Last December’s content drops brought us a slew of titles such as Cyberpunk 2077, Empire of Sin, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, Twin Mirror, and many others. But, that was then, and this is now. We greet this brand new year with January 2021’s PC game releases which include Hitman 3, Yakuza Remastered Collection, The Medium, and more.
To clarify, since it’s still fairly early in the year, additional games might be announced or released in due course once developers and publishers are done with the holidays. We’ll continue to update this article with more information later on.
