There have been so many great game announcements over the last few years, many of them were expected to launch this year, my wallets glad that they’re not. But this gives me a lot to look forward to for 2017. So let’s go ahead and take a look at some games that you shouldn’t expect to play in 2016.
Horizon Zero Dawn
From the makers of the Killzone series, Horizon Zero Dawn is a game that looks so interesting being a perfect balance of old and new technologies in the game, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be a must-have for PlayStation players, and might even get hardcore Xbox fans to go out and buy a PlayStation 4 just for this game alone. I know that I just might. It’s currently set for this year, but no word on a release date leads me to believe that it will be delayed until early next year. This will be a game to keep your eye on.
Destiny 2 was originally planned to be released this September, two years after the first game came out. But it’s been delayed until 2017, and we will have to wait an extra year for the eagerly anticipated sequel. It will be very interesting to see what this game holds with all that Bungie has learned over the last few years from some mixed reactions from fans, not to mention since they now have a major rival in Tom Clancy’s The Division.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
And speaking of Tom Clancy’s The Division, Ghost Recon Wildlands will have large shoes to fill due to the successful launch of The Division. But with this being the first game of the Ghost Recon series to be on the newer consoles, it has the chance to do just that. It’s supposed to be an open world in the wild lands, almost sounds more like it’s going to be The Division just set in the Wildlands. I can’t wait until we get to see some gameplay from this hopefully at this year’s E3.
Crackdown has always been a fun series to play, and I know that there’ve been a lot of fans waiting for Crackdown 3. The last game in the series came out back in 2010. Needless to say that it’s very overdue for the next installment in the series. While this game isn’t expected to have a full release this year, but you can play the multiplayer modes later this year, but will need to wait for the rest of the game to be released most likely in 2017.
Mass Effect Andromeda
Mass Effect is one of my favorite game series, and after the end of the trilogy, I began to wonder when we’d see the next game. It was supposed to be released Q4 of 2016 but was delayed until early 2017. And yes, multiplayer is coming back. It will be good to have a new Mass Effect with all new choices and characters, not to mention that this will be the first game in the series to be on the new consoles. I have very high expectations of this game. I will make a prediction, that they won’t mention the events of the ending of Mass Effect 3 due to the number of upset fans with the ending.
And there you have it, 5 games that we wish were out already but will need to wait until 2017 rolls around to get our hands on them fully. Are there any games that you feel should’ve made the list? What game are you looking forward to the most next year? As always please let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
