2018 video game releases: Every confirmed release date this year

Finder 4 January 2018 NEWS


After a rollercoaster 2017 with some massive releases on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, 2018 is knocking at the door.

By Brodie Fogg and Matt Sayer

With so many quality titles in 2017, you're probably swimming in time-consuming romps like South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Unfortunately or fortunately (depending on how busy your 2018 schedule is looking) for you, we're about to load up your plate until there's a mountain of multiplayer games and smaller indies spilling over the sides. Happy New Year!

The following list is a working round-up of every game confirmed to release in 2018. You won't find Death Stranding or Cyberpunk 2077 unless anything further is announced. You will find when the fantastic Furi is heading to Nintendo Switch,when the hunt begins in Monster Hunter: World, when Far Cry 5's culty crusade begins and when you'll be able to find A Way Out with EA (if EA's 2017 is anything to go by, a way out is exactly what you will be looking for).

Without further hesitation, here is the full list of confirmed 2018 video game releases. To filter by console, simply use the drop-down. Alternatively, you can search for individual titles to see if they have a confirmed release date for 2018.
