Release dates: every game confirmed for 2019

By Sherif Saed, Monday, 30 September 2019 15:57 GMT

2019 has officially kicked off and there’s plenty to get excited about.

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

All the major releases will be listed here, though, so don’t fret.

Blow you’ll find all confirmed release dates for PC, PS4, Nintendo 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.

If you want to return to the entire 2018 release list anytime, you can do so via the link below:

We’re starting off with a few months already stacked, and more will join as release targets turn into actual dates.

May wasn’t that much more lively compared to April, but it had a few things going for it. Rage 2, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 PC being the obvious, early candidates.

The first half of May also saw the release of A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Episode 3 of Life is Strange 2, before things tapered off. Finally, both Total War: Three Kingdoms, and Blood & Truth made it out before the month is over.

As expected, E3 month has been slow for new releases. Though it was mostly devoid of big hitters, we did get a few solid games like The Elder Scrolls Online’s Elsweyr expansion, and Diablo-like ARPG Warhammer: Chaosbane early on.

WW2 shooter Hell Let Loose, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Steel Division 2, Samurai Shodown, Crash Team Racing, and The Sinking City all kept us engaged once we got done with E3.
