Respawn Entertainment supposedly got a top secret free-to-play game called Apex Legends in the works. Rumor is that it'll be announced and released this Monday.

It's a mishmash of Titanfall without the mechs with some Overwatch and Blackout mode from Black Ops 4.

Here's a link to the ign article with you wanna read more.

* During a recent interview with Eurogamer, Respawn Entertainment stated they currently have no plans to develop a new game in the Titanfall series. Unofficial reason due to EA ditching development of Titanfall 3 in order to cash-in on the Battle Royal craze instead.
https://www.destructoid.com/nope-res...3-541600.phtml
https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2...-are-no-titans

* EA is currently rumored to be considering plans to remaster Jade Empire or develop a new game in the series based on recent trademark filings.
https://www.destructoid.com/jade-emp...--541534.phtml

* According to Sony's recent fiscal report, PS4 has sold over 91 million consoles since its launch while their Playstation Plus service is currently over 36 million subscribers.

Had Jade Empire but never really got deep into it.

If the rumor is true, I'd grab it again.

They are making TF3. They're just switching it to a new engine since they're not pleased using the Source engine again so close to the next gen of consoles. Apex Legends is their last game using the Source engine. It is not a replacement.

* Microsoft announced they have rebranded their Microsoft Studios division to Xbox Game Studios going forward.
https://www.destructoid.com/microsof...s-541621.phtml

* EA announced Battlefield V failed to meet their sales expectations and put the blame on the game not having its battle royale mode available at launch. Game sold around 7.3 million copies but EA wanted over 8 million in sales by now.

* Based on Capcom's recent fiscal report, the company stated they were happy with the "strong" sales for both Mega Man 11 and X Legacy Collection.
https://www.destructoid.com/mega-man...s-541620.phtml

* Gaming website Screwattack announced they are shutting down and will rebrand themselves as Death Battle Channel due to the immense popularity of their Death Battle series. All legacy Screwattack content will be shifted over to their portal channel on Roster Teeth. On a personal note, I used to write articles for their gaming news for almost 2 years before they shut down their news department in order to focus more towards their Death Battle series.

Late Night News Edition

Despite the complaints and mess EA has made with their handling of the Stars Wars license, it seems Disney isn't that bothered by it and claims to have a "good relationship" with EA.

As long as EA doesn't hurt Disney financially or wreck the Star Wars name, Disney doesn't really care about the status of their games. Also means almost no chance Disney would ditch EA's hold of the license prior to the deal expiring in 2023.

"Over the years, as you know, we’ve tried our hand at self-publishing, we’ve bought companies, we’ve sold companies, we’ve bought developers, we’ve closed developers," Iger said. "And we’ve found over the years that we haven’t been particularly good at the self-publishing side, but we’ve been great at the licensing side which obviously doesn’t require that much allocation of capital."

"Since we’re allocating capital in other directions ... we’ve just decided that the best place for us to be in that space is licensing and not publishing. We’ve had good relationships with some of those we’re licensing to, notably EA and the relationship on the Star Wars properties, and we’re probably going to stay on that side of the business and put our capital elsewhere."

During a recent interview with VG247, Capcom's director Hideaki Itsuno revealed he's pretty much the reason why a new Dragon's Dogma game hasn't been made yet.

Apparently he went to the company's founder one day asking for permission to make either Dragon's Dogma 2 or Devil May Cry 5 and expected the company to make the decision for him. Instead the company was very interested in both ideas and left the decision up to him.

Itsuno felt way more interested in making a new Devil May Cry game which is why DMC 5 got made and not DD 2.

As relayed by Itsuno's translator, "[Tsujimoto] said 'Okay, do whatever you want. Do whichever one you want.' So I thought, alright, y'know what... let's do [Devil May Cry 5]. So we did that."

* For those with a PS+ membership, Sony gave a heads-up that PS3 and Vita games will no longer be offered as monthly freebies after March 8th. This month is the last to feature new offerings from both consoles though.

According to recent report from Bloomberg, Activision Blizzard are currently expected to be laying off hundreds of employees tomorrow.

Official reasons due to the company's stock taking big hits since last October, investors being worried about the loss of the Destiny IP, and notable shakeups in upper management the past few months.

Or a very sweet compensation package if they are actually held accountable.

Activision spent $15 million just on the signing bonus alone for their new CFO.

The most hilarious part is that Activision/Blizzard did better financially than they've ever done. Wasn't good enough I guess.

No company ever hits their expectations anymore because they're all unrealistic. And everyone but the people setting said expectations has to pay.

* According to a couple of developers, Sony's claims of being more open for cross-platform play on the PS4 was pretty much a lie. Also Sony currently dealing with some backlash from developers after recently putting all the blame on them for the lack of cross-platform support on the PS4.
https://www.destructoid.com/did-sony...y-542652.phtml

* THQ Nordic reportedly has recently purchased Warhorse Studios (Kingdom Come: Deliverance devs) to add to their growing pile of studios and former THQ properties.

* Another game in the Zelda series is getting the remake treatment from Nintendo.

So down for that Zelda remake.

Also Sony didn't lie at all about being more open to cross-play. Their previous stance was NO CROSSPLAY FOR YOU. Now they at least let some games do it. It's still bullshit, but it's far better than what it was if you consider cross-play important.

They did in the sense of managing to fool a bunch of developers of being more open to talks and then blaming them for why only 2 games support the feature on the PS4.

CEO of Chucklefish studios pretty much stated Sony never wanted any real talks nor gave them any concrete answer that they were not allowed prior to Wargroove's launch on PS4.

Even the 2 games they approved were mostly due to outside reasons than Sony being sincere about their support. Fortnite had the purchases debacle and Rocket League had the favoritism debacle that left Sony in no position to keep rejecting it.

Apparently Koei Tecmo caused a pretty bad scene during this year's EVO Japan tournament. Caused their portion of the stream from the event to get pulled from Twitch.

Seems EVO officials were not fond of how raunchy Tecmo's segment promoting Dead or Alive 6 was veering towards the longer it kept on going.

Hulk Hogan wannabe Bass Armstrong had performed a pile driver on Nyotengu and the camera was paused at an angle that looked rather sexual. The stream was abruptly pulled during this bit.

Fucking EVO officials apologizing and stating that Tecmo's presentation didn't meet their "core values"

Yet Mortal Kombat will be at EVO, with all it's characters being brutally maimed, decapitated, vivisected, etc, etc. Swear to god, we are the most sexually repressed first world country in existence.
