Featured General What Games Are You Looking Forward To Playing In 2018?

  1. The first two months of the year are typically relatively quiet, compared to the autumn/winter onslaught. That said, more and more big games are moving their release dates to these months for better exposure. In 2018, January and February are full of surprises. We already have confirmed release dates for Monster Hunter World, the Shadow of the Colossus remake, Dragon Ball FighterZ, the big Arcade Edition update for Street Fighter 5 and many more.

    Below are some of the "confirmed" release dates for games in 2018
    • Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition (PC, PS4) – January 16
    • Monster Hunter World (PS4, Xbox One) – January 26
    • Dragon Ball FighterZ (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – January 26
    • Call of Duty: WW2 – The Resistance DLC pack (PS4) [30 days early] – January 30
    • Celeste (PC, Switch, PS4) – January
    • UFC 3 (PS4, Xbox One) – February 2
    • Shadow of the Colossus (PS4) – February 6 NA / February 7 EU
    • Civilization 6: Rise and Fall (PC) – February 8
    • Metal Gear Survive (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – February 20 US / February 22 EU
    Compared to January and February, March looks a bit quieter than usual. For many publishers, releasing games in March is a good way to boost fiscal year earnings before it ends, but we don’t have as many heavy-hitters this time around.

    What we do have, however, is Far Cry 5, the promising A Way Out, Attack on Titan 2, the Western release of Yakuza 6, and a few other games. This is also where we’re going to lump all games with tentative “early 2018” release targets, and anything else aiming for the first quarter.

    • Devil May Cry HD Collection (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – March 13
    • Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (PS4) – March 20
    • Attack on Titan 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – March 20
    • Sea of Thieves (PC, Xbox One) – March 20
    • A Way Out (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – March 23
    • Far Cry 5 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – March
    • Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition (PC) – early 2018
    • Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – early 2018
    • God of War (PS4) – early 2018
    • Syberia 3 (Switch) – Q1
    There is a large chunk of the year leading up to and extending for a bit after E3 2018. It’s different every year, but we’re hoping big-ticket spring games like Red Dead Redemption 2 will actually make it out in the spring like Rockstar announced and not get delayed, again.

    Because we’re including April and May in this section, you’ll find games like Crackdown 3, Vampyr, We Happy Few, State of Decay 2 and others – all without confirmed dates.
    • We Happy Few (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – April 18
    • Conan Exiles (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – May 8
    • Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – May
    • Crackdown 3 (PC, Xbox One) – spring
    • Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4, Xbox One) – spring
    • Vampyr (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – spring
    • State of Decay 2 (PC, Xbox One) – spring
    • Mega Man Legacy Collection, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 (Switch) – spring
    • System Shock Remake (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – Q2
    • Immortal: Unchained (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – Q2
    Summer isn’t typically grouped up with the busy fall season, but we’re only doing this now because there just aren’t that many confirmed dates. Many of the biggest games have a vague “second half” release window, whereas others opted for the less opaque “fall” target.

    Besides that, there aren’t really that many games targeting the summer, at least not yet. Many of the games here will eventually have proper dates as the year goes on.
    • Mega Man X collection (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – summer
    • Shenmue 3 (PC, PS4) – second half
    • The Wolf Among Us 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – second half
    • Overkill’s The Walking Dead (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – fall
    • Metro: Exodus (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – fall
    • Skull and Bones (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – fall
    • Monster Hunter World (PC) – fall
    • Mega Man 11 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – late 2018
    • Anthem (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – late 2018
    • Blacksad (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) – Q4
    All of the games below are shooting for release at some point in 2018. We don’t know when, not yet, but we’re hoping the list will get slimmer every week until everything slots nicely into place. This is the biggest section by far, as it rounds up all manner of 2018 release.

    If you don’t find a game at any of the categories above, you’ll definitely find it here.
    • My Hero Academia: One’s Justice (PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One)
    • Insurgency: Sandstorm (PC, PS4, Xbox One)

    What games are you looking forward to playing in 2018?
     
  2. Red Dead Redemption 2 (if it does indeed release this year) and I'm still looking forward to Crackdown 3 though not as much as when it was announced.

    Metro: Exodus could be a big hit. I really enjoyed the first two games.
     
  3. I'm looking forward to Metro Exodus the most, though I'm also interested in Red Dead (assuming 2K don't kill it with microtransactions). There's sure to be more announced at E3 but out of the ones we know about those two stand out the most.
     
  4. I'm looking forward to playing Anthem the most. Hopefully it will still be released later this year. Things have been quiet on the development front so I'd expect to hear some news at this year's E3.

    Far Cry 5 might be a fun game however I found 4 to be quite disappointing and didn't really take to the change of direction in Far Cry Primal.
