What’s Next for First-Person Shooters?

"The modern war shooter was one of the defining genres of the seventh generation (2005-2013) of video games. After the success of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, hardly a month passed without the release of at least one shooter starring a soldier battling terrorists, Russians, or terroristic Russians in today’s world. This saturation, as well as the incredibly derivative visual and gameplay mechanics the games employ, has led to a backlash among some gamers against the genre. This backlash closely mirrors the backlash against World War II shooters, such as Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and Call of Duty, during the transition from sixth generation to the seventh. What’s the connection between these backlashes, and what lies ahead for the venerable first person shooter genre? We have a few guesses." - Jake Petersen of Geekenstein.com (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Culture, PC, PS3, PS4, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

What's next? Same shit, different toilet.. Old stagnant series like COD are still getting the biggest sales, with the least effort from developers.

Need to scrap all this bro! murrica! hooorahh United Tankmen of America BS, and come up with some original concepts.

Titanfall, Battlefield 5, Sunset Overdrive and Halo 5 jump immediately to mind. Also, the redemption of Call of Duty (true next gen, 64+ players).

All these things would make me happy.

edit: crap, and Destiny. How could I forget?

64 player CoD does not sound good at all. It's not the kind of shooter that requires that many players.

Bigger stages, more players, sounds like a ball to me. I guess that's an opinion. But, when I think war, I think WAR! COD as it stands is like a paintball skirmish.

edit: actually, I've been part of way bigger paintball skirmishes. Speedball, more like it.

Also I don't think we will be seeing this anytime soon based on the latest comments by Activision's CEO.

On the PC side.......

We have great FPS to look forward to like:

Firefall = FPS tactical eSport MMO
Survarium = FPS-RPG MMO
Hawken = FPS Mech
Red Orchestra 2 New DLC = Tactical WWII FPS
Arma 3 DLC and Expansions = FPS Simulator
Dayz Stand Alone = FPS Survival Horror Simulator
many more.

Firefall is in Beta and the MP mode is fantastic and a eSport while the MMO mode is still being improved.

Survarium is made by the Old STALKER team and it looks and feels like STALKER burt with a better MP mode, I'm hoping to get into the upcoming Beta.

Hawken = I'm in the closed beta and the open beta is Dec 12, Hawken is a FAST, Tactical, FPS Mech game with one map having destruction with many more to come along side many non destructive maps.

Red Orchestra 2 DLC = more DLC to come in 2014 and RO2 is just flat out a brutal game of Tactics and realism

Arma III DLC = Arma III pretty much nothing is better than this REALISTIC WAR Simulator.

DayZ Stand Alone = our favorite FPS survival horror mod will have it's stand alone released in 2014 with lots of fixes and gameplay increases.
