Bungie says

Following recent reports that Sony is refusing to approve any statements from PlayStation studios relating to reproductive rights, Bungie - whose acquisition by Sony was announced in February - has said "there will never be a 'muzzle' big enough to stop us from standing up for what's right".

Bungie was one of the first studios to speak out in support of Roe v Wade, a key judgement which legalised abortion across the US, following recent reports the US Supreme Court was trying to overturn the ruling. At the time, the developer called the move a "direct attack on human rights", adding that "standing up for reproductive choice and liberty is not a difficult decision to make, and Bungie remains dedicated to upholding these values".

However, in light of reports that Sony is refusing to authorise any public statements its PlayStation studios might want to make around the issue of reproductive rights, some Bungie fans have questioned whether the developer will still be able to express its opinion so freely once its acquisition by Sony is complete.

Rumor: Three New Silent Hill Games in the Works

It’s been 12 years since the release of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories launched on Nintendo Wii. In the years since, the series has popped up on other platforms, most infamously Hideo Kojima and Gillermo del Toro’s beloved P.T. (playable teaser), a prelude to the duo’s canceled Silent Hills project. Now, after years lying in virtual dormancy, rumors have begun swirling that Konami is prepping a whopping three Silent Hill projects.

According to VGC, the projects entail a proper sequel in the series is in the works for current-gen hardware, a remake of Silent Hill 2, and a smaller scale episodic experience. That latter project might be the most likely to come to Switch given the console’s relative lack of processing power compared to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Take all of this with a grain of salt as nothing has been confirmed, but it’s been so long since Silent Hill has been a proper franchise that fans will likely take whatever they can get at this point.

Mutant Year Zero dev unveils tactical RPG Miasma Chronicles, out next year

Developer The Bearded Ladies, the studio behind 2018's acclaimed turn-based strategy adventure Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, has unveiled Miasma Chronicles - a new tactical RPG that's heading to PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PS5 some time next year.

Miasma Chronicles unfolds in a United States torn apart by a savage force known only as the Miasma, some time in the "not-too-distant future". Here, in the mining town of Sedentary, we meet our protagonist, Elvis, a young man that raised by a robotic older ‘brother’ after being left by his mother.

Elvis, for reasons both unknown and extremely convenient as far as gameplay goes, has access to a mysterious glove that enables him to control Miasma - a device that'll almost certainly prove useful as the brothers set out across the post-apocalyptic wasteland in search of answers that might "change the course of human history forever."
