Elden Ring, Metal Gear Remake, And Final Fantasy 16: Our Hopes For 2021

With 2021 upon us, the Generation Next gang discuss the games they’re looking forward to playing on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 next year.

Both Xbox Series X|S and PS5 will have been out in the wild for a few months by the time 2021 kicks off, so we’re sure to start seeing more and more announcements for games exclusively releasing for the new console generation. Lucy, Tamoor, and Jordan are already looking forward to the year, especially for the release of the sequel to 2018’s God of War as well as the possibility of hearing about more Elden Ring and Hollow Knight: Silksong. 

But let’s dream big, yeah? It worked for Tamoor in his prediction that Demon’s Souls would launch alongside PS5. The trio talk through their “it probably won’t happen but like, what if it did” predictions for 2021, including Anthem 2.0 being surprisingly good and Bluepoint releasing a remake of the original Metal Gear Solid. 

And with that, Generation Next–GameSpot’s weekly show dedicated to discussing everything and anything about Xbox Series X|S and PS5–comes to a close. Y’all have been a great audience, and we’ll see you in the new year with more original content. Generation Next may not return, but that doesn’t preclude the possibility of something else taking its place. Stay tuned!
