Both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are set for a boom period in Holiday 2020, with many of the biggest upcoming blockbusters set for release in this timeframe.

While exact dates are yet to be confirmed for most titles, there’s a heap of exciting adventures coming your way on both Xbox Series X and PS5 before the end of the year.

Here’s everything currently set to release on next gen consoles in Holiday 2020.

Note: Some of the above titles are also releasing on PC and other platforms like Google Stadia or Apple Arcade.

While Cyberpunk 2077 is launching in mid-November, its Xbox Series X and PS5 enhanced versions won’t launch until 2021, so it’ll miss the Holiday 2020 period.

Some ‘optimised’ crossgen games like Watch Dogs: Legion, WRC 9, Madden NFL 21 and NBA 2K21 also don’t have a confirmed simultaneous releases on current and next gen consoles yet so we’ve held off on including them in the list — but there’s still a chance they’ll make the holiday 2020 window.

Dates included in the article are subject to change as coronavirus and development delays continue to cause chaos with video game release dates. This article will be updated as more titles are announced and dated.

  • That’s a LOT of stuff to land in the next three months… I wouldn’t be surprised if more than a couple flinch and delay their releases. That next-gen acting as an incentive to meet the deadline, maybe?

    • I kinda hope so. I don’t mind waiting a bit longer to play a game on a better system and hopefully providing a better/ smoother experience

  • Hmm, well looks like I’ll be able to hold off getting a next gen console until next year sometime then. Not a particularly compelling line up for me. Though I’m still questioning whether I’m going to go full on PC gaming and a large part of that depends on how many games on the PS5 sizzle reel are console exclusive.
