Earlier this week, it was revealed via a writer's personal website that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will launch in Fall 2023, despite that information not having being officially announced by Insomniac or PlayStation. With the cat well and truly out of the bag, PlayStation has now confirmed that release window, meaning the game will probably be aiming for a Holiday launch next year.
It seems like every PlayStation exclusive is getting a movie or TV show, and now Death Stranding is joining that ever-growing list. Kojima Productions has partnered up with Barbarian executive producer Alex Lebovici's Hammerstone Studios to make the movie, with Kojima himself set to be involved. It's also claimed the movie won't be a simple retelling of the game's story, introducing new characters and elements to the Death Stranding universe.
Tomb Raider no longer belongs to Square Enix, which means publishing rights to the franchise were a little up in the air. Many of us probably expected new owner Embracer to publish the title, but it seems like the company has handed publishing rights to Amazon for the next game which is currently in development at Crystal Dynamics. A corresponding press release has also called this new title the "biggest, most expansive" Tomb Raider game to date.
Speaking of Amazon, the company is reportedly about to finalize a deal with Games Workshop for the TV rights to the Warhammer 40,000 series. Better yet, it's being reported that Henry Cavill is on board to both star in and executive produce the series, shortly after announcing that he's hanging up the cape for good. Given Cavill's open love for Warhammer, any movie or TV show based on the series was going to have him involved in some capacity.
Falcom announced quite some time ago that a tenth game in the Ys series was in development, but it has finally revealed the game's title and release window in Japan. Ys 10: Nordics will launch at some point in Japan next year and will take Adol Christin to a group of islands in the north sea called Obelia Bay. A previous interview has also revealed that there'll be some Souls inspirations in the title too.
