Oddly enough I haven't heard a lot about upcoming games of interest lately. Be neat to hear what people are watching.
For myself the main things on the horizon are:

What upcoming games do you have your eye on? :)

Battlefield 4 so I can play with friends. First I just have to upgrade my video card and motherboard since I kind of fucked up the socket pins and ruined three of my RAM slots :p

I have a really weak, cheapskate PC so it's not like I'll be able to play the most amazing new games, but I have been waiting to see if people in other parts of the globe will be able to play Inazuma Eleven Online, which is based on a football/soccer anime that I'm a fan of (refer to avatar for Inazuma Eleven fanboy handshake)...

I'm waiting for Star Citizen. I liked the Wing Commander games, mostly III and IV and consequently bought one of the Star Citizen copies on Kickstarter.
No Man's Sky looks interesting as well though. Not as polished as Star Citizen, but anything with a transition between space/atmospheric/ground gameplay sounds interesting.
Other games on my list are: -Walking Dead Season 2: the first part was a pretty good adventure -The Witcher 3: really liked the second part, now they seem to be hopping on the open world train, which seems like a good idea. -Wasteland and Planescape: old-school RPGs with turn-based combat and graphics that won't burn holes into your eyes.

I saw No Man's Sky posted shortly after its debut on the VGX awards- it looks pretty cool. They're working with a pretty small team, so I hope it works well. Might show a good use of procedural generation as well. At worst it could be a great time killer. Hopefully it doesn't end up like Universal Combat. I haven't heard of that Satellite Reign one though, that looks interesting.
I've also been following Star Citizen, mainly because I liked Freelancer, so much that I shelled out some money on its kickstarter to get a copy when it's finished (admittedly the lowest one that guarantees the copy). I hope they do good with that one- it's amazing how much they've raised (over $34 million now!), plus all those fans buying ships!
I think some of their fans are putting too much into the game and Chris Roberts might be overselling it, but his previous releases have been pretty solid so I'm confident it'll be fun. I think it'll have a smoother release than X Rebirth at least.
Witcher 3 is on my list. I've liked the first two, and I think they're moving in the right direction each time. They're pretty good with their community too- they've released updates and patches other devs would've tried to push as DLC and upgrade offers. Likewise their Cyberpunk 2077 looks cool but they haven't talked much about it since it's going to come out after Witcher 3.
I was also tracking Prey 2 since it looked like a nice bit of sci-fi bounty hunting, but they've gone quiet. I guess they've gone into development hell even though fears of them having been cancelled was denied by Bethesda. At least a few months ago.
Some other games I've been waiting around for on the console end
-Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is coming out first, followed by Phantom Pain. I'm still not really clear what the heck is going on with these titles though, it doesn't help Kojima often posts like a drunken person on his twitter feed.
-Watch Dogs: It had a nice release trailer and I like the concept of a crime-game rooted in more modern concepts of hacking and information warfare.
... and when ever Fallout 4 comes around.
I'll think of some others later. But those come to mind right now.

MGSV (both parts, of course) because I am a fan of the series. Walking Dead Season Two because the first was so awesome. Elder Scrolls Online, because my friends are all planning on playing it as well.
That's about it.

Starbound, new updates for Kerbal Space Program, and GTA V for PC.

Honestly I think Star Citizen looks absurdly overrated. I don't feel that walking around your ship is going to be anything other than fluff after about the first hour or so, and will probably get annoying after a while. And I don't see anything unique offered by it other than that. So I'm really not understanding the hype.
I WAS watching X: Rebirth but that turned out to be a total flop. Not really looking forward to any games at the moment, honestly.

I can understand the overrated part, people are playing up the game way too much like it's going to be earth-altering, but it's a space sim with a persistent universe- the walking around the ship bit is only a proof of concept provided to show their modeling. The game isn't even in alpha stage yet.
I anticipate though that there will be some people who contributed a lot of money during their fundraisers end up disappointed. It's bound to happen and it'll be a drama wagon when that starts.
Looking forward to playing Dustforce, especially one chap here in the team who wants to buy xbox one after playing Dustforce on his xbox 360 (weird) - his name is Rhys. We are looking forward to GTA V on PC as well, yep.
