EA Closing ‘Dead Space,’ Unreleased ‘Star Wars’ Game Developer Visceral
  |  @   |  

It’s been four years now since Disney decided to close down longtime Star Wars gamemaker LucasArts and instead sign an exclusive licensing deal with video game factory Electronic Arts. At first things showed some promise, with multiple titles expected including first-person shooter Battlefront, a third-person game from Dead Space developer Visceral Games, and more.

But in the four years since it’s all been a bit of a nightmare scenario for fans. And it keeps getting worse, as EA has announced that they’ve decided to shut down Visceral Games. Though there is some good news: the Star Wars game they’ve been working on is not being killed off with the developer. Not yet, at least. Read the full announcement below.

E3 2016: First Look At New ‘Star Wars’ Games
  |  @   |  

Instead of focusing on one specific Star Wars game such as Star Wars Battlefront, EA took the opportunity to preview all of the games they’re working on for the franchise, which is many from a bunch of different developers including Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment, who’s working on a third-person title, BioWare, DICE, and more.

As far as actually showing the games, there’s not a whole lot of that. It’s more of a behind the scenes video talking with many of the people who are working on these highly anticipated Star Wars games. But there is one particular game that is briefly shown that will excite eager fans. That would be the game being worked on by Dead Space developer Visceral Games, led by former top Naughty Dog talent Amy Hennig—who was a writer and creative director on their Uncharted series and joined Visceral back in April of 2014—with the help of Lucasfilm VP and Executive Creative Director Doug Chiang.

It’s not much at all, and it is early footage, but you can see that brief first gameplay peek and more on the various Star Wars games being worked on in the video below.

Wait, What? Next ‘Battlefield’ Game Goes Cops vs. Criminals With ‘Hardline’
  |  @   |  

A recent leak seemed to indicate that the next game in Electronic Arts’ Battlefield franchise would be straying from the realms of military conflict and entering some kind of much smaller cops and robbers territory, to put it simply.

This has now been confirmed with the unveiling of an official website for Battlefield: Hardline. Unlike other entries in the series, however, it sounds as if the newest game will offer its single player campaign in episodic fashion in addition to the expected multiplayer options. It’s said to be somewhat along the same lines as the FX series The Shield as far as the characters and action goes.

‘Evil Dead’ Remake Director Fede Alvarez To Take On Video Game ‘Dante’s Inferno’
  |  @   |  

When the Visceral Games and Electronic Arts video game Dante’s Inferno was released in 2010, it didn’t make much of a splash. Some people enjoyed it, especially for its look, while others didn’t enjoy it so much due to gameplay that was very similar to the God of War series. And everyone moved on.

Now the game may be getting dusted off or given some new chances by gamers, as a movie version is in the works. It’s being reported that Fede Alvarez, the short film director who made his feature debut with 2013’s Evil Dead and became one of the rare few to prove that remakes can in fact work when done properly, is in negotiations to take on the live-action adaptation.

Continue below for more and to see a trailer for the game.
