Gaming companies continue to be attacked by cyber criminals who steal various important information. Together with Capcom, the hackers also got Crytek. The crooks stole documents from the German studio, according to which it has plans to have not yet announced re-releases of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3.
The development of updated versions of games for personal computers, as well as PS4, Xbox One and Switch consoles, according to a leaked contract, is being carried out by Saber Interactive, a part of the Embracer Group holding. According to Crytek’s plans, the first part of the trilogy was supposed to receive certification on May 15, 2020, the second on July 31, and the third on November 30. However, due to the pandemic, all deadlines were seriously shifted.
In addition, it follows from the contract that Crytek will spend a total of $ 10 million on the updated trilogy with ray tracing, volumetric lighting, improved detailing and other technological goodies:
Crysis: $ 4.45 million
Crysis 2: $ 2.875 million
Crysis 3: $ 2.675 million
Legendary developer Bioware and Ubisoft set up new studio
Mike Laidlaw, Creative Director of the Dragon Age series, has founded a new studio, Yellow Brick Games, which also includes people from Ubisoft, Bioware, Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard.
Oddly enough, industry veterans have no intention of developing AAA projects. Instead, the team focused on creating a downgraded game that is sure to surprise everyone with its innovative ideas. In general, a kind of indie on steroids, on which 15 people are already working.
Unfortunately, Laidlaw did not specify what the new game will be about and for which platforms it is being developed.
Samsung will stop releasing flagship smartphones
The reason is trivial – the company sees no reason to make a separate line of flagships with a stylus. It is much more logical, according to Samsung, to add support for an electronic pen in other devices.
At the same time, it is not a fact that the conditional Galaxy S21 Ultra will receive a hole for the stylus – it is also possible that the accessory will be used as an optional accessory.
