The action video game will be available on Xbox One, Microsoft Windows and PS4, and it is 3rd in The Witcher series, following The Witcher & The Witcher Two: Assassins of Kings, based on the fantasy novels of Andrzej Sapkowski, A Polish author.
Upcoming action-adventure single-player video game, The Order: 1886 will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment and developed by Ready at Dawn. It will be launched as a PS4 exclusive and apparently the developers postponed its launch for February 20, 2015. After a failed attempt of Sony to show off the game and claim it will be available by the end of the year, they admitted The Order won’t come out this 2014.
Although the developers of Quantum Break never mentioned the game will come out this year, everyone expected to see it by the end of 2014. This Xbox One exclusive is a mixed video game with third-person action ad time-blending powers, plus a live TV show. Developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios, Quantum Break already has a teaser trailer revealed at an Xbox One event in May, 2013. Apparently, there’s also a TV series in production, so it’s safe to assume the video game will be a success.
Survivor horror video game, Dying Light, was developed by Techland and it will be available on PS4, PS3, Microsoft Windows, and Xbox 360. The zombie-apocalypse game set features a parkour-inspired open-world, and it was delayed for February 2015 because the makers want to improve the free-run mechanics of the game. As far as the gameplay is concerned, the players will have to traverse an open urban environment infested by vicious zombies crafting weapons and scattering the world for supplies.
Tom Clancy’s The Division
Announced in 2013, at an Ubisoft E3 conference, it was expected for the developers to postpone the release of Tom Clancy’s The Division. After insisting on the fact that the game will come out by the end of 2014, Ubisoft finally reported that it will delay; they didn’t provide any explanations though. The Division will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and Microsoft Windows, and it will be centered on a group (The Strategic Homeland Division) who will be in charge of saving the world from a vicious outbreak.
Now that we know which games have been delayed for 2015, we can only hope they’ll rock when they come out. Most developers claim that February 2015 will be a month packed with incredible releases, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
