2011 Video Game Sequel Announcements

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.

Modern Warfare 3 Announcement

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?

    If Gabe doesn’t come out with a lab coat and a crowbar, I’m storming the stage. Episode 3 or bust.

    Also, I’ve been sincerely missing the Ratchet and Jak series lately. I need more platformer console love from the big 3.

    Valve almost has to release some information about Half Life 3 this year, they certainly don’t want a Duke Nukem Forever fiasco on their hands.

    A new GTA would be welcome, as long as it’s released on the PC!

    I think you mean Episode three, not half life 3.

      Nope. Could be either. There’s a lot of talk about the possibility of dropping the “episode” and going straight to an all out ‘Half-Life 3.’

      Makes sense, considering how long it’s been…

    All this time they’re taking on Resident Evil 6 better mean they’re working on utilizing Dead Space-like mechanics, I.e., allowing you to move AND shoot…
    Here’s hoping we see the return of Leon!! If not, maybe we could finally find out what happened to the guy from Zero with the tats (Billy, was it?)… Maybe even Claire or Rebecca, but I think we’re getting enough of Chris and Jill from 5 and the new 3Ds game, could stand to take a break from them for awhile

      Move & Shoot coming with Operation Raccoon City. That’s the action-focused game. RE6 I’d expect to be more like RE4.

    I’m looking forward to Half Life 2: Episode 3 or the possibility of Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 on PS3 =D
