2016 and 2017 PC Game Release Dates List

2016 and 2017 PC Game Release Dates List

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.

Pro Basketball Manager (Cyanide): 13 January

      I just want to see the announcement for CIV VI.

      • Paul Younger

        If it appears it will be added 🙂

    • hapsiainen

      How about Paradox Interactive: Stellaris ?

      Star Citizen PU and Squadron 42 could be separated as well.

      • Paul Younger

        Star Citizen we will shift around throughout the year should Squadron 42 get released in 2016. Stellaris has been added though, not sure how we missed that.

    • Avioto

      Great list, looks like 2016 could be quite special 🙂 There’s a small error in the Black Desert bit, it says 2015 instead of 2016 😉

    • Johnny Spartacus

      ATS, Dark souls 3, deus ex and torment im waiting the most

    • Redglyph

      Great, great news about Dishonored!

    • Waswat

      Holy crap, good work here. This might actually be pretty useful till quite a bit into 2016 for me.

    • MightyMax

      Thanks a lot to the team at PC Invasion for making this list. It’s been bookmarked since Day 1 and will be my reference all year long!

      • Paul Younger

        Thanks MightyMax. We’ll be keeping it right up to date.

    • Martin

      Looking forward to the most: Cuphead, Alekhine’s Gun (formerly known as Death To Spies 3) and Kingdom Come.

    • https://www.pcinvasion.com Peter Parrish

      This has been updated with all the E3 shenanigans, and given a bit of love in general (lots of games moved from 2016 to 2017, put in their correct release slot, deleted if they were cancelled, etc).


      Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late (Arc System Works): Summer 2016 OK, But summer is on 3 months!!! please tell me what month UNIB will be released!!!!

      • https://www.pcinvasion.com Peter Parrish

        Hey Rodrigo. That’s the best info we have at the moment, sorry! The source on that is Arc System’s own site saying they have five games planned for a Steam release “by Summer 2016” (including Under Night) – https://arcsystemworksu.com/arc-system-works-releasing-5-titles-on-steam-by-summer-2016/

        Haven’t heard any updates beyond that; though obviously some of those games did come out on PC already, so they’re working through the list!

        • RODRIGO ST

          Ok only remains wait. And i will 🙁 Thanks for your attention

    • Danyllo

      Honestly now I wait for one of the most important game for me on the world: World of Warcraft: Legion! It will be awesome.

    • Ambreen Ayaz

      Great list, looks like 2016 could be quite special 🙂 There’s a small error in the Black Desert bit, it says 2015 instead of 20162

    • Tfuxu
    • David Warschauer

      unless i missed it, you forgot sudden strike 2.

    • Fatty

      Cant wait for Elex and for Hitman to be released in a bundle. Also I think there is a mistake. SGW 3 release date has been moved to April 2017 – I think you have even wrote an article on that. I also have high expectations towards SGW 3. Hopefully the game will be great

    • Rafoca

      I think Hellraid will never see the light of day 🙁
