The 2016 game release schedule

Another year, another set of new games to eagerly anticipate. Below you'll find a list of all the big names and dates we currently know about. There'll be some stuff missing and some things that will move around, because that's just the nature of releases. I've also left off as yet unconfirmed yearly things like FIFA, COD and so on. Just until we have something more concrete.

We'll update as the year goes on but if you do think we've missed anything obvious, or if something changes suddenly, let us know and we'll add things as we go.
