With the upcoming Hogwarts Legacy game, and the recent controversy over the GTA 6 leaks, gamers are excited about getting sequels in two of the most beloved series of all-time.

However, these are not the only series - which we poured thousands of worthwhile hours into during youth - that are getting titles added to them.

We've compiled a list of five more games which are are currently in development, that will surely bring waves of nostalgia to those who experienced their predecessors many years ago.

Sims 5

The early Sims games were groundbreaking, both in terms of their gameplay and the amount of units they shipped, appealing to gamers of all ilks.

Days were poured into creating the perfect lives for our characters, or putting them in absurd situations, accompanied by a delightful soundtrack.

The last one in series was Sim 4, released in 2014, and while it had a rocky beginning, it has enjoyed longevity with its add-on packs and updates.

The working title for the new game is Project Rene, and it will be at least a couple of years until its release, meaning by the time it does hit the shelves, fans will be gagging for a first new title in a decade.



Mafia 4

Following the success of the recent remake of the legendary first Mafia game (the original came out in 2002). The Hangar 13 game developers have decided that there is enough interest for a sequel to 2016's Mafia III.


Like Sims 5, it is still in the early stages of development, but that will give newcomers to the series time to catch up with the first three games, which available on next-gen consoles.

EarlyGame have also reported that it is being made with Unreal Engine 5, and could be set in Sicily, with the story being a prequel to the Mafia I.


S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl was released in 2007, and became somewhat of a cult-classic, with further games added in 2008 and 2009.

The story is based on the science-fiction novel Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, and is also influenced by the Andrei Tarkovsky film, called Stalker.

Thankfully the upcoming game has a release date in 2023 and a gameplay trailer which you can view below.



Alan Wake 2

Released in 2010 to critical acclaim, Alan Wake follows the story of a thriller novelist trying to solve the mystery of his wife's disappearance in the fictional town of Bright Falls.

The game was unique in that it followed an episodic structure, and based itself on the form of a television thriller series.


The developers Remedy are confident of a 2023 release date and have said that, "there is still a lot of work to be done, but the game is coming together on all fronts. User testing continues and the feedback from the user research has been encouraging,"
