We’ve come to the end of a very tumultuous year. December 2020’s PC game releases will cap things off for the winter and holidays thanks to titles such as Cyberpunk 2077, Empire of Sin, Worms Rumble, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, Twin Mirror, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and many more. Likewise, we’ve included titles that are still slated to release in Q4 2020, though changes might occur in due time.
