Devil May Cry 5 to be announced during PSX 2017 (RUMOR)

Devil May Cry 5 has been heavily rumored since the release of the Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition. CAPCOM has praised it as one of their best selling titles for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Even the actors who played Dante and Nero in Devil May Cry 4 have been seen in MoCap suits a few years back. I will tag that below, and keep you informed if this happens or not. Including a link to the trailer if it’s announced at all.

**Update: after seeing the HD Collection announced for the second time. Had no idea Nintendo and Platinum was going to announce Bayonetta 3 tonight. I really think they wanted to beat Devil May Cry to the punch. They are basically saying “Your move Capcom…”

Platinum Games just Tweeted an Interesting Picture of Bayonetta

Platinum Games recently tweeted this interesting picture of Bayonetta to celebrate their new Japanese Twitter. Featuring Bayonetta on the top and bottom, in her respective looks in Bayonetta 1 and 2. The interesting thing is here, is that the top is blue and the bottom is red, the same colors as a pair of Joycons. It is slightly reaching but we all know Bayonetta 3 will eventually be made for the Nintendo Switch. Now this could be a slight hint at a port of Bayonetta 1 and 2 for the Switch, which will also be welcomed. What do you think? Think I’m having wishful thinking? Or if it’s a little tease for us Bayonetta fans.

New Overwatch Patch may have Leaked New Hero and returning Event

After the most recent update to Overwatch, making loot box changes, and adding the new lunar colony, a leak as came. Data miners have found codes saying “Doomfist / Summer Games”, which would make sense. The Summer Games season even is upon us again, and Doomfist has been heavily rumored for a long long time, since last fall. What do you think? You think we will see Summer Games 2 and Doomfist?

Nintendo Switch could get more Wii U Ports

We all know the Wii U was not a heavy seller, but some of the games on it were amazing, and not too many people got a chance to play them. Reggie stated this in a recent interview with Waypoint. The interview is stated below. But what do you think? Do you want more Wii U ports like Super Smash Bros. , Bayonetta 2, and maybe even something like Tokyo Mirage Sessions?

“Given the install base of Wii U, there was some fantastic content that consumers did not get to play,” Fils-Aime said. “So that creates certainly a business opportunity. On the other hand, one of the things that we’ve discussed internally is, there really needs to be an additional element to that game to make it fresh, and to further compel the consumer to buy in.”

“I think the best example of that is Pokken Tournament Deluxe. Additional fighters, that gives the fan a reason to buy into it. Same is true with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, providing a mode that the consumers wanted in terms of a better battle mode, that was then included in that game. And so, I think the way we will continue to evaluate this is: yes, do we have opportunities with great games that maybe were not played as broadly on the Wii U, but then what’s the plus alpha that’s going to make it really compelling for the consumer?”

 

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch release date possibly leaked by Amazon

Link-In-Skyrim-

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may have had it’s release date leaked via Amazon. The release date listed by the giant that is Amazon. Is November 28th of this year, which makes sense, after the big Super Mario Odyssey, and right before Xenoblade Chronicles 2. What do you think? Does this release date sound likely to you?

L.A. Noire remaster for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch may be in the works, Alongside with a first person/VR Mode (RUMOR)

It appears that the rumors of the L.A. Noire remaster may indeed be true. The rumor started back in January of this year, from the same user who leaked the GTA IV expansions years ago. Several sources have backed this up since then, and RGN has reached out to Rockstar for a statement on the matter. Listed below are some of tweets from industry insiders who I consider trustworthy. Supposedly we will see sometime at the end of the summer, so expect a August or September release date.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered getting a Physical Release (RUMOR)

call_of_duty_modern_warfare_remastered_standalone_leak

The leak suggest that Modern Warfare Remastered may be getting a release for $39.99 today or next week June 27th. It’s sort of crazy to think they could pull a fast and quick release like this, but who knows. As the image above is supposedly a real copy that a unnamed realtor has obtained in advance. RGN has reached out to Activison for a statement with no response, we will cover this story closely.

New Monster Hunter game in development for Nintendo Switch (RUMOR)

Nintendo-20170109-MonsterHunter

The man who had stated that Monster Hunter World was coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC has now said that CAPCOM is developing a new Monster Hunter game for the Switch. Instead of a port of Monster Hunter World or localizing Monster Hunter XX.” Now this just a rumor of course and we don’t have much information to go on, but it is the same person who leaked Monster Hunter World, so he may still be a trust worthy source. What do you think? Is CAPCOM developing a separate and new Monster Hunter title for the Nintendo Switch?

Blizzard may be Remastering Diablo II and Warcraft III

diablo_2_boxart.0.0

Blizzard has put out a job listing that states “Compelling stories. Intense multiplayer. Endless replay ability. Qualities that made StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II the titans of their day. Evolving operating systems, hardware, and online services have made them more difficult to be experienced by their loyal followers or reaching a new generation. We’re restoring them to glory, and we need your engineering talents, your passion, and your ability to get tough jobs done.” The listing is for a Senior Software Engineer, and this listing suggest that they will come out through Blizzards Launcher. We know Starcraft Remastered is releasing this summer this doesn’t seem to far fetched at all. What do you think? Is something you’d like to see if the pricing is reasonable?

“UPDATED” Rumor: Grand Theft Auto V is the next game to receive “Creation Club” style paid mods

Grand Theft Auto V DLC - Paid Mods - Creation Club - OPENIV 2017

UPDATE: Take-Two brings back Mods for GTA V: http://realgamernewz.com/52278/modding-returns-to-grand-theft-auto-v

Original Story Below

Take-Two Interactive recently made waves in the video games industry by creating a cease-and-desist order which resulted in the removal and banning of OpenIV, a tool used for years by video game modders who sought to improve the experience of GTA IV and GTA V on the PC Gaming platform through after-market special graphics textures and effects, new game modes, extra characters, missions, and beyond.

Rockstar Games was quick to note that Take-Two Interactive acted without their instruction in issuing the cease-and-desist. Mods have been crafted over long periods of time through a snowball effort combined by community members of the years of both games – allowing a huge library of GTA mods to accumulate. The removal of OpenIV from the internet essentially shuts down this community, ends this progress, and detains all GTA mods to the doghouse of being taboo underground collector’s files that most gamers won’t get to experience other than vicariously through YouTube videos.

Grand Theft Auto V DLC - Paid Mods - Creation Club - OPENIV 2017 b

Suddenly, years later after being hush – now there’s a problem? Why now? After so much time has passed, the PC edition of the GTA V has been out for years and the development of modding tools and content for GTA IV has even led to even greater success in modding GTA V. Many of the mods released for the game simply enhance the look of it to a level of god-like graphical fidelity dubbed “Reality” or “Real Life” mods because they look so good at this point. The preliminary reasons given are that OpenIV allowed multiplayer mods to interfere with GTA Online – something we always knew would become a problem since this time around Rockstar Games charges money in-game in their online gameplay.

However, many of us gamers and journalists have perhaps failed to see what was right before our eyes. I went back and forth for hours with anonymous sources speaking off-record to RealGamerNewZ about the announcement for what is basically being seen as “the end to GTA mods” currently on the internet. Instead, this action has seemingly been in timing with a certain other industry event we’ve all taken notice of. While unable to confirm or deny the realization they’d guided us to, our source all but revealed that Rockstar Games could soon have a way to work hand-in-hand with mod content developers and get them paid for their hard work.

Exactly what this would look like remains to be seen, as well as whether or not plans for such a community-driven yet developer-monitored content development pipeline had already existed before this knee-jerk reaction to Bethesda’s “Creation Club” service. The industry could be seeing GTA V receive a very similar treatment in an experimental, but influential time during gaming.

Further explanation of this new trend for paid mods continued: “-with high approval rating among devs eager to help with the certification or even development of mods; as mods becoming more polished like DLC and guided content with compensation for mod developers.”

“We also know that there won’t be a ‘GTA VI’ or ‘Fallout 5’ for a long time. These developers are busy making New IPs, new installments to other franchises, and need time to make sure those new games are as huge as they possibly should be and could be. Content Creators being given safe, profitable, official ways to promote existing games into a higher quality, more fun product gives games more of a chance at a long life span hopefully filling that need until the next product is ready.”

At the time of this post RealGamerNewZ has reached out to Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games to attempt to verify the likelihood of these claims. Additional information which was not approved for release by our sources is also being vetted and further investigated and we will update this story as it progresses.

Currently there are large growing petitions online for Take-Two Interactive to let OpenIV bring itself back online, but at least if this Rumor pans out we can have some closure and sense of how to move forward for a large community of fans who love PC Gaming and love Grand Theft Auto.

Halo 3 leaked for PC by AMD (DEBUNKED)

ih_manual 05

AMD hosted a event in Korea for it’s new R5 CPUs. AMD had a video featuring many different games for the PC platform, oddly enough artwork of Halo 3 was seen, speculating that the long rumored port of Halo 3 was finally coming to PC. Some have speculated this may the rumored Halo 3 Anniversary, which was denied by 343 last year, but they could have lied. Take all of this with a grain of salt, as information is very minimal, if Microsoft denies this, or confirms we will update the article with new information, or if any other developments happen. Personally I could see it since this year is the 10 year anniversary of Halo 3 which would make sense, launching it on the Xbox Platform, and PC. 343 did say Halo 3 Anniversary wasn’t happening, but that could have been misleading. Or this could simply just be a port of Halo 3, which would be interesting, or maybe even a port of the Halo Master Chief Collection. What do you think? Do you think Microsoft is letting Halo 3 come to PC? Stay tuned here at RGN.

343 shot down rumors of Halo 3 in any form coming to the PC.

Overwatch’s Omnic Uprising Skins Leaked (RUMOR)

xhXqCkT

The King’s Row Uprising in game event starts tomorrow, being described as backstory for the game, instead of a holiday event. But it seems the costumes from the Uprising prequel comic may have made it’s way into the game, with a leak via Xbox Live. I’d say more than likely these skins are real but don’t get too excited, but it matches up with the in game event and the comic book. We will have to wait for official word or just see what happens tomorrow.
