The Walking Dead will return for a third season

The Walking Dead will be back for a third season, Telltale Games president Kevin Bruner and comic creator Robert Kirkman confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con.

The fourth of the game’s five second season episodes was released last week.

There was no mention of story details or a release date for season three.

Telltale Games is working on a Game of Thrones title, as well as Tales from the Borderlands. It's probably a safe assumption that The Wolf Among Us will get a second season as well.

Battlefield Hardline's story involves a framed cop going rogue to clear his name

The singleplayer campaign in Battlefield Hardline concerns a cop who is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, and his journey through the criminal underworld to clear his name.

As reported by Polygon, the story was detailed by narrative consultant Wendy Calhoun (Nashville, Justified) at Comic-Con 2014.

"We start off with the narrative of two cops who are good cops, and one really wants to prove himself," Calhoun explained.

Dragon Age: Inquisition release delayed six weeks

The release of Dragon Age: Inquisition has been delayed six weeks in order to give it an extra layer of polish, EA has announced.

Inquisition was due out on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC on October 9, but will now hit on November 21.

“We appreciate the enormous support we’ve received from all of you to get to this point, and while this extra few weeks may not seem like a lot, I know the game you’ll play will be all the better for it,” said executive producer Mark Darrah.

The Evil Within is now coming out earlier than expected

Bethesda will release Shinji Mikami's new survival horror game The Evil Within a week earlier than was previously announced.

Speaking at QuakeCon, Bethesda PR and marketing boss Pete Hines said The Evil Within will now be released on October 16 in New Zealand. It had previously been confirmed for October 21.

The change in date will mean The Evil Within is no longer being released on the same day as 2K's Evolve, which is on a hot streak after picking up numerous accolades at E3.

Battlefield Hardline delayed to 2015

The release of Battlefield Hardline has been pushed to 2015 so the game may be improved and expanded, DICE has announced.

Feedback from the game’s beta got DICE thinking about what else it could put in the game, said studio VP Karl Magnus Troedsson.

“The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing,” he said.

“However, there was only one problem. We would need more time. Time that we didn’t have if we decided to move forward with launching in just a couple of months.

“We decided that the right thing to do was to take more time to ensure Hardline is the best, most innovative Battlefield experience we can give to you, our fans.”

Doom probably won't be publicly unveiled until next year

Bethesda Softworks marketing boss Pete Hines has hinted that the public probably won’t lay eyes on Bethesda’s new Doom title until next year.

Speaking with PC Gamer, Hines said that QuakeCon attendees only saw footage of the in-development FPS because he wanted to quash doubts about the state of the game. However, it isn’t ready to be inspected by the Internet at large.

"I really wanted to put something out there that in a strong way said, ‘Id is working on something that we think is really cool,’" said Hines.
