Sons Of Anarchy Game Officially Announced

In February, Kurt Sutter showed a bit of his outlaw streak by revealing that a game was coming based on his Sons of Anarchy show. At the time, Fox Digital wasn't quite ready to announce anything, and we were left hanging. Today, everyone seems to have their stories straight. Developer Orpheus Interactive has officially announced that Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect will be arriving on mobile devices next year.

The game is being developed with help from another studio, Silverback Games. Together, they'll be telling the story of a previously unknown charter of the Sons MC, with new characters, and a new location.

According to Orpheus, the game is being developed with help from Sutter and his team of writers. Further details are unknown at this time, other than it will be delivered episodically.

In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing today, the company notified the agency of a change in position of longtime employee Larry Probst. Probst joined the company in 1984 and served as EA's executive leader following the departure of former CEO John Riccitiello. Effective January 1, Probst’s role will change from Executive Chairman to Chairman.

Probst was president of the company from 1990 until 1997 and served as CEO from 1991 until 2007. He served as chairman of the board of directors starting in 1994 and became executive chairman in 2013 upon Riccietiello’s departure.

“Larry Probst became an employee of EA again when he stepped in as interim CEO in March 2013," an EA representative told us via email. "He remained in an employee capacity following Andrew Wilson’s appointment as CEO in September 2013 to assist with the CEO transition. He is stepping down as an employee of EA effective January 1, 2015. He remains the chairman of our board and there are no plans for Mr. Probst to step down as Board chairman.”

A storm is coming to DriveClub, and it has nothing to do with the fallout from the game's launch. The 1.08 update (weighing 1.4GB) is out, and it adds dynamic weather, two new tracks, and other improvements.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Delayed Again, Arriving In May

CD Projekt is delaying the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt once more. The title was bumped from this year to February 2015 in March 2014. The latest news puts the game closer to summer.

In a statement from the board of CD Projekt, the developer explains the reason for the longer development cycle. "The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production," the company writes. "Now, nearing the end of our work, we see many details that need to be corrected. When we release the most important game in our studio’s history, we must be absolutely sure that we did everything we could to limit any bugs to a level that will allow you to enjoy the game thoroughly."

The note concludes with an apology to fans and a request for trust. "We set the release date too hastily," CD Projekt says." It’s a hard lesson, one to take to heart for the future. We know what we want to do to make Wild Hunt one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that."
