We have only just started 2021 and after that terrible year is 2020 thanks to the beginning of the global pandemic we are dealing with. With that said, it’s pretty tempting to have some new games to escape the reality we live in. In this list, we’ll highlight some of the best AAA video games coming out this year or we expect to release within the year. These games may be pushed back, but for now, here are a few that we’re worth considering. There is no particular order for this list, a lot of these games are yet to come out so it is difficult to determine how they will stack up.
Back 4 Blood – AAA video games
The Left 4 Dead franchise is huge even though there are only two games available and the sequel was released back in 2009. Even so, there is a fanbase dedicated to this IP, providing support long after Valve with new content and modifications for the PC community. Although Valve owns the rights to Left 4 Dead, they are not the creators of this IP.
It belongs to Turtle Rock Studios, who left the IP to Valve after it was acquired by the company. There’s a story here when it comes to Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios, and Valve, but to keep things short, Turtle Rock Studios was able to spin off again and move on as the development studio of the surname.
Microsoft is bringing Fable back to the market and through the ice. This IP has been dormant for years now, but it looks like we’ll soon be getting a reboot here just for Microsoft platforms. It’s one of the pretty cool AAA video games in development as it comes from development studio Playground Games.
If you’re not familiar with the name, these are the people responsible for the Forza Horizon series of racing games, but it looks like they’ve got a chance to work on this massive open-world RPG.
We don’t know anything about the game yet other than that it is being rebooted. So far, there’s only been a single trailer, and it’s cinematic so no gameplay has been shown or any details regarding the premise. We’re very much looking forward to getting this game, and we expect it to come out in 2021.
Elden Ring – AAA video games
From the software, you all know the development studio so far. The company has been around for several years, but most recently, it has gained worldwide attention for the makers of the iconic Souls video game series.
Dark Souls, Demon’s Souls, Bloodborne, these games are extremely popular for being dark, gloomy, and quite unforgiving. The battle isn’t for the faint of heart here and it keeps players coming back for more to endure the harsh and punishing levels. There is a new IP being developed at the studio called Elden Ring.
We don’t have good details yet, and while we don’t have any gameplay footage or premise, we do know a fun little fact. The development team collaborated with George R.R. Martin, a legendary author behind the novel A Song of Ice and Fire. This is the last game of our AAA video games list
