What Is Your Most Anticipated New IP For The PS4/Xbox One Era?
With a new generation should come promising new IPs.
We all get our fill of sequels, prequels, reboots and spin-offs. Brand new IPs are indeed few and far between and obviously, we don't know about all the fresh IPs in the works for the new generation.
But what might be your most anticipated? Will it be something like Ready at Dawn's The Order: 1886 for the PS4? Or are you more interested in Titanfall for the Xbox One? Then again, maybe you're expecting a talented developer to deliver a fantastic new IP; you just don't know about it yet. For me, I'm willing to bet that my most anticipated new IP will be whatever Quantic Dream produces. Yeah, Beyond: Two Souls was a step back from the masterpiece that was Heavy Rain, but I still believe in that studio's message and direction. And their talent is undeniable.
If anyone will continue to push the boundaries of storytelling, it's David Cage and Co. They just need to take the next step, and they need to realize that trying to put more action into the QTE scheme is not advisable for a number of reasons. It'll also be interesting to see if Guerrilla Games delivers something fresh; they're supposedly working on several mystery projects right now, if the rumors are true. I'd like to see that team tackle something besides a shooter. Killzone is great, don't get me wrong, but I like to see a talented team spread its wings, especially with new and more powerful hardware. Take advantage of what you're given!
So, what about you?
