If they were behind KoToR, hell, we'd see KoToR 5 already.
I can't care less for Watch Dogs, but FC3 and the silly spin-off were something that'll make me buy FC4 for sure. HoMM6 was fun, I'll buy HoMM7 too no matter the sad story behind it. And if JDR blesses AC3, hell, I could try that one too. If mobs don't respawn ofc.
But is it really good? I don't see how thousands of Nancy Drew games are positive for the adventure genre. Don't we need more variety?
