Video game subscriptions are all the rage. Or, maybe that's not quite right. It looks like video game subscriptions will be all the rage, in the not too distant future, if things carry on in the direction they're going right now. Right now, of course, people are getting their games in more or less the same ways they always have - buying them outright, or downloading them as initially free-to-play - but right now, too, the biggest tech companies around are toying with their own, subscription-based alternatives. Google has Stadia Pro, Amazon is rolling out Luna (alongside Prime Gaming, formerly Twitch Prime), Apple has Apple Arcade, and more internally to the industry itself there are plenty more, from EA Play and Ubisoft+ to PlayStation Now and, sitting atop the monthly payment pyramid above all, Xbox Game Pass.

Ubisoft has clarified a report that suggested it had renamed Rainbow Six Quarantine to Rainbow Six Parasite. Last week, Ubisoft told investors the game's name would likely change as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Then, overnight, artwork spotted by MP1st appeared to show the game with a new "Parasite" name and logo. But Ubisoft has now issued a statement saying this name merely reflects the game's internal test build - and that a new, final name would be revealed soon. "While we recently shared that we will be changing the name of Rainbow Six Quarantine, 'Parasite' is only a placeholder that our internal teams use," a Ubisoft spokesperson told Eurogamer. "Recently, we ran an internal test for the game and some of its details became public. We can confirm this is a glimpse of the upcoming game, and we will share more details, including the official name, soon.” A co-op PVE shooter in a similar style to Left 4 Dead, Ubisoft originally announced Quarantine back at E3 2019 … [Read more...] about No, Rainbow Six Quarantine hasn’t been renamed yet
