2015 could end up being a banner year for the video game industry, and it could be largely due to hugely successful new franchise entries.
Sure, we've got several promising new IPs ( Bloodborne , Evolve , The Order: 1886 , No Man's Sky , etc.) but perhaps the most anticipated titles are the fresh installments in established franchises.
The question here is, which one will stand out? Will it be Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain ? The formula has been drastically revamped when compared with the rest of the series, but provided Kojima and Co. produce a gem that still feels like MGS, I'm pretty sure the fans will love it. And what about Final Fantasy XV ? I have serious doubt that it'll even release this year but if it does, could it rekindle waning love in the legendary RPG franchise?
We get Batman: Arkham Knight , Battlefield: Hardline , Halo: Guardians , and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as well. All of them have a huge amount of potential. But we can't forget the likes of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End , Mortal Kombat X , and maybe even the new Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed titles. There are lots of games on tap for this year that could be amazing, but which will do the most credit for its series?
