The open world and sandbox genres used to be hallowed beasts, those technical marvels that were so infrequent on consoles of generations past. Nowadays though, open world/sandbox games are a regular staple of our gaming lives, with series like GTA, Assassin’s Creed and Minecraft forever popularising these non-linear styles of gameplay. The open world genre, despite reaching new heights of excellence each year, has yet to reach its true pinnacle. With that in mind, here are ten open world games you should be looking forward to next year that may well hit the zennith of the genre.

1. Remember Me
The videos we have seen of breakthrough IP Remember Me have hinted that the game will have mild open world elements. It's a good thing too as, outside of the cool memory alteration bits, the cyberpunk locales are one of the most exciting elements of Remember Me. The Gamescom trailer also featured stealth elements, a cool spin on things that we can only hope won't get in the way of the exploration. Still, Remember Me looks set to be a stellar entry into next year's catalogue.
