Welcome to the PC Game Release Date List for 2015/16 for May 2015 onwards. This is unlikely to cover every upcoming PC game of 2015 (because it’s impossible to keep track of everything when about 40 games come out on Steam every ten minutes.) But we’ve done our best, and this is the stuff you’re most likely to see covered on PC Invasion in the coming year from June 2015 onwards. As always, comments are welcome – we’ll add any glaring omissions and this list will be continually updated throughout 2015 with revised dates and new titles.
Now updated for a post-E3 2015 world!
Last updated: 6 December 2015
Project Cars (Slightly Mad): 7 May
I’m fairly confident this is going to be a game about cars. Slightly Mad’s serious driving sim is due in November at some point. Actually, wait, it’s now been bumped to March 2015. OH WAIT, now it’s in April. Just kidding, it’s mid-May now. It’ll come out eventually. Probably.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (CD Projekt Red): 19 May
Another game that was officially pushed to 2015 and then delayed from a February release to May. The Witcher 3 puts Geralt in an open world for the first time, so it’ll be fascinating to see how CD Projekt Red reconcile the series’ traditionally rather tight narrative with the more free-form possibilities presented by an unrestricted world. No matter how that all turns out, PC RPG fans are likely to have this on their watch list.
Sunset (Tale of Tales): 21 May
A fictional 1970s South American city serves as the backdrop to this first-person, narrative-driven affair. You take the role of Angela Burnes, housekeeper and stranded American tourist. Your employer, Gabriel Ortega, is part of a rebellious plot against dictator Generalísimo Ricardo Miraflores. It’s by Tale of Tales so expect ART.
Magicka 2 (Arrowhead): 26 May
Spellcasting sequel that promises more co-op chaos and none-vampyric vampires.
Heroes of the Storm (Blizzard): 2015 (Closed beta started January 2015 / Open beta now active)
Blizzard’s MOBA goes into closed beta in January, so it’s conceivable that the game will be released later in 2015.
