February 5, 2019 Witcher author Andrezj Sapkowski has reportedly settled with CD Projekt Red over a request for extra royalties.

Officially and painstakingly selected by VG247, these are the best Xbox One games. We saw loads of potentially great Xbox games at E3. Returning greats like Halo Infinite and Gears of War 5 were super exciting, while new contenders like Cyberpunk 2077 put the cherry on the cake. But if you’re here, you’re more interested in what you can play right now. The latest addition to the list is Dontnod’s flawed, but supremely interesting, Vampyr. There’s not much else like it available on Xbox One, and fans of Victorian gothic ambience and hefty exposition should definitely give it a look. Earlier this year we added Capcom’s life-consuming action-RPG Monster Hunter World to the list, as well as overnight streaming sensation Fortnite: Battle Royale. Microsoft’s first AAA-exclusive of the year – Sea of Thieves – dropped in March. Despite some launch issues, it’s such swashbuckling fun that it’s made our list too. And now, in … [Read more...] about The best Xbox One games in 2019: every must-play on Xbox One S and One X
When we reflected on 2018, we realized that it was an unusually quiet year for big-budget games on PC. It was the rare year where some of the most-talked-about games, like Red Ded Redemption 2 and God of War, were console exclusives. Will 2019 go the same way, or should we expect the PC to get more of 2019's extravagant multiplatform games? I've pulled out the biggest hitters from our massive list of the new games of 2019, looked at the field of console exclusives, and spent some time guessing at the surprise announcements that could drop new games in our laps by the end of 2019. It looks to me like 2019 is shaping up to be quite a bit like 2018, with many, many good games, but few blockbuster PC exclusives. The PS4 looks like it could again lead with the games everyone's talking about, at least if The Last of Us Part 2 and Death Stranding make it out this year.But there are a few things that could put PC games—even PC exclusives—in the spotlight this year. Cyberpunk … [Read more...] about How does 2019 look for PC blockbusters and exclusives?
Two of the biggest videogame properties based on fictional novels are The Witcher and Metro 2033. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best games ever made, and there’s a new Netflix series on the way in 2019. Metro has a new highly-anticipated game in the series due next year, Metro Exodus. However, the authors behind the two series don’t appear to get along, as Metro 2033 author Dmitry Glukhovsky has called The Witcher creator Andrzej Sapkowski “an old fool” during an interview. The interview with Dmitry Glukhovsky was spotted by the gaming website Ostrog, and the video can be seen in full here, although note that it is in Russian. The author was asked about The Witcher creator Andrzej Sapkowski, and Sapkowski’s recent attempts to get a further USD$16 million from developer CD Projekt for continued use of his property. Sapkowski originally sold the rights to The Witcher franchise for … [Read more...] about Metro 2033 Author Thinks The Witcher Creator is “An Old Fool”
