From the much anticipated Death Stranding and Borderlands 3‘s release in 2019, to Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, 2019 had something for everyone.

And 2020 is already shaping up pretty nicely. Cyberpunk 2077’s release is just around the corner, featuring Keanu Reeves, of course, and the Final Fantasy VII remake is set for March 2020.

Here are some of much anticipated games to look forward to in 2020.

Games set for release in 2020

Avengers

Please note: Marvel’s Avengers has an age rating of Pegi 16.

Avengers will introduce a new story campaign for Earth’s most beloved and mightiest heroes. Unfortunately only Nolan North and Troy Baker voice their characters, none of the other actors featured in the game.

The all-star voice acting cast includes Troy Baker as Bruce Banner, Jeff Shine as Captain America, Travis Willingham as Thor, Laura Bailey as Black Widow, and Nolan North as Tony Stark. 

Halo: Infinite

Other than Cyberpunk, Halo Infinite was one of Microsoft’s biggest reveals at the E3 2019 gaming expo. The game is set to be released in October 2020, so we’ll have to settle in for the long wait.

The Halo Infinite reboot takes place after the previous game and is referred to as a “spiritual reboot”. The 343 Industries head Bonnie Ross said, “that’s kind of how we talk about it.”

The new game trailer released earlier this year showed Master Chief being rescued from space. He can be heard saying during a status report, “We lost.”

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake 

was announced at back in 2019 at theE3 Expo, with fans and critics alike labeling it as one of the most intriguing offerings coming our way in 2020.

The remake is set to release in March 2020 for current-gen consoles, and we’re assuming the next-gen batch will release alongside the respective console launches.

The Last of Us Part II

The Last of Us Part II debuted at Sony’s State of Play back in September 2019. As per the initial announcement, The Last of Us Part II was slated to launch on 21 February 2020. 

However, due to a scheduling conflict, the date was pushed back to 29 May 2020. That means it’ll be here just in time for this Gemini’s birthday, so I can’t complain all that much.

Speaking to PlayStation, Druckmann explains that the idea for The Last of Us “came into focus” during a dinner appointment with the Ashley Johnson – the actress who portrays Ellie – back in 2013. He explains:

“I met with Ashley Johnson and I pitched her the idea for Left Behind. And I told her I had something else I was working on and I pitched her that idea. So she’s there in the restaurant crying, and I’m thinking ‘I hope people don’t think I’m doing something horrible.’ But that’s the first time I remember having some strong idea.”

Cyberpunk 2077

We’re counting off the days until Cyberpunk 2077’s launch on 16 April 2020. It’s an open-world action shooter RPG (roleplaying game) featurning none other than Keanu Reeves.

You will play as V, an urban mercenary and cyberpunk who doesn’t shy away from taking money for doing dangerous jobs. You can customize V any way you choose, and many characters you meet in the game are bisexual.
