#9 – Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Some screenshots of this work-in-progress were leaked not too long ago. Much on the game has been hush-hush, but the rumors surfacing mention the game taking place in Ancient Egypt, and that the working title of the game is Origins. These games have started to come out pretty regularly, so it’s not completely off the table. Of course, with the quality of the series struggling a little bit, this one is a little further down the list of anticipated announcements. I’m still trying to forget they made a movie.
# 8 – The Last of Us 2: Part 2
This one is an exciting rumor. Naughty Dog has to top the amazing predecessor of this awaited sequel. While the game is noted to be in development, there’s nothing I would like more than joining Ellie and Joel again – if only to find out what has become of that desolate world. We only got a sneak peak last year, it’s been so long since anything else has surfaced. We have a trailer, and hopefully, we will have a little more during E3 2017.
#7 – Far Cry 5
Ubisoft has its work cut out for it. With the Assassin’s Creed series running long in the tooth, this franchise isn’t too far behind. Without something to breath new life into it, this next entry could mean make or break for the future of Far Cry. Rumor has it this Ubisoft title will be based out of the Old West. Following a less than stellar Far Cry Primal, the developers are looking to shake things up. Only time will tell whether or not Far Cry 5 will get us excited about the series again.
