The year is almost over, which means it’s time to start dreaming about all of the great games you’ll be playing in 2019 — and it sure looks like there will be a lot. Next year is shaping up to be packed with notable releases, from the charming world of Animal Crossing to the violent action of Gears of War.

Of course, these are just the games we know about, and there will definitely be plenty of surprises throughout 2019. I’ve also only included games that are actually scheduled for next year, which is why you won’t see big names like Metroid Prime 4, The Last of Us Part II, or Halo Infinite. Same goes for games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Death Stranding that are likely years away from release. Additionally, it’s important to note that some of the included games are likely to be delayed, possibly beyond 2019.

That said, there’s still a lot to be excited about, including a number of games that we’ve been anticipating for years. And yes, Kingdom Hearts III is actually coming out. For real this time.
