20 Huge Video Game Sequels Coming in 2015

8. Hitman 6

hitman absolution

Release Date: TBA

Platforms: TBA

An upcoming Hitman sequel is currently in the works at IO Interactive, with a planned official reveal to go down later this year. Unlike the previous entry, Absolution, this one will have much more open-ended gameplay, doing away with its predecessor’s linear checkpoint system.

9. Homefront: The Revolution

Release Date: TBA 2015

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Homefront is a weird game to be getting a sequel. The 2011 game got pretty lukewarm reviews when it was originally released, and even worse sales numbers. Following THQ’s closure the following year, the Homefront IP bounced around, eventually ending up at Crytek. That developer apparently sees some potential in the series, as they’ve put some serious work into trying to revive it with a proper sequel. It’s certainly an interesting premise for a shooter, so here’s to hoping that Crytek can manage to make it work.

10. Just Cause 3

Release Date: Holiday 2015

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Just Cause is finally coming back, with all of the insane stunts, action, and massive open world exploring that you would expect. The third entry in the series will take Rico Rodriguez to his home island, along with a brand new pair of wings. Seriously, a wingsuit will be joining Rico’s arsenal, along with his trusty grappling hook and parachute of course.

11. The Legend of Zelda

Release Date: TBA 2015

Platforms: Wii U

Link is coming to the Wii U this year with the very simply titled, The Legend of Zelda. Don’t mistake the title for a reliance on nostalgia though, the game will be the first new Zelda game to feature HD graphics. Putting those new, shiny visuals to work will be a gorgeous open world that’s absolutely floored fans with the previews released so far. Nintendo clearly hopes that this one will be a console mover for the still-struggling Wii U, and given what we’ve seen, it’s not a bad bet.

12. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Release Date: TBA 2015

Platforms: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC

Big Boss returns for a continuation of Metal Gear Solid V. The Phantom Pain will feature a mix of reinvented features from older MGS games, along with some very cool new additions. We could talk all we want about the crazy base building features, or the hilarious Fulton recovery system, or even the advanced enemy AI routines; but this is a game that needs to be seen to be believed.

13. Mirror’s Edge

Release Date: TBA

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC

The fact that Mirror’s Edge is getting a sequel at all is kind of a miracle, but we’re thankful that weird, experimental little game now has a second chance at life. Despite the fact that it shares the exact same title (for now) as its predecessor, this Mirror’s Edge will actually be a prequel, exploring Faith’s backstory. This one might actually slip its originally planned 2015 release window, but fans are optimistic we might still see it before the end of the year.

14. Mortal Kombat X

Release Date: April 14, 2015

Platforms: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC

Mortal Kombat X (pronounced “ex” not “10” for some reason), is the next installment in one of gaming’s most storied franchises. Like you might expect, it’s not out to reinvent the fighting game wheel, but it will bring its share of innovation to the genre all the same. The environmental attacks from NetherRealm’s previous game, Injustice, will make an appearance, along with several new game modes, cross-platform online play, and a non-linear story mode, and a bunch of new characters.
