Earlier this month, we took a gander at the most anticipated horror games of 2014. We laughed, we cried, we reminisced about what’s shaping up to be a fantastic year to be a horror fan. Almost all of them are practically guaranteed to arrive before the next New Year comes along, and they’re all fine reasons to be excited 2014′s offering of horror games. Keep in mind, it’s only January, so we still have several months worth of still-secret projects left to look forward to hearing from.

I’m already plenty excited for 2014, but as we look to the future, I can’t help but wonder about the games we’ll see in 2015. Read on for my list of eight horror games we (probably) won’t see until 2015!

SOMA

I figured we’d go ahead and get the two games on this list that we already know aren’t arriving until 2015 out of the way first. Let’s start with “SOMA”, a mind-bending sci-fi horror game from Frictional Games, the makers of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It’s being made with the intention of “chilling you to your core,” and seeing as it’s being crafted by the team that brought us one of the scariest games of all time, if any studio can accomplish that, it’s Frictional.

Kodoku

When I look at nightmarish horror game “Kodoku”, the primal part of my brain wants to fear it, to run away from the things I’m seeing, because they just aren’t right. With that said, this game looks terrifying, and amazing, but mostly terrifying. It also has a fantastic Japanese style aesthetic to it that draws me in, not unlike a Siren’s call, probably so it can do unmentionable things to me as soon as I’m within grabbing distance.

I think I’m all right with that.

Doom 4

We know it’s coming, and we even know why it’s taking so long, but all that knowledge isn’t making this wait any less painful. There are few franchises that have has as much influence on this industry as “Doom”, and I think I speak for everyone when I say this game cannot come soon enough.

Class 4

Undead Labs has been teasing us with “Class 4″ since long before “State of Decay” even released. They’re describing it as a (now Xbox exclusive) zombie survival MMO that expands on the world, mechanics, and gameplay of their fantastic XBLA game. “State of Decay” set the stage, creating a foundation for something far more ambitious, and its follow-up promises to take it all to the next level, starting with the much-requested addition of co-op.

    There is no indication that Silent Hill and Resident Evil 7 will come out next year. I’m guessing they come out before 2015.

      You really think we’ll see Resident Evil 7 and/or a new Silent Hill this year? I wish I shared your optimism.

  • Taboo

    Doom 5? Fuck yes!

  • Seal_Clubber

    How about a new Alan Wake or Cold Fear ?

    • Adam Dodd

      Cold Fear won’t happen, and unfortunately, Remedy has already confirmed that Alan Wake won’t see a sequel for a while (they’re focused on Quantum Break right now).

        Damn …

    So is every game listed an actual announced game?!?

    I don’t remember hearing anything but I guess I can just check. I would only assume they would put working titles up, not “fantasy” games.

    Last time I saw a list like this, it had Battlefront 3, and Star War 1313 on it…..Assuming a game comes out isn’t a good idea, no matter how far in development it is.

    For me Doom 4 is about the only horror game right now that I am wanting to get my hands on. Never was a fan of the RE games. They were good but I like the first person perspective.

  • SnakeEater345

    Now look, Doom 4 was said by Id software that it will be done when it’s done. We just have to be patient until it is announced, but it will be out soon. But WHERE IN THE WORLD IS RESDIENT EVIL 7!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    I’m surprised we haven’t seen an Action RPG Horror game in the Style of Mass Effect or similar game. They have FPS horror games, thats a staple, but they always end up being linear stories. Silent Hill used to be great near open world with great options and (bizarre) alternate endings (UFO ending in 1 anyone?).
