TBA – No Confirmed Date/Year And Rumors
These are games which have been announced, are in development, or rumored to come to PCs. The only downside is that no official timetables have been provided.
Age of Empires IV (Relic Entertainment)
Details are somewhat scarce at the moment, but one thing that is known is the developer: Relic (of Homeworld, Company of Heroes fame).
Ancient Cities (Uncasual Games)
Relive the past… the very distant past, that is, in this strategy/city-building game set in the ancient era of mankind.
Atomic Heart (Mundfish): TBA
An FPS set during an alternate timeline Soviet Union with all the steampunk and high-tech flavor it can muster.
Baldur’s Gate 3 (Larian Studios)
The granddaddy of CRPGs and the kickstarter of everything that needed to get kicked has finally returned. Baldur’s Gate 3 is in development, but the release date has yet to be announced, but it’s gotten everyone excited at E3 2019. Helmed by Larian Studios, the folks behind the Divinity games, you know it’s going to be filled to the brim with RPG goodness.
Deathloop (Arkane Studios)
Are you a master of time, or a master of none? Deathloop emphasizes the combat we’ve come to expect from the creators of the Dishonored series. Judging by the reveal, it looks like something janky is going on with time itself, and we seem to be stuck in a time loop.
El Hijo (Honig Studios)
A non-violent stealth game with spaghetti-western themes.
Elden Ring (FromSoftware)
We’ve only seen bits and pieces here and there, but we do know two things:
- It’s made by the people behind Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro.
- It’s a collaboration with none other than Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin.
Are there other things, besides Keanu at E3 2019, that will make everyone release a collective gamer nerdgasm? Probably not.
The newly announced game developed by Rare is shrouded in mystery. What can be gleaned from the X019 trailer is that it’s got a mix of fantasy and adventure given strange yet familiar creatures.
Genesis Noir (Feral Cat Den)
The game’s Steam description would do it justice:
A noir adventure set before, during and after the Big Bang. Explore black holes, primordial Earth, and jazz cafes. Witness the birth and history of mankind. Find comfort in a glass of gin. Search for a way to destroy creation.
GhostWire: Tokyo (Tango Gameworks)
From the mind of Shinji Mikami — director of Resident Evil, Dino Crisis, and The Evil Within — and Tango Gameworks, comes GhostWire: Tokyo. The city’s residents are disappearing, and it’s up to you to uncover the mystery. Yet, instead of zombies and mutated monstrosities, you’ll have to deal with the supernatural beings and horrifying creatures from Japanese folklore.
Midnight Ghost Hunt (Vaulted Sky Games)
There’s a bit of spooky fun going on. Midnight Ghost Hunt will be a 4v4 prop-hunting game where spirits control said props, and ghost hunters try to find them. The roles are reversed once the clock strikes midnight.
Path of Exile 2 (Grinding Gear Games)
Recently announced during the first-ever ExileCon held in New Zealand, the sequel to the hit indie ARPG promises to deliver the goods. We’ll see improved character models, special effects, monsters, loot, and locations. But, because GGG did not want to split up the player base or let purchases go to waste, they’ve ensured that content from previous leagues and even your stash tabs and cosmetics will be made available for both games.
Path of Exile 2 will provide a seven-act campaign that’s different from the original game. Newly-created exiles will also be able to choose from 19 new ascendancy classes that are vastly different from those that currently exist.
Project Resistance (Capcom)
A spinoff for the Resident Evil franchise.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated (Purple Lamp Studios)
Originally released for consoles back in 2003 — and there was even a PC port some time later – SpongeBob will return in a remastered adventure.
Twelve Minutes (Luis Antonio/Annapurna Interactive)
A romantic evening with your wife turns into a disaster when police break into your home and beat you to death. And then, you wake up, twelve minutes before your impending doom. You relive the moment over and over, stuck in a time loop, unless you can figure out a way to solve the mystery.
Unto the End (2 Ton Studios)
A father must reunite with his family, but he’ll encounter dangerous creatures along the way.
Barkley 2 (Tale of Game’s Studios)
Beyond Good & Evil 2 (Ubisoft)
Michael Ansel spent much of 2017 teasing the next game in the series and this follow-up is a prequel to Jade and Pey’j’s story. Gamers have been waiting a long time for this one. It still remains in development with more news to come in 2019.
Black Mesa (Crowbar Collective)
Although it’s been in Early Access for years, Black Mesa is expected to release some time in late 2018.
Update: No, it didn’t release in late 2018, and we still don’t know if it’ll officially launch in 2019.
Blood (Nightdive Studios)
A classic FPS from the glorious 90s, Blood pits you against deranged supernatural horrors. No launch date for this re-release has been provided yet. For now, just enjoy the old game.
Diablo IV (Blizzard)
The game was said to be in development years ago almost as a “Souls-like” type of offering. It’s since been rebooted to the Diablo IV that we’ll eventually see in the future. Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto, will be the arch-villain of the game. And yes, we’ll still have mobile phones by then.
Overwatch 2 (Blizzard)
The sequel to Blizzard’s fan-favorite multiplayer shooter, Overwatch 2 promises to deliver the big thrills. The game will also have a PvE mode and the cosmetics you’ve earned in the original will still be present.
Divinity: Fallen Heroes (Larian Studios/Logic Artists)
Continues the story of Divinity 2, and will be more tactics-oriented. Put on hold indefinitely.
Dragon Age IV: The Dread Wolf Rises (Bioware)
With only a teaser during the 2018 Game Awards, we’ve yet to find out more about the next Dragon Age game.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord (TaleWorlds Entertainment)
A sequel to one of the most engaging and immersive sandbox adventure and army-building games of all time, Bannerlord is something fans hotly anticipate. TaleWorlds are just keeping us at the edge of our seats by not yet announcing a release date.
Necromunda: Underhive Wars (Rogue Factor)
Rogue Factor and Focus Home Interactive have teamed up once more, this time to bring Necromunda to the digital world. Necromunda: Underhive Wars, as the adaptation is named, will be a turn-based tactical RPG in which gangs fight it out over resources, power, and ancient technology in the hellish sub-city of the Underhive. And considering that Necromunda is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, “hellish” really does take on a very particular meaning.
Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass (Croteam)
Serious Sam is back and he’s bringing all the big guns.
Bethesda’s first new IP in over 20 years. More details to come.
The Elder Scrolls VI : (Bethesda): TBA
Highly anticipated and announced at E3 2018. More details to come.
