Area 52 Conspiracy

The developers of the much-maligned RollerCoaster Tycoon World, Area 52 Games, is now a former developer of RollerCoaster Tycoon World, as the project has changed hands for the 3rd time, confirming that the new Atari executives have literally no idea what they're doing. The cursed baton has now been passed to an unnamed developer: the developer's claim that they don't want to be bombarded with fan letters, but I imagine the real reason is that the developer's don't want people to know their terrible reputation when this terrible-looking game launches.

Speaking of publishers in turmoil, Konami's also done a bit of a bad move: after cancelling Silent Hills and burning it's bridges with Kojima Productions (What's left now? PES?) Konami have now claimed that the future of the Metal Gear Solid franchise lies on mobile, in an interview with Japanese news site Nikkei Trendy Net, who sound like the coolest journalists around. The company claimed that "Our main platform will be mobile" with their games following a horrid-sounding "Pay as you play model" (ONE DOLLAR ONE HOUR!), although they confirmed that PES (Or Winning Eleven, as it's called in Japan) will still be a major console franchise. It's an interesting (And probably bad) decision, but we'll have to see how it pans out.

Still, we all know how terrible Atari's future looks!

Trailer of the Day today goes to the LEGO Jurassic World Trailer 2, which is a pretty short trailer that showcases a load of the movie's moments in LEGO form. There's also the gameplay of playable dinosaurs, but the biggest piece of news in the trailer is the release date confirmation: it'll be launching for current and last-gen consoles, plus handhelds, on June 12th!
