Games And Remakes On The Horizon

Rebellion Purchases The Bitmap Brothers’ Portfolio

Rebellion, the studio behind Strange Brigade and the Sniper Elite series, has acquired the game portfolio of The Bitmap Brothers, a British game development studio with titles dating back to the 90’s, like The Chaos Engine, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, and Gods.

Waiting With Baited Breath

Stardew Valley Multiplayer Live Across All Consoles

Stardew Valley has finally resolved the issues prolonging the multiplayer from reaching Xbox One, meaning, as sole-developer Eric Barone wrote, “The most recent big news is that XBOX and PS4 now both have the 1.3 multiplayer update, bringing all platforms (except VITA) into parity with one another.” Further, Barone announced his plans to continue development in what he calls additional “polish” such as removing odd bugs, fully fleshing out features, and making sure the game runs as intended across all consoles.

Developer Changes Stance On Free DLC Amid Financial Hardships

PAYDAY 2 To Continue With Paid DLC And Some Free Content

In a quick but drastic shift, Starbreeze has declared it will continue development on 2013’s PAYDAY 2 through both free and paid content, which is in direct contrast to their previous ideology of winding down support for the title and providing any future content for free as part of their “Ultimate Edition” of the game.

Ghost Recon To Receive Support And Repairs

Ubisoft Lays Out Roadmap For Ghost Recon Breakpoint Content And Updates

The Ghost Recon series goes back to 2001, but due to lackluster sales of the most recent entry in the series, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft has been prompted to reevaluate their development and support for the series. While the previous entry, 2017’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, currently holds a score of 79 on Metacritic and received critical praise, Ubisoft may have been a bit too eager to put out a sequel to a “live” game that was receiving new content into this current year. Yves Guillemot, CEO and co-founder of Ubisoft, even highlighted this in a recent financial update to investors.. In response to the lackluster review and sale combination, Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon development team issued a lengthy statement laying out the new support plan.
