343 Industries: Halo Infinite is definitely Halo 6

Halo fans can rest assured; Halo Infinite will not be a prequel or spinoff, despite its title lacking a definitive number.

343 lead writer Jeff Easterling addressed the question during a recent 343 Social Stream on Mixer (at the 1:22:20 mark).

"It is Halo 6. You should just consider it Halo 6," said Easterling. "Don't think of it as a weird prequel kind of thing. It's the next story. It's the next chapter in what is going on."

Bethesda isn't done in the fight for console cross-play

Bethesda are back fighting the good fight for cross-play on console, with Elder Scrolls: Legends becoming the latest title to raise the issue.

In an interview with Game Informer, Bethesda's senior VP of global marketing Pete Hines drew a line in the sand when discussing the studio's card battle game.

"[The Elder Scrolls Legends] is a strategy card game that encompasses both single and multiplayer. It is both cross-platform play and cross-platform progress.

"It is our intention in order for the game to come out, it has to be those things on any system. We cannot have a game that works one way across everywhere else except for on this one thing."

Elder Scrolls: Legends has already released to mobile and PC, with a console release on the horizon.

Blizzard has officially released World Of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth, although some players are having a hard time logging in to the new expansion. It's most likely just a sever issue as masses of fans try and dive in to the new content.

Blizzard has confirmed one of the issues on Twitter, stating "We're currently investigating an issue affecting our authentication servers, which may result in failed or slow login attempts". It's unclear at this stage how fast a fix will be distributed but Blizzard will no doubt be putting all of their effort in to stabilizing the problem as fast as possible.
