2. Shenmue 3
It’s been almost 16 years since Shenmue 2 came out on the Dreamcast, itself and the first game being insanely popular. However, with the end of the Dreamcast’s lifespan coming early, no one ever thought we would get to see the end of the epic tale that was always planned to be a trilogy.
That all changed when the Kickstarter for Shenmue 3 was announced at E3 2015. It broke records for being the fastest fully funded project on the website at the time and has amassed far more than required. As such, hopes are high that Shenmue 3 will capture the magic of the original 2 games, whilst also giving us a true ending to this amazing story.
1. Red Dead Redemption 2
One game no one ever expected to get a sequel was Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar’s answer to the wild west genre. In true GTA style, the game was an open-world action game with a deep storyline and over-the-top missions.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is certain to follow suit, improving on everything that made the original game an absolute classic of the industry. Rockstar announced it with just a header image on Twitter, and the internet broke! Therefore, it is safe to say that Red Dead Redemption 2 is one the most anticipated games for PS4 in 2018, without a shadow of a doubt.
It’s also well deserved, considering the pedigree that the game comes from, and what it is likely to give us as players. I would say that you should be watching out for this one, but I’m pretty certain you all are doing that already!
