Skybound Games Finishing The Walking Dead’s Final Episodes



Skybound Games

Skybound Games is taking over development for the remainder of Telltale’s The Walking Dead series.

Skybound’s announcement came via Twitter where it stated that it hopes to “wrap up Clem’s story right.”

For those unfamiliar with Skybound’s history, the studio is owned by Walking Dead co-creator, Robert Kirkman. The developer has experience with titles like The Long Dark, but also created a number of Walking Dead board games.

News of Telltale’s demise came at an inopportune time to say the least, as the studio was only two episodes in to The Walking Dead’s final season. After fan outcry, the studio stated that it would look into alternative options to ensure its flagship franchise would see a definitive end.

Now that the final three episodes are in the hands of a studio familiar with the license, a light is finally at the end of the tunnel.

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.
