2020 is shaping up to be a banner year for current-gen consoles.
It's been a long wait for Final Fantasy fans since Square Enix first announced Remake in 2015. This modernized version of the 1997 genre-defining classic promises to expand upon FFVII's notoriously complex story and enrich the depth of its much-loved characters. But can it possibly live up to more than two decades of hype?
Naughty Dog's post-apocalyptic survival horror game returns, this time with Ellie taking the reins. The developer's kept a tight lid on the plot so far, but the first game's impeccable visuals and rich, resonant characters are enticement enough for players looking to jump back into this beautifully broken world.
CD Projekt Red's long-awaited follow-up to the hugely successful Witcher 3 drops players into a dystopian near-future California, armed with all variety of cybernetic enhancements to allow for a guns-blazing or stealth approach to gameplay. Also, did we mention Keanu Reeves plays a dude named Johnny Silverhands?
This is by no means an exhaustive list of all the great stuff coming out in 2020. With the impending release of two new consoles, there's probably more than a few major releases waiting in the wings that we don't even know about yet. Will we see sequels to Grand Theft Auto, Breath of the Wild or God of War this year? Fingers crossed.
