The Most Exciting Games Releases In February 2024

A surprisingly big month!

It’s hard to believe we’re already into the second month of 2024, and while it once seemed as though this year was going to be kinder than the last in terms of delivering a barrage of top-notch games with not enough time to play them, February is not playing around.

It’s particularly bad/incredible if you’re an RPG fan with many of us still working through Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, only to have the double-header of Granblue Fantasy Relink and Persona 3 Reload dropping in the first couple of days and then the mammoth Final Fantasy VII Rebirth mere weeks away on the horizon. In-between is a pretty diverse line-up of games with everything from action and shooting to strategy, sailing, puzzle-solving and a heap more. Check it all out below:
