Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Breakpoint
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: October 4, 2019

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon is making a return in 2019. The video game is set to follow after the events of Tom Clancy’s Wildlands and will retain some of the attributes that made that particular game different compared to other installments from the franchise such as being set in an open world environment. News is still a bit scarce at the time of writing this but it does look like the game will follow a team of special force operatives who are sent to an island owned by a billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist by the name of Jace Skell. Skilled and worldwide known for his technological advances, it appears that evil regimes have managed to secure plenty of Skell’s products to use as a weaponize weapon.


Bleeding Edge
  • Developer: Ninja Theory
  • Publisher: Xbox Games Studios
  • Platforms: PC, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Ninja Theory who crafted up Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has a new interesting title coming exclusively to the Xbox One and PC platforms. The video game is a brawler that puts players into teams, similar to Overwatch or Paladins. In the game, players will have an assortment of characters to select and each will likely have their own unique attributes or abilities. Likewise, the characters will be broken into classes such as an assassin or tank. Players will need to work together and flesh out their roster full of character classes to win matches. Likewise, being such a different style of game from Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, we’re interested in seeing how well this game handles when it does release. Unfortunately, no specific release date was attached to the game quite yet other than an alpha build being ready sometime during this summer.


The Sinking City
  • Developer: Frogwares
  • Publisher: Bigben Interactive
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: June 27, 2019

The Sinking City is a game that was originally meant to be Call of Cthulhu until developers, Frogwares, decided to make their own creation. Now this heavily inspired H.P. Lovecraft title is something that has plenty of gamers eyes focused on for a release in June of this year. Players will follow a private investigator by the name of Charles W. Reed who is in New England seeking answers to why the city has been suffering from massive floods. From the look of the teaser trailer, there is clearly something supernatural affecting the area and a dark mystery that will need to be unveiled.

This is not only a horror-themed title but you will have a world filled to explore. There are even some game mechanics that will change as you progress along with various actions you perform in any given scenario. Developers are not sharing too much information in regards to the narrative or what all gamers can expect with the in-game mechanics but so far this is one title that may be a day one purchase on our end.


Borderlands 3
  • Developer: Gearbox Software
  • Publisher:  2K Games
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release:  September 13, 2019

Borderlands is a successful video game franchise though despite having a following, we haven’t had a third main installment since Borderlands 2 launched in 2012. However, in a surprise announcement during PAX East, we got the announcement of Borderlands 3 which is slated to launch in September of this year. We haven’t got too many details about the game at the moment, but apparently, this time around there will be four new vault hunters and two cult leader antagonists to deal with. This game is likely going to have plenty of information roll out during E3 of this year but so far the trailer footage revealed so far looks to be the traditional gameplay we’ve come to know and love from the franchise.


Back 4 Blood
  • Developer: Turtle Rock Studios
  • Publisher: Turtle Rock Studios
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Back 4 Blood is an upcoming spiritual sequel to the Left 4 Dead franchise which was originally developed by the development team Turtle Rock Studios. It looks like the gang is bringing back the franchise in a new way since Valve hasn’t brought out a true third installment for the series. This announcement so far doesn’t come with a lot of details unfortunately. Instead, we’re only given a brief little bit of information. We know that the game will play out similar to the Left 4 Dead franchise, it will offer multiplayer and it will have a full campaign.


The Surge 2
  • Developer: Deck13 Interactive
  • Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Development studio, Deck13, has been around since 2002 with some of their latest titles being 2014’s Lords of the Fallen and 2017’s The Surge. The latter of the two will be seeing a sequel sometime in 2019 with publishers Focus Home Interactive.

The Surge was a science fiction action RPG which takes place in the future where humanity has used up the various world resources. As a result, humanity becomes strained with most seeking use of technological advances to maintain their daily lives.

Mimicking the Souls series, The Surge franchise is aimed to be a difficult RPG with players encouraged to upgrade their exoskeleton suit for battles. So far, we know that this upcoming sequel will take place in a brand new city environment with larger level designs and a tweaked combat mechanic to offer more tactical strategy.
