Though there’s still some major releases still to come in 2019, as 2020 looms closer, so does a whole new release cycle of games. Already, some are getting a little lost in the shuffle.
This list isn’t about highlighting the best or most anticipated games of 2020 necessarily, but rather, shining a spotlight on games that have great potential without revealing much, or games yet to receive any major traction.
Cyberpunk 2077, for example, is set to be one of the definitive titles of 2020, but won’t be found here. Instead, there’s some indie titles, major studio b-projects and a couple of potentially massive games that just don’t seem to have picked up any traction yet.
One thing these games all have in common though is massive promise. Though the likes of The Outer Worlds, Death Stranding and Pokémon are still waiting to drain your wallet before the year is out, these ten already show that 2020 will be a year of depth.
Big titles like Cyberpunk or Avengers are great, but it’s often the smaller releases which form the lifeblood of the industry.
You need to check these games out, even if they’re a bit under the radar right now.
