A new year approaches, and as we move into 2021 we’re also expecting a new wave of video games to release in that time. January is usually a quiet month for PC gamers as the month after Christmas is hard to justify even more spending. Thankfully though, there are still some pretty good titles launching, so here’s a list of the biggest games coming out in January 2021…

There’s not much to really look forward to in January, but there’s still a couple heavy hitters that will surely get some gamers excited. For one, Hitman 3 will be coming out in January which will definitely be the biggest release of the month, followed by Bloober Team’s The Medium and the Yakuza Remastered Collection for PC.

---------------

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale - January 12th / PC

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game Complete Edition - January 14th / PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Stadia

The new stronghold somehow manages to look worse (animation-wise, anyway) than the old ones... Surely the dev team behind the original gems is long-gone...

Didn't know Hitman 3 is already coming so soon. Still on the fence about it, I really want it, but I really don't wanna support that shietstain Sweeney.

If there was ever a game concept that screams this should be co-op with the split screen and with a player in each reality solving the puzzles between them to progress this would be it. It's certainly what a potential sequel should aim for imo.

Hitman being a EGS exclusive just Hitmanned itself.


The devs just love to piss off their fans be it with awful online only DRM or signing exclusivity deals with Epic and Sony.

I am not trying to be a prick, but why do people care that much if games are EGS exclusive?

There's a lot of reasons not to like them. Being anti-consumer with them removing games from different operating system, them buying massive anti-cheats and removing support for other operating systems. Them making third-party games exclusive to their store even though it was mentioned to be on Steam or backed by other people. Exclusives are also generally bad on a PC platform which is considered to be an open platform.


There's also issues with them not knowing how to make a store front / launcher properly and also snooping on people's PCs to scan for Steam files the unofficial way. A lot of people seem to dislike Tim Sweeny too for things he does and says.


It's not hard to have or find a reason not to like them, I'm sure there's a ton more reasons out there. Also, the majority of people that don't like them wouldn't want to reward them for their bad practices or for stuff that goes against their own moral compass.
