PS5 Games: 7 Unlikely PlayStation Exclusive Sequels We Want To See Made (Pic: Sony)
Its no secret that part of Sonys success in dominating the current console generation has been down to its stellar lineup of exclusives. 2019 is primed to be yet another bumper year for the PlayStation 4 with Dreams, Days Gone, Death Stranding, and potentially more in the pipeline. However, here are 7 unlikely sequels to past exclusive we long to see.
For many PlayStation fans, Warhawk was their first foray into the world of online gaming. Effectively a reboot of the 1995 original, it enrolled players in one of two opposing armies as they fought it out on (or above) the battlefield.
Warhawk enjoyed a thriving fanbase and it was only earlier this year that Sony finally decided to pull the plug on its servers. It easily outlived the ambitious yet poorly-timed Starhawk and hopefully wont remain dormant forever. In recent years the PlayStation brand has become synonymous with superb, sprawling singleplayer epics though Sony could also do with a popular multiplayer exclusive under its belt.
Often overlooked by those who dont consider themselves part of the PlayStation fandom, inFamous is crying out for a sequel though the chances of that happening any time soon seems fairly unlikely.
Each of the three games in this series were technical showcases, offering up a superpowered slab of open-world entertainment that would arguably help Sony in nailing its current singleplayer, AAA template.
With developer Sucker Punch now fully immersed in upcoming samurai sim, Ghost of Tsushima, inFamous is on the backburner for the foreseeable future. Theres definitely room there for another studio to jump in and create their own saga in the inFamous universe, especially with superhero movies being at an all-time peak in popularity. However, with last years Spider-Man and an upcoming Iron Man game for VR, Sony has cleverly covered these bases.
3. The Getaway
Despite having built quite the cult status over the years, we wouldnt recommend that you go back to your PlayStation 2 and replay 2002s The Getaway. Although ahead of its time in some respects, trying to wrestle with the game almost two decades down the line is a joyless slog.
However, with Rockstar taking increasingly more time between Grand Theft Auto games, theres room for The Getaway to muscle its way back into the spotlight. Sony has no shortage of top-flight talent to pull off a sequel though the possibility of another cockney crime caper are very, very slim.
Original developer SCE London has since been focused on casual, family-friendly games before recently shifting into the realm of virtual reality. Coming full circle, its newest game – titled “Blood & Truth” is being billed as a VR-amped successor to The Getaway that launched next month.
As a PlayStation 3 launch title, Resistance: Fall of Man was quick to gain a following as gamers rushed out to snap Sonys console. It was an important game for the platform, especially with Microsoft well into its Xbox Live global takeover with Halo and Gears of War leading the charge.
Resistance had two sequel and a pair of spin-offs though wed hardly say that Sony milked its nuanced sci-fi shooter. However, since Insomniacs third mainline entry – and a middling appearance on PlayStation Vita – the series has vanished.
With an established world and plenty of lore left to uncover, a new Resistance game isnt completely out of the question. However, a sequel just doesnt seem like a good fit for original developer Insomniac Games. Not only that, Sony is currently pushing ahead with a new flock of IPs including Horizon, Death Stranding, Days Gone, and Ghost of Tsushima.
5. Jak & Daxter
Easily one of the most talked about potential PlayStation comebacks, rumours of a Jak & Daxter 4 come and go with a predictable regularity. Capped off by the surprisingly fun Jak X Combat Racing, the PS2 trilogy still holds up remarkably well – its fascinating to look at all of Naughty Dogs past games and see how the studio has progressed from one to the next.
Its also easy to see that Naughty Dog is the kind of world-class developer that doesnt look back. Uncharted 4 broke its previous “three games and a kart racer” formula, but only so that Naughty Dog could wrap up Nathans Drake story, flexing its storytelling muscles and laying the technical groundwork for future projects in the pipeline.
Thats not to say Jak & Daxter 4 will never happen. Theres certainly an appetite for cartoony, colourful platformers, especially in 2019 as we find ourselves wading through the unending tide of colossal open world games. Following its incredible 2016 reboot, a Ratchet & Clank sequel seems more likely, but were not ready to give up hope just yet.
