After a madcap first quarter, things slowed down considerably in the following months of 2019. Certainly, there were big franchise entries scattered across the months, plus a couple of big console exclusives... but where the heck was that fresh and exciting new IP?
August is the month where that trend turns around. We're seeing some electrifying new titles coming out from beloved studios/creators with them all gambling big and risky.
Remedy Entertainment has broke their Xbox exclusive clause to bring us an exciting and bizarre new shooter, Supermassive Games breaks theirs bring us a new interactive horror game (with co-op to boot). Add to that new games from Double Fine Games, Gunfire Games, Crytek, Patrice Desilets, Platinum Games and even a remaster of an old FromSoftware cult-classic not available outside of Japan for 15 years.
If you've been dreaming of new IP from top-notch studios, August is your month - take a chance and vote with your wallet on scores of fresh video games, as the industry well and truly kicks back into gear.
