We Will Haz Half-Life 3, Grand Theft Auto V and Alan Wake 2
Sequels can be a developer’s way of sidestepping the challenge of a new IP, and when done wrong can really take down a franchise in a hurry. (See virtually every Sonic the Hedgehog after the third one.) Still, there are a notable few who not only deserve a sequel, but demand one. Half-Life, Grand Theft Auto and Alan Wake are just some of the recent franchises have yet to take the plunge (at least officially) for another iteration. Take heart: 2011 will be the year that the wraps will be taken off their sequels, making the end of the year into 2012 a busy one for your console.
