1. Uncharted 4
Naughty Dog hit it out of the ballpark with ‘The Last of Us’ released just last month. We have every reason to believe that they have also been working on their next title in the Uncharted series, considering that they have different teams for different projects. We hope to see the beloved Nathan Drake come back with even more action and maybe even something different in the continuing series.
2. Resident Evil 7
We don’t expect this game that consists of the undead to die out just yet. Capcom may try more risky ideas to pump up the long running franchise.The next Resident Evil may be unnumbered, and probably a spin off, when you take the Resident Evil 6 Story into consideration.
3. Grand Theft Auto 5
The game has already been confirmed for the PS3 and Xbox 360, but has no mention of the next-gen consoles. Rockstar has recently said that they’ve been hiring developers “to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform.” Many have suggested that they are talking about the PS4, which has been described as a PC Platform. Others think that the company is just setting up to release Red Dead or GTA 5 for the PC. We can definitely see GTA 5 being announced for the next-gen console very soon.
4. Gran Turismo 6
CEO of Polyphony Digital Kazunori Yamauchi has lately stated, “We have a PS4 version [of Gran Turimso 6] in mind.” Which obviously means that the next Gran Turismo is definitely being considered for the PS4. We can imagine that they will boost the recently announced Gran Turismo 6 PS3 game to next-gen standards.
5. Sleeping Dogs 2
The success of the United Front games Sleeping Dogs, assures they will continue on to have a series. The company has posted a job availability back in January for a ‘network/multiplayer programmer for a next gen console title’ and even for a Senior Project Manager. Expect to see news of Sleeping Dogs 2 in 2014.
6. Fallout 4
It has already been confirmed that there will be an Elder Scrolls Online, which made us cross out Elder Scrolls 6 as a candidate for Bethesda’s upcoming game. The company has announced that they are working on a “pre-production on our next major project”. in February 2012, Besthesda started hiring for “next generation console programmer”. The setting of the upcoming game has rumored from Reddit to be in Boston, MA. They have just started developing the new game so we expect it to be released late 2014, maybe even 2015.
The Director of Hitman: Absolution has said in a statement last year that Square Enix Montreal is currently developing the “new project“. IO Interactive announced just last month, that they had to lay-off half of their employees and cancel projects, but also that they will continue to work on the Hitman series. Expect to see the title because they seem very determined to make the game even better than before.
8. Deus Ex 4 / Human Revolution 2
Ion Storm announced the cyberpunk themed action role-playing game a couple of years ago through a trailer that leaked early. Turns out the game was held back and is now being redesigned for the PS4.
9. Doom 4
The game has trouble during development for the past five years but it seems that it will be available to the next-gen consoles very soon. Bethesda has confirmed that a ‘new version’ is currently being developed. Their previous Doom 3 did very well in 2004, but games preferences do change so hopefully id Software will greatly consider the next generation of gaming when creating their new title.
PlayStation Home is the virtual world that is included free to download with every one of our PS3 console. It has a lot of cool content that many people don’t know about such as hundreds of games, customizable characters, and users can even unlock exclusive contents for a their games. Millions have locked into the world, so it is obvious that Sony has to continue its legacy. We’re just trying to figure out if they’re going to transfer the same PS3 community on to the PS4, or will they make an entirely new world for the next-gen.
11. Tomb Raider 2
Lara Croft comes back new and improved with better graphics and even more action. We hope to see a little more back story, better selection of guns, and even more craftier challenges in the next Tomb Raider release.
12. Silent Hill
When you hear about scary video games, you know it’s gotta be Silent Hill. Last year Hideo Kojima disclosed that he was asked to make a Silent Hill game during Eurogamer Expo. He says, ”I think Silent Hill has a certain atmosphere. I think it has to continue, and I’d love to help it continue, and if I can help by supervising or lending the technology of the Fox Engine, then I’d love to participate in that respect.” If Kojima believes that it should continue then it should be available for the next-gen consoles hopefully soon.
13. Little Big Planet 3
It has not been confirmed to whose going to continue the popular series but rumors have been gravitating towards Sumo Digital CV who has recently made a PS3/Vita cross-play patch. Media Molecule was seen with no LBP demos at the PS4 reveal, but they will kept as an option. We can predict that the upcoming Little Big Planet title to complement the new features on the PS4 controller as well as the camera.
It has already been confirmed that the Batman: Arkham Origins is coming out soon but it seems that the Warners Bros has already started developing for the next in the series. Kevin Conroy, the voice actor of Batman made a statement at this years Dallas Comic Con saying, “Confusion in Dallas. I am in new Arkham game coming soon, not Arkham Origins coming this fall.” That statement should be enough to tell us that they have big plans for Batman.
