Can 2011's Line-Up Really Eclipse That of 2010's?

Can 2011's Line-Up Really Eclipse That of 2010's?

Whether you think 2010 was one of the best years for digital entertainment or not, I'm sure everyone can agree that just looking at the 2011 line-up at face value, there is a good chance that it could equal it or even eclipse it. It would be easy to say then that 2011 could turn out to be the best year yet, but that's boring, predictable and can easily get monotonous. So we won’t... not yet anyway. However, I can’t honestly sit here and say that next year’s line-up doesn’t look incredibly exciting, and as a gamer, one must be happy with the way the year is shaping up, even now. I could sit here and fuel its hype forever, but honestly, it's better to just let the publisher’s line-ups do the talking anyway.

"BioWare and Shepard, looking to save earth in Xmas 2011"

There’s no better way than to kick off a rundown of the year with what we believe is the strongest line-up of 2011 from a publisher: EA’s. Despite EA’s shady past, which still clouds consumer judgement even now, it’s clear that they're a positive force to be reckoned with, and their 2011 stable of games speaks volumes. Not only are EA still pushing new IPs in 2011, helping People Can Fly bring Bulletstorm to market for instance, but their range of sequels is second to none, both internally and through their EA Partners channel. This stable includes Dead Space 2, Dragon Age 2, Crysis 2, Portal 2 and undoubtedly the biggest of them all: Mass Effect 3. That’s only the obvious and big releases as well, and if you take into account the rest of their potential releases, like Fight Night Champion, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, potentially Battlefield 3, SSX: Deadly Descents and Shift 2: Unleashed, FIFA 12, NHL 12, and so on, then EA should have you covered on its own.

Activision’s 2011 line-up isn’t as straight forward and most of it is actually guesswork. We assume we’ll see another Guitar Hero, another DJ Hero and our yearly dose of Call of Duty. What else can we expect though? We know we won’t see Prototype 2 till 2012, but we could very well see Silicon Knights’ X-Men: Destiny and United Front Games’ True Crime: Hong Kong. The funny thing is, that even after flicking through the potentials, we still find ourselves asking the same old questions... which Call of Duty will we see in 2011? Will it be Sledgehammer's or Infinity Ward’s? And will the ongoing lawsuit upset Infinity Ward’s game to the point that they’ll roll out Sledgehammer’s instead? Regardless, it’s a series of questions we’re intrigued to see answered next year.

Speaking of a question we want answered next year, “Dear Square Enix, why the hell haven’t we seen a new Hitman game in the last 4+ years?” We hope they answer it in 2011 with a Hitman 5 announcement or even the game's release. If not, we’ve still got Deus Ex: Human Revolution to tend with, which has been shaping up quite nicely every time we’ve seen it. If that's not for you, Dungeon Siege 3 could be a hidden gem if the gameplay trailer is anything to go by. I wouldn’t expect the Tomb Raider reboot for some time though, and honestly, Gun Loco and Mindjack don’t really strike us as anything too amazing. We’ll see, but I do know one thing for sure though; and that's that it must sting them to see Warner Bros publishing the Arkham Asylum sequel, Arkham City, after they brought the original to market back in 2009. In fact, with the likes of Mortal Kombat, FEAR 3 and Lord of the Rings: War in the North all hitting in 2011, Warner Bros may have one of their best years yet.

"Dragons and Skooma return this coming November."

One of the standout publishers in 2011 though is shaping up to be Bethesda. For starters, they have potentially two of the biggest titles of 2011 in Rage and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but they’ve also got a few that could go either way as well. Namely Brink, which has been hit and miss recently for me personally, and Hunted: Demon’s Forge, which could fill a void that longs to be filled. Regardless of how Brink and Hunted turnout though, with the success and elation of a new Elder Scrolls coming in 2011, combined with the awe-inspiring id Tech 5 that Rage uses, Bethesda should be keeping more than a few gamers happy throughout the next year.

Speaking of publishers to watch, 2K seems to have a solid stable of games for next year too. What we’ve seen of the XCOM reboot thus far is supremely intriguing, while Yager’s Spec Ops’ dark overtones and picture perfect Dubai could easily be a hit with shooter fans; especially its more serious nature. If serious is not for you, then Gearbox’s Duke Nukem Forever should fill a comedic void, but just don’t go in expecting ten year's worth of video games to smack you in the face, as you’ll no doubt be disappointed. The trademark Duke humour seems to be all present and correct, which is the main thing. If you were looking forward to BioShock Infinite, remember, that’s part of their 2012 line-up.

2K Games’ sister company, Rockstar, may not have too much going on that we're privy to at the moment, but Team Bondi seem to be doing great stuff with the motion capture aspects of L.A. Noire and we're excited to see how that pans out. Other than that though, it’s pretty much a mystery from Rockstar. All seems rosy for Take Two though - 2K and Rockstar Games’ parent company - who once relied so much on GTA, that it was the only way they could make a profit in a financial year. My, how times have changed, and thanks to a handful of strong performances from other franchises, they now seem to have some pretty solid foundations and are less reliant on the beast that is GTA. Still, it wouldn’t hurt them to announce the next Grand Theft Auto, which we all are no doubt anticipating, and our inklings tell us that 2011 may just be the year to see that announcement. Whether we’ll actually see anything of Max Payne 3 though remains one of the year’s biggest mysteries.

"Epic's Gears of War 3 is Microsoft's big hitter this year."

Unfortunately, Microsoft’s plan for 2011 isn’t as clear, with only the two big hitters in Gears of War 3 and Forza 4 really making much noise. They do have their Kinect trio too, which they announced at TGS this year: Project Draco, Suda 51’s Codename D and Haunt. Everything else in their calendar is a mystery, which in no uncertain terms, is rather worrying. Considering the first-party exclusives that Sony are lining up for 2011, Microsoft had better have some pretty big tricks up their sleeves, otherwise, they could see their recent domination take a U-turn in favour of their competitor. They say competition is healthy in any industry... but that’s only if the parties involved react to it.

Ubisoft, like they did last year, are holding their cards relatively close to their chest for 2011. Despite Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Driver: San Francisco showing their face at E3 last year, when they’ll actually show up remains a little unclear. We can expect Child of Eden, the impressive looking XBLA title From Dust and the much anticipated Beyond Good & Evil HD in 2011, as well as another Assassin’s Creed. What we do want though is Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Rayman Origins released... maybe even a new Far Cry or Rainbow Six announcement. That might be asking a little too much though.

We’re barely scratching the surface here either, and if you factor in Capcom’s Marvel vs. Capcom 3, their Devil May Cry reboot and Steel Battalion: Heavy Armour, as well as THQ’s Homefront and Red Faction: Armageddon, then the list just keeps on growing. But wait! That’s not it, there’s SEGA’s Kinect game, Rise of Nightmares, Namco’s (or Atari if you’re in the US) Test Drive Unlimited 2 and Tecmo KOEI’s Ninja Gaiden 3; all due in 2011; and we might even see Konami’s Metal Gear Solid: Rising too. However, these are just the confirmed 2011 titles and there’s every chance we could see a Saints Row sequel or something to that effect in 2011 as well – mercy me, I may have even missed a few! Conversely, there’s every chance that some of these could slip. Yes, it’s a major pain, but it’s part and parcel of the business these days. As a package though, 2011 is certainly shaping up to be one to watch.

What does 2011 hold for us as a site, you ask? Well, like Ubisoft, we too keep our cards very close to our chest, but you can rest assured that growing the site and adding new features is always our number 1 priority - as is stocking the fridge with beer and streaking naked down the street to celebrate every achievement. We do listen to what you request and read through your feedback on the forums, via email and via Twitter for instance, and who knows what 2011 may hold... maybe Arcade game reviews and/or an X360A mobile application? Who knows? Well, we do, but you’ll have to wait to find out. Stick with us and you’ll do just fine though.

Great rundown, looks to be a good year for EA and Warner Bros. Looking forward to Hunted as well, you nailed it by saying it fills a hole.
I'm definitely down for some Diablo/Baldur's Gate/Marvel Ultimate Alliance clones.

Ughh I'm going to be so broke in 2011. I'm pretty much sold to buy 80% of these big name games. Not to mention all those mediocre gems I always seem to fall in love with. Should be a good year for gaming though. Hopefully we'll see Bungie's IP sometime in there too.

You've already mentioned games which most likely will be amazing, but then you've got PS3, too; stuff like Uncharted 3, Killzone 3 and inFamous 2.

Should be a fantastic year overall.

I'm just waiting for Dead Space 2. Gears 2 was one of the worst games I've played. Mass Effect 2 was OK, wasn't a HUGE fan. Can't wait for Deus Ex, and I hope to god Infinity Ward never releases another game. Why can't they be like Bungie, where they get better as time goes on? Call of Duty 4 was good, then MW2 was regarded as the worst game ever by a lot of people.

New Vegas still holds that spot firmly for me.

Well it cant be much worse than 2010, just a lot of lame and samey sequels and rehashes. There were some gems like Blur and Split Second and Alan Wake, but on the whole pretty poor. Some originality would be nice, although looking at the above list it doesnt seem there will be any. Deus Ex is the only one that looks mildly interesting and original(ish). Thank god for Kinect (and I never thought I would say that!).

Honestly I will be quite surprised if Mass Effect 3 does make it out this year. It seems to be a bit soon for it to get here, and since it's already set for an end of the year release, one slip means hello 2012. If they can pull it off and get it out in 2011 though, I'll be quite impressed as it means I can enjoy the game that much sooner.

@6: inFamous 2 isn't worth mentioning though, unless it's an article about "possible worst games of 2011". inFamous 1 sure took the title in 2009, and I'm sure Sucker Punch would love to do it again because they wouldn't know how to make a good game if instructions on how to do so came up and bit them right in the ass.
Really, it's quite insulting to games that are sure to please like LittleBigPlanet 2 and the possibility of the new Twisted Metal game that you would leave them out but mention that inFamous drivel.

@8 I loved Gears of War 2, the multi-player online was shit as I basically never got to play a game of it because of shitty matchmaking but the campaign was so fun playing through on co-op, better then the origional. Everything next year looks great... I really wish microsoft would take on the every year release scheme for Halo like COD has. Cause although it might be considered milking it would be the perfect time to do it now... a halo 1 remake in 2011, 1st game of the halo 3 continuation trilogy in 2012, halo 2 remake 2013.. and so on. I really do hope they are re-making halo 1 because that would be the best thing ever!!!!

@#21: Good remark - Dirt 3 looks just awesome, F1 2011 could improve the good game that was F1 2010, a new Operation Flashpoint is ... well, OFP 2 was pretty disappointing but hope dies last, doesn't it?! ;)
And then there is this little thing called Bodycount ... everyone who loved Black on the old Xbox should probably keep an eye on that one.

One of my most anticiptated games in 2011 however is The Witcher 2 for PC (which could easily be released for the 360 as well, as the developers told me at Gamescom) - this is going to be one hell of a RPG-Behemoth and a really tough competition for the upcoming TES V!

Anyway: Deus Ex 3, Dungeon Siege 3, Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3, TES V: Skyrim and said Witcher 2 ... jesus, 2011 will be heaven & hell for every roleplayer! Heaven as it delivers pure RPG awesomeness and hell as we'd have to quit our jobs and abandon our families to play through all of them -.-

@15 Borderlands came out Fall of '09.
@16 Microsoft is going to completely ruin the Halo franchise. Reach is an amazing game and is the perfect ending to a stellar story. Instead of letting Bungie end it the way it was meant to be ended, they will make changes and probably have it end up being a disgrace like CoD: Black Ops. I won't be giving them my money.

On a lighter note, 2011 is gonna be awesome. I can't wait for TES V and Rage!

Oh man, I totally forgot about Brink and Spec Ops, and I thought Rage was farther out. As if there aren't already too many awesome games coming out this year. I was a little bummed that Deus Ex and Portal 2 got pushed back, not to mention Gears 3, but oh well.

I'm also hoping for a Borderlands 2 (Borderworlds?) announcement this year. Please Gearbox?

Dead Space 2, Test Drive 2, Killzone 3 (PS3), LittleBigPlanet 2 (PS3), Bulletstorm, Portal 2, Resistance 3 (PS3), Rage, Crysis 2, Dragon Age 2, TES 5: Skyrim, Uncharted 3 (PS3), Forza 4, Mass Effect 3, Gears of War 3, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, LA Noire (could be good), Deus Ex, Batman Arkham City, Brink, Spec Ops, Assassins Creed (pending name).

Apologies if I have missed out any other potential hits or stand out GOTY contenders.

I must say 2011 looks HAWT certainly as an owner of both a 360 and a PS3, my honest and unbiased opinion is that the PS3 has the more lucrative exclusive line-up. With Killzone 3, LBP2, Resistance 3 and Uncharted 3 probably being my most wanted.

Sure Gears 3 interests me as it is bound to mop up the mess that was Gears of War 2's MP but I am actually quite happy my PS3 will be getting a decent amount of play time this year!

@23 Exactly what i'm loving and dreading mate, the amount of hours i think that'll spend on those hopefully glorius RPG's should put more than a gaping hole in my life.

Also the longly uncomfirmed KUF2 would be added to my RPG list too if it ever gets a release date, the series really needs its shine back with the RTS/RPG glory after the failing of KUF:CoD.

Looking forward to a few "big" games on both the PS3 and 360. Here my list.

Little big planet 2. First one was great, now with even more stuff to put in your own level it's going to be hawsome(!)

Resistance 3 first one was better IMO for both SP and MP. I justed hated the whole class system in the second game.

DN forever. It seems like only yesterday I was playing DK on the PS1. Back when gaming was about gaming, and looking at bo.......oks on, to beat the bosses.

A few of the Lego games they are always a great laugh.

Batman:AC "who are am I?" "your coach" "and who are you?" (serious look) "I'm batman"(high five and a cookie if you get this) Need I say more?

I think this year will be even better than 2010 with core Kinect games, and the BioWare "bookends" of the year, Dragon Age II and Mass Effect 3, along with many other great sequels!!!!! I also hope Hitman 5 gets announced, and am still waiting for Battlefront 3, but I'm sure this year is guaranteed to please, regardless!

This year will easily top the last, last year was good but not great. Nearly half the games were either riddled with tech problems or lackluster stories. A lot of the games I played this past year just seemed to be a product if half-assed development, especially the latter part of the year. Sorry, but that's just the way it seems to me and I know many will disagree with me. But I do have to give it up for the XBLA titles, they were amazing this past year.

Really looking forward to DA2. As for over all, there's several more titles this year than last that I'm interested in, just the style of game I play the most seems to be on a dead end path. Seeing fewer and fewer fantasy single player rpg styles like DA.

This year looks very good for gamers. With my money going on the likes of:
Batman:Arkham City
Dungeon Siege 3
Shadows of the DAMNED
Alice:Madness Returns
the Darkness 2 - finally!
Hunted:Demon's Forge
And, if they come this year the new Kingdom under Fire and Ninja Gaiden 3 let us not forgot those 2 exciting titles.

Already have Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat.

Soon to have:
Duke Nukem Forever
Gears 3
Battlefield 3
Dead Space 2
Batman: Arkham City

L.A. Noire (if on demand)

I think I'm over CoD and the silly crap that comes with it tho.

Nevertheless, I may have to take out a loan ;)
That Ghost Recon looks sweet for next year too!
