Release dates: every game confirmed for 2018

By Sherif Saed, Tuesday, 12 June 2018 07:45 GMT

We’re well into 2018 now and even though we’ve seen some epic game releases, there’s still plenty more big hitters to come.

As we do every year, we’ve gathered as many release dates as possible in one place for you to check out anytime. The list is updated daily, and though we do try to include as many games as possible, some inevitably slip.

All the major releases will be here, though, so don’t fret. If you want to return to the entire 2017 release list anytime, you can do so via the link below:

Here are all the confirmed release dates for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One games. These are the Western release dates, and always the earliest – whether that is US, worldwide, or European dates. We sometimes also highlight other anticipated releases like DLCs, betas, big updates and so on.

The list will be split into even more months and seasons the more release dates get confirmed.

January

May

The month before E3 wasn’t really quiet, having had plenty to look forward to throughout. The biggest release has obviously been Dark Souls Remastered towards the end of the month.

Well before this classic re-release, though, games like Pillars of Eternity 2, Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, the Switch port of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and the full release of Conan Exiles kept us entertained.

Warhammer 40,000 fans had Space Hulk: Deathwing to get stuck in. And if you didn’t dabble in any of that, perhaps games like State of Decay 2 or the dark cyberpunk future of Detroit: Become Human caught your attention.

June

June is obviously the month of E3. But while most of us will spend the first half of June in E3 speculation mode, typically followed by excitement or disappointment, the second half of June is business as usual for games.

That’s how it’s typically been the last few years, though things are a bit different this time around. Before E3 shenanigans kicks off on June 9, a few anticipated indie and smaller games will have been released. We’re talking about Vampyr, Onrush, and the full release of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr.

If none of these heavy hitters manage to grab your attention, perhaps Far Cry 5’s Vietnam-themed Hours of Darkness DLC, The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset expansion, or the anticipated BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will do that instead.

Once we’re past E3 week, the release season starts to pick up again with the Switch version of Wolfenstein 2, Fighting EX Layer, and what’s possibly the biggest release in the month: The Crew 2.
