The year started off with a bang thanks to Monster Hunter World, which was continued with Far Cry 5, and ended by and large with God of War. In-between these big releases we had some phenomenal indie games too. For the most part, though, it’s been pretty dry all summer. Thankfully that lull is over. Fall is finally here and with it a deluge of AAA titles from hardcore RPGs like Dragon Quest XI to thrilling high octane shooters like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. It’s going to be an amazing four months jam-packed with some of 2018’s biggest titles. This is the case every fall. If only I had a Time Turner like Hermione. Anyway if you need some help with what’s to come, I wrote up a handy little list of the fifteen games I’m sure are going to be hits along with early entries next year like Resident Evil 2’s remake.
But wait, what about further down the pipeline? Tristan, what can I drool over in the far future? Well, dear reader, I have your back there too because that’s what this list is all about. Just to clarify, if that title wasn’t descriptive enough for you. I’ll run down twenty games we know for sure are in development, but also have very little information on. These are games that may take years to actually come out. Then, as icing on the cake, I dug up some rumors too just for fun. Okay, enjoy! PC gaming, PC gaming, PC gaming
30. Currently In Development: Square Enix’s The Avengers
I know I already have a lot of Square Enix games in here, but they have a lot of announced titles in the pipeline. It’s not my fault. Anyway back in January 2017, they announced a partnership with Marvel for a few projects. The first of which was a game based on The Avengers. There was a CG teaser trailer showcasing the destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ, but that was it. Again, I expected it at this year’s E3, but was sadly wrong. We got The Quiet Man instead…PC gaming, PC gaming, PC gaming
29. Currently In Development: The Elder Scrolls VI
There was an even bigger game that Todd Howard teased at Bethesda’s E3 press conference. That would be the project after Starfield aka The Elder Scrolls VI. If my theory is right and Starfield is a 2020 game then we’ll be lucky to get this one by 2023. They take their sweet time with development, which is fine by me. As buggy as Bethesda’s RPGs are at launch, no one can deny their overall quality. At the very least they are extremely popular.
28. Rumored: Bloodborne 2
On the continued subject of E3, there was a game I was crossing my fingers to see: Bloodborne 2. Instead From Software unveiled Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which also looks amazing. Still, I wanted to see the return of the Hunters.
Of all the “Souls” type games, Bloodborne was my favorite. Seeing as how Sony owns that IP it stands to reason that they could make it themselves without the help of From Software. Look for it at the Tokyo Game Show in September.
