Release dates: every video game confirmed for 2020

By Sherif Saed, Friday, 23 October 2020 15:52 GMT

Just looking at the sheer number of big, highly-anticipated games coming in 2020, there’s very little chance the year will disappoint.

2020 has kicked off, and as we do every year, we’re bringing you a round-up of all the video game release dates in one place. So many games originally shooting for 2019 got pushed back to the new year, to say nothing of the many other heavy-hitters aiming for launch in 2020.

The year will hopefully be one to remember, though we do hope the real world doesn’t screw things up too much.

January

2020 kicked things off with a healthy release schedule in January. Capcom was once again the first to strike with the Iceborne’s PC launch. If Monster Hunter was not your thing, you may have been tempted by Warcraft 3: Reforged, Journey to the Savage Planet, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, or the Re Mind DLC for Kingdom Hearts 3.
