The RPGs of 2021: Every RPG and their release dates

If you are looking for the 2020 RPG list, click here.

Here we list the upcoming RPGs we expect to see in 2021. Many have not been dated yet, but this listing will often be updated up to and through 2021.

Now - we know - defining what exactly is an 'RPG' is can be a little tricky. While some of the games below may not best be labeled as an 'RPG', we wanted to include games that have evident role-playing elements. We allow for a little bit of wiggle room.

Let us also note: our list only includes games with confirmed English versions set to release in 2021 and will be updated regularly throughout the year. Games that do not have confirmed English localizations or have not yet been announced with 2021 release plans will not be included.

Find the list below. Feel free to let us know in the comments if you see any omissions or mistakes!
