While there are only 15 games on our most anticipated list for 2015, there are HUNDREDS coming out in the next year – so many that it’s almost certain we’ll see dozens more that we don’t even know about yet. I’m willing to guarantee that at least half of our top ten list in 12 months will include games we don’t even know are coming out yet.
The Top 15 List
What made the list? Chris and Anthony took some time and reviewed the top games on our radar right now. A lot of these games are already announced and have a rough release window, but some of them don’t yet.
There were a handful of games that didn’t make the cut either – games that are going to be on Kickstarter soon (like Between Two Cities which Kickstarts next month) or that have been announced with very little additional information (like Pandemic Legacy). These are highly anticipated as well, but if we weren’t reasonably sure a game would hit our table in 2015, we held it back for now.
That’s not to say they won’t make it onto our Acquisition Disorder segment in the near future when we know more details.
