Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 revealed by Activision

Well, that didn't take very long: just about a month after we heard rumors that Black Ops 4 would be 2018's Call of Duty game, Treyarch has come out and confirmed it. Of course, that we'd see Black Ops 4 in 2018 was a pretty safe assumption even without the rumors, as it's Treyarch's turn to put out a Call of Duty game and the Black Ops sub-series has been a successful one for Activision.

Spyro trilogy expected next on Activision’s retro revival list

Last week, we heard that Activision's return to Crash Bandicoot with the N. Sane Trilogy was so successful that the company might be planning to release a new game in the series this year. That success may also lead Activision to revisit other franchises from the past, with the next rumored to be the original Spyro trilogy.

Destiny 2 PC is the new port gold standard

Bungie has been away from the PC game for quite some time. The last Bungie title to launch on PC was Halo 2 way back in 2004, but porting duties were largely handled by a team within Microsoft Game Studios. Of course, back before the Halo series took off, Bungie developed exclusively for Mac and Windows, and with Destiny 2, we're seeing the studio return to the platform at long last. How does the port of Destiny 2 hold up after Bungie's 13-year absence from PC?
