If you're searching for all the new games coming out in 2021 for console and PC, we've rounded up all the key dates you need to know.

While the beginning of 2021 has been relatively quiet for game releases (which is typical for this time of year), there are some big hitters releasing throughout this year that are absolutely worth marking your calendar for, including the likes of Resident Evil Village, Deathloop and Halo Infinite.

It's certainly shaping up to be another exciting year for gaming as developers push the power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but it's not just next-gen console owners who are set to have all the fun. Nintendo Switch is set to have another strong year, with some highly anticipated releases on the way. Streaming services like Amazon Luna are also set to get better in 2021, and of course, there's PC, which continues to set the standard in hardware power and flexibility.

It can be hard to keep track of which games are releasing and when, though, so we've put together this regularly updated guide of all the new games in 2021 and beyond so you know what's on the horizon.
