December 2020: Major Game Release Dates For PS5/PS4, Xbox Series X/One, Switch, And PC

The year is almost over, but there are some big name games still on the way before 2020 officially wraps up.

59 Comments

December is here, which means we're quickly coming up on the end of 2020. That doesn't mean there are no new games to look forward to before the year wraps up, however. Although this month is fairly light in terms of new releases, there are still some notable games coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, Switch, and last-gen consoles over the next few weeks.

Undoubtedly the biggest release is CD Projekt Red's highly anticipated (and long-delayed) Cyberpunk 2077, which is coming first to PC, Xbox One, and PS4 with backwards compatibility before launching on the next-gen consoles in 2021. However, it's not the only notable game coming out this month. Life Is Strange developer Dontnod released its surreal thriller Twin Mirror at the start of the month, while Ubisoft's Breath of the Wild-inspired epic Immortals Fenyx Rising arrived on December 3.

There are also some exciting retro releases out this month. Nintendo officially localized the very first Fire Emblem game, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light, for Switch on December 4, and Square Enix is bringing the first three Final Fantasy Legend games to the hybrid console later this month in Collection of SaGa.

Those are only a few of the games coming out this month. You can see the biggest game releases of December 2020 for each platform below, and be sure to stick with GameSpot as we begin to set our sights on 2021 and all the exciting games coming in the year ahead.

Dontnod, the studio behind the acclaimed Life Is Strange series, is embracing the surreal with its next venture, Twin Mirror--a Twin Peaks-inspired detective thriller starring investigative journalist Sam Higgs. Sam returns to his hometown of Basswood, West Virginia to attend his close friend's funeral only to find that things aren't as they seem, and it's up to players to explore both the real world and Sam's "mind palace" to gather clues and discover the truth.

The game formerly known as Gods & Monsters, Immortals Fenyx Rising is an open-world epic steeped in Greek mythology. As the eponymous Fenyx, players will explore the sprawling Golden Isles--all of which is open right from the start of the adventure--and rescue four gods from Typhon. Ubisoft has plenty of post-launch support planned for the game as well, including three DLC expansions, one of which is based on Chinese mythology.

Cyberpunk 2077 has been a long time coming, suffering multiple delays this year, but it appears it'll be well worth the wait. CD Projekt Red's latest RPG looks every bit as deep and engrossing as The Witcher 3, taking players deep into the underbelly of Night City, where they'll be trying to make a name for themselves as a mercenary. A free next-gen upgrade for the game will be released next year, while its full-fledged multiplayer component won't arrive until 2022 at the earliest.
