Destiny 2 comes out in September and they haven't even announced it. (12 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: Really looking forward to RDR2 but it's odd that we're like 7 months after the debut trailer and nothing else. Really wonder if they actually launch it this year too. (22 minutes ago)
Activision doesn't "own" Blizzard Entertainment. Activision Blizzard owns Blizzard Entertainment. They didn't buy Blizzard. That was a merger. (55 minutes ago)

It's not like the sell it anymore anyway. "Very generous" seems a bit overstated. And what we know of their "free reign" is probably less than informed than you think. (57 minutes ago)
