In this episode of GameSpot News, Call Of Duty: Vanguardfilesize might spare you from deleting other games, change your Battle.net handle for free, BlizzCon is cancelled, and there’s another Pikmin game.
Here’s what you need to know in video games today. Call Of Duty: Vanguard’s install sizes are reportedly 30%-50% smaller at launch than previous games in the series on PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. That’s not to say it’s a small install-it'll still require 56 to 93 gigs free, depending on the system. It might finally be time for you to uninstall Modern Warfare or Cold War to make space. Don’t forget to plan for more Warzone installs when the new Pacific map launches.
Blizzard's is still seeing the fallout of toxic workplace allegations against it, with the latest developments being the cancellation of BlizzCon this year, and Overwatch character McCree's name changing to Cole Cassidy. McCree previously carried the name of an employee who was ousted from the company amid sexual harassment and discrimination allegations at Activision Blizzard. To go along with Cole's new name, players can now change their BattleTags for Battle.net for free for a limited time. Finally, Division 2 post-launch content has been delayed to February 2022 and Nintendo and Niantic have announced their next mobile app, Pikmin Bloom, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of Nintendo's nature-based franchise.
