Quantum Break Is Also Coming To PC!
Remedy Entertainment‘s latest adventure will be coming to Windows on April 5th, the same release date as the Xbox One version. It is not yet known whether or not this was developed in-house or if Remedy shipped the port out to another studio. It does demonstrate Microsoft’s commitment for more Xbox games to come to PC — ReCore, Scalebound and Fable Legends will all be getting a Windows release. As part of today’s announcement was confirmation that the Xbox One version of Quantum Break will come with a download code for Remedy’s last game, Alan Wake. Apparently people on the internet are getting angry that the game is now coming to more than one platform?! Of all the things for people to get angry about, I feel this is right up there with the most pathetic. This is a good thing people! If more people have access to the game it increases the potential for sales, and the more units sold the more money the studio makes, which in turn will help fund future projects! Get over yourself, I’m almost embarrassed to be associated with these so called Xbox “fans.” I am very happy that Remedy has decided to include Alan Wake in the Xbox One bundle, I never had a chance to play the game last time round.
Titanfall 2 has been in the news recently when it was confirmed that the game would have a single-player campaign. Now, according to McFarlane Toys, the game will be releasing in winter 2016. The toy company made the comment in a press release where it was announced that they have partnered with Respawn Entertainment to deliver seven inch figures that will feature “the same meticulous level of detail that McFarlane has become known for over the last two decades.” Todd McFarlane — founder of McFarlane Toys — described the partnership as “a perfect fit.” It will be interesting to see if this report is true, it would conflict with my earlier thoughts after EA‘s latest earning report.
I keep saying that 2016 is the year of VR but today there was some news that could be disconcerting for Sony fans. Dave Ranyard, one of Son’y leading developers on PlayStation VR, has left the company after 17 years. According to Gamasutra, Ranyard was head of Sony London Studio: the studio behind The London Heist. While stating that it was a “tough decision” to leave, Ranyard said:
“2016 is going to be the year of VR, so it’s the perfect time for me to take this step into independent development. The emergence of a new medium like VR doesn’t come along very often and I really want to be a part of this new world.”
I like the cut of this man’s jib! I can’t very much understand his desire to go independent, and the likelihood is he will still work on a PlayStation VR title anyway so hopefully us gamers won’t lose out.
It has been two years since we saw Telltale‘s The Walking Dead: Season Two and it appears that we will have to keep waiting for Season Three. Luckily fans of the universe won’t have to wait long for the Michonne spin-off as Telltale has announced that Episode One will release on February 23rd. Titled In Too Deep, the episode will follow Michonne as she joins up with Pete and his squad on a ship named The Companion as sail the coast searching for survivors. In Too Deep will be the first of three episodes coming in this new miniseries. My interest is king of waning on Telltale games right now, I think I will wait until the Batman series arrives!
