2019 is shaping up to be a momentous year, and as we profiled just the other day in the first half of this two-part special, the first six months are looking like they're going to be rather fun. For reasons obvious to one and all, we know less about the second half of 2019 and the games we'll get to play towards the end of the year, but nevertheless, we've amassed a fairly optimistic look at what will and what might land from July and onwards.
Shenmue 3 (PC, PS4) - August 27
The long-awaited return of Ryo Hazuki has been delayed a few times, and we wouldn't be surprised if it slips once more from its August 27 release date. As far as fans are concerned though, it's all about delivering a quality continuation to the adventures that started nearly two decades ago on Dreamcast.
FIFA 20 (PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One) - Likely September 2019
It would shake the foundations of reality were we not to get a new FIFA in 2019, and while nothing is official we expect the team at EA Canada to unveil the game during the spring. We expect a further implementation of the Champions League license, and we're curious to see where the Journey goes next. Things have been going well on the pitch, but there's always room for improvement.
Call of Duty 2019 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) - Likely October 2019
This year we're getting an Infinity Ward developed Call of Duty. Speculation points to either Modern Warfare 4 or Ghosts 2, boots on the ground or boots all around. Perhaps the most interesting thing will be whether it features a campaign or not and whether there will be some kind of battle royale mode á la Blackout. So far we have no solid details, but we expect Activision to rev up the hype machine sometime this spring.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PC, PS4, Xbox One) - Holiday 2019
We know very little about Respawn's upcoming Star Wars title beyond the name we'll see on the box and its release window. What we do know is that it is set after Episode III, a very bad time to be a Jedi in A Galaxy Far, Far Away and the hope is this will be something of a successor to the popular Jedi Knight titles.
