GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
As part of Epic Games’ Spring Showcase, the company announced that Axiom Verge 2 will be coming to PC via the Epic Games Store. The announcement was accompanied by a trailer showing off some new footage for the upcoming game.
Axiom Verge 2 had previously only been confirmed for release on Switch, so this is the first word that it will be on PC as well. It was announced as an EGS exclusive, and saved as a “one more surprise” announcement near the end of the presentation. It was still listed as a 2021 release.
We first saw Axiom Verge 2 at a 2019 Nintendo Indie World Showcase. Like the first game, it’s a retro side-scroller inspired by classic games, particularly Metroid. The first Axiom Verge was developed by lone game developer Tom Happ.
