Gaming News and Info

Bungie / 343 / Halo

Destiny Are you anxious to play the beta for Destiny? If so, you only have 2 months to wait. Bungie announced this week on Twitter that the Destiny Beta will be happening sometime in July. The actual date will be announced at the E3 Press Conference in June.

Also mentioned in the report is Activision’s planned budget for funding and promotion of Destiny. The grand total is a whopping 500 million dollars. While this may seem (very) high, Activision claims additional money for future work will be much lower with the infrastructure already having been built.

Other Gaming News

Need For Speed For the first time since 1997 the Need for Speed franchise will not be releasing a new title this year. The new developers for the game, Ghost Games have decided to take the time to create a more innovative title than games of the past. While the game is already heavily into development, they are listening to fan feedback and want to make it better for them. As the first yearly franchise to stop pumping out games and take the time to deliver a better experience for the fans, they should be applauded. Now if other studios would follow the same idea the quality of some of our favorite games would improve and become even better.
Watch_Dogs For those of you getting Watch_Dogs, the trailer for the Season Pass was released showing you exactly what to expect post launch with the pass.
