Pokemon Legends Arceus is now available for preload on the Nintendo eShop and will reward 60 Heavy Balls if done before 28 Jan 2022, an Overwatch 2 Producer has explained the games delay, and Hitman 3 is now available on Steam.

Hitman 3 on Steam

Hitman 3, the latest installment in the iconic stealth action game series, has finally made its way to Steam. After a year of being exclusive to the Epic Games Store, players on Steam can now enjoy the thrilling and immersive experience of being an elite assassin. If you've been eagerly waiting for its release on Steam, the wait is over!

It's worth noting that Hitman 3 has received mixed reviews on Steam, and one of the reasons for this is its price point. Some players feel that the game is a bit pricey compared to its predecessors. However, despite this criticism, Hitman 3 remains a fantastic game that comes highly recommended by both fans and critics.

If you've been a fan of the Hitman series or enjoy stealth-based gameplay with a rich and immersive story, Hitman 3 on Steam offers the same experience as on other platforms. The game features stunning graphics, intricate level design, and a variety of creative assassination methods to explore. It's definitely a must-play for any fan of the franchise.

Overwatch 2 Producer on Delay

In recent news, Tracy Kennedy, one of the producers of Overwatch, responded to a tweet by Wowhead discussing the delay of Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4. The tweet stated that Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick cited these delays as having a principal effect on declining stock prices and the company's decision to sell to Microsoft.

In her response, Tracy Kennedy shed light on some behind-the-scenes issues, hinting at mismanagement within the company. She mentioned a random project for Overwatch 1 that the team was forced to work on, only for it to be abruptly canceled, resulting in months of lost development time for Overwatch 2. She also mentioned high turnover rates within the teams, with employees citing Bobby Kotick as a reason for their departure.

With Microsoft's acquisition plans for Activision Blizzard now public, it appears that individuals within the company are becoming braver in voicing their concerns and criticism towards Bobby Kotick. This newfound confidence could lead to more revelations about the company's intricate inner workings and potentially shape the course of its future.

As fans eagerly await the release of Overwatch 2, these recent developments raise questions about the game's development and the potential impact of the change in leadership. Hopefully, this will lead to positive changes for the game and its dedicated community.
