The hackers also sent a ransom note threatening to leak it and other sensitive company files online if their demands were not met.

CDPR has noted that it has full backups of all of the stolen data, which is believed to include the source code to the studio's recent release Cyberpunk 2077, code for an unreleased edition of Witcher 3, as well as "documents relating to accounting, administration, legal, HR, investor relations and more." CDPR has said that - to the best of its knowledge - no data involving players' personal information is at risk.

In a surprising move, CDPR also released a copy of the "ransom note" it received from the hacker(s), requesting that CDPR contact the individual(s) responsible or face public release of the hacked documents, source code, and other data files. CDPR has said it will "not give in to the demands nor negotiate with the actor, being aware that this may eventually lead to the release of the compromised data."

The studio is currently investigating the security breach with the help of its IT analysts, law enforcement officials, and the President of the Personal Data Protection Office.

Sony is currently facing the possibility of being hit with a class-action lawsuit soon in regards to drift issues with the PS5 controller.

Unlike Nintendo's issues with Switch joycons, seems PS5's drift problems can be triggered quicker and with less wear-and-tear usage needed.

If I remember correctly, drift and thumbstick issues becoming a growing problem with controllers these days is mostly due to the current standard for thumbstick tech and design. Add in manufacturing issues like Nintendo has been experiencing and that's the recipe for controllers being less reliable these days for long-term usage. Plus some issues with Bluetooh and/or wireless tech inside the controllers as well.

U.S. law firm Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith (CSK&D) has stepped into the situation, announcing that it is beginning an investigation of the complaints, with an eye to filing a class action lawsuit against Sony Interactive Entertainment ...

This is not CSK&D's first rodeo, as it is one of a number of firms that has previously launched a class action suit against Nintendo when the troublesome controller fault affected myriad Switch owners. CSK&D's 2019 suit was ultimately compelled to arbitration, (essentially asking the plaintiff and the defendant to come to private resolution), after the presiding judge refused to dismiss the case.

Thankfully not had to deal with drift on any controller I have. This sounds bad tho, and Sony should do what they can to get in front of it like Nintendo did if true.

* Update on the recent CD Projekt RED hacking attack news as the hacker group responsible, called HelloKitty, recently held an auction on the "dark web" and sold the source code for Cyberpunk 2077 and other stolen data files for an alleged amount of around $7 million.

* Update on the recent Sony's PS5 controller "drift" issues news as U.S. law firm Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith (CSK&D) filed a class against lawsuit against Sony this past Friday over claims of Sony being fully aware and purposely negligent over resolving the PS5 controller's drift issues.

Capcom is rumored to be currently working on a new Resident Evil Revelations game. The rumor also hints that this game is currently expected to be released within a year of RE Village's release and as a timed exclusive for the Switch.

They clarify the news by saying that it likely won't be called Revelations 3, but possibly Resident Evil Outrage, as Capcom seemingly is moving away from the Revelations moniker.

It'll be part of the 25th anniversary celebration, "along with Village," and Dusk Golem claims that Revelations 3 (or whatever title it ends up with) is "almost definitely going to be a Switch timed exclusive." All of this will allegedly happen "later this year," as Capcom announces another Resident Evil marketing blitz post-Village launch.

Seems like a bad choice to have sword controls tied to the right analog joycon for the Zelda remake.


Gonna make cameras wonky. Feel like they would have done better with an Ocarina of Time reboot.

Nintendo fanboys man children are gonna throw a fit about the Skyward Sword remake. They all hate that game already plus it was literally made to accomodate the updated motion controls of the Wii. I would not be surprised if it's cancelled

If they do any other quality-of-life tweaks to the game besides the controls, hope it involves scaling back on the amount of hand holding and talking by Fi and the annoying issue of how it treated getting items every time you started a new play session.

Plus maybe make the first hour or two of the game more enjoyable or less sluggish in pacing although that might be a bit harder because of how story and world building heavy it was.

Konami is currently rumored to be working on a new game in the Silent Hill series, according to VGC.

This new game isn't being developed by Konami themselves and instead by a "prominent Japanese developer" with plans to officially reveal it during this summer.

Same source also claims that Konami is also currently working on plans for a potential new game to be made for both the Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania series.

The outlet heard from sources that a Supermassive pitch didn't move forward, and that Konami has "outsourced a Silent Hill project to a prominent Japanese developer, with a reveal due this summer."

(The author noted on Twitter that it's not Kojima Productions – a frequent guess – and added that Konami is eying externally-developed Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania projects further out.)

On a separate but (maybe) related note, potentially suggesting that there could be more than one modern interpretation of Silent Hill, speculation has come out of a GamesIndustry.biz interview with Bloober Team CEO Peter Babieno, in which he commented on the studio's next horror game.

Babieno says they've "been working for more than a year on another gaming project, another horror IP, and we're doing this with a very famous gaming publisher. I can't tell you who. I can't tell you what the project is, but I'm pretty sure when people realize we're working on it, they will be very excited."

* Google is currently facing a class-action lawsuit in regards to allegations of the company purposely misleading consumers over their claims of 4K support for their Stadia cloud-based gaming streaming service.

The Plaintiff alleges that publishers such as id Software "sold access to Doom Eternal, and other games, through the Google Stadia subscription and wrongfully generated millions of dollars in revenue as a result." The suit seeks non-specific monetary compensation for Stadia purchasers, and requests Google accurately and publicly display Stadia's resolution and FPS on all included titles going forward.

Gamestop announced that their CFO and Executive Vice President Jim Bell will be resigning from his roles in the company late next month.

No official reason was given for the decision.

As part of his resignation, Bell will be getting a severance package worth more than double his annual salary.

The retailer noted that as Bell is resigning with "good reason," the soon-to-be-former CFO will receive severance in the region of $2.8 million - over twice their annual salary. The company's filings do not denote specifically what led to the resignation decision. GameStop has begun interviewing candidates for a suitable replacement.

The news comes following a particularly chaotic financial period for the company. While GameStop, like many retailers, has struggled to adapt to a changing retail market, these efforts were further hampered by the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the recent stock rush drama only served to further complicate matters, with GameStop stock rising to almost $500-per-share before plummeting to around $40-per-share in the space of a fortnight, as online communities such as Wall Street Bets inflated prices in order to cause major losses for market short-sellers.

The U.S. Securities and Exchanges Commission is currently investigating the events of the so-called "Gamestonks" rush, in order to ascertain whether any unlawful conduct was committed by any of the parties involved - including online communities, independent traders, and stock market trading apps.

Amazing. Most exciting gaming news I have heard all year. Silent Hill 2 is one of my top games of all time, I still play it time to time. I just hope its a new original game and not a remake, I don't think any remake could do the original justice.


A little bit wary, I don't know if a new development team outside of Konami can capture the magic. I will still buy it, but the newer Silent Hill games never matched the masterpieces that 1-3 were. Homecoming was really bad, and Vatra games' Downpour left a lot to be desired, but was still a really good game that got overlooked because of a disastrous buggy launch.


Hope they hand it off to someone who UNDERSTANDS Silent Hill. I want a new story in the vein of the originals. I would hate to see another Silent Hill with a pyramid head enemy just because "PYRaMid HeaD = SILENT HILL". Anyone who just throws a pyramid head in, like the Silent Hill movies do, really did not understand it's origins. It was unique to the story of Silent Hill 2, the protoganists inner demon punishing him for his sins, perceived or otherwise.


If they get it right, it will be the game to make me run out and buy a next gen console.
I could talk Silent Hill for hours...SO MUCH depth to those games, especially 2.

Word of the restructure first came via an in-depth report by VGC, who noted that Sony Japan Studio had released a "vast majority" of its development staff, not renewing their annual contracts as the clock ticks down on a new financial year. It has also been impossible not to notice the growing list of producers who have recently left Sony to seek their fortunes and creative muses elsewhere. Sony has since responded to VGC's report, openly stating that the Japan Studio is currently in a deep process of consolidation and restructure.

"In an effort to further strengthen business operations, SIE can confirm PlayStation Studios Japan Studio will be re-organized into a new organization on April 1," said a Sony spokesperson. "Japan Studio will be re-centered to Team ASOBI, the creative team behind Astro's Playroom, allowing the team to focus on a single vision and build on the popularity of Astro's Playroom. In addition, the roles of external production, software localization, and IP management of JAPAN Studio titles will be concentrated within the global functions of PlayStation Studios" ...

VGC's report suggests that creative differences may be a key factor in the studio's struggles, with Japan Studio wishing to continue its focus on unique and most creatively distinct titles, while Sony Interactive Entertainment at large was hoping for the studio to develop games with a more universal, mainstream appeal. While the former way of thinking is noble and to be celebrated, the fact remains that Japan Studio hasn't been profitable in some time, with many seeing the writing on the wall as far back as a year ago.

Sony is getting out of the movie and TV show market on the Playstation Store. It'll be just strictly games. No more purchases and rentals. Of course, anything you have bought can still be watched.

You got until August 31st of this year to look around for some deals.

Bandi Namco is currently rumored to be working on a Nintendo Direct-like series for their own game announcements.

Basis for the rumor involves a recent trademark filed by the company for the term "Bandai Namco Next" for entertainment related stuff like online streaming shows.

"Bandai Namco Next" was recently approved, and evidently applies to "amusement parks, esports competitions, movies, toys, plays, musical performances, radio programs, computer networks, online publications, animated feature films, and games," according to TheGamer. Given that their prior Bandai Namco event was kind of a bust (consistently mostly of stuff we've already seen, very late at night in the US), I hope they bring it.

Sony currently working on the idea of using a banana (and other items) as a gaming controller based on a recent patent filing.

In a filing spotted by GamesIndustry.biz, Sony said that it "would be desirable if a user could use an inexpensive, simple, and non-electronic device as a video game peripheral."

Enter the banana.

Presumably, you'd be able to use just about anything with this patent-pending system, as you'd be moving the "non-luminous" object based on the poses you're doing with it. One image also shows X and Triangle buttons mapped out on different parts of the peel. In addition to the banana--or two bananas--Sony mentions objects such as oranges, mugs, or pens.

I've got a banana I'd like to map my controls to. For testing purposes.

It'll go over about as well as "control pads" do on mobile games, but sounds worse.
