Every Video Game Release Date for February 2021

January 29, 2021

After the holiday season, the gaming industry generally winds down somewhat. There are fewer big releases, with the focus usually shifting to smaller or indie games. Of course, there are a few exceptions to this rule. That’s even more true when you consider that highly anticipated next-gen consoles have just released. 

With the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S still just a few months old, there are plenty of new games coming out for them. There’s also a solid collection of titles on other platforms, with the Nintendo Switch seeing a big variety of releases. That means that there should be something for everyone in February, even if there are not as many games launching as in other months.

Here is every video game release for February 2021.
