Videogame sequels we want right now (and what we know about them so far)

Who doesn’t love a good sequel? One of the great joys of gaming is getting thoroughly over-excited about your favourite game’s follow-up, and there are plenty of biggies on the way.  Here, we peer into the future at the games we know are coming eventually…we just don’t know when

 

Uncharted 4

This one is going to sell a lot of PlayStation 4s. As with the previous entries in the Uncharted series, Uncharted 4 is exclusive to Sony consoles, and our brief taster of it thus far has been truly mouthwatering. That two-minute trailer shows some remarkably true-to-life game footage as Nathan Drake awakes on a dark, moody and sure-to-be-ridiculously dangerous island. Ally mind-blowing graphics with Uncharted’s compelling gameplay and we’re sure to get a must-have title.

When will we get it? Uncharted 4 is confirmed for sometime in 2015, but there’s no set month yet. The smart money’s on the big launch season of October/November, though.

 


Mirror’s Edge 2

Mirror’s Edge is a game that desperately needs a sequel. We loved the free-running gameplay of the original, but there just wasn’t enough of it – and we’ve been left wanting more for six years now. A sequel was confirmed back in 2013, but we still don’t have a definite release date beyond vague rumours of ‘some time in 2016’. The sequel will come out on PS4, Xbox One and PC – beyond that all we’ve got to go on is this teaser trailer.

When will we get it? 2016 is the current release date


Mass Effect 4

Some tiny glimpses of the next Mass Effect were shown off during EA’s press conference at E3 2014, where the game’s development team talked about taking the series somewhere new and entirely different. The most obvious change is that this will be the first Mass Effect game not to have Commander Shepard in the lead role – with an all-new protagonist and setting coming into play. The graphics shown off so far look suitably new-gen beautiful, but with the dev team saying the game is still ‘years away’ don’t expect to be playing this one soon.

When will we get it? Late 2016, maybe? But that’s probably just us wishful thinking.


The Last of Us 2

We’re being a bit cheeky rounding off with this one, since it’s not been even remotely confirmed. But there’s not much in gaming that could make us happier than news of a sequel to The Last Of Us – and it’s not out of the question by any means. Neil Druckmann, creative director at The Last Of Us developers Naughty Dog, said earlier in 2014 that the chances of a TLOU sequel are about 50/50, and he confirmed that talks about the possible direction of a sequel have taken place. “We have started brainstorming some stuff. To be honest, some of them are sequel ideas,” he said in an interview with Eurogamer.

When will we get it? With Naughty Dog busy on Uncharted 4, even if a sequel to TLOU does get announced, we’d be amazed if it came out before 2017.
