The Daily Moot: The Future of Call of Duty: WarzoneNews Picks
1. Warzone Synchronization
Infinity Ward and Raven Software have finally unveiled “The Future of Call of Duty: Warzone.” While the name is a bit dramatic, the post essentially explains how the battle royale mode will progress and work across multiple different generations and games following the imminent release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Warzone will have its own overall levelling system but will also share aspects with both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War (as well as any future title) such as weapons, operators, maps, and cosmetics. For the full breakdown of how Warzone’s synchronization will work you can check out Infinity Ward’s “The Future of Call of Duty: Warzone” post below; Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to launch November 13.
2. Rockstar Next-Gen Plans Rockstar has revealed their next-gen plans for Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2. The studio announced that both games will be backwards compatible and that the current PS4 and Xbox One versions will be playable on their next-gen counterparts. Unfortunately Rockstar didn’t say whether or not they plan to provide free upgrades of the games once their dedicated next-gen editions arrive, but we do know that an enhanced edition of GTA V is already in the works and that a PS5 version of GTA Online is set to launch in 2021.
3. K/DA All Out “All Out,” the debut EP from League of Legends virtual K-pop group K/DA, is officially here. The album contains a total of 5 tracks, 3 of which are brand new. The songs are technically performed by Ahri, Kai'Sa, Evelynn, Akali, and Seraphine from League of Legends, but feature vocals from popular artists such as (G)-IDLE, Twice, Bea Miller, Wolftyla, and Aluna. You can check out the new EP on most music streaming services including YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.
4. Kerbal Space Program 2 Delayed Kerbal Space Program 2 has been delayed once again. This marks the 3rd time the highly-anticipated sequel has been delayed, but creative director Nate Simpson indicated that the team is clearly looking long-term as he stated, “Quality is paramount. We’re creating a reliable foundation on which players and modders alike can build for another decade or more.” Initially expected to arrive this year, then delayed to 2021, Kerbal Space Program 2 is now set to launch sometime in 2022.
5. Capcom Hacked Capcom has been hacked and is apparently now being extorted for $11 million. Capcom issued a press release acknowledging the hack earlier this week, but new details have emerged suggesting that the attack was ransomware designed to get the company to pay to avoid having their sensitive data leaked. The ransom note in this case claims to have downloaded “accounting files, banking statements, intellectual property, and clients and employees personal information,” with the attackers saying that the “data will be published and/or sold through an auction to any third-parties” unless Capcom pays the hackers $11 million. Capcom stated that no user data was obtained in the breach, but has yet to comment on the reports of extortion. https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-54840768
