Speaking with CVG, Sega says that they have two major hardcore games that they'll be announcing before the end of the year. As to what they are, we'll just have to wait until they announce it or it gets leaked.
Sega did let loose a couple of details in regards to the releases. One will be released in 2011 and the other in 2012. 2010 gets Platinum Games' Vanquish, a third person shooter with plenty of hi-octane action.
"Vanquish is getting a good response," said Hayes, "that's our big hope for the release later this year to keep us in the 360/PS3 core game slot.
"Then we've got two other big games that we'll be announcing this year for 2011 and 2012. So we're not going to be overly aggressive - but we're going to try to have one or two games each year in that segment."
Sega currently has a couple of games in the pipeline, including Vanquish as well as a couple of Sonic games.
