November 2011 of Xbox World magazine suggests multiple new titles

An article published in the November 2011 issue of Xbox World magazine suggests the existence of three new games for the Xbox 360 at some point in the near future. According to Sille Gamer, the article speaks of three games: Army of Two 3, Forza World, and Resident Evil 6. While the third game mentioned is hardly surprising, a third Army of Two title would be unexpected. Xbox World is a magazine operated by the same company who operate CVG.

Little information is currently available about Army of Two 3, as the name currently appears to be. It is probable that the name would be given a subtitle, as was the case with Army of Two: The 40th Day. How a third game would fit into the story is unclear at present due to the multiple endings available in The 40th Day. If the article is to be believed, the game is in development with Visceral Montreal. Visceral’s previous credits have included the two Godfather games, all the Dead Space titles, and Dante’s Inferno. Unconfirmed reports online suggest that Visceral could also be working on an unnamed title in the Command & Conquer franchise, set for release in 2012.

Forza World is meant to be an “open-world racing simulator”. What this would be is currently unclear, but it may be something similar to Need for Speed World. The game is currently in development by Playground Games, assuming the article is correct. Playground Games is a UK-based company headed by Gavin Raeburn and was previously an executive producer with Codemasters, and was responsible for work on the DiRT franchise as well as Race Driver: GRID.

Resident Evil 6 would hardly be a surprise due to the repeated success of the survival horror franchise. Despite some complaints that Resident Evil 5 was more of an action game, a sixth numbered release could happen. The article suggests that an unveiling would occur at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show. The teaser gave the date of “September 15th”, which coincides with the start of TGS2011. Considering the company’s previous track record, it could still be years off an actual release. Resident Evil 5 was revealed four years before it actually released so history could easily repeat itself.
