The upcoming new video game releases of 2020

2020 promises to be a great year for the world of video games. These are the biggest and best new games to come out in 2020 and beyond, from The Last of Us 2 to Cyberpunk 2077.

The upcoming new video game releases of 2020

In addition to the fact that we will be playing much more than before due to the confinement situation we find ourselves in, there will be two highly anticipated new console releases: the new PS5 and the Xbox Series X. 

In addition, we can also enjoy the most important games in this generation from The Last of Us Part II to Cyberpunk 2077.

We know it's hard to keep up with all the new video game releases, so we've decided to do that job for you and put together in one article the best upcoming video game releases in 2020. 

1. The Last of Us (Part II)

  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release Date: June 19, 2020
  • Reserve: Amazon

The Last Of Us was one of the best video games of all time, so the sequel has a lot to accomplish. Five years after their predecessor, Ellie and Joel settled in Jackson, Wyoming, and found peace in a small community.

However, an unexpected situation will turn everything upside down, causing Ellie to go through a difficult and traumatic journey. With improved gameplay, new weapons, and a compelling story, we believe this game is going to become something special.

Delayed several times already, The Last of Us Part 2 was scheduled to be released in May 2020 but was delayed once again until June. 

2. Iron Man VR

  • Platforms: PS VR
  • Release Date: July 3, 2020
  • Reserve: Amazon 

We've all looked at Tony Stark and thought, 'Man, I wish I had one of those Iron Man suits for me.' Well, now you can. Iron Man VR comes to PS VR, in which you play the billionaire superhero who faces a ghost from his past. 

You will be able to use the repulsor jets to fire and control the flight movement of the suit, and as you progress through the game you will be able to add ingenious improvements to make your suit even more advanced. 

Originally slated for release in the spring, it has been delayed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, with no release date set for now.

3. Ghost of Tsushima

  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release Date: July 17, 2020

This PlayStation Exclusive is an open-world game that puts you in the shoes of a 1200-year-old Japanese samurai defending Tsushima Island from the invading Mongol empire. Expect fierce melee combat, plenty of stealth, and really impressive graphics.

4. Paper Mario: The Origami King

  • Platforms: Switch
  • Release Date: July 17, 2020
  • Reserve: Amazon

Paper Mario is finally coming to Switch in The Origami King, its first game since Color Slash 2016 on the unfortunate Wii U. Expect a return to the roots of the series' role-playing games along with the usual mix of puzzles, fighting and amazing word games on paper.

5. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC
  • Release Date: September 4, 2020
  • Reserve: Amazon

The first two games of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater return in a complete remastering package. 

All maps and skaters return, along with new licensed tracks and skaters, improved tools to create your own skaters and parks, and even online multiplayer.

The graphics are undergoing a complete overhaul, as are the controls, which also feature some of the key moves from later games, like reversing.

6. Marvel's Avengers

  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia
  • Release Date: September 4, 2020
  • Order it: Amazon 

After Marvel's Spiderman was a hit on PS4, Marvel Games is taking things one step further. That's right - The Avengers are gathering on the big consoles. Experience different superpowers in some of the most iconic moments in Marvel comics. 

In addition, we will also have the addition of fan-favorite Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel. The developers have also promised that this game will be optimized for more content in the coming years, making this superhero title an investment for gamers around the world.


7. Cyberpunk 2077

  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia
  • Release Date: September 17, 2020
  • Reserve: Amazon 

CD Projekt Red goes big with its continuation of The Witcher Trilogy: A massive open-world, first-person, cyberpunk science-fiction game based on a cult tabletop RPG. 

Known for years, but only revealed for the first time at E3 2018, Cyberpunk looks like one of the most ambitious RPGs ever made, combining dense progression systems, branching narratives, and fast-paced FPS battles into one set. 

Oh yes, and it features the awesome Keanu Reeves. We are ready to go to Night City now, please.

8. Star Wars: Squadrons

  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC
  • Release Date: October 2, 2020
  • Reserve: Xbox Store, Steam, Origin

The next Star Wars game is somewhat smaller. At a cost of only $ 39.99, this aerial first-person fighting game lets you put yourself in the position of a rebel pilot after the fall of the second Death Star. 

Despite its price, there will be a full singleplayer campaign, 5v5 multiplayer, and even VR support if you buy it on PS4 or PC.

9. Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope

  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC
  • Release Date: Fall 2020
  • Reserve: GAME

The Dark Pictures Anthology will have its second game this summer: Little Hope. 

The 2019 Man of Medan sequel will adopt the same interactive narrative structure, with the same pair of online and offline multiplayer modes as well. It also has another famous face: Will Poulter.

10. Watch Dogs Legion

  • Platforms: PS4, Google Stadia, Xbox One, PC
  • Release date: Q3 / Q4 2020
  • Reserve it: Amazon

One of the most anticipated games of 2020 has unfortunately been delayed until the second half of the year. 

The third installment in the WatchDog series will take place in post-Brexit London where players will be able to choose between five main stories and numerous protagonists. 

Each character's stats will be influenced by their backstory, and you're supposed to be able to recruit and play like any other NPC in the game. Watch Dogs Legion will also feature a multiplayer mode, although we are still waiting for more information about it. 

11. Gods & Monsters

  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Google Stadia
  • Release date: 2020
  • Reserve: GAME

The studio behind the renowned Assassins Creed: Odyssey comes with a new storybook adventure that gives us big Zelda vibes. According to the trailer, you will be on a quest to save some Greek gods, and at some point, you will face a large strange-looking bird. 

Other than that, we still don't know too much. But, we are very hopeful that this will be one of those to be seen. 

12. Halo Infinite

  • Platforms: Xbox One, PC, Xbox Project Scarlett
  • Release date: Holidays 2020
  • Reserve: Amazon

The first game on this list for next-gen consoles, Halo Infinite, will mark the return of the Master Chief, but also supposedly a spiritual reboot for the entire franchise, which is highly intriguing. So far we have no images of any game elements; the previous trailer was more like an announcement that gaming is one thing. But stay tuned.

13. Assassin's Creed Valhalla

  • Platforms : Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, PC, Stadia
  • Release date: Holidays 2020
  • Reserve it: Amazon

Assassin's Creed appears to be one of the first games to hit new-gen consoles, with the Viking ensemble's Valhalla launching on basically all platforms except Nintendo Switch.

Located between Norway and Great Britain, you'll be playing a Viking warrior trying to settle and survive against the English, with new features including your settlement development, raid, and raider customization to send them to your friends' games.

14. Rainbow Six: Quarantine

  • Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
  • Release date: 2020/2021
  • Reserve: Amazon
This standalone Rainbow Six title is inspired by the Sprout limited-time event in Rainbow Six: Siege, and sees teams of three players work together against a tech parasite. 

It's cooperative PvE, more so than PvP like Siege, and it could be a huge hit if it breaks beyond the core of Siege's fan base.

15. Resident Evil 8: Village

  • Platforms: Xbox Series X, PS5, PC
  • Release date: 2021
After a detour to redo Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, Capcom returns to the main story in Resident Evil 8: Village. 

Continuing with the protagonist and first-person perspective of Resident Evil 7, this seems like a new beginning for the franchise, with a snowy rural setting and ... werewolves?

16. Dying Light 2

  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC 
  • Release date: Unknown
  • Reserve: GAME 
Dying Light proved to be a great zombie game, and the sequel will only build on this even more. Plot advancements, combat gameplay, and the world should give you everything you need to get out there and take on the undead. 

The game will also feature a Left 4 Dead 2 crossover, including using a guitar as a weapon to kill zombies.

It was previously scheduled for spring 2020, but it was delayed in January and right now there is no fixed release date, although we hope we will still see it sometime this year.

17. Age of Empires 4

  • Platforms: PC
  • Release date: Unknown
After remastering the original Age of Empires in 4K, Microsoft has recruited RTS Relic legends to advance the franchise with Age of Empires IV. 

We don't know much about it yet, including when it will come out, but we expect a classic historical strategy with confirmed armies, including the English and the Mongols.

18. Skull and Bones

  • Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
  • Release date: Unknown
Do you remember how great naval combat was in Assassin's Creed: Black Flag? Well, this essentially expands into a full game in its own right as you lead a pirate crew in the Indian Ocean with your own customizable ship. 

There will be both single-player and 5v5 multiplayer when the game comes to light.

19. Beyond Good and Evil 2

  • Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
  • Release date: Unknown
  • Reserve: GAME
This long-awaited follow-up to the cult action RPG classic has been in development for years, and it's pretty clear creator Michael Ancel is being nothing short of ambitious with the sequel. 

There are many things that are still unknown, but confirmed details include that it is technically a prequel, will have a seamless open world with an entire star system to explore, and will include both ground action and controllable spaceships.

20. Devil 4

  • Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
  • Release date: Unknown
  • Reserve it: GAME
Finally revealed after years of leaks and rumors, it's no surprise that Blizzard is working on a fourth Diablo game. Established years after Diablo 3, it includes a new Big Bad - Lilith - and five classes at launch, including the Enchantress, Barbara, and Druid. 

There will be both single and multiplayer gameplay, though it's all online, with dedicated areas of the huge world map open for PvP combat as well.

21. Overwatch 2

  • Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, Switch, PC
  • Release date: Unknown
  • Pre-order: GAME
Overwatch 2 marks a shift in focus in the series, with a greater emphasis on PvE modes that have proven popular in the base game, and less so in the 6v6 multiplayer combat where it became famous. 

Expect new maps, loot, and customization options as all the loot you've already earned in the first game will carry over to even the second title, and many of the new game updates will even carry over to the first Overwatch.


22. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

  • Platforms: Switch
  • Release date: Unknown
Breath of the Wild is still the best game on The Switch, and one of the best of the decade, period, so we were very relieved when Nintendo announced a sequel at E3 2019. 

We don't know when it will come out, or what to expect, but fans are hoping that Zelda herself will be playable in some way and that it will be as radical and bizarre a follow-up as Majora's Mask was to Ocarina of Time long ago.

23. Metroid Prime 4

  • Platforms: Switch
  • Release date: Unknown
We hardly know anything about Metroid Prime 4, but that won't stop us from getting excited. The first time it was announced was in 2017, in 2019 Nintendo announced that it was starting from scratch and that it was moving the Bandai Namco game to the original series by Retro Studios. 

The original Prime trilogy was absolutely phenomenal, so we have high hopes for Game 4, but we know we can still wait a bit.

24. BioShock 4

  • Platforms: Unknown
  • Release date: Unknown
We don't know much about BioShock 4, and there is no trailer yet. But it's coming, and that's something. The 2K publisher created a completely new studio, Cloud Chamber, to develop the title, which has been running for a couple of years now. 

Original creator Ken Levine isn't involved, but he didn't touch BioShock 2 either, and that was unexpectedly brilliant.

25. Grand Theft Auto 6

  • Platforms: Unknown
  • Release date: Unknown
We don't know anything concrete about GTA 6 except that Rockstar is definitely working on it. Rumor has it that there will be a return to Vice City, potentially alongside an established section in South America. 

There has been talking that it might be smaller than GTA 5 rather than larger, a response to the study's problems, along with some speculation that it might not come out until 2023.
