  2. Peter Sollett has been tapped to direct Warner Bros. film adaptation of Minecraft. According to Variety, Sollett, whose previous projects include Raising Victor Vargas, Freeheld, and Five Feet High and Rising, will serve as both writer and director on the film. Roy Lee, Jon Berg, and Minecraft's development studio Mojang are set to produce, and Jon Spaihts will serve as executive producer. Warner Bros. acquired the rights to make a Minecraft film back in 2014, and last year the film was delayed after Rob McElhenney, who was set to direct, left the project. Steve Carell was also in talks to star in the film but, according to Variety, scheduling issues arose, and he departed the project as well. Continue reading… View the full article

  5. Verizon is in the process of alpha testing its Verizon Gaming streaming service that is already running on the Nvidia Shield set-top box and could eventually make its way to Android smartphones. As reported by The Verge, this new initiative will potentially allow players to play such games as Far Cry 5, Battlefield V, and Destiny 2 on their mobile devices. The screenshots that showed the previously mentioned titles also showed PS4 exclusive God of War and PC port-less Red Dead Redemption 2, so these games may just be placeholders.

  6. A Final Destination reboot is on the way, and two of the Saw franchise writers are reportedly at the helm. According to THR, New Line Cinema wants the latest Final Destination film to be a reimagining of the series. Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who wrote Saw IV through Saw 3D, will be writing the script for the sixth installment. No plot details have been revealed as of yet.

  7. Head of the Gears of War franchise Rod Fergusson has confirmed that rapper Drake and actress Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, The Riches) were both nearly voice actors for Jace Stratton and Samantha Byrne in Gears of War 3. Initially revealed in a Twitter thread that revolved around memorable video game quotes, Tony Rowe, a tester on the game Jurassic Park: Trespasser, said he remembered a cut line in that game where Driver said “They should’ve sent a policeman or a ninja.” After Driver was tagged in the tweet, she came in to respond to Trespasser producer Seamus Blackley, asking why shy was fired from Gears of War. Fergusson and Cliff Bleszinski quickly hopped on the tread thereafter confirming she was, in fact, once involved with Gears 3. Continue reading… View the full article

  10. Update: Randy Pitchford has publicly alluded to the lawsuits following Kotaku's original story, while Gearbox itself has offered an official statement. In a series of tweets posted this afternoon, Pitchford said "The attacks made by my former friend and colleague have no basis in reality or law. He is simply trying to shake me down for money," while Gearbox's statement reveals the company is filing a grievance in Texas against Wade Callender. Gearbox's full statement to Kotaku reads: Gearbox will be filing a grievance with the State Bar of Texas against our former general counsel Wade for disciplinary proceedings for filing a lawsuit that includes accusations that he knows to be untrue. The lawyer’s rules of professional conduct expressly prohibit the filing of documents that are knowingly false. The tell is within Wade’s claim itself – his use of hedged lawyer language and clever application of quotation marks betray that he knows that the impression he is trying to create is based in lies. We imagine that he used the quotation marks and lawyer language in hopes that will give him some angles of defense when we inevitably take action against him for false statements. Wade is engaged in a shakedown and he’s clearly using deceit and lies to try to cause damage by promoting a narrative that he knows is false. Continue reading… View the full article
  11. While Sony revealed strong sales numbers for the PlayStation 4 over the 2018 holiday, rumors and discussion of the next generation have already begun. But what can the next set of consoles really do to define itself as distinct from the current crop of systems? On IGN's weekly PlayStation show, Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush, along with panelists Lucy O'Brien and Brian Altano, discuss what they'd like to see from the PlayStation 5. Watch the clip above as the trio discusses what sort of leap, if not a graphical one, the PS5 could make from the PS4 to interest us, and how the system can learn both from the PS4 and the Xbox One, with the latter's backward compatibility and Xbox Game Pass.

As reported by THR, Chooseco, LLC, who owns the previously mentioned trademark, filed a lawsuit in Vermont federal court today and said that while it and Netflix had been in "extensive negotiations that were ongoing for a number of years," the streaming company was never granted a license to use its trademark.

  13. Without the backing of Activision, my immediate response was that the industry-rattling divorce between Activision and Bungie may be great for the future of the Destiny franchise. The studio seems happy, based on the inside-sourced tweets from Kotaku’s Jason Schreier. But while Activision was labeled the big bad for many, they did add a lot of support that is now gone. “We know self-publishing won’t be easy,” Bungie said in a company statement. “There’s still much for us to learn as we grow as an independent, global studio, but we see unbounded opportunities and potential in Destiny. We know that new adventures await us all on new worlds filled with mystery, adventure, and hope. We hope you’ll join us there.” While it’s wonderful that Bungie has managed to regain creative control of its intellectual property, there are a lot of challenges ahead for the studio to think about. Here are a few questions we have as Bungie wades into these new waters. Continue reading… View the full article
  14. Amazon is reportedly working on a video game streaming service, but it isn’t likely to be launched until 2020 at the earliest. Reported by The Information (via GamesIndustry.biz) sources indicate that the service will be similar to what Microsoft and Google are currently building with Project xCloud and Project Stream, respectively. This service looks to eliminate the need for expensive hardware to run graphically taxing games. Instead, like its competitors, the games would be run inside powerful data centers and streamed to various devices, including smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and more.

The news that Geralt would be playable in Monster Hunter World came last month, at which time it was revealed that Geralt would be fully voiced by original voice actor Doug Cockle.
