Video game release dates 2021

All the release dates for games coming out in 2021 and beyond.

It's time to look back on another year of video games.

2021 is over. As we've done every year, we've kept track of all video games released over the course of the year in this page.

2021 has been a big year, though not quite on the same level as 2020. We’ve had two major console launches in 2020, after all, alongside some of the most anticipated games in The Last of Us Part 2, Marvel’s Avengers, and Cyberpunk 2077 - even if a few ended up being disasters. Nevertheless, the coronavirus pandemic forced many developers to push their games to 2021.

If you missed our 2020 game release dates list, you can view it at the link. And if you like to look into the future, here's our 2022 game release dates list.
