The RPGs of 2020: Every RPG and their release dates

If you are looking for the 2019 RPG list, click here.

2019 had some big RPG releases in big franchises like Kingdom Hearts III and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Here we list the upcoming RPGs we expect to see in 2020. Many have not been dated yet, but this listing will often be updated up to and through 2020.

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 2020 and will be updated regularly throughout the year. Games that do not have confirmed English localizations or have not yet been announced with 2020 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!
