Final Fantasy 7 Remake
  • Developer: Square Enix Business Division 1
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

Final Fantasy VII was a massive deal when it first launched on the original PlayStation. The video game was not only a big hit within the entire Final Fantasy franchise, but it was a massive success gaining worldwide attention from those who were not already fans of the dominant RPG series.

Over the years since its initial release, fans have been asking for a reboot of this much-beloved game and while hints and rumors started to spread out that this fabled reboot was in the works, nothing ever materialized.

However, once Sony moved onto their fourth console generation, the grand announcement that so many fans have been waiting for came at E3 2015. Final Fantasy VII was finally receiving its much-deserved remake, giving the game not only an update visually by mechanically.

While information for the game is rather sparse at the moment, we do know that combat will be more action-RPG based and that the game is actually releasing as an episodic adventure instead of delivering fans with a complete release.

 


Ghost of Tsushima
  • Developer: Sucker Punch
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

Sucker Punch should be a well-known development studio now. This development studio has brought out two popular franchises on the Sony platform which are Sly Cooper and Infamous. Now their latest upcoming IP is Ghost of Tsushima and we’re hoping to get our hands on it in 2019.

Not too many details were released about the game though we have a bit of narrative information so far. Within Ghost of Tsushima, players will be sent all the way back to 1274 Japan where the Khan forces have invaded and slowly taken over the island. Players take on the role as one of the very last samurai who must face Khan and his forces. However, because its clear that using the traditional samurai ways of fighting will mean suicide for Jin, players will need to become a ghost as they lurk in the shadows and use new battle tactics.

 

 


The Last of Us Part 2
  • Developer: Naughty Dog
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

Since the late 1990s, Naughty Dog became a household name for Sony fans. From developing Crash Bandicoot, Jax and Daxter and the Uncharted series, chances are you’ve played at least through one of these franchises.

In 2013, if you didn’t already own a PlayStation 3, Naughty Dog gave you a reason to pick one up. The Last of Us released to become a massive hit and won countless awards. In fact, just a year later, the game received a remastered edition for the PlayStation 4.

Overall, without spoiling too much of the narrative, The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic action-adventure game. Most of the world has been turned into a fungus-like zombie while players predominantly took control of an older man named Joel. Throughout the game, Joel is traveling across the country to protect and deliver a young girl named Ellie to a government opposing group.

For fans who have been eagerly awaiting a chance to revisit the world and our protagonists again, it looks like we may get that opportunity in 2019. Little information has been released regarding the upcoming game, though we do know that this title will see a return in both Joel and Ellie along with a time jump of five years.

 


Death Stranding
  • Developer: Kojima Productions
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

Hideo Kojima is a widely known and beloved video game developer. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, chances are you’ve heard or played through his franchise, Metal Gear Solid. Before the announcement of his latest upcoming installment and IP, Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima was being carefully watched.

It’s been widely covered before when it came to Hideo Kojima’s and Konami’s split. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain became his last installment in the franchise where it was also revealed that the famed developer would be taking on another Konami fan favorite IP, Silent Hill.

With a successful announcement and hype surrounding a new Silent Hill title, Hideo Kojima and Konami parted ways leaving both Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill on the table for the studio. Though it wasn’t very long after his Konami split that the developer revealed Kojima Productions, his own game development studio.

The first title to be in the works for Kojima Productions is Death Stranding, a video game that has been very much kept in secrecy since its unveiling. Described to be an action title, Death Stranding will play on a narrative that connects life and death.

 


Days Gone
  • Developer: SIE Bend Studio
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: 2019

Days Gone was highly anticipated and an expected video game of 2018, however, that didn’t come to fruition as the developers behind the game had it delayed for a release in the following year. The wait comes to an end at some point in 2019.

This is another post-apocalyptic video game where the story takes set two years after the fall of humanity. Much of the world had gone into a survival mode where groups form to strengthen an alliance against the zombie-like creatures that have taken control of the predatory food chain.

What we know so far in this game is that players will take control of Deacon St. John. Prior to the world corruption, Deacon St. John was a bounty hunter, but now Deacon finds that he must use his skills and traits of being a bounty hunter toward his advantage just to stay alive.
