Back in 2002 the Swedish developer DICE shocked the world with Battlefield 1942, now it looks like it's time again to revisit World War II in Battlefield 1944.
Rumor has it that DICE is working on the next Battlefield game and apparently it will be set in WWII once again. This isn't the first time that a rumor about the next Battlefield game either being set in or including World War gameplay has gotten out. In March the supposed DLC plans for Battlefield 5 came out showing that the game would include such settings. And a Swiss retailer has listed Battlefield 5 as a WWI shooter.
This time the rumor has it that a full new Battlefield game will take place in WWII, Battlefield 1944. A leaked picture online shows the release window, what maps will be in it, and when the beta starts. The game itself is scheduled for release in March 2017, less than a year away from now. Those who pre-order will get the "Nostalgia Map-Pack" which will include Back To El Alamein and more fan favorites, and a special skin for the M1 Carbine.
The early beta of Battlefield 1944 is set to begin as soon as this November.
But remember, this is still just a rumor. DICE has not said anything about this and they will have an official announcement on May 6 about Battlefield 5. This remains a rumor until DICE has officially announced a new WWII Battlefield.
While Game of Thrones is just days away from its Season 6 debut, other members of the cast may have their eye on other major projects. Maisie Willaims, who portrays Arya Stark on HBO's juggernaut fantasy series has been rumored for the role of Wolfsbane for about a month now, and she just recently revealed her thoughts on the casting rumors.
I can’t say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, [and] to be a part of the Marvel family,” Williams said about possibly joining the X-Men spin-off when asked recently by EW. “New Mutants looks absolutely incredible and I’ve always loved the idea of spin-offs and [director] Joshua Boone is incredibly talented. So, yeah, sign me up.
None of this is set in stone, but her reaction would seem to indicate that there is something cooking beneath the surface.
Wolfsbane is a Scottish mutant with the ability to transform into a wolf at will. IMO, Maisie is pretty much a perfect fit for the role.
By now, if you aren't taking rumors on the internet with a grain of salt, it's your own fault. That said, upcoming PS4 exclusive, Horizon: Zero Dawn is going to be delayed into "early 2017" according to industry insider, Shinobi602.
Well…Horizon: Zero Dawn's getting delayed to early 2017 from what I'm told.
Going to look splendid on PS4k though.

Shinobi602 is regarded as one of the most reliable industry insiders and has a good track record specifically with regards to Horizon: Zero Dawn (again, the grain of salt still applies). What's interesting here is that not only does he drop news of the delay (which is pretty common these days), he drops the tease of the still unconfirmed PS4.5/K.
By now, I think we all know that the PS4.5 is going to be a thing, seeing as how dev kits have been sent out to studios. There are plenty of rumors about the console in regards to specs and cost, but it still remains to be seen if any of it comes to fruition.
As far as Horizon: Zero Dawn goes, news of a delay wouldn't be all that surprising considering we haven't heard much about the game over the past six months or so.
For many DC fans, Batman v Superman came up short. How short depends on who you ask. Even we at GameZone are torn on the issue. Some of us like it, others do not. But there might be a reason for any convolution the movie's plot. A re-write. Apparently, Batman v Superman wasn't going to be Batman v Superman at all, according to this rumor.
The original story was going to be a story called World's Finest, where a retired Bruce Wayne dons the cape and cowl once again to investigate the destruction of Wayne Enterprises by a group of terrorists, enlisting the help of the Man of Steel along the way.
A few details from the plot remain consistent, like Lex Luthor taking the body of General Zod for his own use. But that use ends up having a whole different context in World's Finest.
Here's an excerpt from the intro of the alleged story.
The opening scenes involve a terrorist group that has taken over an African village, and in the process mass massacres — men/women/children — were performed in the name of religious supremacy. Amidst the growing terror, news of it gets to the world, and reporters are sent to the scene to investigate. Lois Lane was given access to interview the terrorist leader, but during the interview, passions grow wild. The crew that came with Lois Lane are murdered one by one, except for her and Jimmy Olsen (photographer), due to the fact that the terrorists wanted their story told, and they want Lois and Jimmy to memorialize their conquests. Shortly after the murders, Superman arrives in the village. Superman manages to destroy enemy armory and tanks, essentially running off the terrorist army. Superman ultimately gets to the headquarters and successfully rescues Lois and Jimmy. He returns to the village to rescue innocent villagers, but while doing so the terrorist leader detonates a bomb; killing themselves and taking out hundreds of innocent people in the process.
