This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.

    Future MS/MA units predictions 

The next title (i.e. DWG4) will start drawing from the various side materials, (potentially lesser-known) OVAs, video games, and manga adaptations included.

Let's be honest here: Gundam is such an all-encompassing, tremendously gigantic franchise that, if sales kept the series afloat, the DW:G series could keep going for at least another 3-4 games on the basis of adding 20-30 new Mobile Suits per title. Story isn't much trouble to deal with, since the series runs on Excuse Plots revolving around non-SD SD Gundam Gundams. The only problem is that most of the series represented are coming close to exhausting the "main" lineup of characters and their Mobile Suits. Yes, titles like G Gundam, Gundam X, ∀ Gundam, SEED Destiny, and 00 (among others) haven't really had their surfaces scratched either and other entries such as The 08th MS Team and War in the Pocket have yet to be touched at all, but why stop there? I managed to devise a "wish list" of sorts that spans close to (if not more than) 90 Mobile Suits and Mobile Armors, with a good number of them hailing from side-stories. Therefore, I say bring on the Blue Destiny 1 note , Le Cygne, S Gundam, the Crossbone Gundam X-1, Gundam Griepe, Hydra Gundam, Mercurius Suivant and Vayeate Suivant note , Wing Gundam Seraphim note , Gundam Belphagor note , the various Astray Frames, Stargazer Gundam and Strike Noir note , Gundam Astraea note , and more. Even use OG MS like Phoenix Gundam note  and Extreme Gundam note  if need be. As far as Gundam is concerned, diversity is hardly a bad thing.

    Possible story scenarios (the plot in general, character team-ups, rivalries, etc.) 

We'll get teams in a future game based on being similar characters.
Such as a team out of the mentally troubled girls that have a connection to the protagonist, like Four, Rosamia, and the Purus. Another team will be the junk collectors, like Judau, Garrod, Dou, and Louwe Geue. And of course a team consisting of nothing but Char and his clones.
  • Why can't we go back to the teams from the first DW:G? Zechs, Domon, and Puru was probably the most awesome thing about that game.

The main antagonist(s) of 4 will be the G-Saviour and all assorted elements of G-Saviour.
Why not poke some fun at the one entry no one wants to acknowledge as part of the Gundam franchise by having it attempt to reassert itself into canon via time-space continuum shenanigans? You could perhaps even bring in another SD Gundam (Command Gundam, Ryubi Gundam, etc.) to serve as The Corrupter/Treacherous Advisor/The Man Behind the Man.

Dynasty Warriors characters will actually be in one of the future games.
Because goddammit, why not? Think of Lu Bu and Zhao Yun in actual Gundams. THINK!
  • They could bring this series full circle and add BB Senshi Sangokuden mobile suits. For added points, they could tie the actual Dynasty Warriors characters to their respective Gundams. And if they really wanna milk this, there's also a Sengoku line of BB Senshi, which they can tie with Samurai Warriors.
