Top 10 Most Anticipated Video Games Sequels Of 2016
2016 has been a strange one for the industry calendar. In the past six months alone, we’ve had dozens of rumoured releases – whether announced officially or otherwise – just up and go AWOL without a trace.
Despite the fact that publishers often overload the fourth quarter of the year with a bonafide bonanza of releases, it can often prove to be the perfect time to announce that a new title is hot on the way.
Indeed, as Gamescom and the VGAs fast approach, it’d be foolish to write off 2016 just yet…

10. Shadow Of Mordor II
You’d be hard-pressed to find a soul who didn’t enjoy Shadow of Mordor.
Not only did it manage to provide Tolkienites with a vibrant, gritty and fresh take on The Lord of the Rings mythos, it did it all whilst innovating the action-adventure genre in a manner unseen since Rocksteady first made waves with 2009’s Arkham Asylum.
Which, it must be said, is rather impressive.
Having known that a sequel to the 2014 sleeper-hit has been in the works for some time now, it’s come as a surprise to many that Monolith have been able to contain their imaginable excitement for as long as they have.
I suppose Warner Bros. have been just a wee bit occupied with Batman for a while now, but, with the odd exception of Arkham VR, the publisher are yet to announce a big Triple-A release to come in the weeks and months ahead.
Obviously, the Arkham franchise is yet to call it quits, but it is Monolith’s series that’s beginning to show the most promise. We can only hope Warner takes it off the ice sooner rather than later.
