WB Games Montreal is hiring staff to work on two new games to take place in the DC universe.
A pop-up message on the studio's website reads, "We are a growing studio with two AAA projects in development focused on expanding the DC Comics universe in the interactive space."
The studio is seeking rendering, system, and gameplay programmers; character and technical artists; an audio designer, a senior animator, and a software developer.
WB Montreal previously developed Batman: Arkham Origins, and also made the Batgirl DLC for Arkham Knight.
It is unclear which areas of the DC universe WB Montreal will attack, though hints have been dropped in their previous work concerning Suicide Squad (receiving the big-screen treatment next year) and Justice League villain Starro.
AMD's much-vaunted new Crimson drivers are having an unexpected effect: that of damaging the cards they're meant to optimise.
The drivers — replacing the aging Catalyst software — reportedly set video card fans to a fixed 20 percent, regardless of GPU temperature.
As the cards heat up, the fans should increase in speed to compensate, but with the Crimson drivers, they have reportedly remained static at 20 percent.
Police were called to eSports event Dreamhack Winter over the weekend thanks to an incident involving CounterStrike host Richard Lewis and Dota 2 player Jonathan "Loda" Berg.
Berg claims that Lewis strangled him backstage at the event, while Lewis says he was provoked when Berg "pushed his forehead into [his] face."
The incident began with a tweet from Lewis, a professional journalist, implying he had slept with CS:GO player Hiko's mother.

Nintendo's component suppliers' estimates are more conservative than Nintendo's, with the company aiming for 20 million shipped units.
It looks incredible, but according to its developers, Grand Theft Auto V mod The Pinnacle Of V has much more going on than just a graphical polish.
Vehicles have been reworked, with supposedly more realistic handling, physics, and AI driving.
Relationships between the game's various groups of NPCs have been tweaked to enable more emergent encounters, like battles between gangs and police, and population numbers have been increased across the board — particularly at rush hour.
Sony has unlocked another one of the PS4's eight processor cores for use by developers.
Previously, two of the console's cores were reserved for running the PS4 operating system, which left only six available for developers to harness.
But the patch notes for a recent update of FMOD Studio's audio middleware noted that it had "added FMOD_THREAD_CORE6 to allow access to the newly unlocked 7th core," which was soon corroborated by sources at Sony.
