Here’s the breakdown of the latest news in nerd culture:
Indiana Jones Game in the Works at Bethesda
Bethesda Softworks, the video game development company behind titles such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Dishonored, and Rage, is currently developing an Indiana Jones game. There aren’t many details known about the upcoming game yet, such as a launch date or what platforms it will be on. However, it has been reported that it will include an original story that has not been seen in the films.
It’s safe to expect this game will have similarities to that of Uncharted or Tomb Raider, but we still don’t have any actual information on the game’s mechanics. Nonetheless, fans of those existing treasure-hunting games or the Indiana Jones film franchise might have a lot to be excited about.
Star Wars Video Games to be Branded Under Lucasfilm Games Banner
It appears that the exclusivity deal with EA is at an end, and Star Wars games will now all be made under Lucasfilm Games. This will work similarly to PlayStation Studios, which groups multiple developers under a single banner. This name is actually a return for the Lucasfilm Games brand, which originally ran throughout the 1980s until being rebranded as LucasArts in 1990.
As a result, Ubisoft has announced they are currently developing an open world Star Wars game using the same engine they use for The Division series. We can now expect to see a wider variety of Star Wars games in the coming future.
The Killzone Website Has Been Retired
The official website for the Killzone video game franchise has been retired. Soon, those who attempt to visit the site will be redirected to PlayStation.com instead. This change isn’t going to affect any of the online multiplayer modes, player statistics, or ranking data for Killzone Mercenary or Killzone Shadowfall. However, it will no longer be possible to create or manage clans in Killzone Shadowfall.
This has fans concerned about the future of the Killzone video game series. Killzone is developed by Guerilla Games, which has now moved on to the Horizon franchise, further causing concern for Killzone’s unknown future.
Deadpool 3 Confirmed to be in the MCU and Rated R
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has recently revealed that Deadpool 3 is officially in development and is planned to be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, this will not affect the R rating that the previous two films have had.
Ryan Reynolds, the star of the Deadpool films, is currently working on a script for the sequel. This will mean an MCU movie will have more mature content than the rest, and should ease any concerns about Disney toning down the type of content Deadpool has become known for.
