McFarlane [Toys] was created so I could make cool stuff just like this,” said Todd McFarlane, owner and CEO of McFarlane Toys. “Without saying too much about the new … Read More »

It was during last year’s earnings call that news broke that a full sequel was in the works so it’s not a far … Read More »

It appears that fans of the Titanfall series have already been given a timeframe for the next instalment, which follows on from the success of the initial game, which released in March 2014.

Thankfully this rumor has since been proven to be nothing more than a big steaming pile of Dreg droppings by none other than Deej (Bungie Community Manager) over on his Twitter account, see below Tweet for his very concise response. No. https://t.co/XarqJx5z9I — DeeJ (@DeeJ_BNG) January 25, 2016   Now even … Read More »
