There’s a new scholarship in Ontario for students wanting to study esports, Prime mulls God of War series, Forspoken pushed to October, new games on Xbox Game Pass.

Government of Ontario announces esports scholarship program

The provincial government in Ontario has established a $1 million scholarship fund to be distributed over two years to postsecondary students in “esports and related programs”, which includes “game design, development, marketing, and innovation industry that may lead to a career in similar fields.”

The scholarships will be awarded this fall and will be available through Ontario’s colleges and universities.

God of War television series considered for pick up by Prime

Deadline reports that Amazon’s Prime Video is “in negotiations for a live-action TV series based on the hugely popular” video game series, God of War, which is developed by Sony’s Santa Monica Studio and exclusive to Playstation consoles.

Forspoken release pushed from May to October

A new adventure game from Square Enix that is a PS5 exclusive is getting a few extra months in development.

Forspoken, which counts Gary Whitta and Amy Hennig on its writing team, will be released on October 11 and not May 24 as originally planned.

In a Twitter post the development team said it would “focus all of our efforts on polishing the game”.

We did get a new gameplay trailer, though, so that’s something to keep our interest for a few more months.

New games added to Xbox Game Pass

Tunic, a new game published by Finji and developed by Halifax game designer, Andrew Shouldice, was released today and in addition to being available on Windows is also available through Xbox Game Pass.

About a “small fox on a big adventure,” Tunic is an adventure game with puzzles to be solved and enemies to be defeated.

Also new to Xbox Game Pass is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which I loved. Now anyone with a subscription can enjoy the adventure game from Eidos-Montreal.
