Grand Theft Auto Trilogy (may be delayed)
Rumors surfaced just last week of a Grand Theft Auto Trilogy (remastered) coming to multiple platforms. The rumors even suggested a release window as early as this winter. These rumors were put to rest recently according to an “inside leaker.”
The story of the rumors first came to light in a story from Kotaku, which were the first to run the story. A November window was originally planned for the ‘unconfirmed’ trilogy which would be available for multiple platforms. The trilogy was said to come as a remaster with a mixture of old and newer graphics.
The trilogy would feature three titles in the collection – the collection would include Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. With such a clamor for GTA VI, it makes since for Rockstar to release this trilogy as it has not released a new Grand Theft Auto title since 2013 with GTA V.
Rockstar has not released a game since 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2. The company which is known for a slew of major titles; has been rather quiet over the last few years. Rumors have run rampant over a new GTA title being announced, but for the near future it seems the newest title from the company we will receive, will indeed be technically older titles.
We will update with further developments on the story.
Cyberpunk 2077 – Delayed Again And Here’s Why
Today, the developers of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red announced that Cyberpunk will be delayed to December, and not November. After it had gone gold.

In the gaming community, “going gold” is a term used by game developers when the game they are working on is finished and ready to play. So the obvious question comes, how can a game which has gone gold been Delayed again?
The answer is that even though Cyberpunk is ready to play to a large degree on a lot of platforms, CD Projekt Red still have to make sure that the game runs smoothly on all platforms (PS4, PS5, Xbox 1, Series X and S, PC, and Google Stadia. And this seems like a large task since the devs probably didn’t take into account that the game they were working on will be released during the end of the PS4, Xbox one generation and that they would have to optimize their game to all of these Platforms.
It seems like CD Projekt Red is really trying to avoid as much crunch as they can, which is a good move on their part, as Crunch is a big problem in the gaming world, and a major reason for bad health of game devs, “crunch” is a term used when a certain gaming developer will encourage their staff to take large amounts of overtime to help finish a product under a certain deadline, and although a big issue for the devs, it gave certain accountability to release dates.
Marvel’s Avengers | Cash Grab Or Extraordinary Game?
Stan Lee created an empire unseen in memory altogether. The Marvel universe has gone beyond comics, and sure DC Comics can also claim fame in this aspect as well, but not in the way that Marvel has.
The Avengers are not just a popular comic series, or nowadays a popular movie franchise, but it has become a way of life. Picking a favorite avenger, or opinion on the film’s franchise defines relationships and friendships, and could possibly break them. That is the level of popularity this company has established.
In terms of gaming this hasn’t been the case. As the Marvel franchise has stuffed it’s pockets in recent years, the gaming industry has felt a heavier effect from DC with the Arkham Batman video game series. That was until Marvel’s Spider-Man debuted on the Sony PS4 in 2018.
The game was an incredible example of how Marvel could easily slide into the role of being a game changer within the gaming industry. A lot of the crowd that are fans of the Marvel movie franchise are also huge gamer’s, so it was very surprising it took this long for Marvel to capitalize on this. There have been Marvel games in the past, but usually they are cash grab movie tie-ins that can easily be beat in four to six hours with little enjoyment.
So that leaves the question we all want answered, how great of a game can the new Marvel Avengers be? I have tried the beta for the game, honestly I did not come away completely impressed. Although, it did have some inspiring moments. But after all, it is just a beta, so I wont judge based off of this information. With that being said this game really does make one wonder what are we in for? Is this truly the ride we have all been waiting for as long time fans?
We can not truly know until we have our physical copy on hand (digital as well if that’s your gig) but the excitement seems to be rather reserved. This could be more or less because of how COVID-19 has sucked the life out of human society as we know it, or it could just be that we are not expecting much from Marvel.
With Spider-Man, we had gotten so many trailers and game images and hype that it was almost expected it was going to be a triple AAA hit. This can not be said for the Avengers game. Trailers and game play footage has been minimal. Square Enix who is publishing the game is a big-time player in the gaming industry, even much larger than Insomniac who published Spider-Man. So why is this? The virus can not be the reason, if anything being forced to be at home should be ever more the reason for this hype train to take off.
We are all wondering if this is a cash grab or a truly great game, and to be honest we have no idea what we are getting, but like many around the world who are so starved to play a Marvel game or get back into the Marvel universe, we can not wait to go on this adventure, hopefully the price of admission is worth the ride.
