So, for a little while at least, there was a plan for Daybreak's Dimension Ink studio (DC Universe Online) to develop an MMO based on the Marvel universe. That game, whatever it was called and however it was shaping up, has now been cancelled.

To follow Halo Infinite closely is to subject yourself to constant emotional whiplash. One day it's on the top of the charts. The next, it feels like all of social media is calling it a "dead game." Or maybe the developer adds a ton of cool stuff to the game…and then breaks a ton of other cool stuff…and then un-breaks…

Developer CD Projekt Red has a few irons in the fire at the moment, but the bulk of its developers are currently working on the Cyberpunk 2077 expansion, which is currently slated for a release date in 2023. The expansion has engaged an increasing share of the studio's developers since Cyberpunk 2077 launched in December 2020.
According to CD Projekt's latest investor relations presentation, about half of the development studio's staff are currently working on the upcoming expansion for Cyberpunk 2077. In the current breakdown, about a fifth of the developers are working on 'other projects,' which include a 'new game in The Witcher IP'. We've already heard a little about that one: it's The Witcher 4, the start of a "new saga" featuring the School of the Lynx, and it's being built in Unreal Engine 5.
Smaller segments of the studio are currently dedicated to 'Gwent-related projects,' the group's mobile games studio Spokko, continued support for Cyberpunk 2077 and its next-gen console versions, a new project with The Molasses Flood, and the next-gen version of The Witcher 3.Cyberpunk 2077 review, Cyberpunk 2077 lore & universe, Buy Cyberpunk 2077

A group of 'dozens' of current and former workers at Microsoft - which is closing on a deal to buy embattled games publisher Activision Blizzard - have accused a group of top-level executives of workplace misconduct, a pattern they say has persisted for years at the tech company. The employees claim these executives verbally abused workers, downplayed the contributions of women, and rarely addressed concerns raised by staff.
Business Insider reports that the employees have alleged that former executive vice president Terry Myerson, HoloLens lead developer Alex Kipman, and Product and Engineering head Tom Keane have each contributed to a hostile work environment at Microsoft, and rarely faced any administrative action when complaints have been filed against them.
We reached out to Microsoft about the allegations, and a company spokesperson tells us they are unaware of any specific reports about the behaviour detailed in the report. "Microsoft is deeply invested in all aspects of our culture and employee experience, which includes ensuring employees have clear opportunities to voice any concerns they have about workplace behaviour," the spokesperson says.Microsoft DirectX Raytracing, Microsoft Hololens hands-on, Windows Game Mode preview

The Diablo Immortal release time is just about upon us. The action RPG game was initially planned as a mobile-only entry in the venerable Diablo series, but Blizzard announced in April that a PC open beta was coming, too - and that it would launch alongside the mobile version.
Now that the Diablo Immortal release date is nigh, Blizzard has announced the global launch times as well. Due to the way mobile games are published and made available on various platforms' marketplaces, some users may see the app show up early, starting on the morning of June 1. Most will see it arrive at some point on June 2, although for certain time zones in Asia and Australia, that'll translate to June 3.
You can preload Diablo Immortal now, however. On PC, you'll find it in the Battle.net app. You'll probably see a splash screen pop up when you launch the app that takes you directly to the Diablo Immortal page, but if that doesn't happen for some reason, select the 'Games' tab, then find the Diablo Immortal tile, and click the install button.

People will have a second chance to get Nendoroids of the Konosuba characters. Good Smile Company announced it will once again offer the Aqua, Darkness, Kazuma, Megumin, and Yunyun figures. In the case of Kazuma and Yunyun, this is the first time they've returned since their 2018 debuts. Meanwhile, this is the fourth time Aqua will be rereleased. Most of them are ¥5,900/$53.99. However, Megumin is slightly more expensive at ¥6,100/$55.99.
As one might expect, each of these Konosuba Nendoroids come with the same items they did the first time around. Each one has three face plates. Everyone has their signature weapon. In the case of Megumin, you also get some magic effect parts and an eyepatch. Aqua, Darkness, and Megumin come with special bases as a Good Smile Company store pre-order bonus. Kazuma's pre-order bonus is a folded jersey he can carry. Yunyun's is a pair of bunny ears.
Here are some photos of the figures, including a few official ones of them with other Nendoroids in the cast.
This comes about a year after the debut of some accessories for these figures. Back in September 2021, Good Smile Company added the Konosuba characters Aqua, Darkness, and Megumin to the Swacchao Nendoroid line. This meant people could get sitting versions of the cast members compatible with their past Nendoroid releases.
The Konosuba Nendoroids of the characters Aqua, Darkness, Kazuma, Megumin, and Yunyun will be out in October 2022 in Japan and December 2022 in North America. Pre-orders are open for them until July 6, 2022.

It turns out that AMD Radeon 7000 Series graphics cards might just feature DisplayPort 2.0 support. Twitter user Kepler_L2 recently posted a link to an AMD driver patch that references support for the new UHBR20 standard associated to DisplayPort 2.0. This will enable data throughput up to 80 Gbps, allowing for higher resolution gaming at higher framerates. When most gamers think of image quality and how to get the best framerates, they likely think of hardware first. But all hardware needs to go through cables to reach your display, where you see images at certain framerates. As the hardware continues to get better and become capable of supporting higher framerates and resolutions, so too must the cabling evolve to deliver all of that information on time. What makes DisplayPort 2.0 such a big deal is that it will more than double the throughput of today's DisplayPort 1.4a spec of 32.4Gbps. It'll also blow the HDMI 2.1 spec out of the water, which tops out at 48 Gbps...

Back in 2019, developer Creepy Jar released Green Hell, a survival game that sees players within the beautiful, yet unforgiving Amazon rainforest. It performed well enough both critically and commercially to warrant the developers expanding on the game's premise, and they did so through the Spirits of Amazonia expansion as well as the Incuvo-developed VR version. The latter of which came out on the Quest 2 back in April. Now, the upcoming Steam version of Green Hell VR is on the way, promising to substantially build upon the gameplay found in the Quest 2 version. Plenty of players enjoyed Green Hell VR overall. However, it did streamline the original experience to a significant extent, which may have disappointed some who hoped for a more direct translation. According to a press release, Green Hell VR on Steam brings more to the fold. It'll implement "a wider terrain to explore, higher graphic fidelity, and different UI and mechanics" to provide R...

The listing hints that Returnal may the next PlayStation "exclusive" heading to PC. Sony has brought a handful of its first-party games to PC so far. Horizon Zero Dawn, and God of War are the two best-selling PC ports for the company. As of March 2022, Horizon Zero Dawn has over 2 million copies sold on PC. Originally revealed in a possible leak from GeForce Now, there have been prior reports of PC ports that have come to light in past months. The SteamDB listing is under the title Oregon. The listing for Oregon is classified under 16 categories, the main ones being bullet hell, sci-fi, and rogue-like. These all lend to the idea this title is Returnal. More so than the categories listed, the mention of "Tower of Sisyphus" and "Atropos" are direct references to the Returnal world. Atropos is the name of the planet where the game...

Update 1.19 has been sitting pretty as a Minecraft snapshot, or pre-release. It has seen three versions, all of which brought changes and fixes. But, in a couple short weeks, it'll all come together as an official launch. The Wild update was first shown off all the way back during Minecraft Live 2021.

In the last few years, the PC gaming market has seen a resurgence of players and enthusiasts. Whether that's because of the hardware sector, with more GPU brands and iterations than you can shake a stick at, or the sheer amount of titles available, the market continues to flourish. That's one reason Sony may be banking on the PC gaming market, literally. A new report suggests that the company will continue pushing its first-party titles out to mouse and keyboard gamers with the expectation of making upwards of $300 million from PC games. If you were to ask someone a decade ago if Sony would bring its PlayStation titles to PC, they probably would have laughed in your face. However, the company has shown that it's more than just engaged with PC gamers; it's all in on them. The recent reports come from Sony's quarterly financial briefings regarding its future in gaming.
