2017 is almost over, and while there remain many great unplayed games from this year for most of us, 2018 is nearly upon us.

What are your most anticipated titles that are likely to release next year? fun one, which do you think will be the biggest let down?

Ace Combat 7, Dragon Quest 11, Kingdom Come Deliverance, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Spiderman, Project Octopath Traveler, and Vampyr are all up there for me. also trails of cold steel 3 along with 1 and 2 hitting ps4. and im sure im forgetting some as I quickly bang this out.
of these, Vampyr I think has the most potential to let me down, maybe. - KCD ended up being the one that's let me down the most so far as of july, its just not good on consoles because they didnt put enough time into adjusting the systems to a controller, but im gonna try again on PC later. but vampyr was janky too, great concepts though as an IP it has potential, feels like an old game

overall I think the biggest disappointment for me will be sea of thieves, that has been high up there for me since its announcement but the more that comes out about it the more its not what I hoped for in nearly any way. I guess i'll just keep playing sid meiers pirates, maybe look into some mods for it to satisfy my needs for good fun pirating adventures.


predictions.....just throw some fun crap out and we'll see if any of it sticks.
-pokemon switch is huge- it will be next year lol, so this will push to next years topic
-smash switch announced - got it, but not exactly a stretch to expect it
-kingdom hearts 3 actually releases - missed it THAT much...maybe
-FF7 remake dated for 2019, lots of new info and footage at E3 and throughout the year - with the project scrapping and starting over we might see it for the 25th anniversary in 2022 lol
-Bethesda finally reveals Starfield, but does not reveal ES6. - half right
-Cyberpunk 2077 gets some new info revealed but still no real trailer, indicating that the game is 2020 at best, and cdpr's last game on current gen consoles before shifting to what comes next - fairly accurate, still no gameplay trailer to the public, behind closed doors demo was pre-alpha, looks like 2020 at best is likely though
-Red dead redemption 2 slips again, but only a little. got it..for now
-far cry 5 ends up being surprisingly good, like really good - eh, its very ok, but not what I expected
-mainline fire emblem for switch revealed - got it, yay!!!
-Ubisoft and Ancel announce that Wild just wasn't working and focus is being moved to BG&E2 (I don't want that to happen, but no news about this game at all has me worried)not exactly announced, but no news on wild still feels bad
-Dragon Age 4 revealed but is a ways off - seems accurate, nothing at E3 and barely any info otherwise, other than the team working on the game is small until anthem finishes
-the backlash from battlefront 2 causes problems for Anthem, EA blames bioware seems to be a thing, much content I see for anthem seems to indicate heavy skepticism for anthem
-switch virtual console is revealed, and our Wii U VC purchases carry (hey I can dream lol) - once again Nintendo shows me why I didn't buy a Nintendo console for over 15 years
-more remasters (I know this one is a stretch) ya, but I mean ..that's gonna be forever. im betting ps5 and next gen is full of them too
-ports of games from the last year or two to the switch, LOTS of them. indies and AAA's alike. (Furi was announced today) also not a stretch, im sure it will continue
-no new consoles revealed - accurate, and I don't think we see them next year either
-will see Nintendo begin to have all its main teams focus on switch and 3ds continues to dwindle. (this may already be the case?) - somewhat? 3ds games, at least major ones, seem to be slowing, but support for the system til 2020 was announced

Is that Kojima game with the Walking Dead guy going anywhere? If not, I guess Animal Crossing Switch would be cool, but we'll probably get Animal Crossing: Fashion Party or something instead.

actually I just saw that death stranding was a lot further along than has been announced, and that has even entered the playable build stage and we would see it sooner than we thought, that would be a good prediction, a big reveal sometime soon... apparently the upcoming game awards is supposed to have no less than 12 new things unseen, maybe one of them is death stranding gameplay.

Pretty much everything you've listed, Tony lol. Throw in Ni no Kuni 2, Monster Hunter World, God of War, Detroit: Become Human, A Way Out, the Pokemon RPG and other things I'm sure I'm forgetting. Should be another amazing year!

As far as predictions go, I think Anthem gets pushed out of 2018. I also think we'll see what Retro Studios (new IP) and From Software (Bloodborne 2) are working on. I also think we'll see footage from Cyberpunk 2077 and all cry tears of joy!

Had no idea it was that far along. It's a Kojima game so I was expecting it to be a PlayStation 5 game for sure. I'm looking forward to seeing how it actually plays.

lol ya I was gonna throw NNK2 and DBH on there along with some others but wanted to keep it to a few of the very highest. Anthem getting pushed to 19 is very possible, and good predictions on the others as well.

and ya I didn't either, but The Know (rooster teeth) had that update on death stranding a couple days ago i'll have to see if I can find it again.

the holy prophets recently put out a hiring announcement for some artists with an emphasis on vehicle design for CP2077, it could still be a long long way off..maybe even the last great big game for the current gen one day? I guess we will see

Most Anticipated

Not a ton, really. I guess I'm interested in Pokemon for Switch, even though I've only played Red/Blue and Silver/Gold. I'd still like to catch up on the series, but I keep getting further and further behind. I think I would be the most interested if they finally go full 3D (for a full Pokemon game). Aside from that, the Kirby game will be fun to play with the family, and I'm curious to see how Yoshi turns out, even though I'd much prefer another Woolly World.

Predictions

I'll try to avoid naming off all my wish list stuff. Just making predictions, I think we're very likely to see a Smash Bros announcement, although I don't know that it will come out in 2018. I'll also be surprised if the whole year passes and there's still no word on Mario Maker for Switch. Finally, I think we'll hear about a new 2D Zelda in 2018. Oh yeah, and VC.

Edit: Looks like most people are including wants/wish-list type stuff, so I'll add mine (copy/pasted from the Switch thread a few weeks back):


12) F-Zero - I'm actually a little on the fence about this one after playing Fast RMX and being completely underwhelmed, but I'm sure Nintendo would do a better job.

11) Adventures of Mana - Final Fantasy Adventure is one of my favorite games of all time. I've wanted a minor remake for a long time, mostly for a graphical overhaul. There was a remake a while back that did this quite nicely, but it was only available as a mobile game in Japan. There was also Sword of Mana, but that one changed up quite a bit and I didn't care for it very much.

10) Secret of Mana remake - Depending on how much they do with it. If it's mostly a graphical overhaul, I'm not as interested. But if they fix/improve some things, and add some bonus content, I definitely have to play it.

9) Yoshi's Woolly World 2 - The Yoshi game they showed at E3 looks interesting, but I'd much rather have another Woolly World instead, my family loved that game.

8) 2D Castlevania - No Metroidvania, just another 2D linear Castlevania game like Super Castlevania IV.

7) 2D Final Fantasy - Similar to IV/VI, with no job/class system. Octopath Traveler may fill this void for me, however.

6) Super Mario 3D World 2 - Odyssey is amazing, but I still love the linear style of SM3DW too.

5) 2D Mario - Something new and exciting that revolutionizes the genre similar to what BotW and Odyssey did for their genres. Mostly, just not another NSMB game.

4) Donkey Kong Country 4 - More like the original trilogy, not the Returns games.

3) Mario Kart 9 - MK8D better not be the only MK we get on the Switch.

2) 2D Zelda - No touch/motion gimmicks, just a solid 2D Zelda game like ALBW.

1) Mario Maker Switch - This one HAS to happen. I really can't imagine they WON'T make it. The first one took a year and a half of my life and I'll gladly do the same for the sequel. Just give me more level themes/power-ups/hazards/enemies/bosses and I'm good.

Okay, so my most anticipated is the new Koji Igarashi spiritual Castlevania successor Bloodstained. My others are as follows

The new Valkyria Chronicles and the new Dragon Quest.

Nintendo's new network iteration.

Monster Hunter World for PS4

Shin Megami Tensei 5, Octopath Traveler, and Smash Bros for the Switch. If the switch gets DQ11 Ill probably get that version.

All of these are RPGs I need to diversify or Ill burn out again.

There is also a game I saw recently that is medieval, but without magic or dragons that looks really cool. So I am looking forward to that.

I'm pretty pumped for God of War - but I hope they didn't make it too much like Tomb Raider, The Witcher 3, Horizon, Zelda, or others. I like the God of War formula...HUGE set pieces, lots of blood and action, some puzzle elements, and great cinematics. Is this coming in 2018? lol no clue really, but that's my thought.

I'm wishful for a massive Switch price drop from Nintendo because they are abundant, and because Nintendo is nice and love their fans and give them what they want all the time.

@Karaiya that is probably kingdom come deliverance, that's in my top 5 for sure. dq11 is coming to switch I am pretty sure I saw that

@Admiral I hope the same for god of war, I love those games you mentioned but I hope they don't just turn gow into that. it is looking like its gonna make 2018, but when..hmm... maybe a date coming at the game awards?

Cool, was starting to think it was all a prank.

So I'm most excited for Death Stranding and God of War.

It went down the toilet like a year ago. It was Silent Hills made by Konami but Kojima is no longer with Konami because they're idiots.

They still make console games also. There's a so called Metal Gear game coming called Metal Gear Survive that looks like it will suck, and they make PES.


Anyway my most anticipated games (not sure if some will be out in 2018)

Red Dead Redemption 2
Last of Us 2
Kingdom Hearts 3
God of War
Shenmue 3

ya MG survive I am guessing is gonna suck bad and commercially flop in their eyes, and they hopefully will let the series go, without Kojima it wont be the same anyway. I wish they would make more suikoden, or let someone else do it if they don't have any interest.

im guessing RDR2, KH3 and GoW make 2018, Id be surprised of TLoU 2 and Shenmue 3 do unless S3 is further along than I realized.

Original IPs are risky because you need to convince people to buy it instead of Call of Duty or Mario or Forza. With the price of games being what they are, it's a lot tougher to convince someone to try something new versus a game series they're familiar with and know mostly what to expect.

To do that, many original IP games are small downloadable games so they can at least compete based on a cheaper price point. But once your IP is established as a budget game, it's not an easy thing to make the jump to the big leagues.

So, back on topic. What am I looking forward to next year? I have no idea what's even coming out next year... I have too many games I own from this year I still haven't finished, or in some cases, even played.

Nintendo Invents and tries new things.... Apple takes existing things and renames them, they don't know how to invent. They could not be more different! The worst thing that Nintendo could do is partner with that soul sucking company.

Man, I can only imagine! Just look at what they did with the next gen port of GTA 5. I messed around with it for the first time a few days ago and I was blown away. I can only imagine how insanely good RDR 2 will look.

I think most people's issue with it is that it's supposed to be a prequel so it doesn't make sense to have it end with "2".

Prediction: Metroid Prime 4 is not gonna come out in 2018.
It just doesn't seem like something that's gonna happen. All the interviews I have seen say it might be later, and they did not show any footage at E3.

Games that look good that I can think of right now:
Sea of Thieves
Anthem
MH World
Spider Man (can't play it though, no PS4)
A Way Out
Kirby 2018

The games I'm most looking forward to are God Of War on PlayStation 4 and Metroid Prime 4 on Switch, though I worry a little bit about MP4 since it isn't being made by Retro and I don't want it to suck because the Prime games are the only Metroid games I like.
Now that I have PS VR I guess I'm looking forward to what that has coming out too.

I much prefer a game to be announced then released a few months later. I like seeing the finished product rather than a bunch of "in game engine" trailers that give a false representation of what the game will end up being. Theres just been too much slight of hand tricks by devs this generation that I don't trust what is shown if its revealed too early.

I hope so. But I remember with Bayonetta 2, it was first announced at Nintendo's Wii U event in September 2012 and it took until September 2014 for it to finally release. I hope that won't be the case this time, though, because Switch is supposed to be much easier to develop for.

The Wii U, if I remember right, was kind of a pain to develop for to where the Switch is supposed to be super easy because more devs are familiar with its processor's architecture.

Aside from the major releases next year, I am anticipating more news about Payday 3. I think it's going to be a major hit come 2019 or so.

I'd rather it be released on Switch and look like the first Redemption so I could actually play it. It's nearly impossible to get more than an hour or two of TV time for anything not appropriate for the kiddos. Switch makes that easy.

I'll have to check out the ability for a way out to only need one copy thats a cool premise.

I am looking forward to most of those as well.

I'm not lookinG for last of us 2 til 19..but who knows maybe they will blow us away at e3 with it being closer than revealed and say it'll be out soon. I could see them holding that one close and dropping it as soon as one of the other guys does something biG.

The big one there of course that sadly we will be waiting awhile for is cp2077 :/ they are still hiring on that project. We may be lucky to have that in 2019..but I question the holy prophets CDPR not...they will bless us the chosen when it's ready.

Yeah, I fear a 2019 release, but oh well, as long as it's amazing, I'll wait. Too much to play and too little time/money anyway. 2018 looks to be way better than 2017 for PS4 (IMO) if most of these games pan out.

they will have to be really good, ive got 2017 in my top 3 years of gaming all time. to beat persona 5, my number one jrpg ever and number 2 game of all time, nier automata, horizon, tales of berseria was underappreciated, a lot of people liked nioh,..

2015
2017
1997


but as I think about ps4 has some potential juggernauts next year, god of war, ace combat 7, kingdom come deliverance, spider man, valkyria 4, ni no kuni 2, dragon quest 11, cold steel, far cry 5, RDR2, some of those are multiplats ya, but for the system it could indeed be a huge year, it could top 2017 overall if these are what they should be, even if I don't end up liking any single game more than p5.

For me, I'm not much of a JRPG guy, so 2017 wasn't all that great for me, especially in terms of exclusives.

Ori is probably what I'm most looking forward to because of how good Ori 1 was. Who knows how long the dev time will be though because this is the same studio that delayed their game an entire year just to refine the controls, so....

Last of us 2 over half done? Maybe 2018 late isn't out of the question.. but we will see.....

Apparently no one is safe and any character might die and the story will be told in a way that "may not resonate with fans of the first game.."

I was hoping this was going to be a game more inline with the sid meiers pirates type of game but I'm still hopeful. Just not as much as I once was. I rated it among my most anticipated but also the most likely to disappoint me, maybe not because it's bad but because it's not the pirate game I have been waiting on for a long time. I think with the right people actually trying to do it right it will be fun, but it doesn't seem like the kind of thing that will draw good luck with randoms
