Aw bummer, is the sequel Switch only?

It’s probably coming to other platforms as well, but it sounds like it was announced for the Switch for Fall 2020. I’m guessing other platforms will follow in early 2021.

These are the ones I will buy.

Delayed till March 11th.

Just Cyberpunk 2077.

Kerbal Space Program 2! The game I’m most excited about.
Crusader Kings 3
Microsoft Flight Simulator
Cyberpunk 2077
Alliance of the Sacred Suns

I almost never know in advance what I’m going to end up loving from a given year’s selection of games. I look forward to finding out, though.

In order:

  • Cyberpunk
  • Bloodlines II
  • Mount and Blade II
  • Distant World II/ Crusader Kings III (but these two only make the list if the UI scales for aging eyes at 1440p)

I am also keeping an eye on several MMO’s (Amazon’s New World, Pantheon, Crowfall and Camelot Unchained), but they’re all “wait and see” games for me.

I just discovered somewhere upthread that Evil Genius 2 is going to be a thing? That definitely intrigues me.

Cyperpunk 2077
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines II
Baldur’s Gate 3

These are the big ones that have me excited. The remake of Warcraft 3 interests me, and there are certainly other maybes, but these would have to be universally hated out of the gate to turn me off of them – and maybe not even then.

The next Assassin’s Creed sounds interesting. I hope it exploits the next console gen and has a map the size of Earth.

It’ll still have a question mark or task every 5 feet. :)

Mainly these:
Baldurs Gate 3
Desperados 3
Cyberpunk

Keeping an open mind about these:
Ghost of Tsushima
Watch Dogs Infinite
Wasteland 3
Bloodlines 2
12 Minutes
Everwild

Lastly I suspect the Marvels Avengers game will be crap, but if its anything like the recent Spiderman game, I’m up for it!

Watch Dogs Infinite is the rumoured Watchdogs/Halo crossover I hope :)

This is one instance in which I’m looking forward to Watchdogs Infinite less than I am both Watch Dogs Legion and Halo Infinite.

I think people are being a little crazy thinking Baldur’s Gate 3 is coming out this year. I thought the Divinity studio just announced last year that they’ll start making it? Don’t you want to give them at least two years to finish a project of that scope? Preferrably 3 years? I know Obsidian did Fallout New Vegas and KOTOR 2 in only a year, but not every studio can work at that breakneck speed.

Delayed to 2021 or later.

For awhile it seemed the first quarter of 2020 was super jam packed, but looking at upcoming releases, a lot of stuff got delayed further into the year.

Are you sure? I’ve read rumors of a delay to “Fiscal Year 2021,” but that could still mean mid-2020.

Yep I’m sure.

So that’s why you’re holding on like a champ ! :P
