release date of upcoming games
release date of upcoming games

Year 2023 came to an end and throughout it gaming had its ups and downs. We had inspiring success stories like the final release of Baldur’s Gate 3, but we were also let down with the latest Call of Duty Modern Warfare campaign or The Day Before taking advantage of the players’ excitement.

However, instead of talking about the games of 2023, we shift our gaze towards the future and what upcoming games we can look forward to.

What are we excited to play in 2024?

The roster of titles being released in 2024 is shaping up to fit the taste of all kinds of gamers. From the new and promising IPs to returning fan-favorites, each genre with strong contenders to take over your free time and disk space. No matter whether you play on your PC, Playstation, Xbox, or Switch, you can be sure that at least some of the listed titles will capture your attention.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown – 18 January 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, PS4, XBOX Series X/S, XBOX ONE, Nintendo Switch

The first big release of the year sees the return of the long absent Prince of Persia. The new entry goes back to the roots of the series, bringing back the side-scrolling platform gameplay from the 2D era and time manipulation from later chapters, with all that supplemented by Metroidvania elements. You can explore the Persian-inspired land of Mount Qaf, playing as Sargon on a quest to find the lost prince. The developers behind the new Prince of Persia earlier worked for Rayman games, so they are veterans when it comes to crafting platform games.

Tekken 8 – 26 January 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBOX Series X/S

In 2023, two out of the three big fighting franchises showed off their fighters – Mortal Kombat 1 and Street Fighter 6. Now Tekken is a bit late to the party, but it seems like it packs quite a punch. One advantage it has over its rivals is the presentation, since after transitioning to the Unreal Engine the graphics look better than ever. Tekken 8 also promises a new chapter in the story, this time centered around Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama, along with new gameplay mechanics.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth – 26 January 2024

Platforms: PS5, PS4, XBOX Series X/S, XBOX ONE, PC

Infinite Wealth is a direct sequel to 2020’s Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which, in an unexpected turn, for the first time in the history of the series will take place outside of Japan, in the United States to be precise. That is about all we know regarding the new adventures of Kasuga Ichiban and Kazuma Kiryu. The first trailer for Infinite Wealth only shows Ichiban waking naked up a beach somewhere in the Land of the Free.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink – 1 February 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, PS4

The developer Cygames brings the Granblue Fantasy IP to PCs and Playstation. The game is an action-oriented RPG with up to four players working together. What can we expect? Distinct anime art style, magic, striking characters, and lots of fights to keep all the players busy and entertained.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League – 2 February 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBOX Series X/S

The villains become heroes and have to face off against the Justice League. Rocksteady’s latest title is set in the same universe as their previous Batman Arkham trilogy games. Up to four players can team up to play as the iconic DC characters: Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang. Their goal is to take down this universe’s heroes who have been corrupted by Brainiac. Players can expect both action-centered gameplay and an engaging original story that continues the threads from the studio’s previous games.

Skull and Bones – 16 February 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBOX Series X/S

After numerous delays, on February 16 we most likely finally get the opportunity to play Skull and Bones, a new open-world pirate game from Ubisoft. Development started after the release of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag by the team that handles this game’s naval combat and exploration. Set in the 18th-century Indian Ocean, Skull and Bones focuses on player-versus-player battleship skirmishes, but will also offer a single player campaign. You can even expect to meet legendary marine creatures, like a giant kraken.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth – 29 February 2024

Platforms: PS5 (PC release date TBA)

February’s slate of games is closed off by Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, a continuation of the 2020 Final Fantasy 7 Remake that covers another chapter of 1997’s classic story. However, if you were hoping to see the finale, you will have to wait quite a bit longer as Square Enix has decided to divide the original plot into a trilogy. This means Part 3 is likely to ship in 2027 or 2028. However, this should not discourage you from choosing and enjoying FF7 Rebirth.

Dragon’s Dogma II – 22 March 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBOX Series X/S

Dragon’s Dogma skipped the 8th console generation, but now, over a decade later, it intends to make a (hopefully triumphant) return. For those unfamiliar with the title, it is a fantasy RPG directed by Hideaki Itsuno and developed by Capcom. It will also use their RE Engine, the same game engine that powered the new Resident Evil and Devil May Cry games.

Princess Peach: Showtime! – 22 March 2024

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Princess Peach rarely gets to be the main character in Mario games. This all changes on 22 March, with the release of Princess Peach: Showtime! exclusively for Switch. She will face a variety of obstacles in her quest to save a theater from closing down. The game can be described as an adorable action-adventure platformer.

Black Myth: Wukong – 20 August 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBOX Series X/S

Chinese games are not big in the West, but Black Myth: Wukong aims to change this. It adapts Chinese mythos and follows the events of the Journey to the West novel. Developers from Game Science are bringing us a truly spectacularly looking action RPG, set in a world that has so far never been explored in gaming. You will play as Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, as he writes his legend.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine – 9 September 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBOX Series X/S

Fans of the Warhammer 40,000 universe already have enjoyed some well-received games in recent years, such as Necromunda and Rouge Trader, but those were not really big-budget blockbusters. Space Marine 2 is there to fill that void. Continuing the story of 2011’s original, we can once again play as Captain Titus in his eternal fight for the Emperor of Mankind, this time facing hordes of Tyranids in a brutal action-focused game developed by Saber Interactive.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl – early 2024

Platforms: PC, XBOX Series X/S

Another classic IP making a return in 2024 is Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl. Explore and fight to survive in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone after a second explosion in the power plant’s core. A range of stalkers, mutants and anomalies are only some of the dangers that lay ahead. Reach the center of the Exclusion Zone and uncover the secrets of Chernobyl early in 2024.

Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown – early 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBOX Series X/S, Nintendo Switch

The genre of open world racers has been dominated by Forza Horizon for some years now, with The Crew series unsuccessfully trying to take a piece of that pie. In the early 2010s, however, Test Drive Unlimited was the king, and now in early 2024, it plans to retake its throne. Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown takes us to the island of Hong Kong, recreated by KT racing in a 1:1 scale, to race against other players in an open world like no other.

Hades 2 – Spring 2024, early access

Platforms: PC

After the success that was the first Hades, Supergiant is striking while the iron is hot by developing the first sequel in the studio’s history. Hades 2 will be similar in structure, but this time the main protagonist will be Melinoë, the Princess of the Underworld, who will be battling beyond the borders of the Underworld against Chronos, Titan of Time. For now, Hades 2 is launching only on PC as early access. Consoles are likely to receive their ports when the final version comes out, just like what happened with the first game.

Avowed – TBC 2024

Platforms: PC, XBOX Series X/S

The experts in RPGs from Obsidian Entertainment, since creating the sci-fi Outer Worlds, are changing direction and heading back to the fantasy world of Pillars of Eternity with their new title, Avowed. Explore a world plagued by disease through the eyes of an envoy from Aedyr.

Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga – TBC 2024

Platforms: XBOX Series X S, PC

The Hellblade sequel is likely to continue the dark motifs of the original game. We can expect superb visuals, a struggle with grief and mental illness, and an outstanding sound design with characteristic vocals. We do not know yet where Senua’s journey is going here, but it will hopefully be as memorable as the previous entry.

John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando – TBC 2024

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBOX Series X/S

The man behind the cult classic slasher Halloween joins forces with Saber Interactive to create John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando. For now, we only have a trailer oozing with black comedy and gory gameplay, but we are expecting an FPS with hordes of horror monsters to be wiped off the face of the Earth. The release window is very broad, meaning that we expect it to hit the shelves in the later part of the year at the earliest.

Games available after 2024 or without release dates

These were most of the big games being announced or coming up in 2024, but there are some other titles without a release date that are looking extra spicy. Here are some of them!

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf

BioWare is really secretive about their next project. What we do know is that it will continue the story of 2014’s Dragon Age: Inquisition, it will take place in the land of Thedas, and the titular Dreadwolf will be the main villain. A full reveal was teased for 2024, so let us hope that the game is released sometime this year.


Another promising looking RPG is the reboot Fable series. Little is known about the plot, only that it returns to the world of Albion, but we have already seen some very impressive looking snippets from the gameplay.

The Elder Scrolls 6

We know even less about the next The Elder Scrolls from Bethesda, only that it is still coming. A short trailer has teased some potential locations for the game, and that is about it. Despite that, we can hope that after the studio released Starfield, then their next project will be the sequel to Skyrim, Bethesda’s biggest hit so far.

Star Wars Outlaws

Luckily we know quite a lot more about Star Wars Outlaws, as it will be the first truly open-world Star Wars game. Set between episodes V and VI, it should be following the adventures of Kay Vass, an outlaw on her way to pulling off the biggest heist and becoming the most wanted bounty in the galaxy. With a third-person perspective, cover shooting and speeder chases are just some of the other player choices impacting the story. To learn more, check out the official gameplay reveal. Everything seems to be quite far along, so the release date must be coming up soon.

Silent Hill 2 Remake

The developers at Bloober Team, who are behind Layers of Fear and Blair Witch, are now remaking Silent Hill 2 from the ground up using Unreal Engine 5 to let us experience anew the story of James as he travels to the city of Silent Hill after receiving a letter that his wife wrote for him before she passed away. The original composer, Akira Yamaoka, and the artist, Mashiro Ito, who have both been with the series for a long time, are also attached to the project.

Marvel’s Blade

In a surprise reveal at The Game Awards 2023 we learned that Akrane Studios are working on a game with an iconic Marvel character – none other than the vampire hunter, Blade. The developer of Deathloop and Dishonored seem like a perfect fit to handle that IP, and we cannot wait to learn more about the project. Just keep your fingers crossed that Arkane has learned from their latest misstep with Redfall.

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater is the remake of the third installment in the series. That much we do know, but why Delta? We have no idea. When is it coming out? We do not know that either – but we do know that the original voices and story will return, with updated graphics and sound.

Metroid Prime 4

It is still unclear if a new Metroid game is planned as a late Nintendo Switch title, or if it ships on Nintendo’s next platform. Not much is actually known about this game, other than being revealed in 2017 as just a title and no trailer, with Nintendo remaining radio silent about their metroidvania project ever since. We can just hope that it still exists and that it is coming out sooner than later.

Hollow Knight: Silksong

The same goes for the development of Team Cherry 2017’s Hollow Knight sequel. This game has been shown quite a few times, but it just cannot seem to find a release date. Originally it was planned for 2020, but since then they have extended the scope of the project, with a new and yet familiar protagonist – Hornet, a new kingdom, new moves, tools, and traversal mechanics, plus 150 new enemies… The list just continues to grow, and fans are more eager than ever to play the latest iteration of the rich in beautifully hand-crafted graphics metroidvania about the mysterious kingdom of bugs.

Grand Theft Auto VI – 2025

And now for the last game showcased here, a true behemoth – Grand Theft Auto VI. The game was leaked earlier in the year in a rough state, but now we have an official reveal. And it is stunning! We travel to Vice City and the surrounding area of state Leonida, Rockstar’s versions of real-life Miami and Florida. The game is to feature two playable protagonists, Lucia and Jason, whose story is said to be inspired by Bonnie and Clyde. The GTA 6 release date is set for 2025, meaning that the many developers premiering their games in 2024 must have let out a huge sigh of relief that GTA VI will not be cannibalizing their sales.

Localisation matters

It is shaping up to be a great year for game releases. However, the question that needs to be asked is whether having a good game is enough for it to succeed. It is important not to forget about marketing or network infrastructure, or about game localisation. Like all aspects of a project, it can all vary in quality. Translation errors often drive away audiences in specific regions, diminishing the sales. Dedicating significant resources and having localization experts in-house is not always within the scope of many game projects, so the decision to outsource may be much more feasible.

Our team at Skrivanek is always more than happy to help you handle the localisation process for your game, to ensure that it resonates with players across the globe.
