Top 5 Rumored Announcements for GDC 2012

From the feature top list:

"It’s that time of the year again as developers and publishers start gearing up for the industry’s biggest gaming event, E3. Before they finalize their grand plans to captivate audiences this summer with showcasing their latest and greatest upcoming games, the majority of publishers make a pit-stop at the Game Developer Conference (March 5-9) and the upcoming PAX East (April 6-8). Both are used as focal points to start seeding with the media and even announce a few key titles that won’t be overshadowed by the gargantuan announcements in June for E3. That being said, the rumor mill has already started churning."

No Steambox in the top 5? =\ I know it's an Xbox site but they cover other consoles as well so...

da_2pacalypse2542d ago

Steambox? Sir, I'm pretty sure we all want to hear about HL3 instead of a box lol

On a side note, if I hear anything about DA3 before next year, I know it's going to be another rushed piece of garbage. I don't want that game to release until 2014, if it's any sooner, I know it's been rushed just like DA2 was.

Because the 'Steambox,' isn't even real. It's a fabricated story that someone came up with after taking what Gabe, said in the interview out of context.

MsclMexican2542d ago

Right now... Im just laughing at the fact that almost every studio has had a secret project that they have been working on for the past couple of years.

Assassins Creed 3
Halo 4
The Last of Us
Bioshock Infinite
Sleeping Dogs

So far 2012 has been full of surprises.. I honestly don't think I can handle anymore surprises as the concentrated doses of said surprises might kill me from sheer joy.

If HL3 is announced... I might have a stroke

How is AC3,GTA5, Bioshock 3 and Halo 4 a surprise we all knew they where coming.

A surprise would be if they announced a new Ip, or a reboot of a really old one.

P.S: not saying anything bad about the games(they all look great) just saying that they were coming for sure.

andibandit2542d ago

If a new baldurs gate is announced, ill break my own legs so i can stay home.

this new teaser site makes me say this.

Beamdog, a studio co-founded by BioWare and Baldur's Gate veteran Trent Oster, is behind the site

Farsendor12542d ago (Edited 2542d ago )

how is bioshock,halo 4,gta v and ass creed 3 a surprise these are established franchise of course they will make a return. imo

imo the real surprises of this year.

either confirmed or rumored to come out this year.

1. tribes ascend
2.Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning i know its out and it was a surprise
4.dead state
7.dragon commander
8.tomb raider reboot
9.mech warrior online
10.natural selection 2

and of course guild wars 2 if it comes out this year.

and with even more rumors of releases this year is shaping up to be just as good as last year if not better. imo i think guild wars to is going to trump all the other games

those games are going to be good that you listed i just thought everyone knew we would be seeing all of those games at some point.

irepbtown2542d ago

Halo 4? after everything that happened with Bungie, I think it is a surprise.

GTA V, well the trailer looks so good.
The game was expected, the standard up in the sky, looks like Rockstar have hit the moon, at this rate even past it. Surprise comes through disbelief sometimes, you know "Is this really a GTA V?" etc.

Those two got me surprised...

Pl4sm42541d ago (Edited 2541d ago )

Well, Fable Heroes already showed up on Xbox Live Marketplace. Wouldn't be surprised at all to hear more about it now.

SPARDA_4262542d ago

Metal Gear Solid 5 and God of War IV are the two games im waiting for.

auen12542d ago

you're going to be waiting for a loooong time.

QuodEratDemonstrandm2542d ago

I'd like to see the gameplay for MGS5. Might be fun to see Solid snake with his new Octo-Camo Walker.

Or maybe it'll be Metal Gear Sunny?

"Otacon, I'm gonna be dead soon." -Solid Snake, MGS4.

WitWolfy2542d ago

Sorry to burst your Bubble, but MGS 5 is gonna be about BIG BOSS. Probably a sequel after Peace Walker about why he went all "Bad guy" according to "The Patriots" of course ;)

morganfell2542d ago (Edited 2542d ago )

Since the pic Kojima Productions released was of Big Boss, it's likely it doesn't involve Solid Snake unless it enters Metal Gear territory.


Like some I was hoping for Big Boss right before Solid or at least a Boss game with WWII and the Cobra unit but I will take anything I can get that isn't compromised for marketing.

QuodEratDemonstrandm2542d ago

@Wolfy & Morgan

A Big Boss title on the ps3.... I think I'd like that. Set during les enfants terribles. That would be a story I could get into. The final falling out between Big Boss and Zero.

UltimaEnder2542d ago

Would love to hear about the next Metal Gear...

AusRogo2542d ago

Why are people disagreeing!?

Lucreto2542d ago

I am not expecting much.

Each year we expect games getting announced and we usually get nothing.

Drekken2542d ago

I'm with lucreto. Rumors usually end up 100x better than the actual show.

Xof2542d ago

Well, for a "top 5" list of expected titles, there wasn't much punch in that particular list.

tee_bag2422542d ago

Tell me about it. That list is as boring as bat sh#t.

WitWolfy2542d ago

The AGENT and Last Guardian comes to mind...
