The RPGs of 2019: Every RPG and their release dates

Another year, another varied and exciting round of RPGs to look forward to. After some strong releases in 2018 like Dragon Quest XI and Valkyria Chronicles 4, there are more highly anticipated games right around the corner. After a slight delay, Kingdom Hearts III kicks off 2019 with a bang, and there will certainly be more surprises in the coming months. As has become a tradition for RPG Site, we wanted to compile all the RPGs set to release in the upcoming year.

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 2019 and will be updated regularly throughout the year. Games that do not have confirmed English localizations or have not yet been announced with 2019 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!
