It was announced a year ago that David Leitch - director of Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, and The Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, will be directing the movie. It's not a videogame, though, but a new show about a videogame-a fake one, to be clear-and the people who make it.

Apple is gunning for Silicon Valley's title as the funniest nerdy comedy on TV with its upcoming show Mythic Quest.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Rob McElhenney gave gamers a preview of the TV show he's been working on for Apple TV+ at E3 today.

Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter account hacked
Amitabh Bachchan has been in the news since the past hour since the actor's Twitter account was hacked by a Turkish hacker. In fact, back in 2013 and 2014; the group defaced United Nation's domains twice with anti-Israeli messages.

Hence Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet, a comedy series about the developers behind the game of the same name. McElhenney plays Ian Grimm, a videogame studio director whose egomaniacal tendencies are on full display in the short bit of footage above (which begins at the 2:45 mark). As McElhenney said on stage, "like most creative directors I've met he's entirely dedicated to his game [.] and has an ego the size of a city bus".

A release date has not been announced for Mythic Quest, either. "Now I get to play Cole D. Walker" - an ex-Ghost who's gone rogue, recruiting other dark agents to his team of "wolves" to battle for control of the Skell Tech headquarters on the fictional Pacific island chain of Auroa. Ubisoft also revealed that an invite-only beta launch goes live on September 5; you can register for a chance to jump in early over at the Breakpoint sign-up page.
