MLB The Show 21 will be coming to Playstation and Xbox at launch for the first time ever.
For the first time ever, MLB The Show will be coming to Xbox. Playstation has long held the upper hand for baseball games as Xbox has never seen a major baseball title come to their platforms. All that’s changing on April 20th when MLB The Show 21 launches on Playstation and Xbox consoles at the same time. An interesting new feature Playstation Studios is implementing is the introduction of cross-platform saves for those of you lucky gamers who own both PS5 and Xbox Series consoles. MLB The Show 21 is launching with 3 editions including the Jackie Robinson Deluxe Edition which gives you an exclusive New Era cap as well as an immense amount of in-game swag.
Call of Duty: Warzone will continue
Ever since 2003, Call of Duty has been cranking out video games faster than you actually getting sick of them. With 24 games in their arsenal, they created Call of Duty: Warzone in March 2020, right at the beginning of the pandemic, a free-to-play battle Royale game similar to Fortnite. Just like with the release of Cold War, Activision confirmed that the uber-popular Warzone will be getting new content related to the 25th instalment which is set to launch later this year.
No Next-Gen Switch any time soon
With the releases of Sony’s Playstation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and S, we are officially in the next generation. While the PS5 and Xbox are primarily seen as the main consoles, Nintendo’s Switch has been powering through steadily ever since its 2017 release after the failure of the Wii-U. For years, there have been rumours about Nintendo releasing an upgraded version of the Pro with possible 4K displays and a more powerful CPU but those rumours have been officially laid to rest…for now. At a recent investor Q&A Nintendo President, Shuantaro Furukawa was asked about the company revealing an upgraded Switch console to which he simply responded “Not anytime soon.”. Well, there it is straight from the President’s mouth. With the Switch recently surpassing the sales of the 3DS, it’s safe to say it might be a years before Nintendo reveals a new and improved Switch.
EA will not stop making Star Wars games.
For years, EA has held the exclusive licence for games based on the Star Wars franchise and has given us the LEGO Star Wars franchise, Battlefront and the critically acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. All that seemed to change when in January, Ubisoft announced that they were working with Lucasfilm Games to create an open world Star Wars game that seemed to confirm the long-gestating rumour that EA’s exclusivity with the Star Wars franchise was going to an end. With Ubisoft taking the helm of the Millennium Falcon, fans thought that EA’s time making Star Wars games was up but EA CEO, Andrew Wilson, wanted to put those rumours to rest in a recent company call. "You should expect us to continue to invest in our Star Wars relationship. It's been very profitable... and we're excited by what we'll be able to do in the future. But you shouldn't read this as necessarily us building the less titles." Andrew Wilson said, putting the rumours to rest. The Nintendo Switch is powerful enough to keep running for a least a few years but don't expect to go into 2023 without at least an announcement about an upgraded Switch.
