30 Most Anticipated Games of 2021 We Can't Wait To Play

2020 was a bumper year for gaming, and 2021 is most likely going to follow in its footsteps. Generally, the year right after the launch of new consoles tends to be a slow one as far as major new releases are concerned, but it looks like the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S are looking to hit ground running. At the same time, the PS4 and Xbox One still have plenty of life left in them, while the Nintendo Switch, of course, shows no signs of slowing down either.

Here, we’re going to talk about thirty games that have been officially confirmed to be releasing in 2021 that we can’t wait to get our hands on. Given how many games have already been confirmed for this year, we will invariably have missed out on some. So if there are any upcoming releases you’re looking forward to but don’t see in this feature, make sure to mention them in your comments.

Also remember that we’ve only listed games that have been officially confirmed as 2021 releases by their publishers or developers- so even if a game is more than a little likely to release this year, if it hasn’t been officially confirmed as 2021 game, you won’t see it on this list.

    A lot of looped games



  19. Lynnea Trujillo on April 1, 2021 at 12:55 am

    2 of these games looked interesting. (only been hyped for god of war). I’m really not into the First person or FPS games since they make me nauseous. Sooooo this year looks like another year of meh for games. 🥲



  20. Struler08 on April 1, 2021 at 12:55 am

    Not a singel strategy builder. Sad times..



  21. studlee on April 1, 2021 at 12:56 am

    So 3 games. Cool. I wish they would quit making sequels to shitty ps2 games.



  22. Tüpfelblatt :D on April 1, 2021 at 12:57 am

  24. Randall Hillger on April 1, 2021 at 1:00 am

  25. Dante F on April 1, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Ratchet & Clank RIFT APART, Death Loop, Resident Evil Village, Horizon Forbidden West, GOD OF WAR RAGNAROK!, KENA BRIDGE OF SPIRITS (LOOKS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING AND ADORABLE!), Gotham Knights, Suicide Squad Kill The Justice League, Returnal, Solar Ash (looks stunning!!!), ELDEN RING (fingers crossed it comes to PS5 too!!). Those are the games I’m most excited to play and see!!



  26. Gienel Javier on April 1, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Am I the only one waiting for a Prototype 3 or prototype reboot game here?



  27. Mateus Fortes on April 1, 2021 at 1:02 am

  28. Jstar Productions on April 1, 2021 at 1:03 am

    what about Atomic heart?



  29. DeathHerself Gaming on April 1, 2021 at 1:03 am

    "We’re only going to add games that have been confirmed 2021 release"

    Most of the first ten don’t have release dates



  30. MundMoriginal on April 1, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Reallyno HZD2 on pc at launch? Another artificial timed exclusive? Oh well, their loss.



  31. Adam Renfrow on April 1, 2021 at 1:08 am

  32. India Gayan & Techno on April 1, 2021 at 1:09 am

    I still think god of war will come out in holidays 2022



  33. Derek Sutton on April 1, 2021 at 1:10 am

    Mass Effect!!!



  34. Flower Petals on April 1, 2021 at 1:11 am

    Mass Effect 3 had a huge elevator glitch/bug. Will they not just remaster the glitch as well?



  35. Dante F on April 1, 2021 at 1:12 am

    Death loop I think will end up being a surprise to everyone how great it is….I mean it looks fun. But I have a feeling the story and interesting gameplay for a shooter game will end up being way better than a lot of people expected.



  36. MXFT on April 1, 2021 at 1:15 am

    god of war ragnarock is going to be about his son not kratos



  37. Andy 90G on April 1, 2021 at 1:16 am

  41. Trevor Ryan on April 1, 2021 at 1:23 am

    I really only got excited about Cyberpunk to distract myself from Biomutant, but now Biomutant has a plausible release date. Hallelujah 2021!
