PC Game Release Date List 2017 – 2018

PC Game Release Date List 2017 – 2018

PC Game Release Date List 2017 – 2018 by Month / Date

Update: The new 2018- 2019 Release Sate List is now Live

Bookmark this pageWelcome to the PC Game Release Date List 2017/18 for January 2017 onwards. Whether you are looking for new PC games or games released so far in 2017, this is the list for you.

This is unlikely to cover every upcoming PC game of 2017 (because it’s impossible to keep track of everything these days, given that 38% of all the games on Steam were released in 2016.) But we’ve done our best, and this is the stuff you (and we) are 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 2017 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 2017, it’s probably going to appear 2018 or later); when this is the case, we’ll tell you in the text.

This list is continually updated by the PC Invasion team with titles being added and dates being changed.

Last updated: 12 December 2017.

January


Pit People (The Behemoth): 13 January (Early Access)

Steam

Battleblock Theater and Castle Crashers have done awfully well for Behemoth and Pit People is their new “fast-paced turn-based, co-op adventure” which they describe as a “strategy game of positioning”. Due to appear in Early Access in January.

 

Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach (Slitherine): 19 January

It’s Space Wolves vs Orks in this Slitherine rendition of the classic tabletop campaign.

 

Stars in Shadow (Ashdar Games): 19 January

Another 4x strategy game takes on the legacy of Masters of Orion 2. Will this be the one to take that crown?

How to Shoot A Criminal (Pandorica): 20 January

Live-action footage meets media archives, as you attempt to bring down The Revenge and its corrupt editor-in-chief from within. It’s set in a 1930s New York where everybody speaks French.

Resident Evil 7 (Capcom): 24 January

Announced during Sony’s E3 2016 press event, but confirmed for PC shortly afterward. Resident Evil 7 is set in modern-day, rural America, and takes place after the events of Resident Evil 6. They’re using a new ‘RE Engine’ for this one.

 

Memoranda (Bit Byterz): 25 January

Steam

A point and click adventure game about forgetting and being forgotten that tells the story of a young lady who is forgetting her own name.

 

Tales of Berseria (Bandai Namco): 24/27 January 2017

The PC will be getting Tales of Berseria, the upcoming entry in the Tales series of JRPGs. We got Tales of Zestiria recently, so presumably that sold well enough on Steam to merit this release. It’s due out in Japan some time in 2016, with the western localisation release set for 24 January in the US and 27 January in Europe.

 

Disgaea 2 (Nis America): 30 January

Steam

Disgaea 2 comes to the PC and includes Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories and Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days. One for strategic RPG fans.

 

Conan Exiles (Funcom): 31 January Early Access

Steam

Funcom returns to the Conan world of Hyboria with a new survival game. Expect building, crafting, hunting and all that survival stuff.

 

Hitman Season 1 (IO Interactive): 31 January

Steam

Hitman is being released as an episodic title, and is so far (some online-only rubbish notwithstanding) well on its way to competing with Blood Money for the best in series badge. But if you’re wondering when all the episodes will be complete and the full game can be (physically) purchased in one go, it’s 31 January 2017.

February


Diluvion (Arachnid Games): 2 February

Steam

Diluvion from Arachnid Games will transport players to an undersea world to captain subs while exploring and surviving the depths. Players will find themselves trapped in a world that has been forced underwater following the Great Flood. Noe stuck under a sheet of ice, humanity is fighting for survival.

Phoning Home (Ion Lands): 7 February

Open-world exploration title in which a pair of robots (ION and ANI) are stranded on a strange planet and need to, well, phone home.

Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book (GUST): 7 February

Young novice Alchemist Sophie Neuenmuller finds a book imbued with a soul, and hijinx presumably ensue. Originally released on PS4, this GUST title is one of two coming to Steam on 7 February.

Nights of Azure (GUST): 7 February

The other GUST RPG heading for Steam in February (like Atelier Sophie, above). This one looks like it’s firmly in the teenaged anime ladies fight demons genre.

[email protected] (Rising Star Games): 9 February

ASCII-themed 3D dungeoneering action. Previously on the PS4, but now coming to the PC in February.

Alone With You (Benjamin Rivers Inc): 9 February

For Honor (Ubisoft): 14 February

Steam

Ubisoft’s hot third-person viking on samurai on knight multiplayer action title got a Valentine’s Day release date at E3 2016. It has a single player campaign too. They’ll no doubt be a beta ahead of release.

Sniper Elite 4 (Rebellion): 14 February

Steam

Another title hoping to get lover’s hearts pumping on Valentine’s Day. This sequel is set after Sniper Elite 3, a game which we rather enjoyed. Players are being transported to Italy in 1943 and elite marksman Karl Fairburne also returns to take down those damn Nazis.

Realpolitiks (Jujubee Games Studio): 17 February

Become the glorious leader of any contemporary nation in this upcoming geopolitical strategy title. Use your country’s economic and military power to expand or protect your interests. Apparently “democracy, authoritarianism [and] totalitarianism” will be your options. No socialism? 0/10 mate.

Night in the Woods (Infinite Fall): 21 February

Mae the cat returns to her home town of Possum Springs after dropping out of college. A study in mental illness and the stagnation of social mobility, via anthropomorphic animals and paranormal powers.

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk (Tecmo Koei): 21 February

Musou-styled (think Dynasty Warriors) version of the popular Berserk manga/animated trilogy. Will cover the ‘Golden Age’ and ‘Hawk of the Millenium’ arcs.

Halo Wars 2 (Creative Assembly): 21 February – Windows 10 only

Real-time strategy sequel heading the way of Windows 10. The forces from a little-known series called Halo do battle.

Torment Tides of Numenera (InXile): 28 February

Torment: Tides of Numenera is the Kickstarted RPG that’s been promised as a spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment. That’s quite a big deal, as Planescape: Torment is one of the most special and unique RPGs we’ve ever seen.

Semispheres (Vivid Helix): February

Control two spherical avatars at once across blue and orange worlds in what appears to be the puzzle game equivalent of rubbing your stomach and patting your head at the same time.

      Probably just a typo, but Lego Worlds was definitely available in June 2015, not 16, because that’s when I bought it. The Benoît Sokal game Syberia 3 is expected Q1 2017. Nice to see The Mandate up on the list, looking forward to playing it after kickstarting it! And as for kickstarters, as a very happy Star Citizen backer since 2012 I’ll commend you for mentioning it without giving it an unrealistic(ally early) launch date. It’ll be done when it’s done, which is part of what sets it apart from most other big games these days.

      • Paul Younger

        Yeh 2015 it was, and sorted! Thanks. SC is done when it’s done 🙂

    • Railbydefault

      Expeditions: Vikings definitely on my watch list.

    • Asterick

      I have windows 10 but i still hate reading that a game is windows 10 exclusive just sounds wrong on pc.

    • samplerico

      Death’s Gambit looks super!

    • Treefella

      Did I scroll past Mount & Blade: Bannerlords or has it slipped?

    • Asgard

      How about making separate AA-AAA and crapware lists? Would be much easier to follow.

      • Paul Younger

        The problem with that is, one man’s AAA list is another’s crapware list. With so many games coming out each week on Steam, a lot of them garbage, we have kept this list reasonable we think.

        • Asgard

          “A AAA game, or pronounced “triple-A game”, is generally a title developed by a large studio, funded by a massive budget.”

          And “massive” here means “multi-million dollar”. It has nothing to do with self preference. But I get your point.

          • Paul Younger

            There are some great indie games with small budgets that are just as good as something from EA. Sure it’s rare but there are the odd gems that deserve as much attention. I feel that splitting them off would not do those particular titles any credit.

            As we don’t know which game will actually be good or bad the way the list is right now tackles that problem. I get what you mean though.

            • AnimeJon

              I would say in the case of EA. THEY SUCK. They have ruined almost every game they have bought out and their in house games blow as well.

    • Atica Ahsan

      Published here Very informative content to activate my product, Anyway Windows, office, server, visual express, idm etc. products may activate using oem product key, which can be buy from ODosta Store
      As I recently bought Windows 10 Product key to upgrade my Windows 8.1 PC, Which worked perfectly. That’s why I want to recommend this site with other guys, Which is offering so cheap license keys. You can also get windows and other product keys from ODosta Store.

    • Ossi Hurme

      Kingdom Come is only one I’m really waiting. Interested to see how Pamela turns out though.

    • Matthew Wilkinson

      Hellraid was cancelled ages ago.

      • Paul Younger

        It’s apparently on hold but as far as we know not cancelled. It was being reworked. Whether it makes it out is debatable but apparently it’s still a thing.

    • https://www.youtube.com/GamesTunnel/ GamesTunnel

      Oh! There are few great games, but I still got so many old ones I missed.

    • Hussain Ali

      Paul, there is one major release missing here: Middle-earth Shadow of War (what a generic title, they could have called it War of Mordor or something) releasing August 22.

      One of my most anticipated titles this year. Here’s hoping it doesn’t get delayed.

      • pcinvasion

        Oops I thought Peter had added that. I will make sure it’s there. Cheers.

        • Hussain Ali

          Happy to help 🙂

    • francis

      I wouldn’t play not one single title in this list for free. Looks like the next two years are going to be spent not playing games and doing something else. Guess I’ll pick up a new hobby like softball or something.

    • Hibiki Laytis

      Funny how you didn’t even include NBA 2k18 on September.

    • David Hewitt

      Is shadow of mordor and Assassins Creed basically the same game play style?

      • Mooki

        No not really. It has some similarities in its open world set up but plays way differently and is a lot more enjoyable to play imo.

        I tried almost all AC’s. I never managed to force myself to finish one,

    • samplerico

      Spellforce 3 description is wrong, and it would be apreciated if you put the genre of the game too and maybe a link for more in deep info. Besides that and some mising launches, good list. Keep up the good work!

      • Paul Younger

        Thanks for the note there. Description sorted. We have talked about adding extra stuff and we’ll see what we can do with that. As you can appreciate it’s quite time consuming 🙂

    • Kay Donovan

      Nothing in this lists excites me. Literally nothing. how sad is that when i’m a devoted games since I was about 8? It’s the sequeaky clean boring didactically safe content that’s everywhere these days. Just like with Youtube and its gun video ban. Soon, soon they’ll stop making action games with violence and turn Mortal Combat into lamer Street Fighter.

      The only thing in the recent top lists is Divinity, and even that’s not great, but just good. Still, it has some imagination behind it and some rugged gritty elements missing in the modern blockbuster games. I wonder whi it isn’t banned, it’s problematic AF.
