2011 is one of the busiest years ever for major video game releases, the vast majority of which are sequels and prequels to established franchises. Even within Game Rant’s most anticipated games of 2011, 17 of the 20 titles are further installments in existing series.
With that in mind, there are many successful and high quality games that we know sequels are coming for that have yet to be announced. Some of these games are expected and/or rumored to become official in the near future, so let’s take a look at what we expect are 5 imminent major video game sequel announcements.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
The next Call of Duty is the most obvious of choices for games we expect to hear about in the very near future and we expect the official announcement from Activision to confirm Modern Warfare 3 as the game Infinity Ward, Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games have been working on.
Several magazines have hinted that the official reveal and first look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 would come at the end of April. How will it compare and stand up to what we’ve seen from Battlefield 3, and will it differ significantly from the previous 3 titles in the series?
