The new games of 2021 are already proving that there’s never a bad year to be a PC gamer. Even amidst continuing game delays caused by Covid-19 conditions, we’ve gotten multiple surprises already for the year. So far, we’ve seen our first surprise smash hit with early access viking game Valheim. We were also as pleased as we hoped we’d be with Hitman 3’s trilogy finale. The spring is scheduled to heat up as we look forward to class-based FPS Outriders and Arkane’s next FPS Deathloop.
After the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles launched late last year, 2021 is sure to have more surprises yet. This year’s releases will likely capitalize on the power in those new consoles, which PC versions should benefit from too.
Due in part to the Covid-19 pandemic, a lot of games, big and small, delayed from their original dates to this year. Highly anticipated games like Halo Infinite have wound up with new plans to launch in 2021. It doesn’t look like news of delays will be drying up just yet, either. We likely haven’t quite seen the end of game delays caused by the pandemic as developers continue to work from home. As with last year, we’ll keep this page up to date with all the new announcements, delays, and reveals for games releasing in 2021.
This is your big guide to the games to watch in 2021, which we’ve organized by month to help you look ahead. At the top we’ve highlighted the biggest and most anticipated games launching this year. At the bottom are 2021 games with release dates “TBA”—things that should be (or we hope will be) arriving this year—but haven’t yet committed to a release date.
