The latest episode of The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast is available to download now, in which Chris, Charlotte, James and Haydn gather to discuss the biggest news of the past few days.
Following Chris' article, we also debate Electronic Arts' strategy in releasing Apex Legends, the new free-to-play battle royale game in the Titanfall universe, with little to no pre-launch fanfare, and the various factors that might deter a publisher from running a months-long promotional campaign ahead of such a release.
Microsoft's plans to bring Xbox Live support to Nintendo Switch and mobile are in tune with predictions we have previously made about the strengthening relationship between the two platform holders.
And finally, we ponder the latest in the heated discussion around Epic Games Store and its timed exclusivity deal for Metro Exodus.
