If you're looking for a list of all the new games coming out in 2021, we’ve got you covered. The first half of 2021 was relatively quiet for new games releases. But that’s all changed now we’re approaching the end of the year. More and more big hitters are being confirmed for release sometime in 2021, including the likes of Halo Infinite, Battlefield 2042 and Far Cry 6 as well as many more.

It’s already proved to be an exciting year for gaming as developers are pushing the power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X. However, it's not only the next-gen console owners who will have all the fun this year. The Nintendo Switch is likely to have another strong year, with some highly-anticipated releases on the way to the handheld console - and to the updated Switch OLED too. 

What’s more, streaming services like Amazon Luna are also set to improve in 2021, and of course, let’s not forget about PC gaming, which continues to set the standard in both hardware power and flexibility.

We know it can be challenging to keep track of which upcoming games are being released and when you can expect them. That’s why we've created this guide – which we regularly update – filled with the new games coming out in 2021 and beyond, so you always know what's on the horizon. 

Make sure you check out our dedicated release date lists too, which cover the new PS5 games and new Xbox Series X games, as well as our best PC gaming list. If you’re on a budget and desperate for a new game, take a look at our best free games on Steam, and best free PC games picks.
