The Games of 2013: El33tonline’s Great Big Release List

Written by: / / 1 Comment


We say it every year, because it’s always true every year:

“This is going to be a fantastic year for games!”

Every year, publishers and developers get smarter about when they choose to release their blockbuster titles making for less of a Holiday-centric launch period, but it seems as though ‘March’ has become the new ‘November’ because the third month of 2013 was once again jam-packed with out-of-this-universe titles. January and February didn’t look too bad, either…

We’ve collected together a mighty list of games due to release in 2013, as well as games that we haven’t heard from in a while all bundled together with titles that we know for certain (well, 99 percent certain) will be revealed as the year goes on.

Living and Breathing and Gaming

This page will continue to be updated throughout the year as solid release dates and new games are announced, so you can go ahead and bookmark it now to keep checking back as 2013 progresses.
