50 Upcoming Games of 2020: The Most Anticipated

With E3 2019 behind us and the summer beginning, it is time to start looking forward to 2020! Every year after E3, we put together a mega list of our most anticipated upcoming games for the next year. Here, we’ve compiled a list of the 50 most anticipated upcoming games of 2020.

With a new PlayStation and Xbox slated to come out in late 2020, next year is undeniably going to be an exciting year in gaming. There will be plenty of new games releasing on the current generation of consoles, but also tons of awesome titles releasing on the next generation consoles that we really don’t know that much about yet!

E3 always brings tons of release date announcements, so we couldn’t think of a better time to put together this list. We will continue to update the list as new titles are announced and release dates are set (or pushed back). So, let’s get started!

Discover our 50 most anticipated upcoming games of 2020 below, and let us know which you’re looking forward to most in the comments.

The game features new movement abilities, a sequential upgrade system, and autosaves, which has been requested by fans. Let’s not forget about the incredibly well-done visuals and likely heart-wrenching story that we’re expecting to see. Hopefully, Ori and the Will of the Wisps will live up to the hype!

3 Gods and Monsters

Gods and Monsters

Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release Date: February 25, 2020 DELAYED, TBA
Platform: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Switch, Stadia
Genre: Action/Adventure

Gods and Monsters is a new Ubisoft title that is being developed by the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey team. The game gives off a Breath of the Wild feel with its art style, which has lots of fans excited. During the E3 2019 Ubisoft conference, the publisher revealed the new game and dished out a February 25, 2020 release date.

In Gods and Monsters, players will be able to encompass the power of the gods to help save them from one of the most deadly creatures in Greek mythology. The gods have given players some awesome powers to help them defeat their enemy, Typhon. Since the game was just recently announced at the time of writing this, there is still a lot that is unknown about the game, but hopefully, we will learn more soon.

Essentially, it’s going to be like a AAA, big-budget Breath of the Wild — and that’s definitely something we can get excited about.

4 Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Square Enix
Release Date: March 3, 2020
Platform: PlayStation 4
Genre: RPG

Paying homage to the original Final Fantasy VII, which released back in 1997, the Final Fantasy VII Remake is set to release on March 3, 2020. Fans have been clamoring for a remake of this beloved Final Fantasy game for years, and now the finish line is finally in sight – at least, so we thought before reading Kotaku’s hands-on impressions.

5 Watch Dogs Legion

Watch Dogs Legion

Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release Date: March 6, 2020 DELAYED, TBA
Platform: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Stadia
Genre: Action-Adventure

Perhaps one of the most exciting announcements from E3 2019, to our surprise, was Watch Dogs Legion, which was officially unveiled during the Ubisoft press conference after being leaked the week before by a well-known retailer. Watch Dogs Legion will take place in a post-Brexit London. The game will follow a London based hacker group, known as DedSec, as they try to fight the new London authority. This will be the third installment to the Watch Dogs series and it was originally slated to release on March 6, 2020 but was recently delayed, alongside a few of Ubisoft’s other upcoming games. If you weren’t previously interested in the Watch Dogs franchise before, we have a strong feeling that Legion is going to be the game that does it for you.

We also now know that the game will release after Ubisoft’s fiscal year-end (so, anytime after April 1, 2020), and give the fact that Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot noted that the delayed games will take ‘full advantage’ of the PS5 and Scarlett’s faster downloading times and improved framerates, we have a strong feeling we won’t see these games release until holiday 2020, alongside those consoles.

During the E3 Nintendo Direct, Doug Bowser announced that the game would not be finished by the anticipated 2019 release date and would have to be pushed to March 20, 2020.

Utterly ridiculous – but in a good way!

After being in development for a while, System Shock was put on hold in February 2018 while Nightdive reassesses its directions and goals. The development has since picked back up and will hopefully go smoothly until release.

In System Shock, players will play as a renowned hacker who is considered by many to be the best in the business. However, after a hack goes wrong, you find yourself indebted to a greedy executive.

The Last of Us Part II

Developer: Naughty Dog
Publisher: Sony
Release Date: February 21, 2020 Delayed to May 29, 2020
Platform: PlayStation 4
Genre: Action-Adventure/Horror/Survival

The Last of Us Part II was announced during a PlayStation event in December 2016 and is set to release sometime in Q1 2020. Serving as a sequel to the popular 2013 PlayStation exclusive – which, by the way, is on our list of the best zombie games of all-time – the game will take place 5 years after the events of its predecessor and follow the story of an older version of the main character, Ellie (which we now know is the only playable character this time around).

The Last of Us was one of the most beloved PlayStation exclusives of the PlayStation 4 generation, so there is no denying the hype levels for the upcoming sequel. Fans haven’t heard much about the game since the very strange Sony E3 2018 conference. With Sony skipping out on E3 2019, it seems that some news about The Last of Us 2 should be just around the corner, hopefully in the form of an official release date!

19 Dying Light 2

Dying Light 2

Developer: Techland
Publisher: Techland
Release Date: Q2 2020
Platform: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC
Genre: Action-Adventure/FPS

Serving as a sequel to the 2015 game, Dying Light, Dying Light 2 is set to release in Q2 2020. Originally announced at E3 2018, the sequel will follow the story of a protagonist named Aiden Caldwell.

Throughout the game, players will have to make a series of choices, each which have unforeseen consequences. Like it’s predecessor, Dying Light 2 will have parkour and other similar gameplay mechanics. The release of Dying Light 2 is still around a year away at the time this article was written, so I can’t imagine an official release date will be announced for a few more months.

However, there are plenty of reasons to be excited about this sequel. For one, the map size is 4x larger than the original game’s map; that means more areas to explore and more people to meet. Secondly, Techland promises to support Dying Light 2 for years, even after the next generation of consoles begin.

20 Minecraft Dungeons

Minecraft Dungeons

Developer: Mojang
Publisher: Mojang
Release Date: Q2 2020
Platform: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Switch
Genre: Action/Adventure

Minecraft Dungeons is a bit different than your traditional Minecraft title, as there is no building, crushing, or crafting. Instead, the game will feature dungeon crawling, with dungeons filled full of traps, monsters, puzzles, and treasures.

Minecraft Dungeons was announced in September 2018 and got an official release window during E3 2019. This is one of many spin off games from the Minecraft series. However, it is in a league of its own as Minecraft is concerned, since it is a dungeon crawler. Unfortunately, fans will have to wait for Q2 2020 to find out just how different Minecraft Dungeons will be!

This turn-based combat game is set in an apocalyptic version of Colorado. Those who backed the game during its crowdfunding phase will be able to get their hands on it a little bit early. Unfortunately, the rest of us will have to wait until Q2 2020 to play.

Genre: MMO/RPG

Initially released in Japan around eight years ago, Phantasy Star Online 2 is heading West sometime in Q2 2020. Phantasy Star Online 2 is an MMO/RPG where players can explore the world with their friends or by themselves. Fighting battles, collecting photons, and leveling up are just a few of the things that players will be able to do in Phantasy Star Online 2.

A bit of confusion left fans thinking that Phantasy Star Online 2 would be an Xbox exclusive. However, at E3 2019, it was confirmed that Phantasy Star Online 2 would, in fact, be coming to all current generation platforms. While we don’t exactly when, we can expect Phantasy Star Online 2 to release around this time next year.

Outriders is a co-op shooter that is built to be played in a group up to three. It is a dark, sci-fi adventure, and features an alien life form.

24 Call of Duty: Black Ops 5

Developer: Treyarch Studios
Publisher: Activision
Release Date: Q4 2020
Platform: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC
Genre: Action/FPS

There’s a little bit of craziness surrounding the annual Call of Duty game, after Activision pulled Raven and Sledgehammer Studios off of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 development and handed it over to Treyarch Studios. An official release date hasn’t been given for Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 yet, but it is safe to assume that it will likely be coming in either October or November of 2020 (based on previous years).

Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 will be the fifth installment to the Black Ops series, which began in 2010. The first game was originally developed by Treyarch, as was the most recent game in the series, Black Ops 4. Activision typically gives the Call of Duty developers a three-year rotation between games, but it seems that Treyarch is being asked to step up a year early.

25 Monstrum 2

Monstrum 2

Developer: Team Junkfish
Publisher: Team Junkfish
Release Date: Q4 2020

Monstrum 2 will take place in a sea fortress, which will have a changing environment from game to game. Players must find the different escape routes and learn the map inside in out before they get devoured. Additionally, one way that Monstrum 2 will be different from its predecessor is that each round, a player will get to play as the monster. Monstrum 2 is set to release at the very end of 2020.

26 Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite

Developer: 343 Industries
Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
Release Date: Q4 2020

Genre: Action/FPS

The Halo series is making a grand return with the upcoming Halo Infinite, which is currently slated for Q4 2020. This will be the sixth main entry into the Halo series and the first main Halo game since 2017. Additionally, it will likely be a launch title for the next generation Xbox console. Although, it will also be released on the Xbox One.

Halo Infinite will continue the story of Master Chief and will follow the events of Halo 5 Guardians. A lot of Halo fans were disappointed that Halo 5 didn’t focus on the Master Chief story very much, so developers have made sure to give fans what they want in Halo Infinite. Unfortunately, this is really all we know about it at the moment, but more information will come to light as we get closer to the end of 2020.

The cult classic Destroy All Humans is getting a much-deserved remake in 2020, and we’re pretty stoked about it. THQ Nordic announced the remake just before E3 2019, exciting fans of the series.

The Destroy All Humans remake will be working with the original voice actors to bring back the witty humor of the original game. In the remake, players will be able to combine their psychokinetic powers with their alien weapons to cause some major havoc. Unfortunately, players have to wait until 2020 to do it.

Now, if you’re one of those who aren’t big on remakes, you might want to check out the original Destroy All Humans on PSN right now and then get back to us – while the core gameplay holds up, nothing else does.

Genre: RPG

Despite being rumored to be in development for many years, Dragon Age 4 was finally revealed at the Game Awards in 2018. While it isn’t technically confirmed that Dragon Age 4 will be coming in 2020, it seems that with this generation coming to a close and the next generation kicking off in 2020, Dragon Age 4 will likely be released in 2020. So far, there hasn’t been very much information shared about Dragon Age 4, so it’s hard to say too much more about it. For now, we will just have to sit back, wait, and see what happens.

The development of Dragon Age 4 has, ultimately, been a hot mess, but if you want to read up on the latest regarding the upcoming RPG, check out Techradar’s info dump.

It is set in an open world and will take place one generation prior to the events of Beyond Good & Evil.

Players will start the game at the bottom of the social system and must complete various tasks to rise up the ranks. Players can visit different planets, complete tasks, gain technology, and improve their status. There is still a lot unknown about the game, but hopefully, the upcoming beta will help answer some of our questions.
