The Daily Moot: Fortnite Harley Quinn, Ubisoft's Big Plans, and More!
1. Fortnite x Birds of Prey
The latest crossover has come to Fortnite! In collaboration with the upcoming Harley Quinn movie “Birds of Prey,” Fortnite is releasing a series of Harley Quinn and Suicide Squad skins. The first Harley bundle will be available later today, and will include the Lil Monster XoXo Harley skin as well as the Harley Hitter and Punchline pickaxes. What are your thoughts on the new skins? Birds of Prey hits theaters tomorrow.
2. Ubisoft’s Big Plans Ubisoft just revealed that they have some big plans for later this year. During the end of 2020 and the start of 2021, Ubisoft is planning to release 5 AAA games. This news comes after several games were shelved or delayed by Ubisoft, including Watch Dogs Legion and Rainbow Six: Quarantine. There’s no word yet on the exact titles we can expect, but it is very likely that we’ll see some of these delayed games finally get their launch.
3. Overwatch League Stats Lab Ben Trautman, the stats man for the Overwatch League, just released a new tool called the Overwatch League Stats Lab. The Stats Lab contains an insane amount of information on pro players, allowing you to dig into the smallest details of what makes pros so good. Although Trautman tried to make the tool as user-friendly as possible, he also released a series of tutorial videos to help you find exactly what you’re searching for.
4. The Witcher Season 2 The Witcher Season 2 will apparently feature an all-new original character who did not appear in the video games or books. The new character will be named Violet and will be played by Doolittle actress Carmel Laniado. In addition to the new character, series showrunner Lauren Hissrich also mentioned that the second season will be much more linear than the first. Filming for The Witcher Season 2 is expected to start this month, and will premiere on Netflix in 2021.
5. Gears of War Boss Leaves for Blizzard It’s no secret that things at Blizzard haven’t been going too well lately. From Diablo Immortal to Warcraft 3 Reforged, it’s clear that they’ve gotten out of touch with their fanbase. In an effort to change their ways, Blizzard has hired Rod Ferguson, the head of Microsoft’s The Coalition Studio and the director for Gears of War. At Blizzard, Ferguson will be tasked with overseeing the Diablo franchise. It’s unclear how much his hiring will affect the upcoming Diablo 4, which was announced last year and is already in development.
