No Joke Needed

Overkill’s The Walking Dead Is… Dead

Last week, Sony began issuing refunds for Overkill’s The Walking Dead as it was said to have been cancelled. Then, in a swift public announcement (via a quick and detail-free tweet) from the game’s publisher, 505 Games, they said the game is not cancelled, just ‘purely postponed’. However, the IP holder of “The Walking Dead”, Skybound Entertainment, has now said that they’ve cancelled their contract with Starbreeze Studios and so the game is officially… dead. (sorry)

After a Year and a Half of Early Access, Epsilon is Cancelled

Serellen has had a rough go at trying to revive the CQB (Close-Quarters Combat) tactical shooter genre. After announcing, kickstarting and releasing Takedown: Red Sabre in late 2013, it was met with a lot of disappointment. Then in late 2015 the team announced a new take on the genre, a game called Epsilon that was released on Steam Early access.

After Delays and "Troubled Development," Scalebound is Cancelled

Without much in the way of explanation or reasoning behind the decision, Microsoft quietly announced yesterday that the four player co-op action title, Scalebound, was cancelled. While the game was shown off at last year's E3, it sounds like delays in development and other issues lead to the publisher and developer Platinum Games parting ways.

Wii U owners can stop expecting the latest Aliens game

Aliens: Colonial Marines Officially Cancelled for Wii U

In news that probably shocks no one, Sega has officially confirmed that the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development. The latest Aliens game, developed by Gearbox and published by Sega, came out mid February of this year on PS3, 360, and PC; however, the promised Wii U version was conspicuously absent from Q1 2013. There was no comment by Sega or Demiurge (the developer in charge of the Wii U port) then about its absence, leading to speculation about the port's cancellation. Today it's official: there's no plans of it ever happening.

PR Lines Get Crossed, No Co-Op Included

DOOM 3: BFG Edition Impressions, Co-Op Correction

Running Co-Optimus is definitely a unique task within this industry.  It's not like other gaming news sites in that it's pretty obvious when you can cover a game.  An Xbox devoted site, for instance, always knows when a game is on the platform.  A racing game fan site knows when a game is about driving cars.  Co-Op though, isn't always cut and dry - and in the world of video game PR  - revealing your game has co-op isn't always in the cards until much later after a game is announced.

Instead of getting a PC port, PC gamers will be getting a F2P game instead

No Ghost Recon Future Soldier for PC; Ghost Recon Online Instead

If you're a PC gamer (and especially if you're an FPS PC gamer), then you're likely familiar with what I like to call Short-End-Of-The-Stick-Console-Portitis. Okay, so I just made that up now, but the heart of the matter is true. With a huge amount of blockbuster titles being developed on the consoles, there's many a time that the PC port versions are lackluster, or downright close to broken. Sometimes these ports are months or years later. Sometimes they just don't come to PC at all.
