Release dates: every game confirmed for 2018

By Sherif Saed, Friday, 14 September 2018 16:12 GMT

We’re well into 2018 now and even though we’ve already 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 E3 month. While most of us spent the first half of June in E3 speculation mode, mostly followed by excitement once the show opened, the second half of June has been business as usual for game releases.

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

If none of these heavy hitters managed 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 did that instead.

A few days after E3 week, things picked up again with the release of Wolfenstein 2 on Switch, Fighting EX Layer, and what was possibly the biggest release in the month: The Crew 2.

July

Mega Man X Legacy Collection

We kicked things off in July with the release of Red Faction: Guerrilla Remastered, before a few indies joined the fray. Co-op shooter Earthfall, Insane Robots, and Mushroom Wars 2 on Switch were among them.

Not many bigger-profile games had planned release dates in July, with the Mega Man X Collection 1&2, and Sonic Mania Plus having been the exceptions. But that’s not all, the anticipated release of Vermintide 2 on Xbox One, Octopath Traveler on Switch, and WarioWare Gold on 3DS kept some of us busy in the second half of July.

August

August was the calm before the storm in September. While some of us were saving their cash for the onslaught to come, others were content to dabble into some of August’s most interesting games.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, Overcooked 2, We Happy Few, Death’s Gambit, Guacamelee 2 were just some of the names. Sports fans had both Madden NFL 19, and PES 2019 to enjoy.

September

Summer has finally ended and we are well and truly heading into autumn. September is officially the start of this period, of course, which means there’s a long list of big games we can’t wait to get our hands on.

The list includes Spider-Man, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Destiny 2: Forsaken, Life is Strange 2, and Dragon Quest 11. This only scratches the surface of what September has in store for us, though. We’re also curious about SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, and Valkyria Chronicles 4.

We started the year off with a couple of games already shooting for a 2019 release. As more of 2018 went by, more and more games joined the 2019 train like Psychonauts 2, The Wolf Among Us: Season 2, Shenmue 3, and PS4 exclusive Days Gone.
