Ready or not, the calendar has now flipped to the year 2020. On paper, the new year certainly looks to be a big one for the gaming industry as not only are some major franchises due to return but a brand new console generation is set to begin. However, that’s a story for another day.
For now we turn our attention to the month of January and what game’s you’ll be able to get your hands on. Unfortunately, this year doesn’t have a Resident Evil title to tide you over, but Capcom is instead finally bringing their smash hit Monster Hunter World expansion Iceborne to PC players. Speaking of PC, Blizzard is finally releasing Warcraft III: Reforged as well and it looks fantastic.
Outside of that, there really isn’t a big name to kick things off in 2020. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot finally arrives and on paper it looks like it could be a winner, but the track record with this franchise seems to be spotty at best. Journey to the Savage Planet, a new IP from Typhoon Studios could also be a sleeper hit this month as well. The new development studio is made up of industry veterans from places like Ubisoft, EA, and WB Games, so this co-op FPS should be fairly interesting.
I hope you all had a great holiday and get all the games you wanted! Here’s the complete list of January 2020 video game releases. Enjoy!
