The Most Anticipated AAA Video Games Coming Next Year

Posted on October 26, 2018 

With just over two months left of 2018, all the best games of the year have already been released, and while we’ve seen some truly amazing titles, such as God of War 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2, it’s time to start looking at what’s on the horizon.

We’re starting to see more companies turn to online elements, featuring extensive multiplayer options, and, of course, the Battle Royale format continues to be a fan-favourite.

But for those that prefer a single-player experience, there is still plenty to look forward to. 2019 promises a wide variety of games, perfect for those who enjoy everything from the real money bingo found at to MOBA and FPS.

1. Anthem

Anthem, set to be released on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, is Electronic Art’s answer to Bungie’s Destiny, featuring many of the same elements. The player starts out in a large sci-fi universe that players can share.

The game will be in third-person, where each player will be featured as a Freelancer, wearing powerful exosuits that allow him or her to explore the large environment almost completely freely. Along the way, players will encounter alien enemies that they will need to defeat in order to collect loot.

2. Devil May Cry 5

Another edition to the extremely popular Devil May Cry series by Capcom, the fifth iteration will be available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The game is set in the original DMC universe before the latest reboot, and will have players in control of Nero, the protagonist of the fourth game.

3. Metro Exodus

Metro has long been a favourite of open-world fans, and Exodus looks to be a continuation of the previous games, all of which were met with enormous praise.

Players take on the role of a hardened soldier and survivor in a world decimated by a nuclear apocalypse, where they’ll spend their time exploring the world and fighting off the many dangers that lurk around the corner.

4. Doom Eternal

After the massive success of 2016’s Doom, id Software is bringing out a much-anticipated sequel. Doom Eternal will see the player battle the legions of Hell on Earth this time, and should feature much of the same fast-paced and brutal combat that made the 2016 iteration so well-liked. A trailer is expected to be released for the 2019 Quakecon.

5. Beyond Good and Evil 2

As one of the most highly-requested sequels of all time, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is technically going to be prequel to the original game and will follow the adventures of Jade and Pay’j.

While the game has not been officially been given a release date yet, the cinematic trailer promised a world full of high-tech ships, talking animals, and a vibrant crew of futuristic pirates.

6. Cyberpunk 2077

Following the Witcher 3’s incredible success, CD Projekt Red is hoping to prove themselves once again with their upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077, which is will be set in a dystopian, Blade Runner-type world with plenty of RPG elements to look forward to.
