Release dates: every game confirmed for 2017

2017 is shaping up to be a strong year for new releases, book-ended by a new Resident Evil in January and ending with a new Red Dead Redemption sometime later in the year. In between there’s the return of massive franchises such as Mass Effect, console exclusives like Detroit: Become Human, and the continued vibrancy of cool releases from the indie scene.

We’ve put together this list of games for every title confirmed for PS4, Xbox One and PC over the coming 12 months, as well as the addition of some of the more interesting or high-profile releases on other platforms, including those for Nintendo’s new console, the Switch. We’ll also note all major DLC updates for the biggest games too.

We’ll update this throughout the year, juggling dates as games are announced and delayed, and as others are nailed down to specific months of the year. Now, what are you looking forward to playing?
