Watch Dogs may have sold a hacktastic amount of copies this year, but the game itself wasn’t exactly perfect. Watch Dogs had quite a few chinks in the armour that prevented an otherwise decent game from soaring to new heights. Money talks however, and you can bet that a sequel is on the way in that universe. A sequel that has some ‘radical’ ideas for fixing certain problems.
Destiny is huge and awesome and getting tons of hype at the moment. I'm downloading the Beta as I type, and I'm really amped to get into the game and see what all the fuss is about. However, Bungie knows that this is sort of like a first date, and they don't want to scare gamers away by being too pushy.
Even though it had a done in one story, Wolfenstein: The New Order still had plenty of room for a sequel. It’s also a sequel that gamers would most likely welcome, as there is more than enough room in the industry for a balls-to-the-wall old school shooter. And the team behind that game has some ideas for that potential game if they get the green light to go ahead.
There’s a ton of sequels that I’d love to see made. Metal Gear Rising 2, Street Fighter 5 and Project Gotham Racing 5 are a few such examples. But I’d dig to slap leather again and ride west into the sunset in another Red Dead Redemption. And according to one head cheese at Take Two, that sequel might still be coming. Pard’ner.
Another year, another Call of Duty. This time, Sledgehammer games gets to show off their hard work, with a game set in the future of 2054. It’s Advanced Warfare and a brand new franchise within Call of Duty to boot. Which means that we can expect a sequel to this adventure, once the dust has settled.
Some days you just want to break stuff, and despite what Limp Bizkit was preaching, you’re not going to be able to get away with some random violence. What does help vent those frustrations however, are fighting games. One of the finest such entries in that genre is easily Injustice: Gods Among Us. and it’s getting a sequel.
Some game studios find themselves producing a hit game, which evolves into a franchise and becomes their primary title to work on. For some, that’s a good thing as it allows them a safe buffer to make some cash back in a turbulent economy. For other studios, they want to avoid being a one-game pony. But inFamous developer Sucker Punch is fine with having such a reputation.
The Amazing Spider-Man was an average film back when it was released in 2012, with an equally average game. It had some bright spots, but it was pure cash-in material for the movie. Fast forward to 2014, and the cycle repeats. The new game however? It looks completely different, revamped and ready to do some web design in a completely original manner.
If there’s one thing that I enjoyed about South Park: The Stick of Truth, it’s that it was impossible to not have a grin on my face as I played through it. Thanks to some sick humour and my even blacker sense of it, I quite dug the game. And I’d kill for a sequel. An idea, which might not be far off at all.
Sequels! Get yer sequels! Fresh from the development studio! Includes extra crunch time! Get it on a stick! Good for what ails ya!
Who’s afraid of the big bad bat? Ever since the events of Arkham City the caped crusader has been left without a purple-suited maniac in his life, as the Joker finally succumbed to the effects of the game that kicked the entire franchise off in Arkham Asylum. A new game is on the way, and that’s no secret. So who will be the main antagonist? Well, Hush up and I’ll tell you…
If there’s one game that got me sold on console gaming, it was Gears of War. It was one of my very first games on the Xbox 360 and since then, I’ve played all of them. Gears of War 3 was the pinnacle of the series, with many a night ending in my character dying from pink shotgun wounds. And the next Gears game will need to recapture that spirit.
I’ve got a shelf of games, that have gems on it that will never, ever be traded. Games that were so good, that I’ll still be playing them a couple of years from now and loving them just as much. One such game on my shelf? Brutal Legend. And I want a sequel to it. So does its creator Tim Schafer apparently.
I’m not great at racing games. Oh hell, who am I kidding? I’ve seen orangutans behind the wheels of cars that were doing a better job than me until my inner jackass shouted “BANG CLYDE!” just so that I could watch the car wreck. But as far as racing games go, I loved me some Forza Horizon. And the rumour mill is pointing to a sequel on the way.
Ask Geoff which game he’s most looking forward to this year, and he’d pop up behind you dressed in leather and with whips in his hand, and whisper into your ear “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. As frightening as that image may be, he does have a point, because the sequel is looking superb so far.
