1. Black Ops Cold War Specs
Activision has released the hardware specifications for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on PC. Much like Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War will be absolutely massive. Given the specs that Activision revealed it appears that the game will require up to 250GB of space for the full game or 50GB for just the multiplayer mode. Activision has not revealed the specs for PlayStation or Xbox yet, but the game will likely require a significant amount of space on consoles as well. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to launch on November 13.

5. Everspace 2 Postponed Rockfish Games announced that they have decided to postpone the launch of Everspace 2. Much like Path of Elixe’s announcement yesterday, this is due to the studio’s desire to not compete against Cyberpunk 2077 which launches on December 10. Rockfish Games explained, “We are aware that Everspace 2 fans will be unhappy, but competing with the arguably most anticipated videogame in history is just not a good idea.” Originally expected to launch in early access in December, Everspace 2 will now arrive in January.
