Best New Games in 2021: 54 of the Most Anticipated Releases

This is the part where I write an introduction about how 2020 was a tough year for everyone but here’s to 2021 even though realistically it will probably be just as shite if not more so. On the more positive side, there’s some genuinely cracking games to look forward this year and we’ve picked out 54 of the most anticipated titles on people’s radars.

Check out our 98 minute video extravanganza above of pure, no commentary trailers with all the fat trimmed. Or, for a quick written list, keep scrolling for all the games ordered by their (expected) release date at the time of upload. Game titles link to the relevant trailer.

Note that inevitably some of these release dates and platforms will have changed since this was posted.
