Up For Debate - What Would Your Dream Game Announcement Be?

Picture the scenario. You’re an eccentric billionaire surrounded by opulent wealth. Money has lost all meaning; you can buy literally anything. But, there’s only so many times you can pop onto Amazon and buy a swanky new telly before boredom sets in. The real excitement is in buying, or funding, the impossible.

So, you have your billions, and you have your dream - to totally fund the development of absolutely any game you want. It could be a new IP, it could be based on a beloved movie, or it could be a sequel to a beloved franchise. The point is, you can fund the creation of whatever you want. But what would you dream game announcement be?

I’ll get the ball rolling, although I find this quite a tough one as we’ve had some great announcements lately for some of my favourite franchises. I never thought I’d live to see a Shenmue III, for example, or Luigi’s Mansion 3, so I’ve got plenty of reason to be hyped.

But for me, it’s got to be a new Dino Crisis. It would be made in the RE Engine used for Resident Evil 7 and would be pure survival horror with deadly dinosaurs. I'd throw my millions at Capcom in a heartbeat.

I’d also be more than happy with a Jurassic Park version of this concept, perhaps stuck on a massive version of Isla Nublar and evading raptors in the undergrowth. But Dino Crisis would be the dream announcement, mainly because it seems so possible. Capcom really got back on track with Resident Evil 7 and they could work some absolute magic with the claustrophobic terror of being trapped with a dinosaur. Surely... surely it has to be on the agenda.

But now it's over to you, my fellow eccentric billionaires - what would you dream game announcement be? If you could fund any project whatsoever, what would you get them working on?

Mafia 1 remaster / remake

  • Front Mission 3 remake (or just reboot the whole series on PC) with modern engine on PC

  • Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War PC reboot and done the way 1st one was done... an actual real time strategy with base building and real campaign story for all species!

  • Half-Life 2: Episode 3 and then Half-Life 3

There are plenty more but i would be happy with any of these for the start...

Haven't played half life but I'd love the other 2
Also a new portal, bioshock and midnight club would be great

A new Parasite Eve game would be great, that is if most of the original devs who worked on the first one are involved. SE's current devs make boring games.

Dino Crisis 3 or 2 remastered, a proper Star Wars KotOR 3 singleplayer like the other 2, a Syphon Filter, a Japanese Assassin's Creed, a good Gothic, plus others I can't remember now. Another silent game that came out which I wasn't expecting was X4, which I might try soon, but it's a deep game for which I don't have as much time to spare as I'd wish.

I would love a diablo 2 remaster/remake, that game stole too many hours off me and i want some of that nostalgia back, with a new flare.

-Red Dead Redemption 1 & 2 together, releasing on PC. I'd love to see that.


-another Mass Effect game. Bioware have been hinting at it...or maybe they're just toying with us. But at least they still celebrate N7 day and even acknowledge that it'd been a decade since the original game was released...unlike Valve, with the Half-Life series, who let all hope for it completely evaporate.


-I'd love to see that recently released Spider-Man game on the PS4 come to PC. That'll never happen, because of the publisher, but hey, that's what dreams are for!

Don't hold your breath with any IP Bethesda develops because they've been going downhill since Oblivion in the development department. If it wasn't for mods to save their games then they'd be up ....'s creek.

Remakes of the old ps2 Socom games where the online, AI, performance, and graphics are improved drastically. Those games had so much potential and were so much fun, but they were bogged down by all of those things.
