Sony are set to make a number of huge announcements during their inaugural State of Play livestream, but could Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 and Modern Warfare 2 Remastered get an airing too?

The first State of Play broadcast is set to air on Monday, March 25 at 2PM PST/5PM EST/9PM GMT/2AM AEDT – with fans expecting some big news from Sony regarding new titles. 

Sony hinted at big news in their announcement for the State of Play streams, as they stated that upcoming PS4 and PS VR software, including new trailers, new game announcements and new gameplay footage will all be shown – leading to increased speculation about what lies ahead on March 25.

SonyThe State of Play event gets underway on March 25 with fans expecting big news.

Ryan Baez, who focuses on PlayStation news for the Jack of All Controllers website, dropped his list of predictions for what fans may get to see during the initial Sony State of Play livestream.

In his small list, Baez predicted that a teaser for Modern Warfare 4 will be shown and that the official announcement for Modern Warfare 2 Remastered will be made – alongside some other PlayStation exclusive titles being shown. 

However, they are only his predictions and not any sort of inside information or leak.

While fans can probably expect to see a number of highly-anticipated PlayStation exclusives on show, franchises like Call of Duty – which Sony holds the marketing rights to – could easily get some love too.

It remains to be seen just what Sony has up their sleeves for the first State of Play livestream, considering rivals Microsoft and Nintendo have regularly made huge announcements on similar broadcasts of their own.  

However, if Baez gets his predictions correct, Call of Duty fans are sure to celebrate having the chance to once again play games of Demolition on Terminal.

Black Ops Cold War devs respond to console-bricking Xbox Series X issues

Despite the Xbox Series X console just launching, Black Ops Cold War players have reportedly encountered a number of game-breaking bugs already, some that have even supposedly ‘bricked’ the hardware completely.

The new generation of gaming consoles have certainly been hard to come by. However, certain players that were able to get their hands on the Xbox Series X at launch haven’t all been feeling lucky.

Black Ops Cold War launched on the new system, alongside five other platforms. With plenty of unique hardware to account for, it’s no surprise that the release has been accompanied by some critical bugs. While some pull players from the game momentarily, others appear to be far more damaging.

If you’re playing on the Xbox Series X and notice a few crashes, it might be time to put the controller down for a little while.

Gamers that have tried to play through certain issues have reported their brand new Xbox Series X consoles outright breaking and refusing to turn back on.

Word of Caution Xbox Series X from blackopscoldwar

“My Cold War had been crashing my Series X a bunch over the weekend,” Reddit user ‘Junesfoshiz’ said. While it wasn’t a major deal at first, things soon became much worse. “I’d just reboot and move on,” they explained. “Well, when it happened this morning, it was for good. Xbox will not boot back up.”

With their console no longer functioning, they advised others with the same crashing issues to “play something else until there’s a patch.”

Treyarch already investigating Xbox issues

Treyarch is well aware of these devastating issues already. In fact, it’s the top problem on the official Trello board, with developers investigating it at this very moment. “We’re investigating all crashes and across the game,” Treyarch community manager Josh ‘FoxhoundFPS’ Torres added on Reddit.

“My immediate recommendations are to make sure that you’re using the correct version for your platform,” the community manager wrote.

Similar to those playing on the PS5, you can still access the PS4 version by mistake. This can seemingly lead to all sorts of unique problems. Double-check that you’re running the proper version of the game if your Xbox Series X has been crashing while playing Cold War.

Last but not least, “players have also shared that disabling Ray Tracing on XSX has helped.” While you won’t be using the flashy new hardware to its full potential with Ray Tracing disabled, it should prevent some devastating crashes.

An incoming patch should help mitigate a good number of these problems on the Xbox hardware, including those that brick the Series X console. However, there’s currently no ETA on when this patch will arrive.
