Game Informer teasing 'old school' game reveal
Surprising series and developer combo in this week's issue
US retailer mag Game Informer has started teasing its next issue, which is said to feature a new game that "old school gamers will freak out over."
The mysterious title, which is set for reveal this Thursday, January 5, is said to be a new instalment in an established series, but "the real nuts" of the surprise is apparently its developer.
Executive editor Andrew Reiner tweeted: "Our next cover is another 'what the?' type of reveal. I suspect old school gamers will freak out over this one."
Users on the NeoGAF forum have already speculated the title could be a Road Rash update from Criterion, or a Blade Runner title from Valve (remember that leaked concept art?)
The reveal's anyone's guess at the moment, though Game Informer has since said the title in question is not a first-person shooter. That rules out Half-Life 3 by Lionhead, then.
Ow goodie, goodie, goodie!!!
how abt BLACK II from criterion BLACK was one BADASS shooter from criterion for PS2
Rumor: Star Wars Battlefront 3 On Next Cover Of Game Informer
A site covering all things Star Wars related picked up on a trail of breadcrumbs left by Game Informer hinting that the January 5th reveal of the next issue of the popular print magazine will be the month that Star Wars: Battlefront 3 officially gets revealed.
Okay, so here's how it goes: Gloom Walkers first noticed that Game Informer picked up on some tweets that lead them to publishing a rumor article about Battlefront 3 and the possibility of the game being in development at Spark Studios. Next up, Game Informer did a wish list of the top things they would like to see in the next Battlefront game. This followed on the news that Game Informer would be unveiling a top game in an upcoming issue of the magazine.
All right, so this rumor is kind of thin but it the evidence leading up to the rumor seems plausible enough. Personally, I doubt that the reveal will be Star Wars: Battlefront 3...there's just nothing for developers or publishers to gain from the series as a technically evolved franchise unless they plan to do a quick cash job. I would hate to see a Battlefront game made just for the sake of being made, it would only hurt the franchise and the reputation of future Battlefront games.
Then again, even if it is Battlefront 3 it's possible that it could be revealed for a next-gen release, which would be pretty exciting, and the game could get the proper treatment it deserves with all the bells and whistles required to make an epic Star Wars game.
So the rumor was true, there is a Battlefront 3 coming up, too bad its from Spark Studios.
