I think a lot of people out there don’t quite realize what’s coming. No wallet shall be safe. 2015 may be one of the most monstrous years for gaming in recent history. Why is that? Well due to all the delays that have been going on, many of the highly anticipated titles from this year which were slated for a fall release have now been pushed to early 2015 spring release. Now, presuming that some of the 2015 games don’t get delayed, we’re going to see the year packed with big games from spring till fall.
To give some perspective, I’ll list a few of the games that have caught my eye, which are coming out around 2015 as of now. Arkham Knight, Witcher 3, The Order 1886, BloodBorne, Little Big Planet 3, No Man’s Sky, Battlefront 3, DOOM, Mortal Kombat X, New Mass Effect(?), Uncharted 4, Treyarch COD, SOMA, Let It Die, Tomb Raider 2, Dead Island 2, Dying Light, Abzu, Division, Mad Max, Homefront: The Revolution, and Treyarch’s COD. That’s only a sample. Easily I could buy over 10 $60 games next year, and still have more I wished I could buy. I’m almost at a loss for words.
So could 2015 be one of the biggest years for gaming ever? Well there’s a strong possibility. The amount of games, awesome games, is just mind boggling. Let’s just say I think my back list from 2015 will be enough to carry me through 2016 without ever having to buy a single game. This also may be the first year where the next gen consoles really get to shine. The exclusives have been trickling in very, very slowly so far. I mean what, we’re down to Infamous Second Son and Drive Club now for all of 2014? Pretty sad. 2015 may be the first year to fix this shortage.
So what games are you looking forward to in 2015? DOOM, Mortal Kombat X, The Order 1886, Tomb Raider 2, Arkham Knight, and Battlefront 3 probably top out my personal list. Do you think 2015 will be one of the biggest years for gaming ever?
