Electronic Arts have a number of studios that are working on various IPs and projects. One of the more recently established development studios, EA Motive, is now without a studio head. Jade Raymond has officially taken herself out of the company with Electronic Arts making the official statement earlier today. Now it remains to be seen if the studio will receive a new head along with what adventure is next for Jade Raymond.
Gearbox has a new series on the way, and while we don’t know if it’s a truly new IP or something licensed, it’s going to be a “tent-pole franchise for the company.” It’s also going to be a family-friendly one, which is in stark contrast to the studio’s historically adult-oriented games.
Jade Raymond has left EA. After founding Motive Studios under the publisher three years ago, Raymond is on the way out for as-yet-unnamed new ventures. Samantha Ryan will now oversee the studio, alongside the mobile, BioWare, and Maxis divisions she currently presides over.
One of Konami’s biggest IPs that grew a massive following was Silent Hill, a franchise that has been arguably gone stale past the point of Silent Hill 4: The Room.

Now, it appears that the franchise is getting a slight nod with the addition of Pyramid Head into Metal Gear Survive.

Intel has taken the rather unprecedented step of immediately denouncing claims by Charlie Demerjian that it has “pulled the plug on [its] struggling 10nm process.” Intel has tweeted a response to the SemiAccurate article just a few hours after its publication, saying that the reports are untrue and that all is well in the world of its 10nm node.
Being killed with a Zeus in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is one of the most rage-inducing things that can happen, and it’s no surprise that ex-professional Source player and popular streamer Mohamad ‘m0E’ Assad lost his cool when he got zapped passing through Z on Cache.
