Platform(s): PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X
Release date: December 8, 2021

Bearing a curious new sub-header and running on a brand new game engine known as Slipspace, the first Halo Infinite trailer almost seems to suggest that Master Chiefs next adventure will have MMO qualities to it, or at least be more open-ended and sandbox-like in flavour. That instantly familiar shot of his armour also teases a potential technological downgrade for everyones favourite Spartan, though plot details remain threadbare for now. MMO or otherwise, Halo: Infinite could just be the Halo comeback weve all been waiting for.

Much of the story of the upcoming dark fantasy action RPG remains a mystery, but from an Xbox Wire interview with Miyazaka last year, we do know that the Elden Ring is the name given to a mysterious concept that defines the world itself, and it has been shattered.

Weve long wondered what Microsofts newly established first-party The Initiative has been up to for the last few years - turns out the answer was more exciting than any of us could have expected. Resurrecting Rares cult classic franchise for the next-generation, Perfect Dark could be the next killer exclusive for Microsofts Xbox family, though were yet to see anything beyond the intriguing cinematic which debuted in 2020. Heres hoping the studio doesnt remain in the dark for much longer. 

Sports Story 

Platform(s): Nintendo Switch
Release date: TBC 

Sidebar is back with another RPG about sports... but thats not all its about. Just like Golf Story, Sports Story lets you get up to a variety of different shenanigans as well as a healthy dose of sports. You can explore dungeons, go fishing, and much more besides. Instead of just playing golf though, you can play all sorts of different sports such as tennis, hockey, football, and baseball. With lots of fun sporty antics and adventuring to be had, Sports Story looks like another entertaining pixelated delight. 

Skull and Bones

Platform(s): PC, Xbox One, PS4
Release date: TBC 

Sea of Thieves isnt the only open-world pirate game out there - Ubisofts Skull and Bones is also setting sail, with a much more realistic take on pirate battles on the high seas. Skull and Bones is basically Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag without the Assassins, as its being developed by much of the same team behind Black Flag, and promises a sweeping solo campaign as you vie for control over the 18th-century waters in the Indian Ocean. But the real focus looks to be player-versus-player ship skirmishes online, where each player controls their very own warship in team-based fleet battles. There will also be supernatural elements amidst all the cannon-fire, like the colossal tentacles of a terrifying kraken lurking in the deep. 

Everwild

Platform(s): Xbox One, PC
Release date: TBC

Everwild is a new IP from Rare exclusively for Xbox One that has already caught our attention thanks to its wonderful art style and enchanting world. We really dont know much about this new adventure yet, but the mystery surrounding it just makes it all the more tantalising. Set in a natural and magical world, Everwild promises to take us on an unforgettable experience. From the trailer that debuted at X019, its certainly shaping up to be one to keep an eye on. We can hardly wait to find out more about Everwilds world and the many creatures that appear to inhabit it. 

Little Devil Inside

Platforms: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC
Release date: TBC

After starting life as a Kickstarter project, Little Devil Inside actually appeared in the big PS5 showcase in 2020. This is an RPG with survival elements involved, and quite the little sense of humour. Its set in a Victorian-esque era, where youre tasked with discovering - and fighting - a range of bizarre monsters. It looks like quite the romp. 

Hollow Knight: Silksong

Platform(s): Nintendo Switch, PC
Release date:
TBC

Team Cherry is bringing us another Hollow Knight adventure with Silksong. This time we follow the journey of Princess Hornet - protector of the Hollownest - whos been captured and taken to a strange and distant world. With over 150 new foes and new moves to master, youll get to explore new towns, complete quests, and try out new tools in this unfamiliar kingdom. The interconnected world Team Cherry has brought to life in its beautiful hand-crafted 2D style is filled with a variety of different vistas that all look absolutely gorgeous, and with so many new features and foes to encounter, Silksong is one jam-packed sequel to watch out for. 

Indiana Jones

Platform(s): TBC
Release date: TBC

Announced with a teenie teaser trailer, theres a new Indiana Jones game inbound from MachineGames, Bethesda, and Lucasfilm Games. From the clues hidden in the trailer, it looks like were looking at an Indy story set in 1937, with our whip-touting hero exploring the standing stones and stone circles of Italy. That date puts it after Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Temple of Doom, and yet before The Last Crusade, which is interesting too. From the hints, it may even be that were looking at the story involving a lost race of giant cyclops too. 

Ubisofts Star Wars game

Platform(s): TBC
Release date: TBC

Lucasfilm Games has announced that is working with Ubisofts Massive Entertainment on an open-world Star Wars game. Now, apart from that, details are quite scarce - beyond that itll run on Massives own Snowdrop engine. We imagine itll take plenty of DNA from Massives The Division titles, so expect a game focused on photorealism with an action-adventure focus and added RPG elements when it does arrive. Its clearly in very stages of development though, so dont hold your breath for more info on this one any time soon.

Contraband

Platform(s): Xbox Series X, PC
Release date: TBC

Contraband is a brand new co-op game coming from Avalanche Studios - the team behind Just Cause. Its set in the fictional world of 1970s Bayan, and will be quite the smugglers paradise. Not much is known about the game yet, but the studio says it is pushing the boundaries with the next generation of [its] Apex Engine for the title. 

Bayonetta 3

Platform(s): Switch
Release date: TBC

Thank you Nintendo: first you made Bayonetta 2 possible by bankrolling a Wii U sequel, and now youre giving Platinum fans more of their favourite bullet-blasting witch with Bayonetta 3 on the Switch (in addition to Switch ports of the first two games). All we have to go on so far is a brief cinematic teaser, but its implications are dire: Bayonetta is caught in a losing battle under a blood moon, deprived of her guns (and quite possibly her entire legs) by a mysterious enemy bathed in purple flames. Looks like your precision third-person action combat skills are about to be tested like never before.

Project 007

Platform(s): PS5, Xbox Series X, PC
Release date: TBC

In the works at IO Interactive, Project 007 (working title) is a James Bond origin story thats set to descend on consoles and PC at some point in the future. The game will feature an entirely original James Bond story, but not much is known about exactly what that will be yet. According to MGMs Robert Marick, IO was chosen because of their position as masters of crafting living, breathing worlds of immersive storytelling. 

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II

Platform(s): Xbox Series X
Release Date:
TBC

The surprise reveal of the Xbox Series X at The Game Awards also came with this first look at a sequel to the affecting Hellblade. While the trailer doesnt give too much away (apart from the fact its all in-engine) about what this sequel will entail, dont expect Senuas story to have got any lighter since we last saw her. The disconcerting chanting, flashes of foreboding bonfires, and a man seemingly buried in a rock hint at another harrowing journey that will hopefully make as much of an impact as the original. 

Dead Space remake

Platform(s): PS5, Xbox Series X, PC
Release date: TBC

Motive Studios at EA has revealed that it has been beavering away on a remake of the original Dead Space - one of the best horror games of all time. This version has been rebuilt from the source material, but removes loading screens, keeps it micro-transaction free, and may well even add in some additional content that was cut from the original. Arriving on new-gen consoles and PC exclusively, this will no doubt be the best version of the game yet. 

Metroid Prime 4

Platform(s): Switch
Release date: TBC

You know a series is popular when a teaser showing literally nothing besides a numbered logo can garner 2 million views on YouTube. At E3 2017, Nintendo dropped a bombshell by confirming the existence of Metroid Prime 4 - only to later announce that Metroid Prime 4 has been delayed and rebooted as Nintendo passes it to original trilogy dev Retro Studios. It could be a while before we see this one, but itll hopefully be worth the extra wait.

Diablo 4

Platform(s): TBC
Release date: TBC

Officially confirmed at BlizzCon 2019, Diablo 4 is set to take us to hell and back with what looks like a devilishly good sequel filled with dungeon crawling goodness. Set in the world of Sanctuary, youll battle against The Burning Hells in an always online experience that will enable you to fight alongside other adventurers. So far we know of three classes youll be able to choose from including Druid, Sorceress, and Barbarian. Oh, and remember Lilith from Diablo 2? Well, shes returning in the fourth instalment and from the sounds of it, shell be causing some trouble for us as one of the games main antagonists. Her return ushers in an age of darkness of misery, so you better prepare yourselves.

Beyond Good & Evil 2

Platform(s): TBC
Release date: TBC

At long last, Michel Ancel and his team at Ubisoft have confirmed one of the most asked-for, anticipated sequels of our time. Beyond Good and Evil 2 is actually a prequel to Jade and Peyjs journalistic escapades in the original game, taking on a much grander scale in a cyberpunk, Luc Besson-looking future full of high-tech ships and anthropomorphic animals. The lively crew of space pirates in BG&E2s cinematic reveal trailer are just some of many - youll be starting from scratch with the hopes of one day reaching their level of professional thievery, visiting (and stealing from) the residents of multiple cities on myriad planets.

Platform(s): TBC
Release date: TBC

After years of prevaricating, party pooping, and a preposterous number of Skyrim re-releases, Bethesda came out at E3 2018 to finally confirm that The Elder Scrolls 6 is officially on the way, even releasing a short but exciting teaser trailer to prove it. That trailer in question doesnt reveal a whole lot, but suggests a number of potential settings for the long awaited sequel, from the long forgotten High Rock to the lost island of Yokuda. Sadly, this RPG is likely to stay in production for quite some time, but the more hopeful adventurers wouldnt be completely mad for expecting The Elder Scrolls 6 to release before the end of the decade. Fingers crossed. 

Overwatch 2

Platform(s): TBC
Release date: TBC 

Blizzard revealed that its cast of heroes would be returning in a new sequel during BlizzCon 2019. Yes, Overwatch 2 is happening, and this time itll change up the game with more of a focus on the storytelling and lore of the Overwatch universe thanks to the addition of Story Missions. In these missions, players will be pitted against AI foes rather than other players. The sequel also includes Hero Missions, which was described as a deeply replayable co-op experience by Overwatch 2s assistant game director Aaron Keller. Set in a variety of locations all over the world, Hero Missions will let players level up heroes and use different elements to modify abilities and power levels. With new characters and lots of additional content, its already shaping up to be quite an exciting sequel. 

Pathfinders: Wrath of the Righteous

Platform(s): TBC
Release date: TBC 

Expect the second game set in the Pathfinder universe to lovingly honor the tabletop game upon which its based, in the way that only developer OwlCat can. After the massive success of 2018s Pathfinder: Kingmaker, the team is bringing us a brand new story set in the beloved universe: enter a part of the world that was captured by demons nearly a hundred years ago, choose from more classes, cast more spells, and enjoy more verticality in the maps. Chris Avellone rejoins Kingmaker’s Creative Director Alexander Mishulin and Lead Writer Alexander Komzolov for the sequel, so expect richly dense characters, fleshed-out dialogue options, and some serious consequences for your in-game choices. Plus, Owlcat has listened to fan feedback, so the game will be about 40 hours shorter than the behemoth that was Kingmaker. We got a chance to preview the game, and were certain itll delight Kingmaker and anyone partial to a tabletop-inspired video game world.

Bright Memory: Infinite

Platform(s): PC, Xbox Series X
Release date: TBC

Take the parkour of Mirrors Edge but add a sprinkling of samurais, swords and big ass guns, and you have Bright Memory: Infinite - a fast-action game with touches of FPS, where getting dazzling combos is the ultimate aim. Its the year 2036 and youre in a futuristic city, playing as an agent for the Supernatural Science Research Organization (SRO). Youve been sent out to discover whats happening with the strange sky phenomenon thats been happening, which seems to be connected to an archaic mystery and the discovery of two worlds. Its all rather beautiful, but also mysterious. 

Scorn

Platform(s): Xbox Series X, PC
Release date: TBC

With an art style heavily influenced by Aliens H.R. Geiger, Scorn is a horror shooter with an obsession with everything boney, fleshy, and internal organ… y. Guns look like theyre made from gristle and meaty offcuts, so its certainly not for the squeamish. Figuring out exactly whats going on here is part of the appeal, or gross charm, of Scorn, as youll be exploring, fighting and solving puzzles to understand the state of things. Prepare yourself. 

Atomic Heart

Platform(s): PS5, Xbox Series X, PC, PS4, Xbox One
Release date: TBC

Atomic Heart is a weird, atmospheric horror shooter with some of the freakiest looking monsters weve seen in recent memory, and we cant look away. Originally announced in 2020, Mundfishs vision of a dystopian USSR equipped with robots and holograms is now due to launch on PS5, Xbox Series X, PC, and last-gen consoles.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: TBC

Ubisoft is bringing back one of the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube eras most memorable titles with a fresh remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. It might sound surprising for a studio thats been around so long, but this marks Ubisofts first full-fledged remake, distinct from other titles theyve simply remastered for newer hardware. That said, The Sands of Time remake is pretty darn faithful to the original, just with modern graphics and gameplay.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2

Platform(s): PC, Xbox One, PS4
Release date: TBC

After the release of the first Vampire Masquerade: Bloodlines in 2004, nothing came as close to a great vampire RPG since. Thankfully, Hardsuit Labs and Paradox Interactive are bringing bloodlines back with a sequel that promises to take us on an immersive role-playing experience as a vampire thrown into the world of bloodsuckers in Seattle. As a newly sired vampire, youll find yourself caught up in Blood trade war between competing vampire factions. With dialogue options, alliances to be made, and choices to make, Bloodlines 2 looks like its shaping up to fill the void the first game left behind it.
