The year of 2020 will be a year intended to increase the level of game releases. Some of these are more anticipated than others, like Cyberpunk 2077, featuring Keanu Reeves, but all are very intriguing.
Some of the games will be inspired by classic games from another generation, as is the case with the remakes of Final Fantasy 7 and Resident Evil 3. However, it is necessary to remember that there were already remake games released in 2019 but weren’t well perceived by the audience. The Last of Us Part 2 and Animal Crossing: New Horizons are some of the most expected sequels.
With the arrival of new consoles at the end of the year, the closing moment of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One should accompany the most impressive games of the last generation. This is the case of Halo Infinite, which makes a bridge between consoles, with versions for both Xbox One and for the future Xbox Series X.
