What Games will Microsoft & Sony Preview at their Next-Gen Announcements?

Every time new consoles are on the horizon it is a constant discussion on what games will be in the launch window. One thing that seems to always happen is console makers have a habit of getting people excited by showing off incredible new games that are never in the launch window and just great presentations. In this article we are discussing which 5 games we expect will be shown off for both PlayStation 4 & Xbox 720 at their announcements that will not see a launch window release.

More after the jump!

I would love to see Alan Wake 2 and Shadow Complex 2

AngelicIceDiamond2048d ago

I agree with the majority of that list.

Halo 5: No. Halo 4 was the benchmark title for Xbox 360. I think Halo 4 will last at least until next year. And if MS knows better, they give that franchise a rest for the time being.

Alan Wake 2: Yes. Alan Wake came out in 2010 which I'm sure production for MS exclusives including Alan Wake 2 started around that time after AW 1. We all feared that MS would CAN that Ip because it didn't hit major sales right away. It eventually sold a million. I can see it hitting 720 at launch.

Forza 5: Maybe. Forza 4 came out in 2011 and Horizon came out last year. I think this franchise along with Halo needs to take a back seat for a little while. Though it is rumored Forza 5 is in production and could make its way out with the 720. Its 50 50.

Shadow Complex 2: Maybe. Its guaranteed Epic is making something next gen related but I'm not sure if its gonna be SC2 despite it being critically acclaimed XBL title. Knowing Epic they'll probably work on a brand new Ip for MS.

Call Of Duty title: Yes. The first thing Activision would wanna do is release another Call Of Duty. Whats a console with out its COD right? They wanna be the first to grace the next gen consoles with BIG sales. Despite it being stale on current gen consoles with re-hash after re-hash after rehash. Personal bias aside expect a Cod at launch.

A few exclusive Ips: Yes. Its already rumored MS already has big plans to launch new Ip exclusives. 2 rumored ones. A new Ip that rivals Halo and gears (Not playing like those but in quality) and a new Ip that consist of "movie like gameplay or moments. Yes expsct MS to release brand new titles. Also "Ryse" could get released at launch also.

A reboot of an original Xbox Title: No. MS is probably more focused on their current big franchises and brand new ones come next gen a re-boot of an original Xbox is not likely part of MS plans. Who knows they could surprise us but imo I don't think its very likely.

Condemned Sequel: No. Condemned was good and it resonated well with people but I don't think its popular enough for a sequel. I'm sure the studio and MS would like to move on condemned and create something brand new. We haven't seen a condemned for a while so I believe that game is over.

Possible Bioware exclusive game: Maybe. Bioware did make a (timed) exclusive with ME and turned out to be one of Bioware's greatest game. Now owned by EA I can see a brand new Bioware game hitting the 720. Though it will be timed and not a true exclusive to MS I can still see Bioware creating magic again.

i agree with you but before you discount my prediction about some original xbox titles making a comeback in the form of reboot, or remake, or sequel, look at this list and one of these titles might make it back from the dead.
Side note, Microsoft is having a developer make a panzer dragoon game for kinect, whether it come out on xbox720 or xbox360 only time will tell. so i do think more titles have a chance.

possibly halo 5, forza 4 or horizon sequel, destiny which is exclusive to the xbox brand for one year and maybe a dance central sequel to show off the power of the new kinect

some titles that would make me very happy, doubt they will be shown there, but you never know...

fallout 4
battlefield 4

At this point in the game I believe Sony will make Final Fantasy Versus 13 a launch title for the PS4. It only makes sense. The game is highly anticipated and to release it as a launch will drive the sales of the console almost immedately. Then of course we will have some uncharted and maybe a new killzone.
