Just one more day and the weekend is here, you got this gamers! To get you over that final hurdle, here’s some gaming news to sit down with, including Microsoft’s perplexing statement that it believes the Elder Scrolls 6 is just a “mid-sized” game.
Away from Microsoft, a dataminer has given us our first look at Ghost’s real face from Modern Warfare 2, and Blizzard is asking fans to remain patient regarding PvE modes for Overwatch 2. All that and more if you read on.
In an attempt to convince regulators that its acquisition of Activision Blizzard is all hunky dory, it’s made a pretty bizarre claim about The Elder Scrolls 6. When talking about exclusives, Microsoft claims that its interest is only in making “mid-sized games” exclusive, claiming that massive game like Call of Duty and niche games like Psychonauts 2 don’t benefit from being locked to one console. Microsoft also claims it often considers single-player titles “mid-sized,” and lumps in titles like Redfall, Starfield, and the aformentioned Elder Scrolls 6.
Modern Warfare 2 Datamine Reveals What Ghost Looks Like Without His Mask
Modern Warfare 2 is a pretty straight forward title, though one mystery that has always withstood the test of time is what Ghost actually looks like under that mask. Well, it’s a mystery no longer, as Ghost’s face has been revealed by a Modern Warfare 2 dataminer who discovered there’s actually a face model underneath the mask. Despite sounding all gruff, mysterious, and half the Internet having the hots for him, Ghost unfortunately just looks like a pretty average bloke.
Overwatch 2 Players “May Have To Wait A Bit” For PvE News

Now that things have settled down somewhat, fans have been wondering when that promised PvE experience will actually get here. Overwatch 2 executive producer Jared Neuss told one fan on Twitter that we’ll unfortunately “have to wait a bit” for the mode, as all attention is currently on the launch of Season 2 next month.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s Fuecoco Is Apparently The “Most Broken Starter In Nuzlocke History”

For Nuzlockers, it’s recommended that players should ban Fuecoco from their runs due to his all round dominance of the game, while both Flutter Mane and Houndstone have been banned from competitive OU for being absolute monsters.
