Morning DLC: Video Games News And Rumors 5/21/14

Computer and Video Games (CVG), which in 1981 was the world’s first magazine dedicated to gaming, is facing closure.

The title, which has been online-only since 2004, may stop publishing at the end of a 45-day consultation period that began on 14 May, sources said.

However, its publishers Future are also believed to be looking into selling off the brand.

In a statement, Future said: “We are currently exploring various options around how to evolve the CVG brand in particular and the market leading Future Games portfolio in general, in order to keep successfully meeting the needs of our consumers.”

There’s no word on how the suspects, seen in the surveillance image posted here, were able to steal the games, or which games they made off with. Kinston is about 90 minutes outside of North Carolina capital city Raleigh.

No content for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be made exclusive to certain platforms, developer CD Projekt Red has assured fans.

Co-founder Marcin Iwinski told Eurogamer that it’s “treating all gamers equally” and it’s against the company’s values to provide more to one subset than another – even if that means forgoing some extra cash from console manufacturers.

“We’ll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody’s paying us money for that,” Iwinski said. “It’s definitely against our values. We are not doing that.”
