Netflix Cancels Daredevil After Third Season

Netflix Cancels Daredevil After Third Season

Netflix has gone on a tear in the last two months cancelling Marvel TV shows. Initially, Iron Fist's cancellation spurred speculation that Disney was bringing its licenses home to the company's own streaming services. At the time, Netflix tried to assuage fears by saying those shows won't be going away until they themselves decide so. Two days after that, Luke Cage got cancelled, and now it appears Daredevil has had the axe lowered on to it.

According to Deadline, the show about the blind superhero in Hell's Kitchen won't be renewed for a fourth season, despite critical acclaim for the most recent batch of episodes. 

“While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel," Netflix told Deadline, indicating that Daredevil is ripe for a revival on Disney's own service. Considering Matt Murdock's crossover with the rest of New York's more well-known superheroes in the Marvel comics, he could even be a good candidate to graduate to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades Delayed To 2019

At E3 this past year, Bethesda sandwiched a display of their newest mobile title between Fallout 76 and announcements of future projects. While the placement seemed to try and couch the announcement in the best possible light, Bethesda Games Studios director Todd Howard spent a lot of time showing off the game to present it as a full-featured Elder Scrolls title set to come out in 2018. On the last note at least, Bethesda is moving the mark.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades will release in Early 2019 for iOS and Android devices. We are incredibly excited for you to play Blades and you can still sign up for Early Access at https://t.co/uuFPob6YWJ.

While full-featured, the open world aspect The Elder Scrolls games have been known for is damped down considerably for a more digestible experience. The Elder Scrolls: Blades is also meant to be controlled entirely with one hand using gestures to control all the actions.

Borderlands 2 VR Exclusive To PlayStation 4 For Minimum Five Months

It wasn't that long ago that Gearbox announced a special VR version of Borderlands 2, eschewing multiplayer in favor of new virtual reality experiences and changes. The port was announced on Sony's PlayStation blog, though it was assumed that Borderlands 2 VR would eventually come to PC as well. It now seems that "eventually" has a time frame of at least five months.

The news comes from a commercial for the VR version of Borderlands 2, mostly made of simulated footage. At the end of the commercial, a message at the bottom declares "Borderlands 2 VR is exclusive to PSVR for a minimum of five months from launch."

This means that competing headsets like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive won't be getting the game until late April at the earliest. The game supports a number of different control schemes, including both motion controls and a standard controller, as well as a different types of locomotion. Players can teleport around or maintain direct control or combine both.
