Lost And Found In 2013: 10 Missing In Action Games Due Out Next Year (We Hope)

Anthony John Agnello:

Don’t believe the haters—2012 was a fantastic year in video games. From indies like FTL: Faster Than Light to surprise underdogs like The Walking Dead and franchise resurrections like XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the past twelve months have been littered with high quality storytelling and play on literally every platform available. For all of the great games, though, there was quite a few that were missed. Not those games like Tomb Raider, Aliens: Colonial Marines, or BioShock Infinite that were pushed from 2012 release dates into 2013, but the lost and damned of gaming. The vaporware, the announced but never played, the missing in action games that perpetually sit on developer’s fiscal forecast documents and Amazon.com preorder pages, waiting forever for a firm release date that will never come.

A new year always brings new hope. Here are ten games previously announced for current consoles that we hope will re-emerge in 2013 as either the last fruits of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the first wave of next-gen games, or fruitful library expansions for the PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS. (3DS, Agent, Beyond Good & Evil 2, BioShock, Final Fantasy XV, Mega Man, Ni-Oh, PC, Project Zwei, PS Vita, PS3, Seaman, The Last Guardian, Xbox 360, Zone of the Enders 3)

Versus XIII is not coming out in 2013. It would clash with Lightning Returns. A early/summer 2014 release is more likely.
Makes sense. I'm still hoping though. Lightning returns is coming early next year so they could make versus their holiday release. What other big titles does square have coming out next year?

I don't believe is coming out early next year. In september they said it was only 25% complete... there a retailer which listed as a march release but thats just the usual placeholder BS. I think we're looking at a fall 2013 release and maybe even jaunuary 2014 for the west, as they did with XIII-2

I hope we get Dragon's Crown as well I know it was pushed back but sometimes you can never tell.

I doubt Bioshock Vita will happen. Vita is not doing to hot right now. It hasent even started development yet so probably not a 2013 release unless its a rushed mess like Black ops declassified.

Well for Bioshock Vita, the spokesguy said, it hasn't even been approved for development yet. All they said is that they'd love to try. That's all.

I really want The last Guardian and Beyond good and evil to come out already, it would be a shame if these projects are canceled.
