With all of the high-profile releases coming in 2020 and beyond, we very well could see the best year video games could have ever had in the next few months. The total volume of AAA releases alone is pretty staggering, and when combining indie releases onto the schedule for gaming time over the next year is about to get really competitive.
The roster of releases that are being teased at E3 2019 alone is pretty heated, and likely to get a lot of hype going around. Death Stranding, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Call of Duty Modern Warfare are all coming to the market fairly soon. And folks on the internet are freaking out about the prospect of so many awesome games. Kotaku‘s Jason Schreier said “2020 gonna be wild.”
There’s games coming out this year as well that I’m personally pretty excited about, and they will continue to eat my time in 2020. For one example, there’s Monster Hunter World‘s Iceborne DLC.
And even though some titles, like Cyberpunk 2077, aren’t very likely to drop until later in 2020, there’s still going to be a ton of good games to play in the meantime. The Sony side of things in particular is pretty stacked with huge releases like The Last of Us 2, Ghost of Tsushima, and an unannounced FromSoftware game that may involve George R.R. Martin. On the indie front, there’s plenty more great games to enjoy. There’s new Team17 titles being shown at E3 2019.
