TL;DR


Horizon Forbidden West Gameplay 🤖

Sony showed off 14 mins of gameplay from Horizon Fobidden West, the much-anticipated sequel to 2017's awesomest open-world robot dinosaur-hunting game by Guerrilla.


Far Cry 6 :Political to the core 🚨

Ubisoft has confirmed that FarCry 6 is inherently political, and inspired by real-world historical events that have taken place in Cuba. This runs contrary to what they previously said that the game is not “a political statement about what’s happening in Cuba specifically”.


CD Projekt Red profits take a dip 👇

CD Projekt Red made a profit of 32.487 million zloty, which is down sharply from the 91.979 million zloty that the company made during the January-March period of 2020. Total revenue, however, climbed to 197.632 million zloty for Q1 2021. Cost Of Goods Sold was the likely factor for the dip.


Sony to skip E3 2021 🎮

Sony is skipping E3 for the third year in a row, after 2019 and 2020. Putting on big events is very expensive and gives the same sort of reach that a Twitch or a YouTube gives to reach out to consumers without the massive investment.


EA to reveal new Battlefield 🔫

The official Battlefield Twitter account not-so-subtly hinted that the new Battlefield would be revealed in June. The same Twitter account has now confirmed that June 9th is the date to tune in for.


Nintendo opening a museum 👻

Nintendo just announced plans to take one of its old production facilities in Japan and turn it into the “Nintendo Gallery”, a place to “showcase the many products Nintendo has launched over its history”.
