Shacknews Dump - August 20, 2021

As the week comes to a close, let's dig through all of the news that's dropped with the Shacknews Dump.


Friday is upon us once again, which means it's time to look back and reflect on all of the news that's hit the gaming industry this week. That's right, we're back for another edition of the Shacknews Dump! Hosts Blake and TJ are chomping at the bit to dig into the news of the week.

On today’s August 20 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we’ll be covering a range of topics. However, there’s some breaking news that we need to address. Halo Infinite will not be launching with a Forge Mode or Campaign co-op support, 343 Industries has confirmed. Also, you may have heard that Soulja Boy is the new CEO of Atari. Well, Atari wants you to know that is simply incorrect. On top of those two fascinating stories, we’ve got some other neat topics lined up for the show.

Tune in as we chat about these stories and more when the Shacknews Dump goes live on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. PT. You can also watch using the video embed below.
