So, with 2016 (soon!) coming to an end soon. It's time to look forward to 2017.

What games do you have your eyes on?

What games do you hope might get made?

I'm all about Persona 5 and Final Fantasy 7 next year.

2017 is gonna be a great year. I have a high hopes that it will be one of the better years in gaming as 2016 just wasn't all that great really.

As for games I am looking forward to? There are quite a lot actually;

Spoiler
  • Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)
  • Resident Evil 7 (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Nioh (PS4)
  • For Honor (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Persona 5 (PS3/PS4)
  • Sniper Elite 4 (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Berserk and the Band of the Hawk (PC/PS4/PSVita)
  • Halo Wars 2 (PC/XONE)
  • Nier: Automata (PC/PS4)
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4)
  • Ghost Recon Wildlands (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Battalion 1944 (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Shenmue 3 (PC/PS4)
  • System Shock (PC/XONE)
  • Final Fantasy VII: Part 1 (PS4)
  • Agents of Mayhem (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Crackdown 3 (PC/XONE)
  • Cuphead (PC/XONE)
  • Full Throttle Remastered (PC/PS4/PSVita)
  • Injustice 2 (PS4/XONE)
  • Kingdom Come: Deliverance (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Outlast 2 (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Scalebound (PC/XONE)
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4/XONE)
  • Sea of Thieves (PC/XONE)
  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • State of Decay 2 (PC/XONE)
  • Tekken 7 (PC/PS4/XONE)
  • Yooka-Laylee (PC/Mac/PS4/XONE/WiiU)
  • Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III (PC)
  • Nidhogg 2 (PC/Mac)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (WiiU/Switch)

I had to spoiler them in the end as this post would have been a page long otherwise. There are loads of games I am excited for next year. I have played 'Tekken 7', 'Yooka-Laylee', 'For Honor', 'Halo Wars 2', 'Sniper Elite 4' and 'Nioh' already so I know those are going to be epic, but the rest are hopefully going to be great as well. 

Looking forward to 2017 a great deal I must say.

I would be pretty surprised if FF7R part 1 is out next year. 

Can't see beyond P5 tbh, but as pointed out, yeah, some awesome stuff to look forward to.

So Persona 5 has been delayed until April 2017.. I am actually rather happy about that as it was coming out in February with like 6 other big games. So to have that month free'd up a tiny bit is great and April needed an extra game anyway..

I was hoping to do a little preview of 2017, but Gamecentral have done one which is way better and far more inclusive than anything I could have mustered. So I'll just post that.

Quote

Confirmed for 2017

20 January – Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)
A very welcome sequel to the almost excellent PS Vita original, and the return of one Sony’s most endearing protagonists and her gravity-defying powers.

24 January – Resident Evil 7 biohazard (XO/PS4/PC)
Capcom seems to have heeded the complaints about the previous direction of the franchise, with a new first person game that puts the fear back into survival horror.

9 February – Nioh (PS4)
Ninja Gaiden makers Team Ninja have been without a hit for some time, but this Dark Souls-esque adventure looks so promising that Sony has taken over as publisher.

14 February – For Honor (XO/PS4/PC)
Ubisoft’s medieval combat game is pleasingly original, and although there’s still questions over the single-player the multiplayer looks to be amongst the most interestingly unique of the year.

14 February – Sniper Elite 4 (XO/PS4/PC)
The Second World War sniper series has always been a hit despite lukewarm reviews, but this new one seems to be much more polished and versatile than usual.

21 February – Halo Wars 2 (XO/PC)
Few probably expected a sequel to Halo’s real-time strategy spin-off, but with Total War makers Creative Assembly at the helm it’s very welcome indeed.

1 March – Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4)
Sony’s long-delayed action role-player is set to be one of the most technically advanced games on the PS4, with its gorgeous art design making it look even better.

7 March – Ghost Recon: Wildlands (XO/PS4/PC)
It’s been years since the last proper Ghost Recon, but the emphasis on four-player co-op in a giant open world environment looks promising so far.

10 March – NieR: Automata (PS4)
Another unexpected sequel, but a very welcome nonetheless, as PlatinumGames are brought in to shore up the action in this subversive action role-player.

March – Nintendo Switch
Nintendo’s new console will be revealed in full on January 13, which means it’s only a few short months until the home and portable hybrid is released in stores.

Q1 – South Park: The Fractured But Whole (XO/PS4/PC)
It was supposed to be out for Christmas, but a delay hopefully means extra care is being taken to make this as good as The Stick Of Truth.

Q1 – Mass Effect: Andromeda (XO/PS4/PC)
BioWare has still shown surprisingly little of the their sci-fi epic, which makes it hard to be confident about release dates as vague as this. But hopefully the new adventure won’t take too long to appear.

Q1 – Sea of Thieves (XO/PC)
Rare’s return to ‘proper’ games is an innovative pirate-themed co-operative game, that’s not quite like anything else out there. Although we’re not clear on whether the spring release is the full game or a beta.

4 April – Persona 5 (PS3/PS4)
Fans have been waiting for it for the best part of a decade, but Atlus’ stylish Japanese role-player is finally upon us. And if Japanese reviews are correct, it’s just as good as everyone hoped.

11 April – Yooka-Laylee (XO/PS4/PC*)
The spiritual sequel to Banjo-Kazooie, by many of the same team, has already impressed all that’ve played it in previews, as the open world 3D platformer finally makes a return from obscurity.

First half 2017 – Prey (XO/PS4/PC)
Despite the name this has nothing to do with the original first person shooter, but is instead a System Shock-inspired thriller from the makers of Dishonored.

First half 2017 – Tekken 7 (XO/PS4/PC)
Many fear Street Fighter V’s failure may signal a new decline for the fighting game genre, but not if Bandai Namco’s attractive new sequel has anything to say about it.

Q2 – Sonic Mania (XO/PS4/PC)
Normally it’d be madness to get too excited for a new Sonic The Hedgehog game, but this one is a 2D retro homage made by the fans for the fans. And it looks great.

Second half 2017 – Red Dead Redemption 2 (XO/PS4)
Arguably the biggest name title we currently know about for 2017, Rockstar hasn’t released a new game in over three years so they’ll be going all out for this cowboy epic.

Second half 2017 – Knack 2 (PS4)
Possibly the least requested sequel of all time, this follow-up to the PlayStation 4’s laughably poor launch game is somehow a reality. But at least it now has a co-op option.

December – Shenmue III (PS4/PC)
Officially the release date for this most impossible of sequels is still the end of 2017. But we don’t think you need us to tell you that is subject to change.

Q4 – Project Sonic 2017 (XO/PS4/Switch/PC)
Much less is known about this new 3D game than Sonic Mania, but it’s by the same team behind Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations – so that’s a positive at least.

Q4 – Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite (XO/PS4/PC)
One thing you can expect from 2017 is a string of stories about who is and isn’t in Capcom’s latest Vs. fighter, because at the moment we only know six of them.

Q4 – Crackdown 3 (XO/PS4)
Despite impressing everyone with its use of cloud-computing for its destruction effects, we’ve not heard anything about this for over a year now – hopefully that’s not a bad sign.

Q4 – Project Scorpio
More than just Microsoft’s answer to PS4 Pro, this new console will be their big push to catch up with Sony. We’d expect a number of new game announcements to accompany it.

2017 – The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild (Wii U/Switch)
At the moment this is the only Switch game we can put on the list, as it’s the only major one that’s been confirmed (unless you count Dragon Quest XI). But it won’t be a launch title in March.

2017 – Cuphead (XO/PC)*
We seem to have been waiting years for this indie shooter to arrive, but the ‘30s style cartoon visuals still look as amazing as ever.

2017 LawBreakers (PC)*
The new multiplayer shooter from Gears Of War veteran CliffyB is already in testing, but it should hopefully be finished and released sometime this year.

2017 – Farpoint (PSVR)
One of the few high profile PlayStation VR-only games so far confirmed for 2017, this is the Starship Troopers-esque shooter with its own lightgun style controller.

2017 – Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (PS4/PC)
Ninja Theory, creators of Heavenly Sword and DmC, have been working on this new action game for years now, promising a realistic portrayal of the heroine’s mental health.

2017 – Scalebound (XO/PC)
PlatinumGames’ biggest budget game so far has already been delayed once, but hopefully the dragon-themed action role-player will at least be out in time for Christmas.

2017 – Rime (XO/PS4/Switch/PC)*
No longer a PlayStation exclusive, the continuous delays looked like they were going to become cancellations. But thankfully this Wind Waker-esque adventure is finally nearing release.

2017 – Agents of Mayhem (XO/PS4/PC)
We haven’t heard a thing about this Saints Row spin-off since it was announced at E3 in June, but it still seems to be on course for launch this year.

2017 – Injustice 2 (XO/PS4)
The sequel to the well-received DC Comics fighter doesn’t have a release date yet. The original came out in April, but it seems like Warner are planning later in the year for the follow-up.

2017 – Metal Gear Survive (XO/PS4/PC)
We’re not sure who exactly is looking forward to the first Metal Gear game since Hideo Kojima left, but for better or worse this weird new spin-off, set in an alternate dimension, is planned for 2017.

2017 – Quake Champions (PC)
As a multiplayer-only PC game it’s clear that Bethesda and iD Software are taking a very different approach to reviving Quake, when compared to Wolfenstein and Doom.

2017 – Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom (PS4)
For a while there it didn’t look like we’d get a sequel to Level-5’s role-playing collaboration with Studio Ghibli, but it’s soon to be a reality and the cartoon visuals look gorgeous.

2017 – Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III (PC)
Sega finally pony up for the Warhammer 40,000 licence, allowing Relic Entertainment to go back to the real-time strategy series that helped make their name.

2017 – Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4)
Originally intended as story DLC for Uncharted 4, this new adventure starring Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross is now a standalone release that doesn’t require the original.

2017 – Gran Turismo Sport (PS4)
Sony has lost so much ground to the Forza franchise (which will no doubt get Motorsport 7 this year) it’s hard to know if Gran Turismo can ever catch up again, especially as this isn’t even a mainline sequel.

2017 – Need For Speed
EA hasn’t announced anything about their new racing title, except that it will be out this year and Ghost Games, who worked on the last one, are making it.

2017 – Star Wars: Battlefront 2
Another EA sequel that we know nothing about other than it’ll be out within the next 12 months. Although presumably this time it’ll cover the sequel trilogy, including this year’s Episode VIII.

2017 – Destiny 2
Activision confirmed some time ago that Destiny 2 would be out this year, but beyond that we don’t know a thing about it – including when it’ll be revealed for the first time.

Also confirmed for 2017: 20 January – Dragon Quest VIII: Journey Of The Cursed King (3DS), 20 January – Yakuza 0 (PS4), 3 February – Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World (3DS), 21 February – Lego Worlds (XO/PS4/PC), 28 February – Torment: Tides Of Numenera (XO/PS4/PC)*, 14 March – Star Trek: Bridge Crew (PSVR/PC), 17 March – Danganronpa 1•2 Reload (PS4), 4 April – Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 (XO/PS4/PC), 7 April – Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (XO/PS4/PC), May – Battalion 1944 (XO/PS4/PC), Q1 2017 – Outlast 2 (XO/PS4/PC), Q1 – Little Nightmares (XO/PS4/PC), Q1 – Get Even (XO/PS4/PC), Q2 – Valkyria Revolution (XO/PS4/PSV), Summer 2017 – Yakua Kiwami (PS4), Summer 2017 – WipEout Omega Collection (PS4), 2017 – Vampyr (XO/PS4/PC), 2017 – Overkill’s The Walking Dead (XO/PS4/PC), 2017 – State Of Decay 2 (XO/PC)*, 2017 – Pyre (PS4/PC)*, 2017 – Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (PS4), 2017 – Below (XO/PC)*, 2017 – Lords Of The Fallen 2 (XO/PS4/PC), 2017 – Kingdom Come: Deliverance (XO/PS4/PC), 2017 – Friday the 13th: The Game (PC), 2017 – The Silver Case (PS4), 2017 – Polybius (PSVR)*, 2017 – Nidhogg 2 (PC)*, 2017 – Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone’s Conspiracy (3DS), 2017 – Shadow Warrior 2 (XO/PS4), 2017 – What Remains of Edith Finch (PS4/PC)*, 2017 – Ace Combat 7 (PS4), 2017 – Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom (XO/PS4/PC), 2017 – Gwent: The Witcher Card Game (XO/PS4/PC), 2017 – PaRappa the Rapper Remastered (PS4), 2017 – LocoRoco Remastered (PS4), 2017 – Patapon Remastered (PS4), 2017 – Nex Machina (PS4)*, 2017 – Dreadnought (PS4/PC)*, 2017 – Full Throttle Remastered (PS4/PC)*, 2017 – Polybius (PSVR)*, 2017 – Shovel Knight: Specter Of Torment (XO/PS4/PC)*, 2017 – Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series (XO/PS4/PC/iOS/Android), 2017 – Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (PS4/PSV), 2017 – Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age (PS4), 2017 – Phantom Dust remaster (XO)

Possible for 2017

Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4)
Not only is Shenmue III scheduled for 2017 but there is a reasonable chance Final Fantasy VII remake will also be out this year. Or at least the first chapter of its episodic release.

Spider-Man (PS4)
Since the new movie is out in July, you’d assume that Sony would want this new Insomniac-developed game out around then – but technically it doesn’t have a release date yet.

Detroit: Become Human (PS4)
You tend to either love or loathe David Cage, creator of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, but at least you can guarantee the graphics will be good for this Blade Runner-esque interactive movie.

God Of War (PS4)
It’s not clear when this soft reboot of the series is due out, but there seems a reasonable chance Sony are planning the now Nordic-themed adventure for an autumn release.

Days Gone (PS4)
Sony’s latest zombie epic was unveiled at E3 in June, but hasn’t been seen again since. But what was shown looked very polished, so there’s a chance it’ll be out this year.

Dreams (PS4)
We know almost nothing more about this new game from the creators of LittleBigPlanet now than we did this time last year. Especially as the beta trial was recently delayed.

WiLD (PS4)
Another game that’s basically just skipped 2016 entirely. Rayman creator Michel Ancel’s shaman sim will hopefully be out this year, although we doubt that’s the case for Beyond Good & Evil 2.

Dead Island 2 (XO/PS4/PC)
What exactly is going on with this sequel is unclear, since Deep Silver kicked Yager off the project and replaced them with Sonic & All-Stars Racing maker Sumo Digital.

Unlikely for 2017

The Last of Us Part II (PS4)
By Naughty Dog’s own admission they’ve barely started on the follow-up to the critically acclaimed original, so there’s very little chance it’ll be ready for 2017.

Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night (Wii U/XO/PS4/PC/PSV)
The Kickstarted spiritual successor to Castlevania, by the man behind Symphony Of The Night ones, has officially been delayed until Q1 of 2018. Bummer.

Kingdom Hearts III (XO/PS4)
Considering how little of the game has been shown in public so far it seems highly unlikely this will be released in 2017, but we would expect to hear about new worlds – perhaps including Marvel and Star Wars.

Death Stranding (PS4)
Since so little is known about it there’s always an outside chance that Hideo Kojima’s new game could be out this year, but we wouldn’t put any bets on it.

Cyberpunk 2077 (XO/PS4/PC)
Following the success of The Witcher 3, developer CD Projekt RED are unlikely to feel any need to rush this sci-fi follow-up and we’d think it lucky if we even see much in the way of previews this year.

Half-Life 3 (PC)
Ha, ha, ha! No.

Whole bunch of stuff I had forgotten about, the (what will be) Danganronpa Trilogy on PS4 is a particular highlight, I may take a punt on Yakuza 0 as I loved the earlier iterations of that series, then there's Kingdom Come: Deliverance which I'm certain my kickstarter backing will bag me the digital release on PS4.

My most anticipated games are no surprise whatsoever; Persona 5, RDR 2, Ni No Kuni 2 and Mass Effect: Andromeda. The first three I have no doubt will live up to expectations, as for ME...I kind of hope it gets kicked to Q3 or even Q4.

The game I'm most looking forward to is one not included on that list, Divinity Original Sin 2. The previous game was absolutely superb, easily my favourite RPG of the past few years, the feedback on the early access content seems very positive.

I'll be picking up Dawn of War 3 too

If Red Dead 2 is 2017 then that's my answer.

Other than that I doubt I'll play any :D

I might pick up that Banjo Kazooie sequel though.

Just for a laugh... With my cynical hat on.
 

20 January – Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)
No shits will be given

24 January – Resident Evil 7 biohazard (XO/PS4/PC)
An interesting experiment which doesn't wholly work and sells next to nothing

9 February – Nioh (PS4)
People who like Dark Souls will like it but say it's not quite Dark Souls. Nobody else cares

14 February – For Honor (XO/PS4/PC)
Will review fairly well with the caveat 'only if you play with some mates', sell fairly well for a week and then be bargain basement fodder, sadly.

14 February – Sniper Elite 4 (XO/PS4/PC)
It'll review eactly as well as 3, and sell exactly as many copies.

21 February – Halo Wars 2 (XO/PC)
Will have a vocal minority who lap it up, literally nobody else cares. Will review well.

1 March – Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4)
Every review will talk about how pretty it is, and thats it. Will awe with it's beauty and do nothing else beyond competent, but will sell and be on a few GOTY lists.

7 March – Ghost Recon: Wildlands (XO/PS4/PC)
Decent reviews, ok sales, on offer by Autumn.

10 March – NieR: Automata (PS4)
7/10 everywhere, 10 people that love NieR will orgasm for the 4 hours it takes to finish, and then the game will never be seen again.

March – Nintendo Switch
The launch will be summed up by a single sound - the mildly interested 'oh'. It'll get cautious praise, and then it'll do it's best Wii U impression.

Q1 – South Park: The Fractured But Whole (XO/PS4/PC)
It'll be slightly worse than the first one.

Q1 – Mass Effect: Andromeda (XO/PS4/PC)
Nailed on disappointment. It'll get good reviews but won't have the joyous support of the original trilogy, let alone the outright brilliance of 2, and it'll pass people by after an early flurry at it's shiny frontloaded stuff.

Q1 – Sea of Thieves (XO/PC)
Will be delayed and will be a fantastic idea on paper that nobody will ever actually play. Some reviewers will play it perfect circumstances with a bunch of friends and laud it, everyone else will scratch their heads.

4 April – Persona 5 (PS3/PS4)
Literally doesn't matter what reviews or sales happen, fans will buy and fans will love it and thats all there is to it.

11 April – Yooka-Laylee (XO/PS4/PC*)
8/10s everywhere praising it's wry nostalgia, caveated with talk of it having the same problems these games did 15 years ago.

First half 2017 – Prey (XO/PS4/PC)
It'll slip, it'll review well, and nobody will buy it.

First half 2017 – Tekken 7 (XO/PS4/PC)
7/10s everywhere, if you like Tekken you'll like it, and never hear of it again.

Q2 – Sonic Mania (XO/PS4/PC)
It's a Sonic game released after 1996, it'll be rubbish.

Second half 2017 – Red Dead Redemption 2 (XO/PS4)
Even money it slips to 2018, and is spectacular.

Second half 2017 – Knack 2 (PS4)
Nobody cares. Not even Sony.

December – Shenmue III (PS4/PC)
A glorious car crash, the poster boy for generations to come of the false power of nostalgia.

Q4 – Project Sonic 2017 (XO/PS4/Switch/PC)
It's a Sonic game, it'll be rubbish.

Q4 – Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite (XO/PS4/PC)
It'll be riddled with DLC, will be hopeless on release, will probably slip to 2018 and will be missing half the characters people want.

Q4 – Crackdown 3 (XO/PS4)
A tech demo which will gain some support but ultimately is a gimmick with a game barely stuck to it.

Q4 – Project Scorpio
Initial reactions will be Microsoft have blown everything out of the water. And then something will show they've actually shot themselves in the foot and everyone grumbles a little.

2017 – The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild (Wii U/Switch)
It'll be great on the Switch, but more hollow than Zelda's before it.

2017 – Cuphead (XO/PC)*
Visuals: The Videogame. Will come out and get praise for it's art and style, which will overshadow halfbaked mechanics and flawed gameplay for a month. A vocal minority will call it s a modern classic.

2017 LawBreakers (PC)*
It'll come out to some praise doing a minor thing different to the rest of the genre, and then never be spoken of again. This years Evolve.

2017 – Farpoint (PSVR)
Follwoing the VR trend it'll be a shallow and flawed experience, a 7/10 game with the VR gimmick being both it's blessing and curse. Will sell next to nothing.

2017 – Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (PS4/PC)
Half decent reviews, then sells 4 copies.

2017 – Scalebound (XO/PC)
5/10, car crash embassment stuff. A few reviewers that like Platinum will defend some of it, but it'll be begrudgingly.

2017 – Rime (XO/PS4/Switch/PC)*
I literally have no idea what this is.

2017 – Agents of Mayhem (XO/PS4/PC)
6/10, the Saints Row gimmick having thoroughly run it's course. Will sell ok on the back of being 'madcap' and 'whacky'.

2017 – Injustice 2 (XO/PS4)
It'll come out in April, and it'll review as well as MKX, and it'll be pretty good with it.

2017 – Metal Gear Survive (XO/PS4/PC)
Utter, utter horseshit.

2017 – Quake Champions (PC)
It'll grab a small audience that adores it for a while, and nobody else will even know it's out.

2017 – Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom (PS4)
See Persona 5.

2017 – Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III (PC)
See Persona 5.

2017 – Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4)
8/10, will sell fairly well, reviews will talk of Uncharted burnout and the series will begin a quiet shuffle off to the history books.

2017 – Gran Turismo Sport (PS4)
Nobody cares about GT anymore, and this'll have a suitably underwhelming release. Technically fine, but dry and cold and cynical.

2017 – Need For Speed
It'll be a solid and uneventful racer with a gimmick that will be bundle fodder for Christmas and no other **** given.

2017 – Star Wars: Battlefront 2
A Battlefield 1 skin it'll sell silly amounts and do wonders for CEX stocks between November and January

2017 – Destiny 2
It'll be Destiny: The Taken King, but with a better single player experience, but the brand will have been burned enough that, unless it absolutely shits out hype from the first screenshot, isn't going to sell more than the Taken King.

Collectively, nobody cares.

Possible for 2017

Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4)
Absolutely destined to disappoint, and if its out this year the entire world will be astonished.

Spider-Man (PS4)
Not a chance of being out for July. Could be great, the smart money is on it being decent.

Detroit: Become Human (PS4)
It's David Cage, it'll be shit.

God Of War (PS4)
The blandifying of the God of War series, will review similarly to Uncharted 4 and sell a decent chunk.

Days Gone (PS4)
See Crackdown.

Dreams (PS4)
No idea

WiLD (PS4)
Big ideas that nobody cares about and doesn't quite work, it'll sell next to nothing but get critical praise.

Dead Island 2 (XO/PS4/PC)
Everyone and his dog knows what this will be like, and critical disappointment is sure to follow.

Unlikely for 2017

The Last of Us Part II (PS4)
This will be out in 2017 in the same way that up will be down in 2017. It'll disappoint either way.

Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night (Wii U/XO/PS4/PC/PSV)
There won't be a Wii U version and when it does come out nobody will care despite some decent 8/10s.

Kingdom Hearts III (XO/PS4)
See Persona 5. And not a hope of 2017 release.

Death Stranding (PS4)
It's Kojima with no filter, it'll be bonkers and struggle to hit 2018.

Cyberpunk 2077 (XO/PS4/PC)
No chance of 2017 release, but will quietly garner hype and might just CDPR's biggest hit. And sell nothing.

Half-Life 3 (PC)
Gabe will be long dead before this ever sees the light of day. Never happening.

Just for a laugh... With my cynical hat on.

Second half 2017 – Knack 2 (PS4)
Nobody cares. Not even Sony.

:D

Re: Rime, it looks like a mash up of Wind Waker, Ico, and Journey.

Right.

In that case...

2017 – Rime (XO/PS4/Switch/PC)*
Critical darling that makes a few edgy cool GOTY lists, and nobody else buys it.

Thoughts are remarkably similar to chindies although i am looking forward to Tekken 7, Injustice 2 & Marvel Vs Capcom.

Also seems to be an error inthe original article :

Q4 – Crackdown 3 (XO/PS4)

I very much doubt Crackdown 3 will be available on PS4

I'm interested, regardless of the above, in 

Mass Effect 

Yooka-Layle

Prey

RDR2

MvC

Injustice 2

Spider-Man 

Cyberpunk 

Scorpio 

I've also got an interest in Zelda and the Switch (in the latter case more of a rubber necker thing) but I won't play either anytime soon.

They likely miss typed. The game is on Xbox One and PC, but seeing how PS4 has all the games this year they likely got into the rhythm of typing PS4 a lot.
