Rocksteady Studios Skips Out on E3 2019



Batman: Arkham Knight - Rocksteady Studios

Rocksteady Studios has announced that it will not be in attendance at E3 2019.

Co-founder Sefton Hill confirmed on Twitter that the studio would not be appearing at the conference. The studio’s next game is highly anticipated.

Last year, Rocksteady confirmed that the studio’s next project is not a Superman game, which was heavily rumored to be revealed back during E3 2018.

With nothing to announce at the moment, perhaps the studio’s next game will coincide with the release of the next PlayStation and Xbox.

Rocksteady Studios released Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2009, followed by Batman: Arkham City in 2011, and Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015, as well as Batman: Arkham VR in 2016. Additionally, current generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of the first two games were released back in 2016, titled Batman: Return to Arkham.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players



Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
