So last year when I was listing big titles for this year I was thinking god of war 4, spiderman, and rdr2.
3 games I'm hoping release before the holiday period and 3 games I suspect will sell big. But with monster Hunter lighting up January and shipping 5m copies in 1 weekend alone the year is looking even more promising.
I think we can now list it as a big non annual seller for the year. Next up for the big hitters? God of war? Off the top of my head the only title with potential to sell big between now and then is far cry 5. Hopefully it surprises.
So assuming far cry does at least decent and God of war sells big that would be a great start to 2018. Over the summer I'd like to think we'll get rdr2 and spiderman. Two titles I think will shift huge numbers.
All we need then is a game or two to surprise sales wise for the last 4 months of the year and we'll have a hell of a 2018 in terms of software sales. What are the contenders? Could Detroit become a mini hit? Days gone surprise and sell a few million? Could the last of us 2 release? Outside of the annual holiday releases what will move software come the holiday..
Personally I think there will be a big Nintendo game. Maybe animal crossing. Can't see anything from Microsoft. Either way I'm hyped for 2018. A lot of inique titles that you don't see release too often with plenty of potential.
The fact monster Hunter works has joined the big boys ranks in January has given me great hope for a big 2018. Bring it on!
