As it currently stands one of the biggest games that is expected to appear in America during the Spring of 2020 is Phantasy Star Online 2 which was announced at E3 2019. Phantasy Star Online 2 is a MMORPG that has been around since 2012 when it first appeared in Japan on PC and has been ported to various game consoles ever since then. Throughout most of the 10’s decade we have seen Phantasy Star Online 2 appear on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch but only in Japan. As far as popularity is concerned in relation to video game genres it’s no secret that first/third person shooter games along with action-adventure and RPG titles are huge attractions in western consoles like the United States. There were various games announced at E3 2019 that people are looking forward to seeing during the second-half 2019 such as Contra: Rouge Corps, Watch Dogs: Legion and Luigi’s Mansion 3 that are titles that many people will definitely have their eye on. There are also big games in 2020 such as Cyberpunk 2077 and Dying Light 2 that could possibly overshadowed Phantasy Star Online 2 which is actually considered to be somewhat old considering the fact that the game came out approximately seven years ago.
Also, Phantasy Star Online 2 is only expected to appear for the Xbox One and Microsoft Windows in 2020 which is something that could definitely effect the overall sales of the game itself. Even though, the Phantasy Star series has been around since the late 80’s and has been one of the best things that Sega has going in relation to RPG/MMORPG’s it’s not quite as popular during the 90’s. In fact, MMORPG’s has arguably declined somewhat in popularity since the early 10’s when titles such as Guild Wars 2, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Neverwinter and Rift were attractions on PC. While its cool that Phantasy Star Online 2 will finally appear in America during 2020 its hard to predict how successful it will eventually become following its upcoming release.
