That’s just the first five months of 2020. And you know what’s the craziest part of all? There are still a slew of unannounced games that are probably just as big planned for 2020. And you also need to take into account that two new home consoles are coming our way later at the end of the year: Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox One sequel codenamed Project Scarlett. And just like every significant console debut, incredible games will launch with them. And that means holiday 2020 will be just as awesome as the first half of the year.
Even with all those planned game releases and new console launches, the year is packed with even more games that don’t yet have solid release dates. A remake of Destroy All Humans, plus Guilty Gear, Dying Light 2, Halo Infinite, Tales of Arise and Psychonauts 2 will be heavy hitters for 2020. It’s one thing to say that each year offers new titles in every genre of gaming. But it’s a whole other thing to realize that 2020 is offering up AAA quality titles in each of those genres.
2020 already has a lot going for it. But then there’s another thought that should enter the minds of gamers with plenty of disposable income: What about the games that have been long in development and look to be ready for a 2020 release? The next Call of Duty is rumored to be moving into the fifth entry of the Black Ops sub-series, Sony’s samurai adventure Ghost of Tsushima could be a PS4/PS5 cross-gen title, the FromSoftware and George R.R. Martin collaboration Elden Ring could be a major fall release and Ubisoft’s pirate-filled adventure Skull & Bones may finally receive a solid release date in 2020.
With 2019 quickly winding down, gamers are already looking forward to the madness coming their way in the year ahead. 2020’s slate of incredible game releases and introduction to the next-generation of gaming means we have plenty of reasons to be excited about the consoles we house in our homes. Game on!
