Upcoming PC games 2024

Confirmed 2024 releases

Here’s everything that’s on our radar for 2024. The games immediately below have set release dates. We’ll get into anything that’s more up in the air below the confirmed launches

Gigantic: Rampage Edition
Platforms PC (Microsoft Windows), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S

Release April 09, 2024
Initially created by Motiga and distributed by Perfect World Entertainment, Gigantic emerged as a hero-centric multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, receiving substantial promotion during the mid-2010s. Regrettably, despite concerted efforts, it failed to captivate a significant audience or generate sufficient revenue for its creators, leading to its closure in 2018. While such a fate typically spells the conclusion for most live-service games, Gigantic is poised for a resurgence.
