2021 seems to be an exciting year with the recently launched next-gen consoles Xbox Series X|S and PS5. We can expect some fantastic games this year, for these high-end consoles. Regarding all these consoles and with the up-coming games this year is going to be a sensational one, from this point the next phase of gaming could appear. So, we are here with the top 5 gaming predictions for 2021.
Release of Halo Infinite
After a long wait for the development, it seems that Halo Infinite is going to release in 2021. 343 Industries is preparing for a long time for this game to come back with a bang, after struggling with Halo: Master Chief Collection.
The recent map tease of Halo Infinite made the fans crazy with its incredible graphics and gorgeous art style. In December, 343 had disclosed why the team is spending so much time on this title.
The New Mass Effect Connects A Line To Andromeda
It was a big surprise by seeing the trailer of a new Mass Effect game in The Game Awards 2020. The release date is not yet confirmed but we can predict that BioWare is going to reveal in 2021, how the new Mass Effect is connected to the rest of the franchise.
If you focus on the trailer, it contains a line, “Ark 6 is away. Godspeed.” These Arks were the big ships used to travel to Andromeda, and if you remember only five of them were sent prior to the events of Mass Effect 3. Let’s see if the sixth one is constructed and ready to find a new home by leaving the Milky Way.
The Remake of Metal Gear Solid
Sony is now very much active about delivering games that contain nostalgia and give the PlayStation pride to the console owners. To revive Konami’s iconic action franchise Sony is now spreading its hands to work together.
There wouldn’t be any problem if a full remake is done by an outside studio. This will reduce Konami’s cost for development.
Xbox Includes Final Fantasy XIV
Having all the other Final Fantasy titles available on Xbox, it feels a void place remains for the FFXIV to be filled. It seems FFXIV is going to have a big year in 2021.
Phil Spencer said in an interview, “I wanted you to know, rest assured that we will be bringing that game [Final Fantasy XIV] to Xbox. We have a great relationship with Yoshida-san and we’re working through what it means to bring [to Xbox] a cross-platform MMO that they’ve run for years.”
The free trial of FFXIV is available which contains the base game. On Xbox Game Pass, a huge portion of Square Enix’s games is live.
A New Switch Model From Nintendo
This prediction is not so hard because it has previously reported many times that Nintendo is working on a new upgraded Switch and have a plan to release it in 2021. Every time Nintendo downplayed this rumor about the new hardware.
After the next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft, it makes sense if a new Switch is coming in 2021 for its fans.
