  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

One More Level is working on a new cyberpunk title called Ghostrunner. This is a first-person action game where the world has been broken up into safe havens though as time progressed, those left in humanity have flooded to the tower-city, the final remaining shelter. Unfortunately, things inside the shelter are just as rough with constantly growing threat of violence.

Players step into the role of a cyber-warrior a person who is not only capable of physical combat but also skilled at dealing with cyberspace. Overall, the goal is to reach the top of this city tower in hopes of uncovering the truth behind the tower and potentially save humanity from any further tyranny. This is another title that doesn’t have a full release date attached to the project yet. Instead, we’re looking for a planned release sometime in 2020. 

#9 Star Wars: Squadrons

  • Developer: Motive Studios
  • Publisher: EA
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: October 2, 2020
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Online

There’s always room for more Star Wars video games and now EA has a new release coming out this year for current-generation platforms. This Star Wars: Squadron’s video game is all about space dogfights between the New Republic and the Galactic Empire. This game is said to take place just after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi which picks up when the second Death Star is destroyed. As the New Republic begins to pick up steam and take over, the Empire is still putting up a fight. Players will be taking the role of a pilot on both sides of the war which may give a look behind the motives between each pilot’s reasoning behind the war, though that’s speculative at the moment.

At any rate, there seems to be a big emphasis on multiplayer support. So far we know that there is a 5v5 game mode in which players are zipping through space as they attempt to fight off the antagonist’s fleet ship. There’s even cross-platform support which means no matter what platform you’re playing on, players can connect online and enjoy the gameplay. Another aspect of this game is that those on the PlayStation 4 and PC platforms can enjoy VR support which should give quite an immersive feeling in battles.

#8 Kerbal Space Program 2

  • Developer: Star Theory Games
  • Publisher: Private Division
  • Platforms: PS4, XBO, PC
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA

Kerbal Space Program puts players in control of a space program where your sole purpose and duty is to create functional ships for a crew of Kerbals. With a collection of parts that will play an effect through the build of a spacecraft, players will learn how to successfully develop a spacecraft capable of going into space and landing back down to Earth.

Now a sequel is in the works where players can once again launch Kerbals into space but with hopes of gathering new resources and solving secrets to the entire galaxy. There will be a ton of new features added into the game as well such as an improved UI, animated tutorials and of course next-generation in-game items. Players will have access to brand new engines, fuels, and parts in order to construct a ship that will safely navigate deep space along with successfully landing without harm.

Furthermore, a new big feature will be added to the game which is colonies. Since you’re seeking out precious resources, you’ll need to establish a colony that can sustain itself along with with mine the various goods within the planet.

  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

Halo has always been a popular FPS franchise and while we knew 343 Industries was working on the next installment, Halo Infinite, it wasn’t until E3 2019 that we got our first real trailer on the game. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a ton of news regarding the title or what to expect, but the cinematic trailer we did receive had showcased Master Chief being rescued from space. After he is awoken from a cryostasis, we learned that humanity has lost so it’s up to the main protagonist to once again to fight back. While the details are a bit scarce at the moment, we do know that the developers are hoping to give a deeper narrative storyline and that it will be set on a Halo ring.

This is also a video game set to launch on the next-generation platform, Project Scarlett. While the title is set to launch on Microsoft’s upcoming console, Halo Infinite will also be launching on the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC platform. Gameplay footage along with more details are said to come during E3 2020 with the game launching late within the upcoming year.

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online 3 Players
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

The Tom Clancy’s series is mainly a tactical shooter than follows storylines based around fighting terrorism based around the world. However, During E3 2019 we got a surprise new look at the game franchise. Known as Rainbow Six Quarantine, this new video game seems to be taking place in the not so distant future with the battle being against an infection that is seemingly turning people into deadly monsters.

Unfortunately, the trailer reveal for this game is rather brief so we don’t have any full unveiling of the creatures that players not only have to put down but stay clear of from catching the disease. We shouldn’t be too far away from a new reveal for this game as it seems that Ubisoft is hoping to put the game out early next year for the current generation platforms.
