Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, And Watch Dogs: Legion Delayed

During Ubisoft's financial earnings call, the publisher announced that it will be delaying Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Watch Dogs: Legion to the 2020-2021 fiscal year.

Ubisoft's CEO and Co-Founder Yves Guillemot stated that the reason for the delays was to give each developer more time to craft its vision of each game. 

While not explicitly stated, the delays may stem from the company's recent troubles with Ghost Recon Breakpoint. According to the call, Breakpoint has failed to meet sales expectations and the company largely blames not giving the game enough time to differentiate itself from previous entries.

The Last Of Us Part II Delayed Until May

Neil Druckmann has confirmed that The Last of Us Part II will not meet its original February 21 release. In a post on the PlayStation blog, Druckmann announced the game’s new release date: May 29. 

Despite the “blowout” announcement during last month’s State of Play, The Last of Us Part II may not be as finished as Naughty Dog originally hoped. In his post, Druckmann states, “We realized we simply didn’t have enough time to bring the entire game up to a level of polish we would call Naughty Dog quality.”

This may disappointment many fans but there’s consolation in knowing the final game won’t cut any corners.

Conan O'Brien Wants To Turn You Into An Otter In Death Stranding

"What the hell is going on?" Thoughts like this creep into my mind whenever I watch new Death Stranding trailers and gameplay videos. Don't take that as a bad thing, per se. Hideo Kojima delivering wild ideas is nothing new, and he usually knocks them out of the park. That said, I am worried about playing the role of a science-fiction Fed Ex delivery person. We'll have to see how that idea plays out.

The latest head-scratching Death Stranding content comes from Kojima's Twitter feed, where he debuts a new character named The Wandering MC, who just happens to be played by famed talk show host Conan O'Brien. After a brief conversation with O'Brien, Sam is gifted an otter hat that allows him to swim like an otter. Check out the video below to see this madness for yourself, and let us know your thoughts on Death Stranding, which releases on PlayStation 4 on November 8.

Conan O'Brien appears as a prepper “The Wondering MC” in DS. You get “Sea Otter Suit” when you get connected with him. With this suit, you’ll be able to swim easily in the river, you won’t be drifted away! BB would be happy as well.

Insomniac's Spider-Man Is Now A $1,100 Statue

Sideshow and PCS Collectibles have created the ultimate item for fans of the game. Standing in at 24-inches in height, the Spider-Man Advanced Suit statue can be yours for just $1,100. Sideshow is creating two different versions: an "exclusive" one that comes with a flexible web, and the "standard" edition that doesn't have it.

Spider-Man is the focus, but the base he is leaping from holds the demonic imagery of Mister Negative, one of the foes he squared off against in the game. The Advanced Suit was created by Insomniac and has become one of the more popular looks for this iconic character, appearing on numerous comic book covers and collectibles since the game's launch.

Sideshow estimates the statue will ship between January and March of 2021.
