Fall can feel like the worst season for a lot of reasons—school starts, the days grow short, people become obsessed with putting pumpkin in everything—but new video game releases is definitely not one of them.


If you enjoy big, expensive, blockbuster video games, especially sequels, this time of year has you covered. Assassins, cowboys, soldiers and apocalyptic scavengers are all headed our way again. Also Pokémon, because there will always be more Pokémon. Below you’ll find a list of the biggest games coming in the next few months.
