13 Games That Will Be Revealed In 2013

Richard Bailey of TheKoalition.com writes:
As the 2012 gaming season draws to a close, both consumers and analysts alike have already begun salivating over what possibilities lie ahead in 2013. While new consoles are poised to usher in the next generation of gaming experiences, the current cycle of platforms are also expected to go out strong with a wide variety of blockbuster titles. Both of these dynamics present an interesting problem in the sense that there are still plenty of titles being developed that we don’t know anything about yet. In this article, I will give my own personal thoughts on 13 games that I feel will be revealed at some point and time in 2013. (Alan Wake 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, Dead Rising 3, Halo 5: Guardians, inFamous: Second Son, Killzone 4, Next-Gen, PS Vita, PS3, Saints Row 4, Tag Invalid, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I don't know. I do love the Helghast more than the ISA. But at the same time, there's something about shooting the Helghasts that make the KZ games so much more fun to play. Shooting at the ISA might feel bland because well, they would make un-intersting looking enemies.
NewVegasTroop  +   1052d ago
helghan civil war maybe?
pixelsword  +   1051d ago
The Helghast are more interesting because since Killzone 2 they've taken the emphasis off of the ISA and put it square on the Helghast.

But what if the ISA soldiers start have evolved as the Helghast soldiers did due to the climate on planet Helghan and in Killzone 4, there are 3 factions:

1) The Helghast
2) The ISA - due to harsh conditions and prolongued stay on Helghan, they have to wear special suits and or masks.
3) Rogue ISA soldiers who have neither ISA nor Helghast. Mutilated and mutated by war and the climate, they have formed their own clan.

The geek inside me is salivating at the thought of a 3 way all out war.
knowyourstuff  +   1051d ago
I would love playing as Hakha again from Killzone 1, you're a half Helghast half human spy infiltrating Helghast ranks, using Helghast weapons and machinery, would be totally sick to go back and forth between an ISA and an inside guy and seeing how each other's actions correlate, making things easier for the other person if you complete objectives, and not failing the mission if you fail an objective, it just makes things harder for the other campaign, see I'm full of ideas lol.
Reverent  +   1051d ago
Don't forget that Jordan Stahl has his very own private army of Helgast soldiers that are bound only to him. His army could very well make another faction against both the ISA and the traditional Helgast army.

Halo 5? Really doubt there will be a reveal this year, I'm guessing next year at the earliest. We might see a spin-off game or Halo 2 anniversary though.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1051d ago
Does it not bother anyone that this article lists nothing but Sequels? Number 4, number 5, number three. Even Smash Bros is another sequel.
Rainstorm81  +   1051d ago
I agree but it's hard to predict new IPs and far too easy to predict sequels, which pretty much makes lists like these useless
TronEOL  +   1051d ago
How would you predict a new IP? Of course the only realistic predictions we could make would be based on successful franchises.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1051d ago
How can you predict a new IP? I don't know, "jouranlists" and people like Pacter seem to do it all the time. So why does this moment change any?
Rumplebumpkin  +   1051d ago
I'd love to see this.
GG could just make every ISA Soldier into Rico type characters. I'd have no problem killing hordes of them if they did that.
showtimefolks  +   1051d ago
killzone 4
Uncharted 4

at launch for ps4 would be killer for sony.

also what are sucker punch working on?
what about a proper ratchet game from insomniac?

saints row 4 but which publisher?(sony my wish but EA or activision will buy the IP or THQ)

alan wake 2 will not be a xbox360 exclusive is what my prediction is.(because MS doesn't own the IP and Alan wake on PC sold so well so it doesn't make sense to limit your sales to one)

halo 5 in 2013 isn't happening, 2014 for sure

crackdown 3? i hope MS pays proper attention to crackdown its just an under rated game that deserves better developer and better sales

how about Zelda on wii-u or a zelda HD collection on wii-u?

last guardian at launch with ps4
half-life 3 will be confirmed at E3
left for dead 3?

so many games could be announced on top of what we already know in q1-q2 of 2013 so it could be one of the biggest years in gaming history
Tikicobra  +   1051d ago
I think the thing with first-person shooters is, when you have really cool enemies you want to play as them, but at the same time, the people you're shooting are more important than who you're playing as. Interesting enemies drastically improve the gameplay.
Reverent  +   1051d ago
Exactly. There was a reason Colonel Radec was chosen to be Killzone's rep for PlayStation All Stars.
specialguest  +   1051d ago
I really hope GG create a more compelling storyline for KZ4. The franchise excels in all areas except the story. I was a day1 buyer of KZ2&3 and love the games, but the story and characters were uninspired/boring.
Reverent  +   1051d ago
The thing is, the KZ franchise does actually have a really good story. It's just that the story hasn't really been well executed yet, which you can hardly blame them considering how difficult it must be to construct a good story through the eyes of a single person in a first-person shooting game. I trust that GG well give us something amazing with KZ4.
remanutd55  +   1052d ago
Motorstorm World Tour : most brutal, adrenaline pumping Motorstorm to date make it happen Evolution Studios!!!! and i hope Killzone 4 has 2 players co op online and we play as Isa and Helghast.
DA_SHREDDER  +   1052d ago
Motorstorm 5 and Killzone 4 launch titles will definitely make me buy a ps4 day one.
DOMination-  +   1051d ago
MS is terrible. Evolution should do something new. I think they will do the next wipeout anyway now SEE Liverpool merged.
Bathyj  +   1051d ago
Disagree completely that MS is terrible. The best offroad racer going, but maybe they should reboot Rollcage with the Motorstorm brutality.
#2.2.1 (Edited 1051d ago ) | Agree(4) | Disagree(2) | Report
DOMination-  +   1051d ago
Personally, I just don't like arcade racers with no depth to it like Motorstorm. I can appreciate the simplicity in just picking a race then race it but I need something a bit more than that.

Now that I'm not on my phone, let me explain about Wipeout. I hope they do a game like Fusion on the PS2. It didn't have the most memorable tracks but I loved the rpg elements where you levelled up and could upgrade your vehicles. WipeoutHD took a step backwards in that regard.

Anyway, I truly can't believe that NOBODY agrees with me - they would rather have another Motorstorm than something else? This is the same people on hate on Forza Horizon for being 'another Forza and not a new IP' when the reality is, it's a different experience. entirely. But you're all happy for another Uncharted, Killzone, GT and Motorstorm to be churned out?
chadboban  +   1052d ago
Uncharted 4... Hmmmm, I have a feeling Nate is gonna break up with Elena between the storylines of Uncharted 3 and Uncharted 4 only to wind back up with her in the end of Uncharted 4. I have no clue why my mind would think this but it's just a feeling I can't seem to shake off.

Also just bought the Killzone Trilogy and I'm enjoying it so far, so I can't wait to see what GG brings for Killzone 4.

A Smash Bros Wii U reveal would also make my year complete.

Break up with Elena? That would suck, because...


...they're married.

bratman  +   1051d ago
what they could do is the bad guy kidnap her, and have nate and sully rescue her... whatever happens in uncharted 4, no kids I beg of you Naughty Dog.
deafdani  +   1050d ago
Why no kids? Naughty Dog has already proven they can make pretty kick-ass kids (see: kid Nate in Uncharted 3)!

bratman  +   1050d ago
the exception to the rule, but thats because that was nathan drake himself :P
wenaldy  +   1052d ago
That capture trooper pic is so badass :)
r21  +   1052d ago
Indeed, would love to have it as a vita background :D
1Victor  +   1051d ago
@r21 just go to the site with the article on your vita hold on to the picture and it'll give you the option to save/download from there you can add it as a background on your vita(you can do this with almost any picture you find online ) .on topic now everyone knows its easier to predict sequels than new IP even tho we know they're in the making as we write .

Kill-Zone 4, make it happen, please.
Conzul  +   1051d ago
That; inFamous 3; Uncharted 4; Gran Turismo 6, and I could die happy.
sway_z  +   1052d ago
Some heavy hitters there...but it all seems so samey!

I really want to experience completely new franchises next gen, or at the very least a revisit of older franchises lost to the last gen or cancelled.

8 Days
B.C. (Lionheads Prehistoric Canx Xbox game)
Vice City Remake
Syphon Filter 4
Bully 2

...to this day I dream of a FF7 remake and MGS1

...keep dreaming :(

Eight Days and The Getaway bring those games back.
TooTall19  +   1051d ago
I think The Getaway is back in the works. At least that's what a British PS mag hinted at.

Killzone 4
Infamous vita

I like to see a

- Gta Vita
- God of war Vita
- Ni no kuni on vita :D

Killzone 4 hell yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! One of the best sp campaigns i play are the KZ ones idk i just love them from the graphics, to the explosions, to the whole all on war feel!!!!!! no one does it better!!!!
PAYNEinc85  +   1051d ago
Uncharted 4 and Killzone 4 will happen. Just not in 2014.
PAYNEinc85  +   1051d ago
I mean 2013
Shuyin  +   1051d ago
Halo 5?

Halo 4 was released in the holiday season of 2k12 and the the author thinks games of those scale are developed in 1 year. XDDDDD.
What a complete jerk. My guess for Halo 5 is holiday season 2014 or 2015
rbailey  +   1051d ago
Of course Halo 5 isn't coming out this year which is why I said in the actual article that it won't be out until the fall of 2014. That still won't stop them from putting a teaser trailer out cause they did the exact same thing with Halo 4 back in 2011.
Shuyin  +   1051d ago
I just hope we see games like Fallout 4, TimeSplitters 4 METAL GEAR SOLID: GROUND ZEROES (including a new METAL GEAR ONLINE,GT6 and more.
dafegamer  +   1051d ago
Gravity Rush 2 announced for summer 2014
Shuyin   1051d ago | Off topic | show
-Gespenst-  +   1051d ago
Hmmmm, with the exception of the next Smash bros I honestly don't care about any of those games.

I only care about the revealing of / release date announcing of Versus XIII, Half Life 3, Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain / 5 or Ground Zeroes, Ni No Kuni, Kingdom Hearts 3, Just Cause 3, Lightning Returns (wee bit apprehensive about that one) and The Last Guardian.

Gran Turismo 6 no?
rbailey  +   1051d ago
Thats a good point that I didn't think of. I'm pretty sure Gran Turismo 6 is in the works now as well.
KwietStorm  +   1051d ago
As long as Guerilla wakes up and goes back to the Killzone 2 formula, I'm all in.
inStereo  +   1051d ago
Wow - just add 1 to all the popular franchises, and you've got an article!
lfclee  +   1051d ago
Yeah looking forward to a great year this year in gaming!
silkrevolver  +   1051d ago
Kind of skimp on Nintendo games.

There will be a new Zelda announced (Wii U, or 3DS) I can almost guarantee that.
Probably a 3D Mario.
Something by Retro, possibly Metroid.
rbailey  +   1051d ago
Those are some good picks. I'm surprised I forgot about Metroid as well. Zelda def getting talked about at E3.
ChippyDee  +   1051d ago
W...wh.... what about Mirror's Edge 2?
rbailey  +   1051d ago
I actually thought of that game as well but by then it was too late. I'll have to do a followup at some point.
greatcrusader44  +   1051d ago
I need fallout 4 announced and some sort of good Star Wars game announced. Star Wars 1313 looks interesting but there was a sh*tload of amazing Star Wars games last Gen and the past 7yrs have been practically barren. (Yeah I know Old Republic but don't have a good PC and its 300yrs. After KotOR1&2, I want a real KotOR3 that retcons the Revan book that killed of the Exile like she was nothing)

Star Wars 1313 looks badass... and yeah I believe a Fallout 4 announcement is forthcoming
WeskerChildReborned  +   1051d ago
The list isn't bad, i like it if most of these come true, especially for Infamous Vita.
tubers  +   1051d ago
Is there a significant difference between "will" and "might"?

A significant chunk of the article features fall to "might" (release in 2013).

Just saying.
#28 (Edited 1051d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
deletingthis34675334  +   1051d ago
Every single game on this list are sequels/successors.
greatcrusader44  +   1051d ago
Its hard to guess a reveal of a new IP, cuz you would have no idea about said IP even existing. Sequels are the only you can predict will be announced.
TheLastGuardian  +   1051d ago
LittleBigPlanet 3
Ready at Dawn's Vita game
GTA Vita
Read Dead 3
Resistance 4
Persona 5
