Release dates: every video game confirmed for 2021

It’s time to look forward to another year of video games.

2021 is finally here, the perfect excuse for us to forget all about the dreaded 2020. As we do every year, we also intend to keep track of all upcoming games pencilled in for 2021 and beyond in this page.

2021 promises to be a big year, though not quite on the same level as 2020. We’ve had two major console launches in 2020, after all, alongside some of the most anticipated games in The Last of Us Part 2, Marvel’s Avengers, and Cyberpunk 2077 – even if a few ended up being disasters. Nevertheless, the coronavirus pandemic forced many developers to push their games back to 2021, so we should see a healthy season of – hopefully – polished games that keep us entertained all year.

If you missed our 2020 game release dates list, you can view it at the link.

As always, the new list won’t take its proper form until a bit deeper into the year. For now, here are all the games targeting 2021 and beyond.

January
