Video games are a lot like years: They start coming, then they don’t stop coming, and they don’t stop coming, and they…yeah. Then you’ve got the games industry’s tectonically shifting release calendar, defined by an endless march of delays and cancellations. Even if you’re the most avid gamer, it’s a lot to keep track of! So let us help. We’ve put together a comprehensive rundown of every video game release date on the horizon.

Okay, fine, obviously this isn’t literally every game coming out between now and the heat death of the universe. There are more games than one could possibly keep track of these days, not all of which may be of interest to the average person. And that’s to say nothing of the slew of smaller games that look fantastic but don’t have solid release dates and thus slip through the cracks, unfortunately.

Still, what follows comprises a whole bunch of the video games coming out in the foreseeable future. If you’d like your studio’s game to be considered for inclusion, please (politely!) email [email protected] with a link to a press kit and other key details, particularly the platforms on which it’ll release. We’ll be updating this list regularly.

All right, with the housekeeping out of the way, to quote Sonic the Hedgehog from the multiplayer mode of Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, let’s do this!
