New decade, who dis? We’re on the verge of a new era in gaming, and like anyone who has some cash to flash and a desire to forget about the fact that we’re a year away from our next vacation, we’re after some new games! So what’s on the horizon? Plenty! The year that is 2020 will have pretty much any game that your heart desires, ranging from heavyweight AAA blockbusters to indie gems.

Beyond that, we’ve got two new consoles to save up for, plenty of DLC and a whole lot of Early Access to throw into the pot as well. I’ll be keeping this list updated as time goes on, so bookmark this page and F5 whenever you need an update. So let’s get this show on the road with the Post-Christmas survival month that is:

January

Nothing too surprising here. January is usually a month reserved for chancers and Japanese heroes, with Capcom always having something to offer. This year they’ll be a bit light on saving the day, only having the PC platform expansion for Monster Hunter World to offer. It’s Bandai Namco who’s stepping up to the plate though, with a brand new Dragon Ball game that I can’t wait to get my hands on.

March

May the gaming gods have mercy on your soul. There’s no mistake here, as many a high profile game is ready to make their mark in March. Bethesda strikes back with DOOM Eternal, Square Enix goes for the throat with the long in development Final Fantasy VII Remake (Update: Now an April game!) and the first proper Half-Life game in many a year is heading to SteamVR. All that, and plenty of games aimed directly at anime fans as well:

  • Langrisser I & II (PC, PS4, Switch) – March 10
  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps (PC, Xbox One) – March 11
  • My Hero: One’s Justice 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – March 13
  • Nioh 2 (PS4) – March 13
  • La Mulana 1 & 2: Hidden Treasures Edition (PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – March 17

  • Persona 5: Royal (PS4) – March 31
  • Half-Life: Alyx (PC) – March TBC
  • Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord – Steam Early Access (PC) – March TBC

April

Or as well like to call it, the month of Cyberpunk. CD Projekt Red’s massively hyped game finally drops in April, and you’d have to be mad to release a game anywhere near it in that timeframe, which explains why the month of fools is so light. Or it was that way, until some little indie game by the name of Final Fantasy VII Remake decided to move in. Capcom reckons they’ve got enough fan favour to take an early gamble in April with a remake of Resident Evil 3, while the tailend of the month is currently propped up by Gears Tactics, Predator: Hunting Grounds and Trials of Mana.

  • Resident Evil 3 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – April 03
  • Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4) – April 10
  • Cyberpunk 2077 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – April 16
  • Predator: Hunting Grounds (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – April 24
  • Trials of Mana (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – April 24
  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto (Switch) – April 24
  • Gears Tactics (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – April 28
  • Minecraft Dungeons (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – April TBC

May

Nearly at the halfway mark of the year now! With April a distant memory, the best month (due to it being the month of mine and several other pals’ birthdays) has Maneater and The Last of Us Part II. Fun for the whole family!

  • Fast & Furious Crossroads (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – May 09
  • Wasteland 3 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – May 29
  • Maneater (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – May 22
  • Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – May 22
  • The Last of Us Part II (PS4) – May 29
  • New World (PC) – May TBC

Quick note: There’s a lot of games not listed here, as they’re currently pencilled in for various quarterly release dates. Those are dates which are prone to delays, so until I get a definitive month I’m leaving them out for now.
