2017: A Year in Preview

With a new year rolling around it is time to look ahead and salivate at what the gaming world has to offer for the next 12 months. 

We've narrowed down what we can into months and quarters to make it a bit easier but as we all know changes may happen at any time, if there is any big announcements the plan is to keep this list updated throughout the year.
We've kept it to Console releases at the moment so as to not create a huge list with PC and early release/different release times.

Another note is the Nintendo Switch, more details will be released later this month along with what we suspect will be some game confirmations and timing details, keep an eye out for that.  


There is no mistaking the most anticipated to kick off the year is Resident Evil 7, also available on PSVR (no thank you!) Kingdom Hearts gets closer to that magical number 3 and Gravity Rush 2 will have us inspired once again. Let's not forget The Flame in the Flood finally makes its way to the PS4.

If there isn't something this month for you to love you're a hard one to crack.
