@Dezzy yeah I agree with you. It's just that I would be fine with a kingdom or two in the form of dlc, even though I would prefer odyssey 2 and I also think that it is more likely.

@Grumblevolcano Even then, would they really take up 3 world premieres at The Game Awards? We all know Smash DLC is getting announced there.

If I were to rank the likelihood of announcements at TGAs, it would go

1. Smash DLC
2. BOTW 2
3. Bayonetta 3
4. Metroid Prime Trilogy
5. Whatever EAD Tokyo has in store.

Currently Playing: Steamworld Heist, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Tales of Graces F

@IceClimbers Well we got 3 in 2017 (BotW Champion's Ballad, Bayonetta 1+2, Bayonetta 3) and 2018 could've been 3 or 4 if Prime 4 wasn't restarted, so maybe. That said even with the September Direct, Switch's lineup is rather barren after Pokemon Sword/Shield so maybe Nintendo does a November Direct around the time Terry Bogard is released and announces DLC fighter 5 there.

@Grumblevolcano That was 3 announcements in 2 world premieres since the Bayonetta news was together though.

I think the two Doom games, Assassin's Creed, and Dauntless are enough to wrap up the year. Wouldn't be surprised if DMC3 got released before the end of the year either.

A November Direct could certainly happen, but I definitely don't expect it.

If I had any real problem with this Direct, its that way too many game companies (Nintendo included) feel the need to put so many games out in the last few months of the year. Like some of these games would almost certainly do better if released around like February instead of having to compete with Pokemon and Luigi's Mansion and Link's Awakening and Witcher and Overwatch and Spyro etc etc.

@kkslider5552000 I'm with you on that. Why the big end of the year push by everyone? It's like the 3 stooges all trying to cram thru the same door. On the flip side, it just means theres really something for everyone this part of the year. No one should feel disappointed.

@IceClimbers Yeah, I think a November Direct could happen but it not happening wouldn't be surprising either. With the insanity moving into October and November rather than just being an August 30 to September 27 thing, I'm not sure whether the insane lineup is caused by the Switch Lite or there's plenty happening in early 2020 that's unknown and an insane late August to mid-November is better than an insane January to March for example.

From what we know so far, a fair number of these games would probably do better in early 2020 than the holidays.

I doubt there will be another direct until the games awards as they want to keep the big reveals until then. I do think there will be a pokemon direct as Gamefreak are having a 30th anniversary video next month which might be included in that.

I'm sure there will be Pokemon Direct before 15 November 2019. I think it will be on October 2019 or early November 2019. Probably the agenda will be revealing the evolution of starter Pokemons.

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (100)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

Oof, no SMT V in this direct either. Atlus announced it way too early.

So when do we think the next Direct Will be? We just had a Indie Direct and no real annoncements at TGA so we should see one very early january right? the 2020 Line-up is looking Pretty sparse at the moment..

Well, they could do some reveals on Social media to keep us going, @Ninja84.... But I think a January direct is likely, though I'll say nearer the end of the month
It all depends on how games are coming along & info from various third parties, as well as the known Nintendo own stuff

This is what happens when Nintendo doesn't show up when they were supposed to show up. Nintendo fans forced to beg for a direct.

Third party support could also be going down because the focus will be on developing for the New platforms coming holiday season next year. I’m still Hoping for a strong year but beginning to have my doubts.

The number of AAA ports from western devs will definitely decrease from now on. But they'll still get quite a lot of third party exclusives, especially from Japan-focused devs.
Companies like Square Enix probably regard the Switch as one of their main sources of revenue at this point.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@Ninja84 @Dezzy Probably not quite yet. Don't forget, if history is anything to go by a lot of major devs are just now getting dev kits for PS5/XBSX, or still won't for another 3-6 months. Games take years to make, which is why the first year or two are always relatively barren. Nintendo bucked the trend by getting kits out earlier than usual, and the first year was still empty compared to subsequent years. Not to mention that last gen ports on Switch are still going to generate better profit margins than titles on systems with a tiny install base for some time. I'd wager we'll see support really start to go down come late 2021, around when the Switch is turning 5. But if ports are still selling well enough, we might just see companies continue them, since it's easy money.

Plus, It's not like there's not plenty on the table, Ubi has a ton of old AC/Splinter Cell, there're the Arkham titles from WB. Bethesda has Fallout and Dishonored, vs. Capcom and Dead Rising from Capcom, Panzer Dragoon, Super Monkey Ball, Shenmue and Yakuza from Sega, etc.
