The Last of Us 2
Release Date: TBA
It’s protected to contend that a finale of a initial The Last of Us left any singular one of us vagrant for more. When Joel motionless that Ellie was too changed to only be handed over and be experimented with, we’re certain that there will be a delay to their bittersweet journey somewhere in a future. Gladly, a initial trailer came out in 2016 to give us a brief discernment on how a tract line will be like.
The diversion will take place 5 years after a events of a initial diversion and story author Neil Druckman states that while a initial diversion centered around adore between a characters, a second diversion is a conflicting of that and will core around hate.

Release Date: TBA
This diversion is not indispensably a supplement nor an enlargement to any game, though it does underline a partnership between Hideo Kojima, Norman Reedus, and Guillermo del Toro.

The diversion will have new elements that Kojima have compared it to his possess game, Metal Gear, deliberate to be a initial secrecy video game. There is no acknowledgment on a accurate recover date so distant though it will many substantially be before 2019. Let’s only keep a fingers crossed that they won’t cancel it again this time.
The games listed above are only a few of a contentment of sequels and expansions that will come out in Q3 and a rest of a year. Many of them embody new elements and innovative video diversion record that all diversion developers should investigate to stay applicable and emanate a hype and expectation they need for their arriving games.
