As video gaming is set to close for 2023, all eyes are geared toward 2024 and the huge releases that are coming in the pipeline. There are going to be some of the biggest franchises making critical pushes in the video gaming spaces sequels to some of the most successful titles we have seen in recent years. The pressure is intense, and the stakes cannot be higher for a lot of games that are coming out next year.
Gaming can mean many different things to people depending on so many factors. Chief among them is the game itself or game type. Whether it is playing live games or sitting back and playing a single-player shooter – the experience and the desire to have a thrilling time are all the same, and the level of immersion and quality of the game are things that directly impact this.
With that being said, we have put together some of the biggest games coming out next year that you will not want to miss, and the success of these games is going to be truly pivotal for the video game industry.
Star Wars Outlaws
Ubisoft is coming in hot with this title, creating an open-world Star Wars game that is aiming to make up for the failings of the now desecrated Star Wars: Battlefront series. The game is going to be the first-ever open-world Star Wars game, taking place between the blockbuster movies of The Empire Strikes Back and the Return of the Jedi.
The game is going to be a third-person action game, taking inspiration we believe from some of the biggest game releases in the past ten years, including Read Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto VI.
The game is going to incorporate stealth elements and action with a big focus on exploring the open-world Star Wars universe and the shooting mechanics. It’s safe to say the hype is well and true with this game.
Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Final Fantasy is a franchise with some of the strongest fans out there, and this remake is going to be under intense scrutiny when it comes out next year.
The Rebirth game takes players back to the fabled world of Gaia, and opens up a freedom and exploration to a game franchise that has often lacked it. There will be stunning visuals and a customary epic story line that continues the tradition in the Final Fantasy game lineage.
This game is going to come out in early 2024 and has boom-or-bust potential for a craving fan base.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth
Following on from the Yakuza game Like a Dragon, this game sends Ichiban Kasuga to Hawaii to continue the Yakuza adventures and maintain the stunning RPG mechanics that have ascended the franchise to the very elite level in this field.
The early launch in 2024 means the game comes out during a highly competitive time, but the Ryu Ga Gotoku studio team is highly confident that this sequel can make waves and continue the success of the Yakuza franchise.
The Wolf Among Us 2
Arguably one of the most anticipated video games in history, the original Wolf Among Us was one of the most creative and ingenious games to come out ever.
Its take on children’s fables and mixing it with a gritty neo-noir crime detective thriller was a brilliant stroke by the talented Telltale team, and the world has had to wait almost a decade for a sequel to the point-and-click narrative-driven game.
The game is expected to continue the episodic design with a visual and auditory focus but will aim to heighten the atmosphere to continue the spell-binding captivation the original had.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024
The Microsoft Flight Simulator franchise has been one of the most adored simulators in gaming history, and the next one is expected to follow next year, building on the highly popular 2020 release. Ever wanted to do a long-haul flight from London Heathrow to Los Angeles? Now, you can, with this game, get every inch of piloting realism that you could ever dream of.
The game incorporates mission-based gameplay and more disaster-focused scenarios like helicopter rescue and search and rescue missions.
The game is powered by the innovative and newly evolved engine and is going to make blockbuster waves when it comes out for both the flight simulator fandom and video game streamers who want to show off a game as impressive and aesthetically pleasing as Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024.
How Will The Online Gaming World React?
Online games like Playbison Casino, Counter-Strike 2, League of Legends, and Roblox play a big role in why game developers often hesitate to launch new titles. Going up against heavyweights like Apex Legends and Fortnite can be pretty intimidating, but we’re excited to see how these games will fare against a bunch of highly anticipated releases coming next year.
We aim to see these games go for large updates and overhauls to reengage their loyal fan base and stop eyes from wandering to these highly touted titles, but time will tell.
