[TL;DR] November 2nd to 7th 2015

Our video game news rundown, TL;DR for the week of November 2nd. We curate the news so you don't have to. We opted for a Sunday release date this week so that we could cover the news from Blizzcon as well. Next week we'll be back to our regular Friday release.

Activision Blizzard Buys King for a Cool 5.9 Billion Dollars

No need to worry about your beloved IP's like Call of Duty or World of Warcraft though just yet.

The Witcher is Coming to the Big Screen Again in 2017
