Far Cry 6 is Ubisoft's next installment in the popular Far Cry series. There isn't much that we know about it yet, except that it is set in a fictional country called Yara. Seeing how expansive Ubisoft's recent Assassin's Creed games were, fans could expect Far Cry 6 to receive a similar treatment as well. Nevertheless, fans can assume that the game will feature a vast open-world, a plethora of guns, and probably a gripping story.

God of War Ragnarok

God of War 2018 was an amazing game that went ahead to win the GOTY award. The game showcased the protagonist Kratos in a new light where he plays as a father and teaches his son survival skills. Towards the end of the game, it is revealed that Kratos' son is Loki. This left the story at an incredible cliffhanger. Now, fans are excited to see where Santa Monica Studios will take the story of Kratos going forward in God of War Ragnarok.

Gotham Knights is Warner Bros' upcoming game. It is set after the events that transpired in Batman Arkham Knight. While the game will not feature the caped crusader himself, the Batfamily will fill his shoes. The game will focus on Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood. The game is said to feature an open-world environment just like other Arkham games. However, the game itself isn't set in the Arkham Universe. So, it'll be interesting to see what WB Games has done with the new game.
