Michael Pachter believed that the companies actually saved some new intellectual properties for the wave of consoles. He used “Destiny,” “TitanFall” and “Watch Dogs” as examples of new franchises that are launching into the next-generation. Finally, the analyst stated that the new intellectual properties that sell well will be getting a lot of sequels based on previous patterns from publishers. You can find some screenshots from all three aforementioned titles in the slideshow to the left of this article and his comments on the subject below:

I think that each of the publishers who are still around saved up new IP for this generation. You got the ‘Watch Dogs,’ you got the ‘Destiny,’ you got the ‘TitanFall’ that are launching. They’re not next-gen console exclusive but they’re launching into next-gen. I think that the creative people haven’t stop coming up with great ideas. So I actually think that the next three or four years you will actually see a lot of next IP. Then the ones that worked are going to get sequel to death. That’s just the pattern that works.

“TitanFall” is the first of the three upcoming titles to be released with a launch date set for March 11 on the PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. “Destiny” is expected to come out in the second quarter of next year for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Finally, “Watch Dogs” is also set to arrive after the month of March in 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The publishers for all three titles have already hinted at potential sequels to the new franchises in one form or another.
