Those in the gaming world who pulled themselves away from Grand Theft Auto V long enough to catch up on gaming news found powerhouse developer Rockstar Games is currently creating a “next version of a famous IP.”
This semi-announcement has pushed the gaming community into a friendly debate about which franchise is currently under development. While the back and forth has been light, the following games look to be the favorite speculative sequels.
With so much anti-bullying legislation being put in place around the country and constant news reports of bullies going too far, a sequel to Bully would be timely and have ample opportunity for contemporary societal commentary.
Red Dead Redemption Prequel
Although a sequel to Red Dead Redemption would undoubtedly be a spectacular game, gamers seem to prefer the idea of a prequel. They want to know how John came to be and have a fleshed-out story surrounding his former gang.
A psychological horror game for PS4 or Xbox One by way of a Manhunt 3 would be a welcome announcement. However, the chance that Rockstar is making a Manhunt sequel are slim since it never reached the acclaim of other games in the company’s lineup.
