    • Even before the launch of CD Projekt Red's next big game, Cyberpunk 2077, business is booming at the Polish studio. The company has released its latest earnings report, and it shows that the studio had the strongest fourth quarter of any year since the company was founded decades ago. For 2019, CDPR posted revenue of 521 million PLN, which works out $125 million USD. That's up a whopping 44 percent compared to the year prior. CDPR said the uptick in sales was primarily driven by the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Switch, which sold around 700,000 copies. The launch of the free-to-play game Gwent for mobile devices also helped improve overall CDPR sales during the year, the company said. The game is free, but it makes money from microtransactions.

    • Spoiler Warning: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has surprised fans of its campaign with its third multiplayer season with the reveal that Alex is still alive. The campaign protagonist, who seemingly sacrificed himself at the end of the game, apparently lived, although he lost a leg. Now, the game's narrative director has responded to a fan worried that the game is wasting potential set-up for a sequel not to worry, as there's plenty more for them to explore. This article discusses some story details from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's campaign and contains spoilers for its ending. Responding to a player who expressed that they wished that the series would "save some of the characters and story for the next game," narrative director Taylor Kurosaki tweeted that they aren't "stealing from whatever comes next," and that there's still plenty to be explored in any potential sequels.

    • Stardew Valley is getting a new fruit in its next update, and it's all thanks to a Twitter user poll. The beloved indie farming game will add banana trees soon, meaning you'll be able to grow and harvest the fruit in-game. Bananas beat out mangoes, avocadoes, and passionfruit, although developer Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone noted that mangoes were the runner-up on Twitter in a way that suggests that they, too, could come to the game eventually. It's not yet clear when this update will launch, or what else it might contain. We know that a big 1.5 update for Stardew Valley is being planned, but bananas could be added in a smaller, incremental update. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • As part of The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red's latest earnings report, the company shared some insight into its workforce. Specifically, the company provided an update on how many people it employs, their gender, and more. "CD Projekt embraces diversity in the belief that a workplace which respect diversity is the cornerstone of openness and trust.

    • There are few tunes in gaming more iconic than Final Fantasy VII's "The Prelude," and the new Final Fantasy VII Remake, which speaks to the immense and difficult task of adapting the soundtrack for modern audiences. Episode 4 of the excellent Inside Final Fantasy VII Remake video series is all about the soundtrack, explaining how Nobuo Uematsu's music has been reworked for the Remake. Inside Final Fantasy VII Remake Episode 1: Introduction Episode 2: Story and Characters Episode 3: Combat and Gameplay When work on the remake began, producer Yoshinori Kitase put together a video of all the events in the game, set to the music from the original PlayStation release. It outlined his vision for the game, but co-director Motomu Toriyama decided that a modern approach was called for. The game thus has a dynamic soundtrack, where the music dynamically shifts. Keiji Kawamori talks about how the music on the soundtrack needed to be repurposed for different scenarios, depending on the tensions and intent of each scene, and composer Mitsuto Suzuki talks about how interactive music is becoming more popular, and how it works in this new game. In some scenes, three versions of a track are playing in parallel, and the game crossfades between them depending on what the action calls for. "It's like a really top-class DJ performance," Suzuki says. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has issued a statement regarding the impact of the COVID-19 global crisis on its business. In the company's latest earnings report, the Polish company said it does not expect the pandemic to have a significant impact on its business for the upcoming period and beyond, though it could impact how people buy games. CDPR said it took "preventative action" to try to mitigate the the spread of the disease, which included moving most of its employees to a work-from-home setup (a skeleton crew remains at the office to work on critical tasks on a rotating shift basis), cancelling business travel, and forbidding people to enter the company's offices who came from overseas. More specifically, CDPR pointed out that it canceled all of its scheduled appearances at trade shows and conferences, including PAX East and GDC. Additionally, it conducted business meetings virtually instead of in-person. What's more, before employees were sent home, CDPR installed hand sanitizer stations and increased the air ventilation at its studio. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
