Biggest New Games of 2021 & Beyond

It's a big year ahead in gaming.

Last updated:

The year ahead is shaping up to one of the most interesting in gaming history for a lot of reasons. Not only are there now two new consoles, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X (three if you count the S separately), but real world problems might have impacted a lot of new games. In fact, a lot of the news games of 2021 were slated for the year prior before delays pushed them back.

With that in mind, let’s put together a comprehensive release schedule for everything launching this year, whether that’s PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, or Switch. As a lot of these games are cross-gen titles, you won’t find many PS5 exclusives or Xbox exclusives, though that just means that more people can play them than ever.

Below you can find an index by month of all the new games coming out over the next year; those scheduled to drop in 2021 without a concrete release date can be found in the TBC section. We’ll be updating this with new upcoming games of 2021 as they are announced.

212 Reviews

The closing part of the World of Assassination Trilogy lands in January 2021 with the release of Hitman 3. Nothing much has been overhauled from the two most recent Hitman games, but with those belonging right at the top of the stealth genre, no huge renovations were necessary. Watch this be one of 2021’s best games and then not enough people buy it. The PS4 version even comes with a VR version.

 

The Medium | January 28th, 2021

The Medium

Developer: Bloober Team
Publisher: Bloober Team
Platform(s): PC, XSXS

Originally slated to launch in 2020, The Medium is a timed Xbox console exclusive from the minds behind Layers of Fear and Observer. We’ve already seen what Bloober can do on next-gen with their dystopian vision and The Medium looks like surpassing the rest of their work to date. Featuring two different worlds to play in as well as music from the mind behind Silent Hill, keep an eye on this one.

Developer: Lucid Games, Wushsu Studios
Publisher: SIE
Platform(s): PS5

Originally slated to launch alongside the new console itself, this PS5 exclusive was instead pushed back into its February 2021 slot and also as part of PlayStation Plus, meaning that it’s “free” for millions from day one. But what is it? Well, it’s a vehicular combat multiplayer game that’s a lot like if Twisted Metal was made by Pixar thanks to the ridiculous weapons and generally slapstick nature. It might not be revolutionary or keep your attention for months, but does it have to be?

 

Little Nightmares 2 | February 11th, 2021

Little Nightmares 2
Little Nightmares 2

Developer: Tarsier
Publisher: Bandai Namco
Platform(s): PC, PS4, XB1, Switch

The long in the making sequel to the cult hit of 2017, Little Nightmares 2 puts you in the ever so tiny shoes of Mono as he travels with Six to discover the truth behind The Signal Tower. Expect some disturbing sights without the gore if the first game is anything to go by, which you really ought to have played if you haven’t already. While you could likely get away with not playing it or its DLC ahead of the sequel, the weird world of Little Nightmares is worth diving into wherever you can.

 

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury | February 12th, 2021

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury

Developer: Nintendo

Platform(s): Switch

As part of Mario’s 35th Anniversary and following the release of Super Mario 3D All-Stars back in September, Nintendo continued the celebrations and decided to treat fans with the upcoming release of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. This enhanced port includes the full Wii U game, with updated controls for the Switch, as well as Bowser’s Fury, its until now unreleased expansion that we still don’t know much about. Let’s wait and see then what Nintendo has prepared since now the cat’s out of the bag (Mario’s special costume is a kitty cat in this one).

 

Bravely Default 2 | February 26th, 2021

Bravely Default 2
Bravely Default 2

Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Nintendo
Platform: Switch

The Bravely series started on the Nintendo 3DS and is about to make the transition to the Switch. Bravely Default 2 is a turn-based RPG and quite old-school in its approach. The player traverses the overworld from an overhead view, exploring the landscape and engaging in battles with various types of monsters. What we don’t know though is how jobs will work in this entry, as the previous games in the series, Bravely Default and Bravely Second, featured a vast and kind of complicated Job system.

Platform(s): PC, PS4, XB1, Switch

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is, funnily enough, a remake of the cult classic from the PS2 era that had just about one of the least convincing reveals ever. Still, they’ve had plenty of time to up their game since then and with this remake promising to update the controls and modernise the visuals, it should hopefully bring a tonne of new players over to the franchise.

 

Balan Wonderworld | March 26th, 2021

Guess what happens when the creators of Sonic the Hedgehog re-join forces after almost 30 years? Balan Wonderworld, that’s what happens. Balan Wonderworld is a 3D action platform game themed around the world of theatre. Players are set to follow the direction of the enigmatic maestro Balan through 12 different stories, with each level blending fantastical elements as well as memories from the real world into the land of Wonderland. If you don’t want to miss out on this spectacular show, book your tickets for the Balan Theatre now (returns will not be accepted).

 

Monster Hunter Rise | March 26th, 2021

Monster Hunter Rise
Monster Hunter Rise

Developer: Capcom
Publisher: Capcom
Platform(s): Switch

Get ready to slay monsters. No, get ready to slay huge monsters, because Capcom’s latest beast-slaying epic is almost here and is ready to rock and roll. The recipe is familiar for returning hunters: kill the monster, collect the materials, craft new weapons and repeat. This time, though, Monster Hunter Rise will transport players to the colorful Kamura village, a new serene mountain that attracts visitors with its culture and innovative hunting technology. Close by, the new hunting grounds await, including the Ancient Shrine ruins where even bigger monsters roam. A new feature of Monster Hunter Rise is the inclusion of rideable companions, in other words mounts, that will offer a new set of attack options. Good stuff then.

 

It Takes Two | March 26th, 2021

It Takes Two
It Takes Two

Developer: Hazerlight
Publisher: Electronics Arts
Platform(s): PC, PS5, PS4, XSXS, XB1, Switch

It Takes Two, coming from the director of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and A Way Out, is a new cooperative platformer that focuses more on replayable challenges than a single-run campaign. And to emphasize on that co-operative nature even more, Hazelight gift a free Friend’s Pass with each purchase, which can be passed to a friend to join in. Sounds like the perfect couch co-op game?

Embark on a cooperative sci-fi third-person shooting experience developed by People Can Fly, the creators of Bulletstorm. In Outriders, players are able to create their customer avatars and choose from four classes, each granting different abilities. There is also a skill tree showcasing the roleplaying elements of the game. Further, different weapons such as shotguns and assault rifles can be customized in an effort to personalize the experience. Outriders includes many side missions and even allow players to decide the outcome of some conversations with the game’s various NPCs.

Time for some serious killer soundtrack punching as Guilty Gear Strive, the latest entry in the highly acclaimed Guilty Gear fighting game franchise, is set to hit the shelves this April. A roster of 15 unique characters will be available to players on their way towards a final confrontation with That Man, the evil person responsible for the destruction of the in-game world. Guilty Gear Strive also brings new innovative mechanics to the series such as a new wall-breaking mechanic and even deadlier musical combos.

 

Humankind | April 22nd, 2021

Humankind
Humankind

Developer: Amplitude Studios
Publisher: SEGA
Platform(s): PC, Stadia

Humankind is a strategy game comparable to the Civilization series. Players can lead their civilizations across six major eras of human civilization, starting from the nomadic age. Within each of these eras, strategy maniacs can pick one of the ten civilization types, which are based on historical societies, and receive bonuses or penalties. Another interesting feature of Humankind is that when players engage in combat with enemies, the game uses a tactical RPG game approach for a much more detailed resolution of the conflict.

 

NieR Replicant | April 23rd, 2021

Nier Replicant
Nier Replicant

Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Square Enix
Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

A decade after the original release of NieR Automata on the PS3 and X360, its upgraded sequel, previously released only in Japan, is set to roll out as a swan song to the eighth generation of video game consoles. It’s worth mentioning also that Nier Replicant is more than a remaster as it features new characters, improved gameplay and new story elements. In other words, it aims to make everything more polished and modern than in the original game. It has also been confirmed that staff members from PlatinumGames, creators of the sequel Nier: Automata and Bayonetta hack and slash series, are on board.

 

New Pokémon Snap | April 30th, 2021

The new Pokémon game that many wanted but nobody genuinely expected, New Pokémon Snap launches in late April exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. Visit the amazingly named Lental and take photos of the wild Pokémon who live there while driving around in your NEO-ONE. But something’s amiss with the the Illumina phenomenon making some Pokémon emit a special glow. New Pokémon Snap looks like it may already have a tonne more depth than its predecessor.

 

Returnal | April 30th, 2021

Returnal game
Returnal game

Developer: Housemarque
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Platform: PS5

This upcoming PS5 exclusive has the potential to become one of the most satisfying third-person shooters of 2021. Returnal mixes the bullet-hell genre with rogue elements while putting into the mix an alien planet with eerie settings and exotic weaponry. What more could anyone want?

Resident Evil 8 Village

Developer: Capcom
Producer: Capcom
Platform(s): PC, PS5, XSXS

Resident Evil doesn’t need an introduction. The longtime survival horror video game series chilled gamers to the bone over many generations. Resident Evil Village is the upcoming latest entry and the tenth major installment in the said series. It is a direct sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard with previous protagonist Ethan returning. The game is going to again adopt a first-person view and is based in some kind of village reminiscent of the British countryside in which cults and the occult prevail. And werewolves. Did we mention that the game is rumored to feature werewolves?

Well, if nostalgia got the best of you and you truly missed the original Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombie mode, now’s the chance to relieve those memories. Back 4 Blood is a cooperative first-person shooter from the creators of the fantastic Left 4 Dead franchise, where you shoot… zombies. Surprise, huh? Humanity’s extinction is on the line and it’s up to you and your friends to get rid of the zombies and save the world.

God of War Ragnarok | TBC 2021

God of War Ragnarok
God of War Ragnarok

Developer: Santa Monica Studio
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Platform (s): PS5

God of War Ragnarok could easily win the title of the most anticipated video game of 2021. Although officially unnamed, this newer entry in the popular hack and slash series will have Kratos keep slaughtering beasts based in Norse mythology and journey through Scandinavian settings. The game is set to release sometime later this year, though it wouldn’t be a surprise to see it get delayed to later.

 

Horizon Forbidden West | TBC 2021

Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon Forbidden West

Developer: Guerrilla Games
Producer: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Platform(s): PS5, PS4

A PlayStation exclusive, Horizon Forbidden West is an epic third-person action RPG adventure with an expansive open world and crystal clear graphics. Lush forests, sunken cities and towering mountains of a post-apocalyptic America eagerly wait to be explored by players who will also have to engage in battles against gigantic machines. As a sequel to the critically acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn, expectations for Horizon Forbidden West are relatively high as is also the addition of underwater exploration.

 

Far Cry 6 | TBC 2021

Far Cry 6
Far Cry 6

Developer: Ubisoft Toronto
Producer: Ubisoft
Platform(s): PC, PS5, PS4, XSXS, Xbox One

The Far Cry series is among the most recognizable video game franchises that has ever been created. They combine fine first-person shooting with the thrill of surviving in a foreign environment, and overcoming some tyrannical regime. Far Cry 6 is no exception as players follow local Dani and fight using guerrilla tactics and weaponry to liberate the nation of Yara. The game was scheduled to be released this February but Ubisoft decided to delay it. It will most definitely hit the shelves sometime this year, though.

 

Halo Infinite | TBC 2021

Halo Infinite

Developer: 343 Industries
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Platform(s): PC, XB1, Xbox 4

There’s a lot riding on Halo Infinite. Not only does it have to get the Halo series back on track after the disappointment of Halo 5, but it also has to prop up the appeal of the new Xbox console when it launches. We’ve not seen any gameplay of it at this time of writing, but it shouldn’t be too long until we get to see Chief in action again.

 

Psychonauts 2 | TBC 2021

psychonauts 2

Developer: Double Fine
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Platform(s): PC, PS4, XB1

Psychonauts 2, the sequel to the PS2 era cult classic, has been knocking around for nearly half a decade now, it receiving two delays after successful crowdfunding. With Microsoft now in control of Double Fine, here’s hoping they can finally steer it into our hands. Interesting side note: Microsoft will be publishing the game on PS4.

 

No More Heroes 3 | TBC 2021

No More Heroes 3

Developer: Grasshopper Manufacture
Publisher: Marvelous
Platform(s): Switch

Following the success of a small scale spin off, No More Heroes 3 was confirmed exclusively for the Switch; NMH had its start on Nintendo’s consoles. If you’ve never played a game in the series before, expect some absolutely manic action and enough buckets of blood to make a vampire squeamish. Though not yet confirmed, the threequel may also return to open world.

 

Riders Republic | TBC 2021

Riders Republic
Riders Republic

Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Platform(s): PC, PS5, XSXS, PS4, XB1, Stadia

Remember Steep? Well, Ubisoft hope you don’t as Riders Republic looks very much like its not very distant cousin. Swap the icy mountains of Steep for the sandy wilderness and you have Riders Republic, which looks like a live service game if ever we’ve seen one. Featuring mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, wingsuit flying, and rocket wingsuiting (wow, yes please), Riders Republic sees over fifty players racing each other at once in its next gen versions. Time will tell if it sticks in the memory a little better than, erm, Steep. Yep, that one.

 

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 | TBC 2021

Bloodlines 2 4

Developer: Black Forest Games GmbH
Publisher: THQ Nordic
Platform(s): PC, PS4, XB1

It was certainly a surprise to see Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 pop up, especially as the original game was only ever a cult game. It was so underappreciated, in fact, that it was the last thing its developer did before it went out of business. Bloodlines 2 has the intricacies of that classic RPG in a modern, bloodthirsty package, topped off with some sumptuous visuals. To avoid the mistakes of the first game, it received a small delay to make sure it was the best it could be.

 

Rainbow Six Quarantine | TBC 2021

Rainbow Six Quarantine

Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Platform(s): PC, PS4, XB1, PS5, Xbox 4

Everybody loved the limited time mode introduced to Siege that turned it into a PVE experience similar to Left 4 Dead, so much so that Ubisoft have spun it off into its own game. Previously scheduled for a tentative 2020 but was one of three games to get pushed back at once because of the poor response of Breakpoint.

 

Skull & Bones | TBC

Skull & Bones

Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Platform(s): PC, PS4, XB1

Ubisoft’s periodically delayed pirate simulator has had a staccato development since it was announced, it falling off the map multiple times and generally not capturing many headlines. With its most recent delay, Skull & Bones will have even more time to make it stand out amongst the crowd.

 

Bayonetta 3 | TBC

Bayonetta 3

Developer: Platinum Games
Publisher: Nintendo
Platform(s): Switch

Not much is known about Bayonetta 3, other than that it will be exclusive to the Switch and will feature a nice witch. Based on previous games in the franchise, you can expect some absolutely absurd action and a killer soundtrack to match. No release date or gameplay for this one yet.

 

Babylon’s Fall | TBC

Babylon's Fall

Developer: PlatinumGames
Publisher: Square Enix
Platform(s): PC, PS4

At this time of writing, Babylon’s Fall was pencilled in for a 2019 release after a very brief showing at E3 2018, but nothing has come of it yet. In fact, word on Babylon’s Fall has been very hard to come by in general, with just a quick showing during a State of Play. Perhaps Platinum are spread too thinly with many projects on the go at once, but there’s every chance we will see the game in 2020.

 

Dying Light 2 | TBC

Dying Light 2 5

Developer: Techland
Publisher: Techland Publishing
Platform(s): PC, PS4, XB1

A hugely ambitious sequel to one of the most underrated open world games of all time, Dying Light 2 will feature a world that reacts to your choices alongside the parkour of the original game and zombie-killing action. Dying Light 2 features quite the pedigree in the writing department, and if it’s supported half as well post-launch as the original game, we’ll be in for a treat, though we may be waiting for a long while after a huge delay.

 

Metroid Prime 4 | TBC

Metroid Prime 4

Developer: Nintendo/Retro Studios
Publisher: Nintendo
Platform(s): Switch

We didn’t see anything of Metroid Prime 4 for a long time and then it was announced that it would be receiving a pretty hefty delay with a change in developer. Even still, Nintendo are angling for an early 2021 release for this one. We just thought we’d put it here to remind you.
