Oh hey there. It's another WRUP day.
Looks like EA will no longer be the only developer for Star Wars games. Which may seem like good news until you learn that Ubisoft is said to be taking the reigns for a new open world Star Wars title. So if you were hoping for less monetization, well... Don't hold your breath. That doesn't mean the game won't be good or fun, but I hope they look more toward the AC Valhalla, kind of open world than say, a Far Cry one. The differences are subtle but enough to make things less like -climb radio tower, liberate village, repeat. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
It seems like Cyberpunk 2077 is still making news. Whether it's a target for a take over now or hearing about huge fines related to equally huge murals, it's not all good either. But the way CDP Red have handled the refunds given to folks unhappy with the game has been a little stroke of positivity, including how it's affected other's views on the subject as a whole. I'll post a little link here so you can read about what legendary game director, Masahiro Sakurai, of Kirby, Smash Brothers and Kid Icarus, has to say about it.
Bethesda and Machine Games look to be working on an Indiana Jones video game. Not a lot is known yet, just that Todd Howard is the lead and it involves Lucasfilm Games directly and that it will be an original story. Not sure what I think about this yet, personally. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a Fallout 76 trash fire. But it could, just possibly, be a fun Tomb Raider / Uncharted style of game and that I would on board with. Read more about that here.
