Once the dust had settled, developer Warner Bros Montreal had done a bang-up job on the Batman prequel. With Rocksteady now departing the Arkham waters for non-Batman related projects, the Batman game universe will most likely be relying on Warner Bros. Montreal to fill the Dark Knight gap. And it sounds like they’re getting ready for something big.
Rise of The Tomb Raider properly sets up Lara Croft in her signature role of an action archaelogist. But that sequel almost had a different name entirely and was for a good while known as Tomb Raider: Ascension.
I’ve actually got soft spot for the Sherlock Holmes games. They’re pretty much the only game in town when it comes to sleuthing as the master analyst, and they’ve been competent experiments in solving problems with your brain instead of bullets. Clearly, the previous Sherlock Holmes game from Frogware sold enough copies, as a new sequel is on the way.
Old school to the max, Pillars of Eternity was a classic throwback to the Dungeons and Dragons RPG action of yesteryear that defined games such as Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale. The game has been a big success, so of course a sequel is being considered. One that’ll pit players against the rising tide of darkness in a stranger land.
