The Next Segment – EVOLVE Controversy, Bethesda at E3, Daybreak Games Lying Off Workers

By   /   Feb 17, 2015

This week ‘The Next Segment’ opens up with the news of Bethesda Softworks hosting its first ever E3 conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Jun. 14, 2015. What are your speculations; Fallout 4, The Elder Scrolls VI, DOOM 4 footage, Dishonored 2, a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, or something else entirely?

It is common knowledge that Sony Online Entertainment, the developer behind Planetside 2, DC Universe Online, Everquest, and H1Z1 has been sold off and renamed Daybreak Game Company. However, it looks like the company is not performing well as several of the former staff members were laid off.

One of the biggest hits of this week, Turtle Rock Studios’ 1 vs. 4 shooter EVOLVE had to face huge criticism for a lack of content in the game’s final build and over $150 worth of DLC at the game’s launch. Poorly done 2K Games, poorly done indeed!

Lastly, Digital Extremes has announced a new Dungeons & Dragons game dubbed Sword Coast: Legends which is slated to release exclusively on PC later this year.

That’s pretty much all for this week at The Next Segment. Make sure to tune-in next week for your weekly take of gaming news.
