Anyone in the PC gaming community will agree that 2007 was a particularly good year, as it brought a plethora of quality titles like BioShock, Call of Duty 4, Company of Heroes, Crysis, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Hellgate: London, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., The Orange Box, Unreal Tournament 3, and World in Conflict. But what about next year? Will 2008 be a letdown for PC gamers, or will it also bring a stream of good games?
To find out, Shacknews has put together an article that catalogs pretty much every major PC title we can expect to hit stores next year (and some that may arrive later). The Shack starts off with Fallout 3, Bethesda's hotly anticipated continuation of the Fallout series in first-person form, as well as Alan Wake, an upcoming "action thriller" title from the studio behind the Max Payne series. There's also mention of StarCraft 2, although Blizzard has yet to announce an official release schedule, and the real-time strategy opus may not show up in 2008 at all. The same applies to id Software's first-person shooter Rage, with the Shack pointing out, "we can always keep the hope alive, right?"
While waiting for StarCraft 2 and Rage, folks will be able to keep themselves entertained with Maxis' oft-delayed life simulator Spore, as well as Far Cry 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Left 4 Dead, and Alone in the Dark—all of which are expected in 2008. That cross-section of games may not be as impressive as this year's release list, but it's still sure to keep PC gamers happy.
