The next generation of consoles is coming, and with them, the next set of games that will push the boundaries of what the art form is capable of. Expect to see new entrants in stalwart franchises, like The Elder Scrolls and Metroid Prime. But developers also have a whole new opportunity to define what the next generation even stands for — and redefine themselves in the process.
From the team-up between FromSoftware and George R.R. Martin, to remakes of beloved but underrated classics, to titles long-promised (and long-silent), 2021 and beyond promise to bring us the best of what’s worked before and the promise of what we haven’t even thought of yet. Who knows: the next great franchise might be right in this list, next to all the big series it will soon come to eclipse. And as for those older franchises: well, who’s to say that the best isn’t still ahead.
Here are the biggest games we’ll see in 2021 and beyond.
