HALO_5_GUARDIANS_RELEASE_DATE

As of today Halo 5 Guardians finally has an official release date courtesy of Microsoft themselves. The company announced that the latest installment in their acclaimed shooter series will be making its way to the Xbox One on October 27th. In addition to announcing the release date for the highly anticipated title, the folks over at Microsoft also released two brand new trailers and they’re both pretty badass. Interestingly enough, the company chose not to showcase any new Halo 5 Guardians gameplay and instead gave us a couple of live-action trailers featuring the game’s two main protagonists, Spartan Locke and the good old Master Chief.

The trailers once again confirm that the two characters are not exactly on good terms seeing as how they both want to kill the other guy and all. We already knew that Spartan Locke is searching for Master Chief, but now it seems like Master Chief is searching for Locke as well. So, who’s hunting who here? Both, apparently. The new Halo 5 Guardians trailer are almost identical and they each show one of the characters giving a speech to the other, while the other is laying on the ground and about to get shot.  Details regarding Halo 5 Guardians are still very scarce, especially when it comes to the story. However, the trailers seem to suggest that the game will have alternate endings and only one of the protagonists will live to tell the tale.

I doubt that Microsoft will keep us guessing until October 27th, so expect more details to be revealed in the coming months. Since E3 has traditionally been the company’s go-to place for Halo-related announcements, we should be able to hear more about Halo 5 Guardians and its story at E3 2015. This year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo is scheduled to take place between June 16-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Speculations about the inclusion of The Answer in the latest Persona 3 Reload have been circulating for some time now and seem to be gaining credibility. After being played for some time, new evidence suggests that more SEES action is on the horizon. Caution: Spoilers ahead for Persona 3 Reload!

Completing the game on merciless difficulty will result in Elizabeth from The Velvet Room giving you a cryptic clue, hinting that The Answer is approaching. According to PC Gamer, YouTuber Faz used a cheat engine to reach that stage and record the conversation. Elizabeth delivers players a mysterious message: “At the end of a great trial, the answer illuminates my path.”

The Answer occurs after the events of Persona 3, focusing on the cyborg warrior Aigis in the weeks following the game’s climax and offering around 30 hours of content. Persona 3 Reload feels unfinished until its latest update, which follows the trend of Atlus finding ways to release enhanced versions of their games, like Persona 4 Golden or Persona 5 Royal. Speculations were circulating about The Answer being in development, which aligns with the findings of dataminers. However, an official confirmation is still pending.

Is it possible that we will uncover the answer in Persona 3 Reload? Are you eagerly anticipating it? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Remedy Entertainment has recently revealed that they now have complete ownership of the Control IP, which was previously shared with 505 Games. Remedy allegedly spent 17 million euros for the opportunity; nevertheless, 505 Games will continue as the publisher until 2024 during the transition.

In a recent press release, CEO Tero Virtala mentioned that the company will thoroughly evaluate its options, acknowledging the widespread appeal of the Control franchise among various partners. Furthermore, Virtala shared a quick update on the other ongoing projects now that Alan Wake 2 has been released. “Condor and Control 2 have made significant progress recently, and we anticipate these projects to advance to the next stages of development by the first half of 2024.”

Condor is the codename for Remedy’s multiplayer game set in the Control universe. Control 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the first game, was announced in late 2022 following the developer’s new publishing agreement with 505 Games. The Finnish game studio managed to create a brand-new path for the future at some point in their journey, perhaps as a result of recent successes.

How do you feel about Remedy gaining control of the Control IP from 505 Games? Are you looking forward to what the future holds for the series? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Neil Druckmann, the head of Naughty Dog, is not planning to create games indefinitely

Neil Druckmann, the president of Naughty Dog, believes he may not continue creating video games indefinitely, especially not on the grand scale we’re accustomed to from the renowned creative. He is widely recognized for his contributions to Uncharted and The Last of Us. His positive experience adapting the latter for HBO, combined with a shift in priorities towards family, led him to consider making a significant change.

Druckmann’s reflections were captured in an interview with rapper Logic on his YouTube show, Logically Thinking (thanks to VGC), where he mused, “I guess that I don’t see myself doing this forever at this scale.”. Talking about the importance of spending quality time with one’s children, the subject resonated with the Naughty Dog boss, leading to a thoughtful conversation:

“You mentioned entering a new phase in life where your kids are the top priority, and I can relate because my kids are also my main focus… I understand the value of time and prioritize spending it wisely, especially when others want to share it with me. I’m currently at a stage in my life where I’m contemplating my ultimate goal. When is the right moment to decide to end it?

Druckmann is likely referring to stepping away from AAA game development and studio management to avoid the overwhelming anxiety that comes with those responsibilities, as he mentioned that it can be draining. Managing a large number of people and multiple studios worldwide can be quite overwhelming.

However, he would still need a place to channel all that creativity, and he might not be the only one to fall for Hollywood’s allure: “I can envision myself moving towards something that’s more laid-back and less stressful but still allows me to express my creativity. However, I’ve begun contemplating the number of similar games I have left in me, and it’s not a large quantity.

How many additional projects do you anticipate Neil Druckmann leading? Regardless of the quantity, his impact is expected to endure far into the future as we all eventually depart this world. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
