Upcoming zombie apocalypse game Dying Light is now going to be strictly on current-gen consoles. According to a recent Facebook post, Dying Light is heavily dependent on a "next-gen feel" in its true form, and as such, cutting the game's release the title on last-gen consoles was necessary. Many people feel that the decision to cancel the Xbox 360 and PlayStation versions is actually a positive thing, as this should create a better experience overall.

Dying Light is scheduled for a January 2015 release. What do you think? Is this disappointing, or is it a worthy sacrifice?

As part of its latest earnings report, Electronic Arts has revealed the release date for the next entry in the Battlefield franchise.

The announcement was made as Electronic Arts posted a $232 million profit for the quarter.

Star Wars and normal wars fans alike, let's all give a collective "Hurrah!" Electronic Arts has unveiled release windows for the upcoming Battlefield, rumored to be Battlefield 5, and the next entry in the Star Wars: Battlefront franchise.

Battlefront is arriving sooner, with a current release plan for the holiday season of 2015. The next Battlefield, not to be confused with the upcoming Battlefield: Hardline, is set for release during the holidays of 2016. Here's what EA had to say about the reasoning.

"This allows us to have a major first-person shooter title each year."

This also implies that the upcoming Battlefront is an FPS. Now we know exactly what direction EA and DICE plan to take the interstellar IP in.

Bring out your dead, the Witcher is coming. Not before some blood-curdling horse hacking and human killing, of course. The Witcher 3's new trailer would make anyone excited to play the game.

Jumping from past to present, the video gives a bit of insight on some of the game's narrative, as well as the vast power that the Witcher's target possesses.

In the latest episode of his podcast, Hideo Kojima discussed the mechanics of the open world that can be found in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. As with all open world games, when not in a mission, you can roam the map freely tackling side quests or just explore. However, while on a mission, you are limited to a specific area. Going outside of this area will result in an automatic failure. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is scheduled for release in Q1 of 2015.

In its first year on the market, Xbox One has seen two big "exclusives" later ported to PC. Both Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome were touted as only being available on Xbox One, but both later crossed over, and it looked like Sunset Overdrive was primed for the same treatment, as a recent ad listed it for both Xbox One and PC. However, Microsoft's Mike Ybarra, has commented on the ad, stating that it was a mistake that is being fixed. Sunset Overdrive launches on Xbox One tomorrow. Will it eventually see a PC release as well? Time will tell.
