Rumour: No Man’s Sky Delayed

BLAST OFF!

“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 rumour whirling around is that No Man’s Sky [official site], the gorgeous procedural sandbox universe from Hello Games, has been delayed. It was due in June but now… sorry, Ian’s just jabbed himself in the eye doing all that nose-tapping. I’ll fetch the first aid kit then get back to you in a sec.

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, but likely indicative of the direction in which the game is heading. So if you want all your news about the game to be carefully spoon-fed to you via the appropriate PR departments, look away now.

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 the leak claims this pack is coming out for Xbone and PS4 in addition to PC. Which might meant that we’re in for a – oh lord, save me from the buzzwords – next-gen spit’n’polish of the series.

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 while it’s being fixed – but released it anyway.

Rumour: Dark Souls 3 Coming In 2016, PC Release Hazy

Ooh!

Dark Souls 3 is apparently well underway in the workpits of From Software, according to leaked materials bearded NerdBro YouTube news channel The Know have seen. Screenshots, concept art and gameplay info are detailed in a new video from the crew, but it’s all vague enough that the fate of the PC version is thrown into confusion by one little word.

Fallout 4 Rumours Resurface On LinkedIn Profile

As another E3 approaches, hopes rise anew for Fallout 4. With Bethesda hosting their first ever E3 press conference this year, chances are high they have something exciting to show us and, if a LinkedIn profile found by VideoGamer is to be believed, Fallout may be top of the list.

Rumour: Hideo Kojima Leaving Konami After MGS 5

Sometimes I’d swear that Ian Video Games is deliberately trying to ruin everyone’s fun. Just as we’re getting used to Metal Gear games settling on PC (not just Solid – we mustn’t forget Platinum’s Rising), Big Mouth strikes again and starts spreading rumours of strife.

Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear creator and director, and other senior members of Metal Gear Solid devs Kojima Productions are at odds with owners and publishers Konami, Ian says, and will leave once MGS V: The Phantom Pain is done. So Ian says, anyway. Konami say all’s hunky-dory.
