Most Wanted In 2016: New inFamous And God Of War
We already know about a ton of great PS4 games on tap for 2016 and beyond, but there are two more I want to see announced this year.
One goes by the name of inFamous and the other is a new God of War.
Last year, developer Sucker Punch said they still "loved" the great IP, even if their new project was still a secret. They have yet to announce it but chances are, they're getting close; I wouldn't be surprised to see an announcement within the next few months. This is one franchise that has always managed to generate a moderate amount of buzz for the PlayStation brand and personally, I've always adored the adventures.
Then there's God of War. We haven't seen one since God of War: Ascension, which launched nearly two years ago. It's time to talk about the first GoW on PlayStation 4 and I'm willing to bet Sony Santa Monica is gearing up for the big unveiling. Rumor has it that Kratos is gone and the series is actually getting rebooted, which could also mean an entirely new setting (bye-bye Greek mythology?) and likely a new protagonist. But it's the franchise name that matters, as any marketer will tell you, and God of War has always been critical for the PlayStation brand.
If we see both of these announcements in 2016, I'd say that makes for a pretty complete year. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, No Man's Sky, Gran Turismo Sport, The Last Guardian, Street Fighter V, Detroit and Horizon: Zero Dawn will cement the PS4's exclusive legacy, even if not all of them will release this year. Toss in a fresh inFamous and God of War and that's game, set, match.
