There are a bunch of big releases in October--and even more are on the way soon. The fall release season is in full swing, and October's video game release dates still include some big names. You can expect games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint (out now), and Luigi's Mansion 3.

Amid all these big names are new expansions, indie games, and re-releases. You might want to spend another 100+ hours The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or Overwatch with their respective Nintendo Switch ports. Of course, the long-awaited Kickstarted indie action-RPG Indivisible might suit your fancy just as well. WWE 2K20 is making the rounds in October with tons of wrestlers to choose. But if you're big into Destiny 2, then all these other games may mean nothing to you since you're more keen to play the Shadowkeep expansion for the rest of the year. Also out now is the free-to-play New Light version of the game, which includes a ton of content and lets you jump into the game without paying a cent.

It's safe to say that there are plenty of games coming in October, and if you're all about knowing when each one is releasing, then you're in the right place. We've rounded up all the biggest game release dates of October 2019 below. For a look at all the other big games still to come this year, be sure to check out our complete list of game release dates in 2019.

As the sequel to 2017's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, Breakpoint is taking a different approach to the series' established formula. Aside from a darker tone, it places a greater emphasis on survival, gathering loot, and class-based tactical shooting. You explore the New Zealand-Inspired fictional island of Aurora as Ghosts operative Lieutenant Colonel "Nomad," as they take on missions to eliminate a rogue military contractor known as Skell Technology.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a soft reboot to the tenured first-person shooter franchise. Across both single-player and multiplayer, the focus this time is on tactical shooting and decision-making. Though, you can still expect the fast-paced competitive thrills the series is known builds its name on. Other notable features in Modern Warfare include cross-platform multiplayer, the return of killstreaks, a 100-player mode called Ground War, and more.
