Rumours of a Diablo animated series on Netflix reinforced

The hit hot the hittie the hittie to the hit hit hot rumour going around again is that an animated series based on Diablo is likely coming streaming film-o-TV service Netflix. This latest action-RPG rumourburp is based on a now-deleted tweet by an aspiring showrunner but look, I don't care if this rumour is true or not. Let's hijack the attention it's raised and bend…

[Confirmed] Assassin’s Creed Odyssey revealed by promo tat

Update: And it's official. Ubisoft have tweeted a short teaser with a fella doing that kick from the meme. As E3 approaches, rumours and teasers are flying off all over. Here's a new rumour for you: Ubisoft are following up on the Egyptian Assassin's Creed Origins with a visit to ancient Greece in a game named Assassin's Creed Odyssey. That's the buzz from French site…

Rumour-o-rama: Battlefield V revisiting WW2 this year

How do war game makers pick which war to fight in their next game? It's a little-known fact that the games industry unites every year to settle this by drawing balls. It's important that games don't all pick the same war, after all, and draws were deemed the best method after several disastrous years of paintball tournaments. Call of Duty got the much-coveted World War…

Rumour: BioWare’s Anthem delayed into 2019

While BioWare's new sci-fi persistent open-world multiplayer shooter doodad Anthem is officially due to launch this autumn, several secret sources tell Kotaku that the game is now likely delayed into early 2019. Speaking anonymously (the industry is not remotely fond of leakers, after all), they say that BioWare are shifting almost everyone to focus on Anthem, and... there are more whispers about the game's progress,…

A new Fable game is reportedly in the pipes

A couple of weeks back, rumours started spreading that a new Fable game was in the works. That seemed odd considering Microsoft shut down Lionhead, the studio that made the Fable games, nearly two years ago. According to Eurogamer, those rumours were on the money: new Fable is coming, and it'll be "a story and character-focussed open-world action RPG" made by UK developer Playground Games.…

Rumour: Cyberpunk 2077 to be shown at E3 2018

I half expected Witcher devs CD Project Red to be trolling us with the solitary 'beep' from the Cyberpunk 2077 account last week, and that we wouldn't hear anything from them for another 5 years. I mean, of course it was trolling - but Polish site GRYOnline have reported fresh rumours for the RPG, claiming certain information has arrived with them courtesy of two independent…

Report: Mass Effect is taking a nap

It's a bloodbath in Old Gamestown today. Square Enix have tragically called a halt to Agent 47's Hitman career, despite his being at the peak of his powers, and meanwhile Kotaku report on rumours that EA has grounded the Mass Effect series in the wake of frowny reception to this year's Mass Effect Andromeda [official site]. Word is that the devs have been moved onto…

Rumour! Call of Duty: WW2 is real, and a real bad name

Rumours of Call of Duty's return to World War 2 have circulated since, well, since Activision's mega-hit FPS series left it almost a decade ago. This time it's really for really real, folks including our chums at Eurogamer say. Whispers, rumours, and supposedly leaked artwork say this year's game will bear the rubbish name Call of Duty: WWII. Presumably this would mean a sad farewell…

They are Groot: Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy?

It is the year 2801. A man weeps as he is forced to play Last of the Summer Wine: A Telltale Adventure. It is the last remaining hitherto unadapted license in the world. He sobs as he remembers Supermarket Sweep: A Telltale Adventure and the living hell that was Fifty Shades of Grey: A Telltale Adventure. A small scream looses his lips as he recalls…

Beelzebabble: Diablo 4 Rumours Abound

Update: David Brevik has since tweeted that he's not involved in any Diablo projects at the moment. That's why you should never listen to gossip. Alice is away today, so I'm posting a rumour. She'll be SO MAD when she gets back! Anyway, rumours are circulating that Blizzard might be about to announce Diablo 4 at next month's Blizzcon. Each rumour on its own is…

Red Dead Redemption Remastered Rumoured For PC

I should warn you: Ian Video Games is wearing a cowboy hat. Worse: he's saying things like "ah fair reckon". Someone's filled his head with dreams of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption [official site] and ah fair reckon it's you, The Internet. As ever with our Ian, some of what he's spouting is tripe. No, Ian, no one has found a poster revealing a new Red…

Leak-o! Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour Rumoured

They're releasing another Duke Nukem, then. Gearbox are muttering to themselves and engaging in dreadful brandter so yup, it's on. Predictions: the return of jokes already ten years old when Duke Nukem 3D borrowed them twenty years ago; an awkward attempt to reframe Duke's earnest trashiness as 'ironic'; a game hoping to coast on former glories. If rumours and leaks are to be believed, the…

Rumour: The Witcher’s Gwent Becomes Own Game

You'll never guess what Ian Video Games heard down at the trademark and patent office! Oh, yes, of course someone said "This is the daftest idea I've ever heard", you're right there. His patent does make a certain sort of sense if you think about it, though. Inevitably some Frankenstein will make a perpetual motion machine by strapping buttered toast to a cat and hurling…

Rumour: No Man’s Sky Delayed

"Psst. Psst!" Oh lord, here is again, Ian Video Games come to disturb your quiet afternoon pint. He shoots you a wink and sidles up. "No Man's Sky?" he asks, leaning in to tapping his nose conspiratorially. "NOT Man's Sky more like! Wait... NO Man's Sky more like! Wait. I mean... NONE Man's Sky? LATER Man's Sky! If you catch my drift." The latest juicy…

Mass Effect Andromeda Details Slip Out

BioWare have been keeping a tight lid on Mass Effect: Andromeda's [official site] plot, but it seems some details have appeared in the form of a customer survey. Not the world's most reliable format, as these tend to be, "How would you feel about a game that featured a race of evil melons as the main antagonists?" before asking you about your mobile phone usage,…

What Is A ‘Bioshock Collection’ And Do You Want It?

And now on Vague, Possibly-Nothing News Hour, it's the apparent leak of something called The BioShock Collection, which appears to comprise BioShock 1, BioShock 2 and BioShock: Infinite Art Budget. Which isn't super-interesting in itself, given we've all been able to pick up said bundle or the components thereof for absurdly low prices in various Steam sales. What is twisting my Plasmids, man, is that…

Rumour – WB Knew Batman Arkham: Knight PC Was Pants

Rumours are shifty things, and we should recognise that we're more inclined to trust ones which support our existing opinions. That said, I TOLD YOU SO. A mate of Ian Video Games has told Kotaku that publishers Warner Bros. knew for ages that the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] was wonky - it's bad enough that WB have pulled it from sale…
