Up For Debate - Which game in development do you think has the most potential?

Since we’re already 3 months into the year 2020 and we know a lot of games that are in development, and the fact that we’re all practicing safe social distancing and self-isolation, we thought we could take this time to discuss what game currently in development has the most potential.

It’s been a big year for gaming already, we’ve had two massive games (DOOM Eternal and Half-Life: Alyx) already released, with 2 more on the way (Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord and the Resident Evil 3 Remake) in such a short period of time. 2020 is shaping up to be a good year for gaming already, so what game that’s coming out in the future has the most potential to be something truly great?

And let’s be clear: we’re not saying that any of the other options will be terrible games, we just want to figure out which one has the most potential. I’ve included in this list a few games, so if there’s any more that you guys can think of, maybe we’ll do a round 2? Also I haven’t included any unannounced games, as then the list would be too long (sorry, Assassin's Creed fans!).

Games in development:

We have the classic ‘big’ games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Dying Light 2 among others, but we pretty much know they’re going to be good, right? But then could that possibly be their downfall? We’ve seen overhyping happen a lot in popular culture, especially films and TV, will these too succumb to the same fate? Probably not, but does that mean that they have potential?

What about the sort of underdogs? Like Microsoft Flight Simulator. By the sounds of it, seems like people who have never been interested in the franchise are now intrigued. Just one look at their dev diaries shows some real ambition and flair, I don’t think anyone expected Microsoft to go all out on MS Flight Sim, so maybe that has the most potential?

Both Marvel’s Avengers and Watch Dogs: Legion have been delayed to later dates, but the question is: do those delays mean better quality? Watch Dogs has had a rollercoaster of a ride of success and acclaim, from the divisive original Watch Dogs, to the again divisive Watch Dogs 2, Watch Dogs: Legion could shape up to be something special, or just more of the same. And Marvel’s Spiderman did really well on PlayStation 4, could the Avengers do better?

And what about the competitive multiplayer game Overwatch 2? Or the blood-sucking RPG Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2? Both are very much highly anticipated by fans, but which one has more potential than the other?

What do you guys think? Which game has the most potential to you? Are there any other games you’d want to see on this list? Let us know and we might do another one!

MFS is not the game i'm the most excited about to play. But it does feel like one of the most exciting leaps in what is possible in a game in years.

I voted for MS Flight Simulator only because something this massive has never been done, to my knowledge, before. To have real time map data put into a game, to me is insane, and makes me super excited to see what happens when they release. I know cyberpunk will already be great, because its CDPR :)

I'd vote both cyberpunk and ms flight sim, but ms flightsim seems more like a simulator rather than a game. You can geek out on flying such a machine, but there's not much else to do I think.
There should be a balance between simulation (or realism) and it being a game. Example would be Euro Truck Simulator 2. It is pretty basic in terms of simulation and realism and it has a game aspect to it (growing your company, delivering freights, modifying your truck, etc). So my choice is cyberpunk, as that is what you could call a real game

Some could consider fsx to be a game because it features missions and competitions. But the main focus was obviously to be a simulator. So let's see what Microsoft delivers :)

I'm mostly looking forward to Baldur's Gate 3, Elden Ring and updates to Monters Hunter World, not really interested in any of the games above tbh

There was never any doubt who would "win" this debate.

Bannerlord. Where's Bannerlord? The modding scene for that game will likely be as huge as previous titles. More modable the game is, the better it is. It keeps the games fresh and potentially everlasting depending on the community and the extent to which you can mod it.

As if this was ever going to be a legit competition.


Cyberpunk 2077 FTW and also CDPR are the only notable developers to contribute USD $1 million to fighting CVOID-19 in Poland.

Well I've been around long enough to have seen the first Flight sims come out. Flight simulator over the years had a couple of versions that shook things up at the time. But you really have to be into it, for it to be interesting IMHO. Personally I'm looking out for Cyberpunk 2077, and of course the FF VII re-make.

CP 2077. Also Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 (as Part 1 is about to be released). The true potential of the Remake will be defined by the second part as that was where the original went open-world and the developers & SE will need to decide just how far they are willing to go .

Not taking CP2077 into account than probably Dying Light 2 and Bloodlines 2. I really want to say Watch Dogs Legion has a potential but looking how the previous games were and knowing how EA of Europe a.k.a. Ubisoft operates, I don't have much hope.

I'd say Avengers/Flight Simulator because Dying Light and 2077 are pretty much guaranteed. Watch Dogs is out of my books since both last had sh** optimization.

Cyberpunk pretty much has no competition. :-D But in any case, I also have hopes for Dying Light 2 and Bloodlines 2. Well, maybe Watch Dogs will finally get it right, I mean, third time is a charm, I guess. :-D But I am not really sure about WD. I do like the concept of changing bodies. It was one of more interesting concept of Driver: San Francisco,...

... with whole dialogues main character had with other people in car you shifted to. So maybe they can do something cool with that. But it is Ubisoft, it just depend on which end of their period you get them. They can do well, they just sometimes decide they want to be EA.
