Destiny 2 was probably going to happen this year.Now it probably isn’t. Probably.
There’s a certain charm to being aware of how stupid something may be. Which is maybe why people manage to put up with me. Take the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies for instance. My Grodd, was it wonderfully stupid. Michaelangelo looked like he was related to President Zuma, master Splinter was a combination of CGI nightmare fuel and the Shredder was a walking advert for Ginsu knives. Time for a sequel then.
Love it or hate it, but there’s no denying the massive impact that Civil War had on the Marvel comics universe back in 2006 and beyond. More than just a simple excuse to see your favourite heroes set forums ablaze when they went at each other, Civil War created a new status quo that rocked the Marvel Universe for years afterwards. Time for a sequel then.
Psychonauts 2 is sitting on a pile of donations that has raised $2 million of the $3.3 million that Double Fine needs to help partly fund the sequel. There’s still 35 days left to go, and I’d wager that Double Fine hits their goal within the next week or two. And that’s good for them! No complaints here. Because if Psychonauts 2 is a crowdfunding success, it could pave the way to getting another Double Fine property resurrected. The gnarliest, most metal game of all time: Brutal Legend.
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.
Developer Runic Games aren’t ready to head back into the world of Torchlight just yet. It seems that they’re a bit burnt out right now from the franchise.
With Bethesda very hard at work finishing Fallout 4, it’s obvious we won’t be hearing of a new Elder Scrolls soon. Skyrim’s sequel could be even further away than you think.
You thought the first Hatoful Boyfriend couldn’t get any weirder? Well hold onto your asses Fred, because the sequel is going to be even crazier.
There are almost countless different versions of Angry Birds, but the mobile phenomenon is yet to actually get a true, numbered sequel. That’s changing later this month.
