Well besides the jokes and yearly releases the only game I remember talk about on next gen was Cyberpunk or the like. No platform holder have announced or will announce their next gen games before properly revealing the console in a stage.

For PS5 I think there will be a few cross generational titles, possibly including Final Fantasy 7 Remake.



Halo is the only confirmed, first-party, big name launch title that we know of. If Microsoft can pull off a great Halo game, that would be very helpful to them at the start of the generation. On the other hand, the fact that we know Halo will be cross-generation kind of runs counter to that. For someone like me, who definitely picks up every Halo on launch day, I don't have to buy their new console to play it. Maybe I will, but I don't have to. If Sony were launching with an exclusive that I must have, that is not playable on PS4, that would be a big check mark in Sony's favor. That might get me to pick up their console first in the next generation.

Anyway, I see Halo: Infinite as crucial to the success of the next Xbox.

I do think another big Zelda game is being made from the ground up for next gen. I think this primarily because they are making another Zelda game for the end of this gen with the same engine.

Let's look at the past when this happened:

OoT launched Nov 1998
Mm launched April 2000, a year and a half later.
WW then launched December 2002, two and a half years later.

I think it's pretty evident Nintendo usually takes 4-6 years to make a 3d Zelda game when they aren't using a prior engine. TP came out in 2006 so they spent about four years on that one. Skyward Sword in 2011. Botw in 2017.

Based on this pattern, I think Nintendo is low key making another full fledged Zelda game that will probably release 2021 or 2022 whenever Switch 2.0 comes as a launch exclusive.

According to rumors it's gonna be pretty similar and even more PCier.

I'd ask 'Switch 2', but frankly that seems a bit too far ahead. 

Launch titles can make or break a system can they not (hello Breath of the Wild!), and I certainly like to think that Sony and Microsoft would know that. I suppose the obvious first guesses are LoU2 and Halo, but perhaps that isn't truely the case.

rumors:
PS4 :  Ghosts of Tsushima + Grand Turismo 7 + Last of Us part 2 + MLB The show 20 + Horizon Zero Dawn 2
XB1 :  Halo Infinite + Forza Motorsports 8 + ???



Halo: Infinite is the only confirmed one, but any annualized franchises will probably be cross-gen. The as-yet unreleased first-party games Sony has already announced but not released will probably be either PS5 titles or PS4/PS5 cross-gen as well.
