The original Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice became a breakout hit in 2017, with critics and fans alike praising the uncompromising gameplay and its exploration of psychosis. It was only a matter of time before a sequel was greenlit, and it was announced two years later.

This time around, Senua is tasked with surviving in Iceland during the Viking era, once again battling forces both external and internal. Ninja Theory have remained fairly tight-lipped on Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, but it’s sure to push the Xbox Series X|S and PCs to the limit with its impressive visuals and sound design.

Playing as criminal Kay Vess between the events of Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, fans will visit Tatooine, Akiva, and plenty of new planets as they attempt to pull off a major heist, all while avoiding the clutches of The Empire.

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle (TBC)

It’s been many years since Indy fans had a top-tier video game not built in Lego, but that could all change in 2024. Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is in the works at Bethesda, helmed by the same team that brought you modern Wolfenstein games like The New Order and The New Colossus.

This original story follows everyone’s favorite archeologist between the original movie and the Last Crusade, as he embarks on a globe-hopping adventure in pursuit of a stolen artifact. The titular character will use the likeness of actor Harrison Ford but will be voiced by none other than Troy Baker.

Those were the biggest AAA games coming in 2024. We’ll be updating this list throughout the year with any new titles that are announced, so be sure to check back here for the latest upcoming projects.
