2K Publishing The Golf Club 2019

2K has announced that it is publishing HB Studios' The Golf Club 2019, which can be purchased digitally for PS4, Xbox One, and PC as of today ($49.99). The game's physical release comes out later this fall.

For 2K this is another move into publishing other developer's sports products (see NBA 2K Playgrounds 2), and this is the Golf Club franchise's third publisher in its ascending career – 2019 features the PGA Tour license for the first time. Developer HB Studios self-published the first title in 2014, with Maximum Games handling last year's title.

2K has not announced the length of its partnership with HB Studios.

Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson has released a statement regarding this weekend's shooting at a Madden tournament in Jacksonville, Florida.

To Our Players and the Gaming Community,

I wanted to share some thoughts about the horrific and senseless act of violence that occurred in Jacksonville at the Madden competitive gaming event.  I know many of us, myself included, are filled with shock and grief. Our teams have been working non-stop to do what we can to respond to this terrible situation.

Comic Subscription App InkyPen Coming To Switch

Comic Subscription App InkyPen Coming To Switch

InkyPen has announced that their subscription comic access/reading service will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. While the reveal trailer, which you can see below, only shows the app being used in handheld mode, the app is also usable on the TV.

The idea behind InkyPen is to offer an $8/month subscription service for access to a library of comics, similar to Netflix or Hulu. The caveat comes from InkyPen not offering big hitters from Marvel and DC, who prefer to leverage their comics for their own services.

InkyPen is hitting the Switch this November, making it the second non-game app to hit the Switch after Hulu last November. If this is the current pace, maybe we can expect Netflix in November 2019.

Former Riot Director Speaks Out About Toxic Culture At League Of Legends Developer

Riot Games has had a rough few weeks of its own making. Earlier this month, Kotaku senior reporter Cecilia D'Anastasio released an exposé of the sexist culture that seemingly pervades the company that built and maintains popular MOBA League of Legends. The story has rocked the industry, prompting more people to come out from within the company to, at minimum, say that Riot can and must do better. Meagan Marie, a former editor at Game Informer, wrote a blog post shortly after to chronicle the six months she spent working at the developer and her hope for "real, meaningful change" at Riot.

Another voice has come out to give their own perspective of Riot's culture by explaining why they left the company. Barry Hawkins, an alumnus of various tech companies and developers like Netflix, Hulu, and Blizzard before entering the role of director of product management at Riot, published a post today titled The Story of Why I Left Riot Games.
