Default Does Anyone know of any interesting PS2 games coming up?

I was just wondering if anyone knows of any PS2 or Gamecube games that are going to be made. I'm a real fan of adventure games, however the console market is not historically very good!
I know that Prophesy is due out in September but that is about it!

Well, Dreamfall is coming out for Xbox late this year. And although many of us here may not consider it an adventure (it's technically more of an action/adventure), Shadow Of The Colossus is also due out later this year for PS2.

Well broken sword 3, and escape from monkey island were released for the PS2 I think. Also on the XBOX, you can play Still Life, Syberia, Syberia 2, Myst IV. I think you can find the original Broken sword on the playstation as well.

Shadow of Destiny/Memories is on PS2. If you can find it, there's also Echo Night: Beyond, a sci-fi horror/supernatural themed first person adventure.

All three Discworld games are on PlayStation and little known Blazing Dragons. There's a Broken Sword on GBA as well.

This game looks very promising, but what happened to the sequel to ICO?
I am pretty sure I saw something about this game being in production?

Excellent I'll look for them too! I think that some of them have not hit the UK yet though!

Thanks

I don't know if action is a no no, but take a look at Ico, Clock Tower 3, Fatal Frame 1/2, Eternal Darkness(GC only), Silent Hill 2/3/4, or the Resident Evil games. Also, there's a new game called Obscure, although I don't know if it's going to be on GC or PS2. It's already out on PC and is $20. Decent action adventure in the tradition of Resident Evil.

There are other games like this, but those and all those I listed might fall outside of what you're looking for.

What is Prophecy? Is this a console version of the old Sierra game Ween: The Prophecy?

In North America it'll be released as Indigo Prophecy, in Europe, Fahrenheit.

Oh good, I've always thought Fahrenheit was a much better title.

Manhunter: I believe Shadow of the Colossus is the sequel to ICO. Although it's more of a spiritual successor apparently.

Sounds interesting! I think that a Broken Sword 4 is in the very preliminary stages, but as for Monkey Island all I hear is rumours and Discworld NOTHING!!

Its a real shame because I think that these games are good fun that anyone can enjoy! There are too many kids playing games like GTA nowadays!

Escape of Monkey Island didn't sell that well and with LucasArts canning Sam and Max I doubt a new Monkey Island game will happen any time soon. The developers behind the Discworld games died a long time ago so unless another company buys the license (aside from the mobile game in development) that doesn't seem too likely either

Has this game actually been released yet?
I haven't seen it in any stores in the UK but on the official website the release date is 2004??
