2010 - A Look Forward to the Next Year of Gaming

2010 - A Look Forward to the Next Year of Gaming

I’m going to go right ahead and say it now, 2010 will be the best year for gaming ever... and by ever, I mean till the next “best year ever” comes along and dethrones it. I can’t say I’ve ever known a year like it, 2007 tried its hardest with Halo 3, Assassin’s Creed, Mass Effect and Call of Duty 4 to name but a few, but I reckon there are at least 10-15 triple A titles next year, and I’m only talking the stuff that’s been announced so far. Like I did last year, we’ll take it a publisher at a time. Hopefully we’ll be done before Christmas 2010, but there’s a lot of ground to cover, so sit tight.

The outrageous Bayonetta kicks things off next week.
Seeing as how we’re a dedicated Xbox 360 site, it would be rude to start with anyone but Microsoft... so we’ll start with SEGA. Why SEGA? Easy, because they have the first potential AAA of the year coming out next week with Bayonetta; a hack n’ slash game that’s looking to be every bit as good as we had hoped. In fact, SEGA’s first half of 2010 looks pretty damn strong with both Aliens vs. Predator, and a game I still have hope for, Alpha Protocol, hitting in the first two quarters. Outside of that, the 2010 plan for SEGA isn't as clear-cut simply because they haven’t really unveiled their Q3 and Q4 plans just yet. According to reports last September though, 2010 will also be the year we see Project Needlemouse, you know, the return to 2D platforming for Sonic. That however remains to be seen, but SEGA obviously have a few tricks up their sleeves that we’re not privy to yet.
One of the strongest publishers for us in 2010 seems to be Take Two (2K and Rockstar) who have 4 potentially superb titles hitting current gen platforms. Kicking off the year for them in February is 2K Marin’s (and co) Bioshock 2, a title that could go either way for us. Despite that, we’re sure it will sell and 2K will be happy about that. Following that up in April is Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption which looks, how do I put this, fan-frickin’-tastic. Utilising the RAGE engine, Red Dead Redemption throws you into the shoes of John Marston, in a western third person sandbox adventure that looks to put the wild back in wild wild west. Dropping just before the summer ends is a personal favourite of mine, Mafia II, and after seeing it in action at GamesCom last year, this ranks very highly on my most anticipated titles of 2010. That’s the first half of the year done, but 2K aren’t finished just yet, they also have Max Payne 3 coming out in the fall as well, but seeing as that’s an unknown quantity to us so far, we have no idea how that will turn out. 2010 could also be the year we see Spec Ops: The Line as well, although that could easily slip to 2011. Could 2010 be the year that Take Two proves it can be supremely profitable even without a GTA title in its year's line-up? Looking at it, it would be hard to say no.
Square Enix (and now Eidos) must be licking their lips with their 2010 schedule that not only boasts their much anticipated Final Fantasy XIII (on Xbox as well), but a few other of their big franchises as well. Just Cause 2 seems to be doing an Assassin’s Creed 2 in terms of improvements over its predecessor and everything sounds like it’s going swimmingly there as well, but we can also expect to see the return of Kane & Lynch in Dog Days (now with online co-op) and the next iteration of the Hitman series, well, that’s if a Variety post is anything to go by. Despite the report from Variety, Eidos or Square Enix has yet to actually officially announce the game, so we'll leave a question mark next to that one for the time being. 2010 could also be the year that Thief 4 and Deus Ex 3 come out of the woodwork as well, but without them, Square look like they have a strong line-up already.

Is Activision's Singularity the only card they have this year?
What 2010 holds in store for Activision is pretty much an unknown quantity. Sure we’re bound to see some Guitar Hero’s, maybe another DJ Hero which has already been outed as being in production already. We also expect to see another Call of Duty out of Treyarch’s camp, but where they’re setting it remains a mystery at the moment – WW2 sounds like a good shout though *facepalm*. I suspect we’ll hear more about that Sledgehammer Games title, you know, the studio that’s being headed up by the ex-Visceral guys; Glenn Schofield and Mike Condrey. Could 2010 be the year that Activision releases 2 Call of Duty games, with a Ghost game already hinted at by voice actor, Craig Fairbrass? Doubtful, but who knows. Singularity seems to be the only 2010 confirmed title, which slipped from 2009, and whilst my hands on time at GamesCom was enjoyable, I can’t see it hitting the triple A realms. Of course Activision still have Blur coming out, but if it has to go up against Disney’s Split/Second, it’s plain to see which one will, or should, come out on top. A mysterious year of games from Activision, but they made enough money in 2009 from Modern Warfare 2 that they’re probably more concerned about how much the sangria is going to cost them in the Caribbean.
Bethesda on the other hand... they aren’t pulling any punches in 2010, or so it seems. After snapping up the publishing rights from EA for Rage, Bethesda now have 3 potential triple A titles for 2010; Rage as we mentioned, Brink and Fallout: New Vegas. We’ve seen plenty of Brink up until now, in fact, it was enough to snap up our surprise of the show award from E3 last year, and we’ve seen a good chunk of Rage... wait, that won our Game of the Show at GamesCom too, so we know Bethesda are already on the right track with those two. As far as Fallout: New Vegas goes though, we’ve seen and heard absolutely nothing about it. We do know Obsidian is at the helm and if we take their previous games into consideration (Knights of the Old Republic 2, Neverwinter Nights 2, both of which are 80+ on the MetaCritic scale), then we should be in safe hands. Whether 2010 is the year we see Fallout: New Vegas though remains to be seen, but even without that, Bethesda have a couple of pretty special (and different) shooters in their arsenal.
To say we’re unsure of Ubisoft’s 2010 line-up is an understatement and unless they have a few tricks up their sleeve, 2010 could be a bleak year for them. Considering the size of the development studios and the huge amount of franchises they have, we’re inclined to think they’re holding back quite a bit from us instead. I’m not saying Ubisoft have nothing, on the contrary, and with Splinter Cell: Conviction leading the way, they have a good tip of the spear, but beyond that, it’s pretty much a mystery. So they have Ruse coming, an RTS title with a twist, and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is already confirmed for a May 2010 release, but we’re not seeing a follow-up to the 2008 version, this is something entirely different, so we're not sure what to expect there. Ghost Recon 4 and I Am Alive are also two of their 2010 titles, but these are two titles again we know next to nothing about. Are they enough to spearhead their fall release schedule? Probably not. Throw in Far Cry 3 or Beyond Good & Evil 2 and I’d swiftly change that to a yes. A man can dream, right? Far Cry 3 is coming, but when? We don’t know. As for Beyond Good & Evil 2, well that game has slithered back under the floorboards and is apparently "on hold," but we're still hopeful.

Shepard and Mass Effect 2 are looking to wow fans in January.
And from EA? Well, the usual array of titles from all genres under the sun. They kick off the year with their co-op third person shooter, Army of Two: The 40th Day, then follow-up that with a shooter-RPG from BioWare, Mass Effect 2, they celebrate the month of love with a demonic hack n’ slash title, Dante’s Inferno and then they marvel in March with Bad Company 2... and that’s just the tip of a rather large iceberg. Of course you can expect the usual array of yearly sports titles, but 2010 is the year of the first EA Sports MMA title and Skate 3 looks set to make a return. And for the fall period? Expect more shooter action with Medal of Honor and a little horror with Dead Space 2. With Rage now with Bethesda, what else does EA have planned for 2010? Is it too early to say hello to a Mirror’s Edge sequel? We hope not, that’d be a fine end to the year, but seeing as the design process was at a crossroads according to Riccitiello as recently as December 09, we doubt it.
As far as the other publishers go, everyone seems to have a title or two up their sleeves that they’re throwing their weight behind next year. THQ have a few in Darksiders, Metro 2033 and their follow-up UFC title (which I must say, looks the same as 09 in its debut trailer). Capcom have a few in Dark Void (the jury’s still out there), Lost Planet 2, Super Street Fighter IV and of course, their 2010 prize asset, Dead Rising 2. We can’t forget Konami either who might find time to slip Metal Gear Solid: Rising out the door, but like so many other titles in this feature, we have nothing concrete on that to go on. We do know though that The Force Unleashed 2 is set for a 2010 release.
I simply must take a minute to talk about Sony’s exclusive line-up in 2010 as well, because after all, we’re fans of games in general and have no allegiance to any system (something we wish everyone could say). Sony have a fantastic line-up next year with God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, the next Team Ico outing – The Last Guardian – and surely a personal 2010 highlight for me, Heavy Rain. Yes, they have MAG as well, but from what I’ve seen and played of that, it’s nothing special. I do know one thing though, if you want to play all the great games from 2010, you definitely need both consoles.

Alan's tearful that he might make his release date for once
I’d like to say I’m leaving the best till last, but that’s a bold statement to make... and a statement I’m not ready to commit to, so last but not least, Microsoft. After its lukewarm showing from an exclusive standpoint in 2009, 2010 looks to be a much better year... good enough to rival 2008 in fact. 2010 is suitably strong for Microsoft and will be a year where they surely pick up more steam. With titles like Alan Wake (finally!), Crackdown 2, Halo: Reach and Fable 3 already locked down as their 2010 foundations, whatever else they ship is surely a bonus... and that’s not to forget that Splinter Cell: Conviction and Mass Effect 2 are also 360 exclusives! They’re not stopping there though, 2010 will see a few classics hit the Xbox Live Arcade (namely Serious Sam HD & Perfect Dark), as well as the release of the infamous Project Natal and whatever software they’ve got ready for it. Are we going to see new dashboard innovations? I think that’s a pretty safe bet. All in all, put all that together and what you have there is a line-up that will send hardcore and casual gamers into gaming heaven. 2010 is a strong year for Microsoft, that’s for sure.
I’ve probably missed a game here and there, but that’s the majority of the year from a publisher standpoint. Will we see more? Absolutely positively yes and chances are some games won’t even be announced till the spring or summer (Forza 3 for instance was announced at E3 2009 and released some 5 months later). So, will 2010 be the best year in gaming to date? I think that’s a safe bet. The Game of the Year for 2010 though? Jeez, now that’s a little harder to quantify. I’m looking forward to that debate amongst the staff already!

I don't think we will see any new dashboard related stuff, nothing huge like the Avatar update anyway. Their isn't enough cache RAM in the Xbox 360 to keep running this stuff smoothly imo.

@#5 - I know it's in production. Not fanboy-esque... just someone who's sick of WW2 games. There's a big difference ;) Is that how it is these days? Someone disagrees with something so they shout fanboy? *rolls eyes*

No, not at all. But with the ignorance of gamers these days, no offense, and their blatant stupidity when it comes to letting the masses make up their minds for them, it's not uncommon to have people talk shit about Treyarch, or any game/dev in fact, then you call them out on it, and they have no real reason for saying it.

It's not a personal stab at you. I am pretty edgy to everyone about that sort of stuff. Got banned and warned on the Infinity Ward forums numerous times for it, and got multiple people banned for talking shit, also.

Nah I for one agree with you Dan, WW2 has been done time and time again, leave it alone seriously haha!

Only title I was a little suprised to not see mentioned is SEGA's sonic and banjo racing game, it looks good, play tests haven't shown it to be AAA but it seems worth a mention, i mean something that could possibly have a great party game atmosphere about it, dare i mention the fat little plumbers racing game in comparison? time will tell, defo one to keep an eye out for though.

Nice article, lots to look forward to, apart from the gaping hole in my wallet!

Of course you missed one of the most important releases for this year! how could you POSSIBLY miss the return of Splatterhouse?! It's either going to be the most epic, grizzly, gruesome game to hit the 360 this year, or it's going to be an epic dud. The fact it was taken from one production company because it was poor, and given to another to guarantee it'll kick ass doesn't say much but I'm hoping like hell it stays true to it's old 8-bit and 16-bit roots and make all of us true Splatterhouse fans the happiest of all in 2010. This also has the potential of seeing the early Splatterhouse releases (such as 2 and 3, not the first as it was an NES game) make their way to the 360 since they were issued on the Genesis (as well as the Turbografx 16 I believe) and we have Genesis games on the mar

on paper, it looks like it could be a good year. i don't know about the best. ever year looks promising, but then 15% percent of the games will get pushed back to 2011. another 80% of the "AAA" games will be let downs or worst. then maybe 5% of the games will actually be as advertised. don't believe the hype.

@30 Skate 3 has a release date that is mid May or late May this year, hopefully it doesn't get delayed.

I'm looking forward to BF: Bad Company 2 the most out of them all. Also, since DICE is doing the MP for the new MOH game, i'm really excited for that to, so this will definitely be the best year for games imo. I'm actually excited for the PS3 exclusive releases this time to for a change.

@19 its in there. God knows i'd have thrown a fit if it wasn't. Racing games are a lost art it feels. Too many devs try and fail and its very irritating. Split/Second should be very A list :) But we need PGR5 and a new Burnout soon, or i'll cry, lol.

One thing i did just think, it's a going to be a failrly dormant xboxLIVE year, most of the games on my list are single player only (maybe include coop), aside from Bad Company 2, Bioshock 2, much of the Triple A list stuff doesn't have an online :)

Ah, thanks for that mention of the PS3's game line up so far to remind me that I'm not going to be touching that thing for a looooooong time this year. It's all fair game, though: I've been ignoring my 360 for months now with all kinds of great PS3 games. But man, Mass Effect 2, Crackdown 2, Dead Rising 2 (it's the year of the 2's, like 2008 was the year of the 4's), and I think there should have been more but oh well, can't remember now.

But yeah, sorry PS3, you're going to be getting a bit dusty this year. But at least it's not my Wii: that thing has just about turned gray now from all the dust that's built up. :p

@56 - Gears 2 came after two years after the original. You consider two years to be rushed? Hm. I've also never heard of these complaints you speak of. If the pattern follows, we may see Gears 3 two years after its predecessor, so Nov. 2010, fingers crossed! I'm cynical and expect 2011 is more likely, however.

As a early 20th century war buff, I enjoy the WWII games. I agree for the mainstream masses WWII should be left alone, but I still want an occasional WWII game for buffs like me. That is why I like gearbox and Brothers in Arms and Treyarch. Treyarch is fr the buffs, Infinity Ward is for the regulars.

Quality article as always. A couple of games I'd like to shout out, under THQ we have the Relic made Space Marine, the first Warhammer 40,000 game for console since Fire Warrior at the beginning of the last gen of consoles, its looking pretty special so far.

Second is LotR: The White Council. Now I thought this had ben put on permanent hiatus edging toward cancelled, but I've seen a few online retailers giving it a March release date. I can't find anything on it, so I don't know if you know any more than I do.

Third, and this isn't announced, but Im throwing it out there that I believe the next Elder Scrolls game will be announced for release at the end of the year. Reason why? Because Bethesda generally has a 4-5 year development cycle and that time is pretty much up sine Oblivion w

since Oblivion was released. Also to note, Bethesda doesn't just have 1 team, it has 2, one for Fallout and one for elderscrolls, and I should imagine there are other staff that work on both as needed, but the point is, they didn't need to wait for FO3 to be finished to start working on the next ES game. Indeed, FO3 began development before Oblivion was completed. I just think that Betehsda will announce the next ES game at E3 or somesuch and then do a Forza 3 with it. Call me optomistic, but the pattern fits.

Well, I'm looking forward to this year. Can't wait for Mass Effect 2 and Reach. The new Medal of Honor? I'll keep an eye on it. Maybe they'll make the change from WW2 to modern in a way I like better than the way Infinity Ward did the transition. As for Treyarch's next Call of Duty, I'll wait to see what they've got going. If Activision just forces them to copy MW2 like they made them copy COD4 for WaW then I'll pass. I'm going to Treyarch because I want something different from what Infinity Ward is doing, not for the same thing.

How do you play a game where you have no advantage from the next person? Reach is going to be just as gay as ODST, Halo 3, Halo 2, Halo... Great thought terrible games... Gears 1 prob. one of the best games ever, Gears 2 the worst mistake in gaming, because now every game does the same thing to game maker does the same shit.. "User Friendly Gaming" A big reason why COD MW2 was a bust. Someone needs to make a spawn system/engine that works and you will become a billionaire.

Bioshock 2
Bad Company 2
Dead Space 2

Only games coming out worth a damn.

Mix up in words sorry, and to suppoort that every game maker wants a user friendly game so that they sell 10k more copies and then the trade in value goes straight down. Great business plan... but they are already millionaires, give us a break...

#91 is bang on the money.

Worth waiting for: Bad Company 2 (GOTY), followed by Red Dead Redemption, Medal of Honor, Fallout: New Vegas and Halo: Reach. Perhaps AVP, Brink, Rage and Singularity will do something but other than that 2010 doesn't look all that great to me.

#26 There will be a new Call of Duty every year until the Apocalypse. Infinity Ward and Treyarch produce one title every 2 years and take it in turns. So Modern Failfare 3 will be released in 2011 and so on.

I have to agree with what's been said. A lot of those will be delayed, another portion will not be as great as the hype, and yet another fair portion is just sequels of the same game. You could call all of them triple-A titles but none of them will be played heavily for years to come.

Basically 2010 is going to be one of the worst year for games. As the article states there are so many damn good games coming out, but that's exactly the problem! I'm never going to have the time to play most of them especially as I still have so many games to play which I haven't finished yet let alone started (and that's not talking just about last year or 360 alone).

Even though there's so many games I just can't wait for coming out this year alone, I really wish the games industry as a whole could give us at least a years break to catch up on all that gaming we haven't had the chance to do yet.

Halo: Reach, Mass Effect 2 (!), Bayonetta, BioShock 2, Dante's Inferno, Lost Planet 2, and Bad Company 2 are just some other good-looking games on my list.

Gears 3 will be announced this year. Alan Wake will let people down, not because it's going to be a bad game, the hype's just been built up way too much.

Honestly I see myself buying only 3 retail games this year; Mass Effect 2, AVP, and APB (for PC). I'd get Gears 3 too. Honestly this year's looking like a bit of a letdown compared to the fall season we just had, here's hoping thing's pick up.

'07 and '08 were great years for gaming

'09 was good

'10 will be the year that gamers will start to feel the current economic crisis very badly in their wallets.

I'm really looking forward to Aliens VS. Predator. Especially since you can play the campaign from the Alien, Predator, or Survivors point of view. The big thing is will they have Multiplayer with the same scenario? That would be rad if you had multiplayer with 3 teams instead of 2. 1 vs 1 vs 1. Dead Space 2 catches my attention especially with the addition of multiplayer. CoD7 in Vietnam sounds good. Skate 3 is a must. I really hope Valve does take a break from L4D and work on Half Life 2 : Episode 3. That would be awesome. I really loved The Force Unleashed so i'd be up for a sequel of that for sure. Gears 3 would be cool if they make it better. To me it seemed like the first one had more time put into it.
