Winter begins today, which means it’s officially time to forget about all the games that came out this year and start preparing for all of the new ones.

It used to be that you could ease into the new year by quietly plugging away at all the games you missed months prior. But now the dead of winter is hardly that dead any more. Especially this year, as few choice projects like Kingdom Hearts III and Crackdown 3 hoist themselves out of years of delays and onto store shelves the world over. The steady march of games continues. Below you’ll find a list of the biggest ones coming in the next few months.
