IncGamers’ Mega PC Game Release Date List: Summer 2014 and Beyond

mega list

Welcome to the updated and improved our PC Game Release Date Mega List of (almost) every upcoming PC game of 2014. If you’re still reading the older 2014 PC games list that was put together at the start of the year, stop it. This is the more up to date one.

Listed release dates might be US or EU, depending on which one I became aware of first. Where no release date is known, I’ve given the nearest annual quarter or best guess based on the latest information. You’ll get the general idea.

If a game is in Steam’s early access I consider it to be ‘out’ to some extent (you can buy it, after all,) but I’ve tended to make individual decisions for games of that nature; especially in cases where there’s an indication of when the game might actually be finished. The same goes for titles like Elite: Dangerous or Star Citizen with external paid alpha/beta stages.

There will of course be absolutely shed-loads of indie games released in addition to everything listed here. It’s impossible to include all of those, in part because I often don’t know they exist until about a week before release (or later.)

If there are any notable absentees, please point them out in the comments below and I’ll see about getting them included.
