2020 is finally here so let’s start marking our calendars of some of the upcoming titles slated to launch. There is already a ton of great anticipated video games which we have listed below. You will want to keep this page bookmarked as we’ll continue to update it with new video games as they are announced.

1-Minecraft: Dungeons

  • Developer: Mojang
  • Publisher: Mojang
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online Only 4 Players
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

A brand new game will be set in the world of Minecraft. Developed under Mojang, players can expect Minecraft: Dungeons to release at some point this year. Not too many details were given out so far but we know that this will be a dungeon crawling experience. Players will be able to join together and venture through new locations along with environments. It appears that Mojang is also bringing out new weapons and items for players to make use of when they start their adventure. Currently, there is no specific release date attached to the project yet, but we can expect to enjoy the game within this year for the PC. It’s uncertain if Mojang will have the game available on any other platforms, but we will, of course, keep track of the latest when more details are released to the public.

2-Psychonauts 2

  • Developer: Double Fine Productions
  • Publisher: Starbreeze Studios
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Fans of the original Psychonauts video game can rejoice as the title will finally receive the much desired sequel likely next year. The video game will be following the events of the first title but also the events from the recently released, Psychonauts in the Rhombus Ruin which was a VR title that aims to bridge the first game and the sequel. Little is known about the upcoming Psychonauts 2 video game, though players will still take on the role of Raz with his Psi-Powers. Likewise, the narrative journey may open up some doors to the history of not only Raz but his family.

3-Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories

  • Developer: Granzella
  • Publisher: Granzella, NIS America
  • Platforms: PS4, NS, PC
  • Release: April 7, 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

The Disaster Report series has a pretty big following, but it was uncertain for gamers worldwide on if we would even see a release of a fourth mainline installment. While these games were developed in Japan, the ports that managed to get release into other markets found that players really do enjoy a game based around surviving harsh environment disasters. However, during the development of Disaster Report 4, Japan was hit with its own natural disaster with the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Development was at first hit with a delay which was followed up with a cancellation. That didn’t last too long as the development team opted to bring it back after fan reception.

Now we have Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories which follows a protagonist that enters a city for a job interview. Unfortunately, the interview was cut short as the city was hit with a major earthquake. With panic and destruction everywhere, players must navigate the debris in order to reach safety. However, along the way, players will encounter several events and characters that will require a specific choice to be selected. Depending on your choices will ultimately alter some of the actions and events following after.

4-Chivalry 2

  • Developer: Torn Banner Studios
  • Publisher: Tripwire Interactive
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Online

For fans that enjoy a good gritty medieval combat video game will likely remember Chivalry fondly. It was a 2012 hack-and-slash title that focused on medieval warfare and in 2020 fans will enjoy a sequel. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare 2 will offer exactly what gamers would expect from the IP. This is a multiplayer-focused FPS medieval hack-and-slash game with the support of up to 64 players in a battle. The clash of swords, flaming arrows, castle sieges and more are all said to come packed in with this gameplay experience.

Developers have event taken a keen approach in delivering a gameplay experience that would mimic big cinematic battles. It’s clear that there is certainly a market for these games still after the success of Mordhau in 2019, which offered a very similar experience to Chivalry. We don’t have a specific release date yet for the game outside of being available sometime in 2020. With that said, it does look like we’ll see Chivalry 2 release exclusively for a year on the Epic Games Store.

5-Skull & Bones

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online Only 4 Players
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

Ubisoft did a fantastic job when it came to portraying a pirate’s life on the sea in their Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag installment. Taking most of the gameplay mechanics from the game, Ubisoft is gearing up for their next pirate-themed video game, Skull & Bones. Within the game, players will be set out in the open seas in order to track down profitable ships to battle and loot.

Players will take control as the captain as you steer the ship in rough waters while calling out shots to be fired at your target. There is also a bit of strategy to the game with ship upgrade capabilities and what appears to be a companion level progression for other pirate crews.

6-The Elder Scrolls VI

  • Developer: Bethesda
  • Publisher: Bethesda
  • Platforms: TBA
  • Release: TBA
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Multiplayer: TBA

After years of dealing with releases of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda made the announcement at E3 2018 that the next iteration of the franchise is in development. The problem here is that we have practically no information at all about the game. Bethesda didn’t offer any details but instead stated that the next installment to The Elder Scrolls franchise will be a next-generation game and will release after their newest upcoming IP, Starfield. It’s likely that this game won’t release this year but crazier things have happened. Likewise, it’s highly unlikely the title will launch on current generation platforms, outside of PC, as Bethesda has spoken of both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI is a next-generation title. If by chance this RPG hits into the market this year we’ll update this post with new information.

7-12 Minutes 

  • Developer: Luis Antonio 
  • Publisher: Annapurna Interactive
  • Platforms: PC, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

12 Minutes is a unique indie adventure game. Players follow a story set in an apartment from a top-down perspective. Players take the role of a husband who learns that his wife is pregnant. Shortly after a cop bursts into the home, claims that your wife had murdered his father and then kills your wife. Afterward, the game resets back and you replay the twelve-minute adventure all over again. The goal is to figure out what is going on with the narrative along with how to solve the campaign amidst the mass chaos. As the title suggests, this game is played in a twelve-minute time loop so you’ll have just enough time to hopefully make enough changes.

8-Humankind

  • Developer: Amplitude Studios
  • Publisher: Sega
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

Humankind is a Civilization style video game title. Players will be shaping humanity from the Neolithic era and tweaking them until they reach the modern-day. It seems that the human race can be tweaked and there will be over fifty different cultures to make use of. We didn’t get too many details so far about this game from its announcement at Gamescom, but it does seem that there will be some combat elements as well and that players can find discoveries to help aid in your adventure.

Currently, Humankind is a new title that is not slated to release until sometime in 2020 for the PC platform. Being a brand new AAA video game IP we’ll likely see plenty more about the title from Sega leading up to its release and just how it will differ from some of the other similar franchises already in the market.

9-Age of Empires IV

  • Developer: Relic Entertainment
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: TBA
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

If you’re a fan of the Age of Empires franchise then you can prepare for a new installment coming out from developers Relic Entertainment. Unfortunately, things are very tight-lipped when it comes to the video game installment, but Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has stated that the game is making good progress as developers continue to tweak the game before really being shown off. We’re also not entirely sure of just what factions are being brought into the game as previous footage showcased a wide range of armies from previous video game installments. This could just be a means to signify how far the game series has come.

10-Cyberpunk 2077

  • Developer: CD Projekt Red
  • Publisher: CD Projekt
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: April 16, 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive: Post-Launch

Ever since its announcement, there have been gamers around the world who are excited to see Cyberpunk 2077 launch into the market. This video game comes from the development team, CD Projekt Red, who got their worldwide fame after the success they had with The Witcher trilogy. Now that the developers had wrapped up the trilogy their new focus is on the next IP video game adaptation. Cyberpunk 2077 is still an open world RPG but unlike The Witcher, this game takes place years into the future where crime and greed rule the world.

We know that this game will put players into the role of a mercenary named V who takes on odd jobs in order to build up his or her street cred. The higher your street cred the more lucrative your jobs will become. This game features a rather lived in a world so far from the gameplay footage shown off, but with that said, we’re still waiting to see more of the fine details on what exactly you can expect exploring the in-game world. One element that you may find of interest is the choices the developers will present players throughout the campaign and situations. It seems that missions are set up in a way that allows players to decide on how to actually accomplish them. Furthermore, depending on your choices and actions, gamers will receive multiple different endings giving an incentive to go back and replay the game.
