Activision would no longer release Call of Duty on an annual basis

Published

on

The acquisition of Activison-Blizzard by Microsoft this week opened the door to a number of changes within the American group. Besides the question of its future on the PlayStation console, call of duty could be subject to drastic change. The FPS franchise could abandon its annual publication rhythm to go for longer development times, and more spaced outings between them. An upheaval that would be considered within Activision, and the details of which are reported to us by journalist Jason Schreier for the site Bloomberg.

Will the war wait?

If nothing concrete has been announced for the moment, the idea would indeed be in discussion within the upper strata of the management of Activision. Giving more time to the development of the games would be an option considered to restore the image of the franchise with the players, after the reception on this side received by the last title Call of Duty: Vanguard. The acquisition of the Activison-Blizzard group by Microsoft could be the catalyst for this upheaval, the Richmond firm having the habit of favoring the time allocated to the production of games rather than the release of annual episodes.

Top of the charts…for now

So we relativize all the same: if Call of Duty: Vanguard was not a huge critical success, it is nonetheless a monstrous commercial success, as always for the darling of Activision. Vanguard thus topped physical sales in the United States for the year 2021—with a September release, just that. However, the title sold less than its predecessor Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War, a potential sign of shortness of breath for the eternal chestnut tree. However, we should not expect an immediate change: this new rhythm would only take place after the release of the next episode of call of duty, still planned for this year 2022, if Activison adopts the idea.

Finally the PlayStation 5 can be made in color Removable

Sony will soon expand its range of color panels for the PlayStation 5 console.

Finally, the PlayStation 5 can be made in color.  Removable panels in Nova Pink, Starlight Blue and Galactic Purple available in June

The new variants are already available for pre-order, but will go on sale in June. The colors are called Nova Pink, Starlight Blue and Galactic Purple. Regardless of the color, the panels cost $55 per set. Here it is worth clarifying that these colors will be new in terms of sales, and Sony introduced them back in December, along with two more colors that went on sale back in January.

Today, we’re excited to introduce the newest colors to the PS5 family of color accessories: Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple. In addition to previously released DualSense wireless controllers in Cosmic Red and Midnight Black, the latest galaxy-inspired colors will soon be available worldwide.

These new console panels are beautiful and easy to use – just remove the original white panels from the PS5 console and put the new ones back in place. PS5 panels will be available for both PS5 ODD and PS5 Digital Edition and will be sold separately from the DualSense console and controller

A new era in the Windows mobile game console market. GPD has already received the Ryzen 7 6800U APU for the Win Max 2 console

A new era in the Windows mobile game console market

With the release of Ryzen 6000 mobile processors, equipped with very powerful iGPUs, a new era of Windows handheld game consoles is dawning.

The Aya Neo 2 console with Ryzen 7 6800U was unveiled yesterday, and now GPD has boasted that it has already acquired a batch of the same APUs, so GPD Win Max 2 test models based on this platform should be ready by June. Judging by the entry, the company did not expect that it would be able to get the processors so quickly.

GPD Win Max 2 was introduced back in March, but with a Core i7-1280P processor, but its graphics subsystem is no match for the iGPU in the Ryzen 7 6800U.

As a result, before the end of the year, at least two more portable set-top boxes with Windows that can handle modern games should appear on the market. True, apparently, in both cases we are talking about a Full HD screen, which creates an additional load on the GPU. For the same Steam Deck, the resolution is HD.

  • Demon’s Souls
  • echochrome
  • Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds

  • Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
  • Horizon Forbidden West
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Farming Simulator 22
  • Tiny Tina’s Wonderland
  • WWE 2K22

Sony promises monthly replenishment of the list of free games. As you can see, comparing such a PS Plus to Xbox Game Pass, the latter benefits from the release of Microsoft exclusives on their launch day, but the Sony subscription offers more iconic and highly regarded titles, including PlayStation exclusives that are not available on PC.

The launch of the new PS Plus will take place on May 24 in Asia, then it will be available in Japan on June 2, after June 13 North and South America will be connected, and in other markets the service will become available on June 27.
