Update: This column was originally appear in November 2021. Back then, alike added announcements accept accepted the accurateness of the Nvidia leak. Beneath are the as-yet-unannounced amateur we anticipate could still be advancing to PC, while amateur that accept been appear are apparent with a blooming check. ✅
In aboriginal September, a web developer tinkering about with Nvidia's GeForce Now applicant apparent a way to admission a account of all the amateur in GFN's database—some 18,000. Amid the database entries he begin amateur that hadn't been appear for GeForce Now alive abutment and what seemed to be a gold abundance of amateur that hadn't been appear period. Afterwards the account began to spread, Nvidia told WCCFTech that it independent "both appear and/or abstract titles, acclimated alone for centralized tracking and testing," and that "inclusion on the account is neither acceptance nor an advertisement of any game."
But back September, it has started to attending added and added like those "speculative titles" are absolute games.
It started with Actraiser Renaissance, a abruptness accommodate appear and appear on September 23. The GeForce Now account included an access alleged "ActRaiser Remake." It's a absolute amplitude to accept that addition at Nvidia absitively to brainstorm that Aboveboard Enix would be absolution a new adaptation of a 1990 Cool Nintendo bold on PC. Windows Central additionally wrote that assorted codenames on the account from Xbox Bold Studios akin amateur they knew about: Activity Holland is Fable, for example.
More confirmations followed. Destroy All Bodies 2's remake was appear at a THQ Nordic accident aloof canicule afterwards the leak—and so was Outcast 2. Randy Pitchford about declared that Gearbox was alive on a new Brothers in Arms. Aboveboard Enix appear Alcove Encounters, which was listed as an "Unannounced Alcove Approach game." Rockstar appear the Grand Annexation Auto remastered trilogy. Sony appear that God of War is advancing to PC.
All were on Nvidia's list.
With so abounding examples, there's no way the unannounced amateur on the annual were all speculative. And it's attractive like added amateur will abide to be confirmed: The Helldivers Cheep annual is teasing some array of announcement, and Helldivers 2, abiding enough, is on the Nvidia list.
This doesn't beggarly that every unreleased bold on the account is currently in development, or is affirmed to appear out on PC. Bayonetta 3 and New Cool Mario Bros are both on there, for example, and both are appear by Nintendo. Nintendo might let Sega absolution Bayonetta 3 on PC admitting allotment its development, but Mario? Unlikely. There's an accessible acknowledgment in this case, though: Nvidia had a affiliation with Nintendo to put Wii amateur like New Cool Mario Bros on the Absorber in China.
There are additionally amateur on the account that accept acceptable or absolutely been canceled. Scalebound, for example, is on there, and that's been dead for years. Titanfall 3 became Acme Legends, as hinted at by its "shortName" in the database: "apex_legends_-_titanfall." But there are still dozens of amateur actuality that are absolutely possibly in the works. We may be attractive at a abundance map for the abutting few years of PC gaming.
Here are the bold names that angle out to me. The better I've organized by publisher, while others I've lumped calm into a account at the end.
- Half-Life 2 Remastered
This seems absolutely plausible—Valve absolutely appear a beta annex amend for Half-Life 2 last October, acclimation bugs and abacus Vulkan support. That may accept been it for this entry, admitting a 20th ceremony copy in a brace years wouldn't be too adamantine to believe.
- Demon's Souls
- Ghosts of Tsushima
- God of War ✅
- Gran Turismo 7
- Helldivers 2 ✅
- Horizon Banned West
- Ratchet & Clank ✅
- Returnal ✅
- Sackboy: A Big Chance ✅
- Uncharted: Bequest of Thieves Accumulating ✅
So abounding big amateur from Sony here. I can see Demon's Souls, Gran Turismo 7 and Ghosts of Tsushima in accurate actually crushing it on PC.
Notably, Bloodborne is not on the list. It hurts.
- Chrono Cantankerous Remaster ✅
- Final Fantasy 7 Accommodate ✅
- Final Fantasy 9 Remake
- Final Fantasy Approach Remaster ✅
- Kingdom Hearts 4 ✅
- New action bold ✅ (The DioField Chronicle)
- Tactics Bogey Remaster ✅
- Tomb Brigand 25th Ceremony (2021)
- Unannounced Agenda Bold 2 ✅ (Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden)
There's agrarian being in here. Aboveboard Enix has been hyping up Tomb Raider's 25th this year, so a new accommodate or HD anchorage of Tomb Brigand Ceremony seems plausible. But Chrono Cantankerous Remaster, Approach Bogey Remaster and Final Fantasy 9 Accommodate are all abundantly tantalizing. It's antic FFT wasn't on PC years ago, and Approach Bogey would be the blooming on top. The absurd 2010 remake never alike got a adaptable anchorage the way FFT did, which agency it's been ashore on the PlayStation Carriageable for a decade.
Chrono Cantankerous actually deserves the aforementioned analysis as Aboveboard Enix's added "HD" ports of its PlayStation games—well, bigger treatment, really, because as we've apparent with AI upscaling, Square's official releases can absolutely be bigger on. Final Fantasy 9 is the one abutting to my affection and the one I would've affected had no adventitious in hell of happening, except that Aboveboard Enix is also, acutely randomly, developing a FF9 activated series. Maybe the best Final Fantasy absolutely is accepting a ground-up remake.
Oh, and Commonwealth Hearts 4? Sure, we'll see that in a decade or two.
- Bioshock 2022
- BioShock RTX Remaster
- XCOM 3
There's no GTA 6 on the list, but the BioShocks are interesting. We've accepted about an upcoming BioShock for absolutely some time, but the RTX remaster is new. Booty Two appear the flat alive on the abutting BioShock in backward 2019, which does accomplish 2022 complete like an optimistic target. My assumption is it doesn't access until at atomic 2023.
As for XCOM 3, is that absolutely Midnight Suns, or is it a able sequel? If the latter, hopefully it wasn't canceled to accomplish allowance for Midnight Suns instead.
- Endless Fable 2
- Judgment ✅
- Shin Megami Tensei 5
- Total War 9 ✅
No abruptness that addition mainline Absolute War is coming, and Amaranthine Fable 2 seems possible, admitting it may accept been scrapped in favor of Amplitude's Humankind. The absolute items of absorption actuality are Judgment, the Yakuza spin-off, and Shin Megami Tensei 5. With Persona 4 on PC, it feels like a amount of when, not if, the blow of Atlus's RPGs accomplish it over. It's a bit black not to see Persona 5 or any added Atlus amateur on here, though.
- Mirror's Bend RTX Remaster
- Untitled Respawn Game
We apperceive Respawn is alive on a new bold or two, and a ray traced adaptation of Mirror's Edge? Sure, why not.
- Batman: Arkham Charlatan RTX Remaster
- Injustice 3: Gods Will Fall
- Mortal Kombat XII ✅
Arkham Charlatan had an infamously burst barrage on PC, but it was a admiration back it worked. Acceptable ray archetype candidate. And both of these angry amateur from Nether Branch assume likely—the catechism is added which one is in development appropriate now.
- Dragon's Article 2 ✅
- Monster Hunter 6
- Resident Angry 4 Accommodate ✅
- Street Fighter 6 ✅
These were already called in Capcom's massive abstracts aperture aftermost year, but I aloof capital an alibi to address DRAGON'S ARTICLE 2 in all-caps.
- Gears 6
- Halo 5: Guardians
There are additionally a accomplished lot of bold codenames, but Apparatus 6 feels like abutting to absolute acceptance that the abutting Apparatus bold is on the way. Not absolutely a shocker. Meanwhile, 343 Industries has stated already again that nothing's accident with Aura 5 on PC appropriate now.
- Tekken 8 ✅
- Metal Accessory Solid 2 HD ✅
- Metal Accessory Solid 3 HD ✅
VGC appear in October that Konami's planning big comebacks for Metal Accessory and Castlevania, and remasters of MGS2/3 are allotment of that plan. This seems acceptable and it'd be abundant to assuredly accept MGS3 on PC.
- Warhammer 40,0000: Amplitude Abyssal 2 ✅
- Cities Skylines 2 ✅
- Crash Aggregation Antagonism Nitro-Fueled
- Crysis 4 ✅
- Earth Aegis Force 6
- Metro "Next"
- The Talos Assumption 2
- Timesplitters 2 (Remastered)
- Titan Adventure 2 (working title)
- Wreckfest sequel
