GI Show – Black Ops 4, New BioShock, GI Internships

by Ben Hanson on Apr 19, 2018 at 06:00 PM

Welcome back to The Game Informer Show! We're trying something a bit different on this week's podcast because there's a lot of interesting gaming news stories to break down. Ben Hanson is joined by Jeff Cork, Andrew Reiner, and Imran Khan to talk about Yakuza 6's release and what it's like to hunt Ewoks in Battlefront II before we break out a high-tech random-news generator to go through the rest. We cover the huge news of Call of Duty potentially removing the single-player component of Black Ops 4, PlayStation 5 rumors, and what we'd want from a rumored new BioShock game in development. After some great community emails, we're joined by Game Informer's outgoing interns Robbie Key, Joey Thurmond, and Jon Bowman to talk about their time in the office.
