2024 will be a massive year for new games

While 2023 was a banner year for video games, with the releases of Baldur’s Gate 3, Diablo 4, Final Fantasy 16, Starfield, Street Fighter 6, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the year in video games for 2024 is already looking like an even match. Big new games like Star Wars Outlaws, Dragon’s Dogma 2, and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, are on the docket, as are major expansions for Destiny 2, Elden Ring, Final Fantasy 14 Online, and World of Warcraft.

While video game release dates are always in flux, Polygon’s guide to the new video games coming out in 2024 will be regularly updated with new titles, release dates, and inevitable delays.

Here’s a look at what the year has in store for upcoming games coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox Series X, and other current gaming platforms.
