This week China-based publisher Perfect World laid off most of Motiga, the developer of the hero shooter Gigantic, and shut down Runic Games, the studio behind the popular action-RPG Torchlight and the recently released puzzle-platformer Hob. Both game developers were based in Seattle.

What this week lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. Splatoon 2 launches at the end of the week, while PSVR hands will finally be able to get their hands on one of the best VR titles around. Gigantic comes out of beta after a long time in the wilderness, and Xbox fans can finally get their hands on the quirky What Remains of Edith Finch.
If that wasn't enough, Rift fans will also be able to get Lone Echo and its Ender's Game spin-off multiplayer game, Echo Arena. Like I said: This Week In Games is small, but certainly busy.
