Call Of Duty WW2 Boss Says He Pitched Activision A New IP And They Said No

about X hours ago from

A former Activision creative higher-up pitched the company on a new IP, but the Call of Duty publisher didn't go for it. Glen Schofield, the Dead Space co-creator who later established Call of Duty: WWII studio Sledgehammer Games, spoke about this in a new interview for what appears to be the first time.

"Did a little prototype for them--they didn't go for it, but they should have," Schofield told Game Informer.

Schofield pitched this new game--which he didn't share any more details on--after he left Sledgehammer to take a position at Activision HQ. Sledgehammer's other founder, Michael Condrey, moved to Activision corporate as well. Schofield teased that Condrey was working on "something" for Activision, while he was spending his own time working on "new game ideas."

34 Random Avengers: Infinity War Thoughts Before Endgame


Did you know it's been nearly a year since Avengers: Infinity War hit theaters, crushing all of our spirits as we watched our favorite superheroes turn to dust? Now, 11 months later, we are ready to see the conclusion of that particular story in Avengers: Endgame, which will hopefully bring them all back to life and allow them to live happily ever after.

Ahead of that movie's release, though, I went back and watched Infinity War through a new lens. Now I know how the movie plays out, so I was able to pay attention to details--all of them. In viewing, a number of things occured to me, some of which I've been wondering since my first time watching a year ago, and some that only popped up in my brain now.

So follow along as I take you on a tour of my brain while watching Avengers: Infinity War a year removed from its release. From the feasibility of Tony Stark's nanotech to the details on space farming, here's everything I wondered about on my latest rewatch, while preparing to see Endgame. For an even deeper dive into the Avengers, make sure to take a look at what we've learned about the team and its unofficial leader Nick Fury, thanks to Captain Marvel.

Remedy's Upcoming Supernatural Thriller, Control, Is Scheduled For This Summer

about X hours ago from

Control, an upcoming game by developer Remedy, is scheduled to come out this year, more specifically this summer. The tease was included in an interview for the cover story in the most recent issue of Game Informer magazine, with the rest of the article detailing the abilities that Control's protagonist has at her disposal.

In Control, you play as Jesse Faden, a woman with supernatural abilities. At the game's start, Jesse breaks into the Federal Bureau of Control--a fictional government agency that researches ways to explain and exploit paranormal phenomenon--in order to discover the truth about the origin of her powers. Her infiltration, however, runs into a snag, and she's suddenly thrust into a fight to protect the Bureau as its new director.

The Entire Devil May Cry Anime Series Is Now Free On PSN (US)

about X hours ago from

Whether you're already deep into Devil May Cry 5, which just released on March 8, or haven't had a chance to pick up the latest game, you may find this news exciting: Devil May Cry: The Animated Series is currently available for free from the PlayStation Store.

If you're thinking, I didn't even know Devil May Cry had an anime, here's a quick catch-up: The DMC anime released in Japan in 2007 and consists of 12 episodes. Set between the events of Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 2, the anime follows devil hunter Dante, who's running his business and taking odd jobs while struggling with crippling debt. The show also introduces two regular characters: J.D. Morrison, Dante's agent who brings him job requests, and Patty Lowell, an orphan girl Dante rescues who becomes like a daughter to him. Morrison makes his first appearance in the video game series with Devil May Cry 5, so you'll have to watch the anime to understand his full backstory with Dante.

The DMC anime is available to purchase and watch for free in the PlayStation store right now, but you can only access it through your PS4, rather than the web store. The deal also appears to be limited to the North American store (although some people on Reddit have commented that it's not free for them in Canada).

Which Avengers Know Coulson Lives? Clark Gregg Has Some Thoughts

about X hours ago from

Agent Coulson is a bit of an anomaly in the MCU as one of the few characters who straddle the line between the movie and TV sides of the universe--two worlds that don't always play well with one another. Captain Marvel gives us a chance to see the SHIELD back on the big screen for the first time since his "death" in The Avengers back in 2012.

The death thing is a little complicated, though. While Coulson did genuinely die on screen in 2012's Avengers, he was resurrected by Fury over on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, where he began leading a team of SHIELD agents in secret for five-plus seasons, all of which tangentially relate to the movies but never really intersect. Now, thanks to Captain Marvel, we know that not only did the core Avengers team know Coulson during his big screen days, but Carol Danvers did as well, if only briefly--which, begs the question, who on the film side of MCU actually knows Coulson is still alive?

Fortnite Update 8.10 Downtime Set For Tomorrow

Fortnite Update 8.10 Downtime Set For Tomorrow

Like clockwork, Epic is rolling out another update for Fortnite. The developer has confirmed the game's 8.10 patch will drop on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices on Tuesday, March 12, with downtime set to begin at 2 AM PT / 5 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

As usual, Epic hasn't detailed what's coming in this week's update, although we did get a look at a new vehicle on the way to the game: the Baller. The vehicle was recently spotted in Fortnite's in-game News feed and bears a strong resemblance to a hamster ball, with what looks like a Grappler mounted to the front.

Beyond that, details about the Baller are scarce at the moment, but its description teases that players will be able to use it to "roll through the competition." What makes the Baller particular notable, however, is that it marks the first new vehicle to arrive in Season 8.
