Most Anticipated Games of 2021

We look ahead to the first full year of the new console generation

Posted by on


The past year has been challenging for many across the globe. With the world getting caught up in a deadly virus outbreak, we were forced to stay at home, and try to weather the storm. As we touched on in our GOTY 2020 Awards though, this situation helped push video games into the spotlight, a way for us to unwind and forget, at least for a moment. And just as we all hope for the global pandemic to soon come to an end, we also look ahead to the video games that will hopefully release and entertain us in the coming year. With the arrival of new consoles, the future has a bright and exciting outlook. Below, we've selected 12 games that all of our current staff are currently anticipating for 2021, listed in alphabetical order.
