Atlus is having a great year, to say the least. The creators of Megaten have already released Persona 3 Reload to great success and are all set to launch two more games in 2024. However, many people are wondering about one question. Where is the sixth mainline Persona game?

Atlus already has planned a showcase for its upcoming title Metaphor: ReFantazio, but it will be a huge surprise if the studio comes out and announces the much anticipated Persona 6 during the Xbox Games Showcase 2024.

The Gears of War franchise has been a prominent part of many childhoods and one of the core Xbox exclusives. People still fondly remember the first Gears game, which started one of the most iconic trilogy in gaming. The series has seemingly halted after the fifth installment was released in 2019.

The franchise might return from its slumber and people can once again load the Lancer Assault Rifle and join the COGs in their battle if Microsoft announces the sixth Gears game during the Xbox Games Showcase.


3) Doom: The Dark Ages

Among these questions, a set of new rumors appeared. A new Doom game, titled The Dark Ages, might be unveiled at the Xbox Games Showcase 2024. This will certainly come as a massive surprise as it will finally share a glimpse of what lies on the road ahead for the franchise.

2000s Perfect Dark is one of the most iconic titles from the Nintendo 64 era of games. You play as a covert operative, Agent Johanna Dark, and embark on a journey to stop the conspiracy of the DataDyne Corporation in a dystopian futuristic backdrop.

A new game in the series with the same name was announced back in 2020, but the developers have been quiet since then. It will certainly be surprising if the Xbox Games Showcase 2024 finally reveals more information regarding the upcoming Perfect Dark game.
