2024 is coming sooner than we think. While 2023 has already been an excellent year for gaming, as seen in my best of the year so far article, and still has more to show. However, 2024 is shaping up to be a heavy hitter, too. We have sequels, new IPs, remakes, and so much more. So, let’s look at what we can expect from the world of video games come 2024.

NOTE: This list only includes already announced titles. No speculative entries will be on this list (though I may make one in the future). Still, many of the games do not have solid release dates. As they come out, I will update this page with the respective dates, as well as new information. There is a possibility that some of these games can get pushed to 2025 as delays happen. However, as they are currently scheduled for release in 2024, they will be on this list. Some of the games’ release dates are also subject to change.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown – January 15th, 2024


The crowned prince has returned! Thirteen years since its last official entry, Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia is coming back in a new 2.5D platformer. This fresh take on the beloved series comes courtesy of Ubisoft Montpellier, the team behind Beyond Good and Evil and Rayman. The prince is in danger, and a group of warriors called the Immortals set out to rescue him. As the hero Sargon, you will jump, dash, parkour, and fight your way through traps and monsters aplenty. Aiding you on your journey is the power of time, letting you zip around platforms and enemies in the blink of an eye. The Lost Crown is inspired by Persian mythology and is seen as a modernization of the series. Metroidvania gameplay shines through in the trailers, and while long-time fans may find the changes too much, the seeds for a memorable entry in Prince of Persia are planted. We will see just how much they grow come January 15th.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth – January 26th, 2024

Trailer / Gameplay

Ichiban and the gang are back again! Now, they’ve got a plus one: the Dragon of Dojima himself! Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios and SEGA are ready to continue the story of Yakuza: Like a Dragon in the series’ eighth main installment. Not much has been revealed about the game, as it’s in active development. However, clips and trailers show that the crew will be in Japan, as well as some unknown territory: the USA! Infinite Wealth will maintain its predecessor’s strategic RPG gameplay, as it will be the standard going forward. Still, in typical Like a Dragon fashion, there are a plethora of minigames and fun activities to do The tone of the game will likely bear resemblance to seven, with comedy at the forefront (especially as the reveal trailer ‘bare’s it all). With cool-headed Kiryu joining in, sporting white hair, it can go either way. The game will have a demo included in Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name (which earned a spot in my most anticipated releases list, seen here), so fans will be able to play more then. Still, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will be one of the series’ largest entries, so keep tabs on this one and get ready to become a hero again!

UPDATE: Alongside a story trailer (seen here) and a gameplay trailer (link available above), Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will launch on January 26th, 2024. Story-wise, the game follows Ichiban in his search for his mother in Honolulu City as Kiryu struggles with his sudden cancer diagnosis and rumored death. Both have been dealt bad hands, but together, they will make the most out of it.

Persona 3 Reload – February 2nd, 2024

Trailer / Gameplay

The Dark Hour approaches again. Will you keep your promise? The 2006 hit RPG Persona 3 is getting ‘reloaded’ in this stylish remake. Join S.E.E.S as they make their way through the many floors of Tartarus and slay the evil shadows haunting the city. That, and balancing school and social life. Updated graphics and overhauled combat systems are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of improvements. Alongside new voice actors (a who’s who can be found here), new music will be done by longtime musician Lotus Juice and promising newcomer Azumi Takahashi. The series has been making massive strides in recent years, with the success of Persona 5. Persona 3 was the title that brought most of the concepts seen in new series entries, so it’ll be great to see it fully realized in the modern day. Recent trailers show that ATLUS and P Studio are going all in, making Persona 3 Reload a dark horse for the upcoming 2024 Game of the Year race. We don’t have to wait too long, either, as it launches on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X (and Xbox Game Pass) on February 2nd.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League – February 2nd, 2024

Trailer / Gameplay

Heroes stop villains. But who stops the heroes? The villains, of course! Well, not like they have a say in that manner. Rocksteady Studios, the team behind the acclaimed Batman: Arkham series, is returning to DC after eight years. This time around, you play as the Suicide Squad. Under the direction of Amanda Waller, Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang are tasked with taking down Brainiac. However, all of the Justice League (excluding Wonder Woman) are under his control and destroying the city. You, whether solo or with friends, play as one of the Suicide Squad and rid the town of Brainiac’s minions. And, well, you read the title. The road to the game’s launch has been rocky, getting several delays and criticism from fans for its live-service features. Despite that, Rocksteady’s keen on making Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League the best game they could. This game is also notable for having the last performance of the late Kevin Conroy, whose Batman was the voice of many childhoods (mine included). It has a lot to live up to, but if anyone can deliver, it’s Rocksteady. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League rolls out on February 2nd.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth – February 29th, 2024


A new world awaits, yet the past is still unclear. Square Enix is reuniting players with the AVALANCHE crew for the sequel to 2020’s critically acclaimed RPG Final Fantasy VII Remake. The story picks up right where Remake left off, with Cloud, Aerith, Tifa, Barrett, and Red XIII escaping Midgar. Sephiroth still lives, and it’s up to them to stop him. However, there are questions left unanswered that may get their unsavory answers. Who can be trusted? What does the future have in store? Are the ties to fate too thick to cut? Gameplay-wise, all party members are playable this time around, and the real-time combat is as intuitive as ever. Rebirth is part of the remake trilogy of Final Fantasy VII, so it will cover the middle of the original and make way for the finale. Still, as seen in Remake, it’s much more of a reimagining, keeping most of the original but planting seeds of a potential change. Whatever the case, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will undoubtedly be one of the biggest titles of the year and one everyone should keep on their radars come early 2024.

UPDATE: At PlayStation’s 9.14.2023 State of Play, a new trailer was shown for the game (seen here), alongside an official release date: February 29th, 2024.

Avowed – TBA 2024


Will you free the Living Lands of the plague? Obsidian Studios is ready to embark on its next quest with the help of Xbox. The Fallout: New Vegas studio has been hard at work on the project for four years. The game takes place in Eora, a world familiar to those who played the studio’s Pillars of Eternity series. Avowed is a first-person RPG where you, an Aedyr Empire envoy, investigate the plague-riddled Living Lands. Upon learning a terrible personal secret, you must choose how to use all your magic and weapons: for good or for evil. Like the studio’s previous title, The Outer Worlds, players meet companions whom they can take with them on their travels. While it is not open-world, dialogue choices can affect the story and, likely, the world around you. Avowed looks to be quite the medieval adventure, so expect to see more in the near future. That, or you could cast some time spells to get to its release. Your choice.

Metaphor: Refantazio – TBA 2024


The kingdom is on the verge. You are but a human, yet your resolve is sound. Go forth and fight. They depend on you now. ATLUS and Studio Zero are creating a new franchise with the help of Persona series veterans. Metaphor: Refantazio is an RPG that combines the style of the Shin Megami Tensei/Persona series and brings it into a high-fantasy setting. Create bonds with people to strengthen your cause and solve the mysteries that threaten the kingdom. The game features turn-based combat with intuitive designs, as well as world exploration. As only the announcement trailer is out, we have only scratched the surface. Still, Metaphor: Refantazio is shaping up to be something truly special.

Rise of the Ronin – TBA 2024


The Edo period is near its end. The tides are changing. Where do you stand? Ninja Gaiden and Nioh studio Team Ninja and Sony Interactive Entertainment are teaming up to create the next big samurai game. Much of the West’s influence has spread across Japan. A civil war within the country brews. You, as a ronin, have no bonds. You choose how you want the future to go. With an adaptable combat system, you can fight however you’d like, with an arsenal of swords and guns at your disposal. A 19th-century Japan acts as your backdrop as you explore and change its history. Currently, there is no release date for Rise of the Ronin, but with Sony’s backing and Team Ninja’s fervid ambition, this title may be one for the history books.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II – TBA 2024

Trailer / Gameplay

Will you defeat the darkness? Or will the darkness defeat you? Ninja Theory’s groundbreaking 2015 title Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is receiving a sequel. Now, with the help of Xbox, it will be on a much larger and grander scale. Set in Iceland, Senua sets out to save those who have suffered from cruelty. She will face mythological beasts and foes beyond the realm of realism. Not much else is known about the game, with story details being kept to a minimum. However, from the gameplay seen so far, the visuals are breathtaking. To top it off, Game Award winner Melina Juergens will return as Senua in both voice and motion capture. If the game is anything like the original, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II could be Xbox’s next big title.

Star Wars Outlaws – TBA 2024

Trailer / Gameplay

It’s a dangerous galaxy out there. How will you leave your mark? Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment, the studio behind Tom Clancy’s The Division, are aiming their blasters at the Star Wars franchise with Star Wars Outlaws. As Kay Vess (alongside alien pal Nix), you will scour the Outer Rim looking for the next big score. The game takes place in between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The third-person shooter will have stealth and open combat, whether on vehicle or foot. Branching narratives will also be a part of the game, letting players decide how they want to be seen in the world. Star Wars Outlaws looks to be one of the most ambitious Star Wars projects since Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series. The title is more narrative-based, crafting a rich story and interesting characters. The stage is set, so we will see if the force is strong with Star Wars Outlaws when it launches.

The Wolf Among Us 2 – TBA 2024


Bigby Wolf isn’t the type of detective to just roll over and die. Neither is Telltale Games. Ten years after the launch of the original episodic adventure, The Wolf Among Us 2 marks the return of the famed Big Bad Wolf. Telltale, known for their Walking Dead games, shut down in 2018. After some help, they returned in 2019 and have since been making their way back up. AdHoc Studios, a team made up of Telltale writers, is helping with the story. It’s been a while since last we’ve heard about the sequel. However, as its origins are linked to fairy tales and their gritty reimaginings, I’m positive it’ll be a good one. This return to form will be the perfect way to witness the revival of such an acclaimed studio. The Wolf Among Us 2 is scheduled for release in 2024.


Those were just some of the titles we can expect to get our hands on come 2024. Which are you most excited about? Any titles I missed? Let me know in the comments and leave a like if you enjoy this content. Until next time, players!
