It’s no surprise that the future of games is set to be dominated by sequels. It’s been this way for the past few decades, and it’s unlikely that this questionable trend will end any time soon. Some particularly prominent franchises are already marking double figures, and far too many established intellectual properties sport one too many spin-off titles for their own good.
History tends to repeat itself of course and, whilst I’m sure developers will be pushing for innovative new IPs in the next generation of home consoles, I have no doubt that this library of fresh ideas will be joined by plenty of sequels. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing though, as plenty of our favourite games have only come from the honing process of sequel after sequel. With that in mind, here are ten of our bets on what sequels will be showing up in the coming years.

It's likely we'll have more RE action on Xbox 720 and PS4, though long-time fans who were burned by the shaky quality of number 6 may question whether this is a good thing or not. Let's just give Capcom a chance to recover their lost credibility, shall we?
