Large franchises like Ratchet & Clank could have gone next-gen unique already, however sequels like Horizon Forbidden West and God of Battle Ragnarok popping out on each PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 leaves us feeling just a little bit like that is extra of a half-step and a worth hike than we had been beforehand led to consider. 

Beneath are an inventory of next-gen console exclusives, in addition to some ideas on what we reckon is perhaps subsequent for sure huge collection going ahead.

What sport franchises are more likely to make the transfer to the next-gen?

These are the sport franchises that we expect are probably to be next-gen exclusives after we lastly get a brand new entry. 

Subsequent-Gen Exclusives: Dragon Age 4 

Dragon Age 4

Dragon Age 4 has been introduced — and there are already rumours it’s cross gen — so we don’t really feel like we’ve gone too far on the market with this one. In truth, when the sport was final proven off at The Recreation Awards, developer [name] stated they’ve been “been imagining new methods of utilizing next-generation expertise to convey the world of Dragon Age to life”. 

We’ve heard rumbles that the sport has fight impressed by Darkish Souls, however apart from that every one we’ve seen is a few idea artwork and photographs of lovely in-game areas. It appears some time away, and final gen consoles can solely be supported for therefore lengthy. 

Subsequent-Gen Exclusives: Bioshock Subsequent

Bioshock 2022 / Bioshock Next

We all know one other BioShock is on the best way, and we’ve been fairly clear that we’d prefer to see it go to a model new surroundings when discussing it up to now. What higher strategy to realise these new areas than with the facility of the 12.1 teraflops of GPU energy within the Xbox Sequence X? 

Cloud Chamber has been very secretive concerning the sport, so particulars are few and much between. We don’t even know the way far alongside it’s. Bioshock has all the time aimed to really feel just a little bit prestigious, so we wouldn’t be stunned in any respect if the following Bioshock one ignored last-gen machines.

Subsequent-Gen Exclusives: Tekken 8

tekken 7

Outdoors of the trilogy of Tekken video games that appeared on the PlayStation 1 and the odd Tag Match entry, Tekken has largely been a “one sport per console technology” collection. Tekken 7 was the entry on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so we’re due one other one quickly. 

We’ve got no doubts that when Jin and Kazuya conflict in Tekken 8 that it will likely be occurring on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Sequence X/S. We stay up for higher on-line play due to improved web performance and shorter loading occasions as we prepare for the following battle.

Subsequent-Gen Exclusives: Road Fighter 6

Luke Street Fighter V

Whereas Road Fighter was as soon as a really iterative sport with many editions, the arrival of DLC has modified the best way the franchise does it’s releases for the higher. Road Fighter V was a PlayStation 4 unique that was supported from launch with downloadable content material. 

In a latest livestream, they introduced that help for the sport could be sunsetting, however that forty fifth and closing character Luke would “present followers with a glimpse into the long run.” — He’s clearly from Road Fighter 6, and it’s seemingly that sport can be trying in direction of differentiating itself from the earlier sport by being on PlayStation 5 as an alternative. 

Subsequent-Gen Exclusives: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Next-Gen Exclusives

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order was a shocking sport, however you may actually really feel the sport being held again by the {hardware} it was on. Cal Kestis needed to crawl by means of slim crawl areas to cover loading new stage areas just a little bit an excessive amount of.

Star Wars Jedi and Star Wars Sith had been each trademarked on the similar time, and when you ask us “Star Wars Sith Fallen Order” seems like a hell of a sequel. Let’s see what occurred to Cal after the autumn of the empire! 

Subsequent-Gen Exclusives: Indiana Jones 

Indiana Jones Next-Gen Exclusives

MachineGames introduced an Indiana Jones online game again in January. Whereas we’re unsure if it will likely be on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Sequence X/S or simply Xbox Sequence X/S now due to Microsoft’s buy of Bethesda’s studio, we do really feel prefer it’s so far-off that there’s simply no means it will likely be on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. 

Subsequent-Gen Exclusives: Wolfenstein 3

Wolfenstein Reboot Next-Gen Exclusives

MachineGames different Nazi-punching collection Wolfenstein has a narrative that has but to conclude, and it simply is sensible that the sport to cap off the unique shooter’s reboot trilogy can be a next-gen Xbox console unique now. Wolfenstein 3 can be a good way to push each Xbox Sequence X/S console gross sales and Xbox Recreation Go subscriptions for Xbox Recreation Studios.

This was our take a look at franchises we expect will go next-gen unique quickly. Are there any you suppose we missed? Maybe from the latest GeForce NOW leak? Tell us within the feedback under.
