Titanfall Developer Respawn Might Have Multiple Games For 2019

During a quarterly earnings call today, EA has announced that their newly-acquired studio Respawn will be shipping games, plural, before the end of 2019. It is unclear whether that means multiple titles or it was an accidental slip of the tongue, but it is not unreasonable.

"Across multiple studies, we have new projects underway, including games from Respawn that are slated to launch by next holiday season," EA CEO Andrew Wilson said on the call.

Three publicly announced projects are currently in the works at Respawn. At last year's Oculus Connect, the Facebook-owned company announced a partnership with Respawn for a new VR game that was not either Titanfall or Star Wars. In the intervening time since, Electronic Arts acquired Respawn as an internal studio, but acknowledged that the Oculus deal was still proceeding. At the time of acquisition, EA tried to reassure concerned fans by confirmed that Titanfall 3 was in development. Finally, at E3 this year, Respawn CEO Vince Zampella confirmed a Star Wars title named Jedi Fallen Order, with a target date of holiday 2019.

Bethesda Warns Of Fallout 76 Glitches, Like Deleting Entire Client

The first beta for non-Xbox One only players for Fallout 76 is going on right now and it's been a bit of a hair-on-fire situation for Bethesda. While the publisher warned that there may be some bugs in the pre-order beta for the game, the Bethesda support Twitter account has definitely made it seem like things aren't entirely under their control.

Apple Claims That New Ipad Is As Graphically Powerful As Xbox One S

At an Apple event today, the Cupertino-based technology company behind many of the world's most ubiquitous devices revealed new iterations of those devices, including a new iPad model. The new iPad Pro was shown off on stage, with vice president of hardware engineering John Ternus making comparisons to modern consoles for the tablet device.

"To put it another way," Ternus said while the slide on the screen behind him changed to show a picture of Microsoft's white Xbox One S, "the iPad Pro delivers Xbox One S-class graphics performance in a product that's 94% smaller." Amid the applause, he adds "And there's no AC cord required."

When Microsoft's gaming chief Phil Spencer was pinged on Twitter about the comment, he was definitely encouraging of a future where mobile devices can play with consoles.

Ubisoft Adapting Child Of Light And Werewolves Within For TV And Film

Ubisoft Adapting Child Of Light And Werewolves Within For TV And Film

Ubisoft is pursuing adaptations for two of its properties, the Ubi-Art RPG Child of Light and Werewolves Within, according to a report by Variety. The deal would adapt the rhyming RPG as a television series and the social werewolf-accusing game as a movie.

Child of Light makes a lot of sense as a TV show and was greenlit when writers Mishna Wolff and Tasha Huo were given the ability to look through Ubisoft's properties for things to adapt. They brought the idea of Child of Light to Ubisoft Motion Pictures, the company in charge of producing and licensing Ubisoft properties for multimedia projects, and were set.

Werewolves Within is a multiplayer game where players play with their friends and try to figure out which of them is a werewolf. You might know this as a game that has existed forever called general social game Werewolf, but Ubisoft adapted it into a video game form, and is now making a movie.

Blizzard Teases Possibility Of Diablo Amiibo

Blizzard Teases Possibility Of Diablo Amiibo

With Diablo III coming to Switch, everyone has heard for months in what ways Blizzard was choosing to adapt the game to the Nintendo console's strengths. Aside from the various Zelda cosmetic items and the portability, the Switch version also has amiibo support, which the game shows the player how to do in a tutorial.

The tutorial screen shows players where to place the amiibo on the Joycon or the Pro Controller, but rather than use a generic amiibo like Mario, as is typically done, Diablo III shows a Treasure Goblin from the game on an amiibo stand. It definitely seems odd to bother with making unique art for the amiibo in the tutorial when they could have simply used an image of, say, Ganondorf.

A post on Reddit yesterday suggested that, after datamining, hints were discovered in the game that point to three unique Diablo amiibo, including the Treasure Goblin shown in the tutorial image. Considering the game releases the same day as the start of Blizzcon this Friday, it seems like a good place for the company to announce or reveal some Diablo-specific toys, as well.

High-Flying Action Game Just Cause 4 Has Gone Gold

It's been a fairly silent ride for Square Enix and Just Cause 4, the latest adventure for protagonist Rico Rodriguez which was revealed just before E3 earlier this year. We have liked what we've played of the newest tornado-riding Just Cause game, however, and it seems Square Enix is on schedule to keep to the game's December release by printing the final disc today.

We are pleased to announce that #JustCause4 has GONE GOLD for its worldwide release on December 4th

Rumor: Castlevania Netflix Producer To Adapt The Legend Of Zelda

Last week, Netflix released the second season of its Castlevania series, an animated adaptation of the third game in the series. If you haven't watched it, it's really good, though the pacing kind of builds to a cathartic climax almost to a fault.

Now, Castlevania showrunner and producer Adi Shankar is hinting that he has another video game adaptation to bring to life and rumors are swirling that it might be The Legend of Zelda. In an Instagram post last night, Shankar left a bit of ambiguity to what the series might be, but was pretty clear that something game-related will be revealed soon.

The success of Castlevania created this opportunity.
