Anyway, this week’s news includes:

  • Minecraft Earth is closing in June
  • Bethesda tweets about Elder Scrolls
  • Hitman 3 will launch with trilogy-wide optimizations

The sound problems continue, while Jonah complains about not being able to live stream Dragon Quest XI; this issue is something that’s frustrated PlayStation, PC and Switch gamers for the past few years, and there doesn’t seem to be a reason why the restrictions are there.

Otherwise, the news of the week includes:

  • Mass Effect and Dragon Age leads leave BioWare
  • Halo Infinite now planned for a Fall 2021 release
  • Square Enix delists original Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age as S version comes out
