Last year was a great year for gaming, and this year seems to be closely following that trend. With the holiday season out of the way, publishers are ramping up production to meet deadlines for the upcoming seasons. Gaming is more popular than it has ever been, with record profits reported across the industry: this means more high-quality games for everyone to enjoy.
Here are some titles that we know are in development and hope to be playable soon.
1.- Fallout 5
Bethesda is known for their timeless games that are enjoyed by fans many years after original release. Communities for their games are still thriving more than a decade later; Fallout 3 Stealth Boy cheats is a common search query, according to Google.
Consumers just recently got to experience Fallout 4 in virtual reality for the first time, and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The immersive worlds found in the Fallout and Elder Scrolls series is a perfect fit for VR. Some, though, have had their fun with the series and are looking to the future for the next adventure.
2.- Red Dead Redemption II
The much anticipated and long-awaited sequel to the stellar Red Dead Redemption II (RDR2) will finally grace store shelves this year, according to Rockstar Games. RDR2 is slated for release on October 26th, but anyone who knows Rockstar knows to expect that date to be pushed back.
Much to the chagrin of hyped up gamers, setbacks are common with the Red Dead and Grand Theft Auto series. Past experience has shown, however, that the wait is always well worth it. Get your cowboy hats ready for this October, but don’t be too blue if you have to wait a while longer.
3.- Crackdown 3
For a lot of people, their first experience with the Crackdown series was just a way to play the Halo 3 beta before the game officially released. After the Halo beta ended, though, many took the leap and put that game bundled with their beta in the disc tray.
Anyone who did was fortunate enough to play one of the Xbox 360’s greatest titles, but that was years ago, and gamers need something new to scratch that itch. Crackdown 3 is being developed to fully utilize Microsoft’s latest Xbox One X system, offering greater detail and 4K resolution over the standard Xbox One. Open world mayhem is promised, and fans of the old games can’t wait.
The popularity of Bungie’s Destiny series hasn’t gone unnoticed among the other big studios and publishers, and Anthem is the result of that. Bioware is behind the wheel on this game, giving it their signature flair of choice-based interactions paired with the action and shooting aspects of Destiny. While little is known right now about Anthem, large and scary monsters are sure to be a major conflict driver.
Keep your eyes open for these and a lot of other amazing games coming out in the months ahead. It may be hard to contain the hype, but just remember that release dates are never concrete and a good game released late is better than an okay game released on time. You’ll have plenty to play to get you through until the title you’re looking forward to drops.
