Games coming in January 2019

2018 has been a phenomenal year for gaming, and it kept delivering excellent titles till it’s last month, from indie games like Celeste that got nominated for GOTY by various outlets, to breathtaking technical achievements like God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2. As we’re nearing the end of this year, and while it doesn’t seem possible, but the next year, seems to be packed with even bigger and better games, and we’ll be going over the games coming in January 2019.

2018 was a remarkable year for games and it was indeed a tough pick to choosing a game that made the year stand out. With games like Detroit: Become Human, Spider-Man, The Walking Dead The Final Season, Life is Strange 2, and plenty of other AAA titles and indie games that really made this year one of the more memorable years for gaming. 2019 is going to have to up the ante and give us big names like Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part II to really steal the spotlight from 2018.

Additionally, 2019 also marks the first year we won’t see Sony at E3, so we could be in the final year of titles that will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One, so 2019 should be a year to remember.
