"Karl Slatoff has provided some details in regards to his company’s plans for the PS4 and Xbox One. According to a report by Video Gamer on Oct. 30, the president of Take-Two Interactive told investors during a conference call that several of it subsidiaries are currently working on next-generation video games.Karl Slatoff stated that the company has “more than 10 unique titles in our pipeline for next-generation consoles.” He also hinted that some of the projects are slated to come out by the end of the fiscal year that will end on March 31, 2015. Finally, the president of Take-Two Interactive teased that some of the new titles will be revealed in the next several months."

"Several agency job postings for an unnamed British developer matching text of Rocksteady career openings says the developer’s current project “has been tipped to be one of the most successful games of 2014,” suggesting we’ll be seeing Rocksteady’s next game next year.But Rocksteady’s title is likely another “Arkham” game. Kevin Conroy, longtime voice of Batman,accidentally let it slip that he was working on a new “Arkham” title that was not “Arkham Origins.” Conroy was not voicing Batman in “Arkham Origins” as it was a prequel, and developers wanted a younger-sounding voice actor; if he were returning to voice Batman, I would think the game might follow “Arkham City.”"


"People Can Fly, developers of “Bulletstorm” and “Gears of War Judgment” have been given a new name from their corporate overlords. The studio is now called “Epic Games Poland,” and they’ve been assigned to “Fortnite,” a game that apparently still exists.Epic as a “global company” is working collaboratively on “Fortnite,” with multiple studios working on the title. The game was last seen in 2011 and was supposed to be a more casual game exclusive to PC."
