Unfortunately, sales figures were unable to mirror the game’s acclaim and it was overshadowed & Defeated by larger IPs.
The sheer volume of huge RPG franchises is owned by Square Enix. With Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, and Dragon Quest to name just a few, the incentive to work on a sequel like Vagrant Story rather than cranking out a new Final Fantasy title likely just isn’t there.
2.The Simpsons: Hit & Run
The Simpsons: Hit & Run was developed by Radical Entertainment and was the sequel to the hugely popular Road Rage. Inspired by the Grand Theft Auto series, the titles allow fans to cause mischief as they drive their way around an Open World.
Combining elements from both the most popular animated show and the most popular video game series of that time was always going to lead to a successful product.
A sequel to Hit & Run was actually in Planned at one stage. But the project was canceled after EA Games obtained the exclusive rights to produce Simpsons video games in 2005. EA did release a number of games but none of them were able to come close to matching the excellence delivered by Radical’s earlier Simpsons titles.
The team at Rockstar doesn’t publish a lot of games But When they do though, they’re usually gamers favorite – and the 2006 title Bully is no exception. Unfortunately, it’s a title that the developer has failed to revisit in spite of the game’s critical and commercial all-time success.
When creating a Bully, Rockstar Games played around with a lot of amazing ideas and the result was an experience unlike any other. Most importantly perhaps, it showed gamers that there was more to Rockstar than just Grand Theft Auto.
Dragon’s Dogma didn’t sell or review particularly well when it released back in 2012. That hasn’t stopped it from garnering a strong fanbase though. anyways those fans have themselves extended the lifespan of the game through the creation of mods, what they really wanted is a sequel.

6.Escape From Monkey Island
The games combined humor and puzzle-solving to create some of the best adventure games ever made. Unfortunately with the license to the series currently in the hands of Disney, it doesn’t seem that fans will be getting a new Monkey Island game any time in the future.

The Sequel to Chrono’s story is something that fans have been longing for quite some time now. It’s one of the best RPGs ever made and deserves the opportunity to captivate a new generation. As with other titles from Square’s past, but it is difficult to see the developer opting to revitalize an older franchise when there are so many active and successful series for them to work on.

Along with games like Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time, they helped to set the standard for the genre. After the release of the second game in the series then, a Banjo Three seemed somewhat inevitable,
With Rare currently owned by Microsoft and many of the original development team has left the company, a third Banjo game doesn’t seem too likely now. Thankfully the fans have the series’ spiritual successor Yooka-Laylee to fill up the vibe.
9.Silent Hill: Downpour
If one were to ask gamers to name a company that neglects its franchises Then Konami Will Be Best Answer & Many of the best video game IPs from the last few decades have been left to rot. Despite this, fans of the Silent Hill series haven’t given up hope.

a final game never saw the light of day. Rumors of a new Silent Hill title have been popping up fairly regularly, but as of the moment, there has been no official confirmation that a new title is in development.
10. Half-Life 2: Episode 2
Valve created some of the industry’s best games. The Half-Life series is seen by many as being their greatest achievement of all time.
