All the release dates | E3 2021

Lost track of the games announced at E3 and their launch windows? We round up all the release dates unveiled at the event

By the end of E3, all the games you have seen probably merged into one imprecise memory, leaving you with questions such as: what did [insert publisher here] show again? When does [insert game here] release? Why has Devolver Digital not made a feature-length film about Nina Struthers yet?

While we can't help answering the latter, we can however help you remember what games were announced when, by whom, and when they'll be launching. Here we'll be specifically focusing on the release dates announced during E3 2021, meaning we're not including games that already had their launch window prior to the event. We are also only mentioning games with a clear release date or window, rather than 'TBC'.

In total, there were 46 games confirmed for launch in 2021, with another 27 lined up for next year.

If you want to read a day-by-day recap of what happened this E3 2021, you can head over to our handy round up of all the headlines and don't forget to watch our GI at E3 Newscasts as well.
