A Quiet Place 2 Delayed Until September

A Quiet Place: Part 2 has been delayed until September. The horror sequel is the latest movie in the last few days to have its release pushed to the fall.

The movie will now hit theaters on September 17, 2021. A Quiet Place: Part 2 was originally scheduled for March 20, 2020 and was one of the first films to be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was initially pushed to September 2020, and then to April 2021. However, with theaters still closed across the world and the likely situation in April extremely uncertain, Paramount has opted to shift the film again.

A Quiet Place: Part 2 stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Djimon Hounsou, and Cillian Murphy. It’s written and directed by John Krasinski, who also helmed the first movie. Check out the trailer here. There’s also a third movie in the works, to be directed by Jeff Nichols (Midnight Special).

Godzilla Vs. Kong Trailer Rises Into View–Watch It Here

As promised earlier this week, the trailer for Godzilla Vs. Kong has arrived. Watch it in all its epic, heightened kaiju glory below, and then get excited thinking about the fact that GVK is currently scheduled to hit theaters and HBO Max on March 26.

Legendary Pictures teased the trailer earlier this week when they tweeted the first image of the movie’s poster, to which fans reacted positively. The studio also posted a sneak peek teaser of the trailer on Saturday, because it’s 2021 and teaser trailers for movie trailers is definitely a thing.

The trailer itself gives us our first real glimpse at the brewing battle between Godzilla, a giant lizard, and King Kong, a giant ape. According to the film’s official plot synopsis, “an enraged Godzilla” is “cutting a swath of destruction across the globe” when King Kong, on a spirit journey to find his true home with his orphan friend Jia, gets in its way. Unsurprisingly, the legendary monsters subsequently collide “in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.” But “the epic clash between the two titans–instigated by unseen forces–is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.”

Cyberpunk 2077 Had Biggest Digital Game Launch Ever – Report

Cyberpunk 2077’s launch may have been a mess for CD Projekt Red, but the game still managed to sell an incredible number of units–and many of those were digital. According to the analytics company SuperData, the game had the biggest digital game launch of all time, even when factoring in refunded copies.

SuperData estimates that Cyberpunk 2077 sold 10.2 million digital units during its launch period, making it the biggest game launch based on both digital revenue as well as overall units sold. This number does not take into account the refunded copies, but SuperData said the difference would not be significant enough to overturn the record. SuperData has occasionally had its data disputed, as was the case with Epic Games in early 2020.

The report said about 80% of the digital sales were on PC, which could account for why the refund totals didn’t make much of an impact on this record. The game’s worst problems were predominantly on PS4 and Xbox One, where crashing issues and poor performance led CD Projekt to apologize and even offer its own refunds in case retailers would not accept them. The game is not currently available to buy digitally for PlayStation systems. However, you can still find retail copies.

Cyberpunk 2077 Reportedly Had the Biggest Digital Game Launch of All Time

Cyberpunk 2077, despite all of its launch issues and refunded copies, reportedly had the biggest digital launch of all time based on digital revenue and digital units sold.

As reveled by SuperData’s worldwide digital games market report for December 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 sold over 10.2 million digital copies, with PC accounting for around 80% of those sales. It’s important to note that Sony removed Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store in the middle of December 2020 following the performance issues that are especially prevalent on base PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

SuperData notes that these estimates do include the digital copies that have been refunded but that its “data shows that refunds did not substantially affect the game’s aggregate sales.”

Cyberpunk 2077 helped digital game sales reach $12 billion in December, which is a 15% increase year-over-year and made December have the highest monthly total revenue ever. While console earnings year-over-year jumped 16%, PC saw a 40% increase when compared to 2019.

SuperData also reported that Fortnite earnings on PC and console were at their highest since August 2020 and player numbers were larger than at any point since August 2019.

Grand Theft Auto V’s Cayo Perico Heist’s release resulted in GTA V’s highest monthly digital earnings ever, and although Among Us’ player numbers fell from November’s “roughly half a billion users,” it was still “2.8 times as popular as the next-popular game, Roblox.”

Among Us also launched on the Nintendo Switch in December and is said to have sold 3.2 million copies, which made it the highest earning version of the game for that month.
