Gearbox Software

It has recently been rumored Gearbox, the makers of Borderlands, have picked up the rights to make Duke Nukem Forever. Fans of the series are frothing at the mouth at the prospect of a rebirth of the Duke Nukem franchise. Gearbox on the other hand is staying closed mouth on the subject and given the history of Duke Nukem Forever I cannot blame them.

Treyarch

Treyarch recently released the multi-player teaser for Call of Duty: Black Ops, which can be found here. The trailer itself looks amazing and leaves many of us with itchy trigger fingers, but it also shows some long awaited additions to the Call of Duty franchise. One of which is the “theatre mode” much like what can be found in Halo 3. It opens the door for players to share clips with friends as well as adding major possibilities for game play directors. We all impatiently await the November 9Th release date.

Dice | Danger Close Games

It was recently stated that the Medal of Honor Limited Edition would include a beta code for Battlefield 3.  The beta could be released within twelve months of Medal of Honors release according to EA’ s beta website.

EA L. A. announces new studio working on the Medal of Honor single player:

“Today, EA Los Angeles announced the creation of a new studio, Danger Close; a name inspired by real world military terminology that initiates a call for fire to indicate that friendly forces are within close proximity of the target (usually 600 meters). It’s the decision to take a chance directly with an enemy, rather than sit back and call in the air strikes/artillery from a safe distance.

“Medal of Honor is the first game to fall under the Danger Close studio. And because the term “Danger Close” is all about is about pushing the boundaries, it’s the perfect fit for Medal of Honor given the team’s decision to take on a story that is both controversial and one that needs to be told.”
