The news doesn't stop coming in this completely necessary Big Week in Gaming for Sunday 15 May 2022.

Join integot, Mike and Swinny as they chat about some massive headlines, including - Bethesda delaying Starfield (and Redfall too, I guess), EA Sports and FIFA going through a messy public breakup, OG Duke Nukem Forever getting leaked and upsetting its creators, and a Ubisoft release window bonanza featuring the embattled Skull & Bones... and a Journey to the West-themed Rabbids game? Huh... didn't know that was a thing.

So hail to the king baby - it's time to kick ass and chew on these highlights:

▸ Starfield gets pushed to 2023.

▸ EA Sports drop the FIFA license after 30 years.

▸ And 3D Realm's original 2001 Duke Nukem Forever prototype gets leaked.
