NetherRealm Studios and TT Games Won’t be Sold off, WB Games Says

Published

There’s been a lot of question marks surrounding the future of WB Games as a whole of late. With the Warner Media Discovery Group merger looming large, there’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not game development studios owned by WB Games are going to be sold off to potential suitors in the industry.

A recent rumour originating from Windows Central’s Jez Corden (during the Xbox Two podcast) claimed that WB Games was, according to some documents seen by Corden, considering selling off NetherRealm Studios – developer of the Injustice and Mortal Kombat games – and TT Games – who have worked on LEGO titles almost exclusively.

However, WB Games says that that isn’t the case. In a statement provided to TheGamer, Remi Sklar – senior vice president of global communications at WB Games – stated that both the aforementioned studios would continue to be owned by Warner and were part of the Discovery merger.

“I can confirm NetherRealm Studios and TT Games will continue to remain a part of Warner Bros. Games, and all are included in the Warner Media Discovery merger,” she said.

Recently, NetherRealm Studios confirmed that it was ending support for Mortal Kombat 11, and instead completely shifting focus to its next game.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment recently stated, following the sale of mobile developer Playdemic to EA, that all WB Games studios would focus on making games based on WB-owned IPs going forward. Read more on that through here.

Destruction AllStars Developer Delays Season 2, Releases New Patch

Published

on

destruction allstars

For all the potential its core game mechanics showed at launch, Destruction AllStars has sort of petered out into the background since its release earlier this year, and it hasn’t helped that the game’s post-launch support hasn’t exactly been the most stellar. Season 1 kicked off nearly three months ago, but with the next season approaching, developer Lucid Games has announced in a blog update that that’s been delayed.

Season 1 is being extended so that the developer can focus on “the game’s core experience”. New tiers have been added to the current battle pass, but a new patch for the game has also gone live, with brings several improvements and additions. Latency has been improved to prevent “ghost hits”, while cooldowns for all slams on all vehicles have also been “drastically” reduced.

Meanwhile, the patch also adds several new things to the game:

  • New high quality skins and cosmetics
  • Online parties for solo game modes
  • A new Quickplay playlist
  • Buffs to AllStars and Hero Vehicles
  • Two Reworked Mayhem maps with smaller arena size (going live in a few weeks)
  • Three new premium AllStar Pass tiers
  • Refreshed shop interface

Destruction AllStars is available exclusively on PS5.

Crimson Desert Delayed to Unknown Date

Published

on

Crimson Desert

Adding on to the list of delays this season is Pearl Abyss’s Crimson Desert. The developer/publisher announced on Twitter that the open world title was being delayed in order to “dedicate more time to adding new ideas for an even deeper, more enriching game.” While it’s looking to “create the best possible experience,” the team also wants to ensure “the health and safety of everyone involved in delivering the game”.

Announced at The Game Awards 2020 and originally slated to release this Winter, Crimson Desert serves as a prequel to Black Desert. Though the latter is an online MMO, Crimson Desert is touted as a single-player title focused on a band of mercenaries in Pywel. The player controls Macduff who is haunted by his past and must lead his band to success. Combat appears to be based on Black Desert’s responsive hack and clash gameplay but more grounded and visceral.

While a new release date or window wasn’t announced, Pearl Abyss said it would provide an “updated schedule in the future.” Stay tuned for updates, whenever they may be revealed. Crimson Desert is being developed for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
