Top 5 Sequels That Are M.I.A.

Sequels are a dime a dozen today, yet there are many games out there, which have seemingly not received a deserved sequel. In some cases it is because the game is a self-contained experience and in some cases it is because the game is a commercial failure. This Top 5 focuses on those games that were critically well received but unfortunately didn't do so well commercially. Each of the Top 5 has had a whisper here and rumor there about a potential sequel, but thus far the sequels are still M.I.A. (Beyond Good & Evil 2, Bully 2, Eternal Darkness 2, Freedom Fighters II, GameCube, Jade Empire 2, PC, PS2, Xbox)

Great list, I agree 100%. Good games like this don't get sequels, yet frankly crap games like Driver, Dead to Rights and True Crime, none of which anybody was crazy about to begin with, do.

Exactly. It is a sad truth about the industry but I am still optimistic that at least some of those games will get sequels...eventually.

freedom fighters speech at the end is EPIC!
NovaXz  +   1844d ago
Almost all of those games have great endings and yes, the Freedom Fighters speech is indeed epic. I actually want to go back and play all of those games now.

GREAT LIST

Elder Scrolls V. After IV started this gen off so great. Where the hell is V? It boggles my mind.

Whatever, hopefully when it comes out it has PS Move support.

HEAVENLY SWORD!!
For the love of Mary, Sony! So NT don't want to do it, give it to one of your thousand 1st party devs and get me back my Nariko

Heavenly Sword was a great game, even if it did have a few nagging flaws. I think Team Ninja probably would go back to the series, of course it all depends on whether or not Sony holds the rights. If they do, then I don't think team Ninja will go back. They don't seem like they want to risk making single platform titles anymore.

I think it would be great to see a new Freedom Fighters. Jade Empire 2 would be great fun if it would happen. I so can't wait to play Beyond Good & Evil 2. After seeing the trailer. Then the leaked footage I have been super excited. But the game is taking forever to come out. So I hope it will not be that much longer.

KOTOR 3 and no, that's not what The Old Republic MMO is.

What does M.I.A stand for ?

A new Jade Empire would be fantastic.

Missing In Action.

Never did finish up Jade Empire. I should give that another try, but Eternal Darkness 2! Yes please :)

BULLY! that game was awesome, a sequel would be amazing but then again that is for RockStar to decide (hopefully after they make GTA V)
