The biggest games coming out in September 2021

Written by Chad Norton on Fri, Sep 3, 2021 2:28 PM

After a relatively quiet month in August this year, September is back with a vengeance. It seems that this month there is a huge amount of games coming out to look forward to, both big and small. Since there are so many, we’ve broken them down into the biggest games list along with a few honorable mentions.

Although it was listed in last month’s article, New World was quickly delayed by a month and is once again one of the biggest to look forward to, but this time it’s stacking up against the likes ofDeathloop, NBA 2K22Diablo 2 Resurrected and more. But before we jump straight in, here’s a list of honorable mentions, either because they’re not the biggest releases of the month or are simply not on PC (yet):

  • Bus Simulator 21 - September 7th / PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
  • FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch - September 7th / PC (coming soon), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5
  • Lost in Random - September 10th / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch
  • Eastward - September 16th / PC, Nintendo Switch
  • Aragami 2 - September 17th / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S
  • Tails of Iron - September 17th / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch
  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits - September 21st / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5

Might not be one of the "biggest" games but I'm pretty interested in how Game Dec will turn out. Listed as Sep. 15th release.

Ye, my missis wants to play Deathloop together - looks pretty funky! Not sure about the new LiS, since I really liked LiS1, 2 sucked (at least the episodes I tried) and this one seems a bit weird with the power of compassion or whatever xD

Its all about speaking your truth and that will set you free. That's the theme of this one. And I say this as someone with brown skin, that is just too much BS and political correctness for me. LIS 1 was fantastic, 2 was ok but kinda boring and this one seems really sucky but I could be wrong.

I don't know what it is with games as of late, is it the devs or the money people, but there's definitely been an uncomfortable push of certain agendas here and there with a few games. I'm not an angery gamerr, so I really don't care if my protagonist is brown, white, red, blue or green, I don't care what the gender, etc, but just...make it natural within the context of the game! Some releases (and if not the game itself - then it's the marketing material) seem to lack that nuance, as if it's the agenda that sells and not the game/story itself. Someone lost the plot of what the games are really about. But hey-ho - it's easy to vote with thy wallet, brother, maybe that'll work out for the best in the end 👍


P.S.: I wish someone brought back sassy ladies like Cate Archer from NOLF... Tasteful, fun and all-round badass 👌

Cate Archer! Now that's an old flame which still burns bright to this day 😃


Yeah sadly there is a lot of agenda-pushing going on be it in terms of race, gender, orientation or identity. Take Bioshock Infinite for example, it is a game where you shoot alternate history fictional racists in the face so to speak but that's not why I loved the game. I loved it because Booker, Elizabeth, their bond, the stoy, the set pieces, the writing and yes the villains. If the villains didn't get to be as free as they did with the attitude then I wouldn't have been so motivated to do what I had to do for Elizabeth.


On the other hand The Division 2 starts with a cutscene asking if the player or their neighbor owned firearms when society broke down? Who survived and who didn't? In real life my answer could be very different on that issue but I am willing to suspend my disbelief for a fictional sotry set in a game. I always approach games with an open-mind. Let the bad guys be bad and don't push narratives. Build a good game with a compelling story without making the agenda the focus like The Last of Us 2.


They key word here is fictional.
