Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed once again. Despite the fact that the game went gold earlier this month, which means that it’s officially been approved for launch, CD Projekt Red has decided to push back the release date in order to continue “working on it and raising the quality bar.” CD Projekt explained that although the game is technically ready, their “biggest challenge” with Cyberpunk right now is optimizing it for “current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time,” which requires the studio to “prepare and test” 9 different versions of the game. Studio head Adam Badowski said, "We feel we have an amazing game on our hands and are willing to make every decision, even the hardest ones, if it ultimately leads to you getting a video game you'll fall in love with." Originally expected to launch on April 16, then September 17, then November 19, Cyberpunk 2077 is now set to arrive on December 10.

  2. Xbox Games on PC   Xbox head Phil Spencer has confirmed that all next-gen first-party Xbox games will be coming to PC. Specifically, Spencer said, “if we are shipping a first-party game on PC it's coming to Steam and our own store,” but also acknowledged that Xbox console players may get some perks regarding “when certain things happen,” suggesting that timed exclusives are still a possibility. While this confirmation only applies to first-party games, it seems Spencer is hoping to apply this policy to third-party Xbox exclusives as well, but said that there “maybe little anomalies every so often and because of relationships and certain developers that want to do certain things.”

  3. Ubisoft Next-Gen Enhancements   Ubisoft has revealed some of their next-gen enhancements for games like Watch Dogs Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Immortals Fenyx Rising on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. The exact enhancements vary between consoles and from game to game, but it’s clear that the vast majority of titles will be able to enjoy 4K resolution at 60FPS (with Rainbow Six Siege getting 4K resolution at 120FPS) and will be able to take full advantage of each console’s improved load speeds. Certain games, such as Watch Dogs Legion, will also be able to use raytracing technology, although this seems to be more of the exception than the rule. You can check out Ubisoft’s game-by-game breakdown of their next-gen plans below.

  4. Baby Yoda Coming to Squadrons   Baby Yoda will soon be making his way to Star Wars: Squadrons as part of the upcoming “Mandalorian Supply Drop” update. This news is somewhat surprising considering that EA previously stated that Squadrons would not be getting any additional content after launch. The Mandalorian Supply Drop will introduce 8 new items to the game, but it seems that each of them will merely be cosmetic. The Mandalorian Supply Drop is set to hit Star Wars: Squadrons tomorrow, October 28.

  5. Chris Metzen Warchief Gaming   Chris Metzen, the former longtime senior vice president of Blizzard, has now opened a new tabletop gaming company called Warchief Gaming. Metzen retired from Blizzard in 2016 after 23 years with the company, saying at the time that he wasn’t planning on “starting up new projects.” The former creative director for games such as Warcraft, Diablo, and Overwatch, it will be interesting to see what kind of vision Metzen can bring to the new platform in tabletop. You can check out the official announcement for Warchief Gaming below.
