    PC Game Release Date List by Month / Date

    Update:  The New 2017 – 2018 release date list is now live!


    reviewed-and-updatedWelcome to the PC Game Release Date List for 2016/17 for January 2016 onwards. This is unlikely to cover every upcoming PC game of 2016 (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 be keeping an eye on.

    As always, comments are welcome – we’ll add any glaring omissions and this list will be continually updated throughout 2016 with revised dates and new titles. At times we’ll have to guess, speculate, or infer possible release dates (for example, if a game just went into closed alpha in late 2016, it’s probably going to appear 2017 or later); when this is the case, we’ll tell you in the text.

    This list is continually updated by the PC Invasion team.

    Last updated: 7 December 2016.
