We recently asked you, dear Kotaku readers, what your most anticipated games of 2024 might be. The list y’all presented mirrors some of the titles I’m stoked about, but you also shared a bunch of games that weren’t yet on my radar. Thank you for that. Most of all, there appears to be one game we all—myself included—can’t wait to get our hands on, and it’s a sequel.
Hollow Knight: Silksong, where you at? The follow-up to developer Team Cherry’s excellent 2017 Metroidvania has been MIA since its first reveal in February 2019. A June 2022 trailer showed some new combat and traversal mechanics—that video lives rent-free in my mind to this day—but the last thing we heard about the game was Team Cherry delaying it because Silksong’s “gotten quite big.” Take your time with the game, TeCher, but my appetite for Silksong is quite big, too.

That’s not the only sequel Kotaku readers are antsy about. While Silksong dominated quite a few of the comments, some of the other games folks are looking forward to include Dragon’s Dogma 2, Hyper Light Breaker, Little Nightmares 3, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2. I guess you could say 2024 is looking to be another year of sequels.
Anyway, here are y’all’s most anticipated games for next year.
