Every Big Game Coming Out In January [Updated]

video games coming out january 2020 pc ps4 xbox switch ios android

It's the first month of what's set to be a bumper year. And while there's no Last of Us 2 or Cyberpunk 2077 this month, there's more than plenty to keep an eye on.

Update: 16/1: Added a suite of Switch titles and more mid-month announcements. Moons of Madness has been removed after the developers announced its console release would be delayed to March 24.

The biggest games are this week and next, with Monster Hunter Iceborne hitting PC and Kakarot, while Warcraft 3: Reforged will close out January. (Reforged launches January 28 internationally, but it won't unlock until the morning of January 29 in Australia.) The Switch has a quiet month, although there's Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore and an Oddworld game.

But there's a lot of other notable entries too, from the totally-not-Pokemon MMO TemTem, a huge DLC drop for Total War: Three Kingdoms, Romance of the Three Kingdoms getting an English port, and the Atelier games next week. The Rusty Lake developers are also back with The White Door, which looks a treat. Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3 is due out this month as well, although it doesn't have a specific launch date yet.

This post will be updated as more games are announced, released or delayed.


    Only a few titles there that I'm after but that's ok, there's still a bunch of stuff coming in the next few months I gotta save up for. Gotta pace yourself.

    Nothing for me there, though I see quite a few that would excite others.

    It'd be helpfull if it were indicated which are actually releasing and which are merely entering early access.

    P.S. It's spelled Praetorians

    Here’s hoping AO Tennis 2 is good. Though we all know everyone just wants a new Virtual Tennis.

    Not a quiet Switch month for me when an Atelier trilogy drops!

    I would of gotten the new total war expansion but it's hard to go back to armies poking each other with pointy objects when you have been spoiled with dragons and giants in Warhammer

      Yeah. The hype for Three Kingdoms really fell so flat for me - after a few mediocre 'mere humans' battles - that I actually refunded it. I think I've refunded all of five games total, ever. But the sticker price was way too high to just keep something in my library that's never going to get touched before Total Warhammer exists.

      Kind of depends on why you like the Total War games, I personally liked ROME TW becuase of the diplomacy and management just as much as the battles.

        Yes, yesss.

        Expunge the man-things.

        Why would you need other Totalwar games when Warhammer lets you play as the best, Skaven.

          Considering I just vaporised the sacred Wood elf tree covertly in a giant green magical mushroom cloud I tend to agree with you

          I'm super looking forward to getting around to the latest DLC. Eshin 4eva!

    Might be just me but yet to jump into that AO Tennis thing...

    Pretty quiet, great. I've got a few unfinished games to play. Only things I'm really after in the near future is Animal Crossing and possibly Minecraft Dungeons as my first step into a dungeon crawler (plus my kids can watch it!).

    Hmm I thought POE2 was coming out for PS4 at the same time as Xbox.

    I didn't have much on my plate this month ... until I saw a let's play of Journey to the Savage Planet. It's like Outer Worlds if it were a cartoon, and I'm absolutely sold on that idea.

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions and Yakuza should tide me over nicely. Not sold on WC3 though it would have been a no-brainer once upon a time.

      Yakuza - Japan only... Unless you're native-level fluent I guess

    Yesss Sims Tiny living.

    Ohh crap did I post that

    I thought something was missing! The port of Wizardry is coming out today on PC.

      That's today! (Jan 15 US time.)

        It always makes me sad when they don't come out at midnight on the dot US time. But its available now, so huzzah!

    I am realy keen on Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and hope it gets a port to English after the Yakuza Remasters for 3, 4 and 5 come out.

      It feels like the Yakuza series is gradually getting more attention outside of Japan, so hopefully it's just a matter of time before we get an English port. That still could be a while away though, which sucks.
