Shacknews Dump - January 14, 2022

Join us as we discuss the week's hottest news, including Hitman 3's Year 2 content and the latest on Kirby and the Forgotten Land.


We’ve arrived at the end of the week and it’s just about time to close up shop for a long holiday weekend, but there’s still been plenty of news this week and we’re going to recap the hottest stories on another episode of the Shacknews Dump!

On this January 14 edition of the Shacknews Dump, we dive into the recent decision by Lego to delay a planned Overwatch set due to Activision Blizzard’s poor leadership. Meanwhile, Kirby and the Forgotten Land is giving us more hope than ever for its launch with a fantastic recent reveal of gameplay and features including co-op and fishing. Nintendo isn’t the only one showing off cool things though. IO Interactive also unveiled its lofty plans for new Hitman 3 Year 2 content throughout this coming year.

Check it out as we recap these news stories and more on the Shacknews Dump, going live on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:45 p.m. PT / 4:45 p.m. ET. You can also watch the show just below.
