Research firm Nielsen has released their most wanted games for Holiday 2017 and this list includes games for multiplatform, PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The games that are considered for this list include those which are releasing between October 1st till the end of the year so even though Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and The Evil Within 2 are all releasing this period, they were unfortunately not as anticipated as the other top games in the list.
The top 3 for multiplatform games is dominated by Call of Duty: World War 2, Assassin’s Creed Origins and Star Wars Battlefront 2. As for the platform exlcusives, Gran Turismo Sport for PS4, Forza Motorsport 7 for Xbox One and Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Swith have managed to get the most anticipation among the fans.
The listed games aren’t really a surprise here since they were easily the most anticipated although judging from teh popularity of Mario, it is easy to imagine why most of the 3DS games have ended up being the most anticipated on the platform.
Forza Motorsport 7, Gran Tursimo Sport, Super Mario Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Origins will be released this month. Call of Duty: World War 2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2 will release in Novemeber. Some of the other major releases in October include South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Fire Emblem Warriors.
