Kirby And The Forgotten Land will have a collaboration, opening on March 25
Although it was only revealed not too long ago, Kirby and the Forgotten Land is now has a release date of March 25, just over two months to go.

It has also been confirmed that the game will have co-op, allowing players to team up with a friend of Waddle Dee, albeit only through local multiplayer.
Twisted Metal Reboot Rumors from developer Lucid Games of Destruction AllStars has been around for a while, but now it looks like Lucid may have left the project altogether. Reports from today show that Sony just acquired Firesprite Studio has now taken over development, with key developers from Lucid moving in to stay on the project. These reports do not address potential reasons for the change, but could be due to the poor performance of Destruction AllStars.
Stalker 2 Hit with 7 month delay, December 8 release
Bad news for Stalker fans as it has been confirmed that Stalker 2 will push back a whopping seven months and will be released in December of this year. The developers haven’t made it clear why the game was delayed, but promised fans it was done to “give you a game that can live up to expectations”. Stalker fans have been waiting for a new game since 2009, so an extra seven months doesn’t seem too bad in that context.
Expect more cross-generational games as Sony orders 1 million PS4s
Cross-generation games don’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon as Sony tries to combat its PS5 shortage by produce more PS4. Sony originally planned to discontinue PS4 production by the end of 2021, but chip shortages caused by the pandemic and an increase in expansion rates have made PS5 production much slower than expected. Instead, Sony has now ordered an additional 1 million PS4, which means cross-generation games will likely be around for at least a few more years, if not longer.
