The main thing for the weekend (March 4-5)

Respawn Entertainment has left the creative director, and Ubisoft, according to rumors, has decided to close some offices in Europe — we tell you what happened in the gaming industry this weekend.

▪️Ryan Lastimosa has announced that he is leaving Respawn Entertainment. He got a job at the studio 13 years ago and has held the position of creative director for the last four months. Lastimosa did not tell why he quit and what he intends to do now.

Obsidian Entertainment has announced that more than 5 million people have played in The Outer Worlds. The RPG overcame this milestone three and a half years after its release — the game was released on October 25, 2019 on PC and consoles.

The ResetEra forum published a copy of an email that Ubisoft management allegedly sent to employees. It says that the company is going to close a number of European offices, and one of them — Ubisoft Benelux — will stop working on April 1. Later, in a comment to the NME portal, a Ubisoft representative confirmed that the publisher was “engaged in the strategic reorganization of subsidiaries in Europe,” but declined to share details.

▪️Another rumor was recently shared by the insider Rythian. Citing “three reliable and almost always reliable sources,” he said that Sony plans to acquire Take-Two Interactive. According to an insider, the company will do this if Microsoft manages to buy Activision Blizzard. At the time of writing the news, the market value of Take-Two is $19.68 billion.
