Game Release Dates in January 2017

January is beginning the new year with a solid lineup of some of the most anticipated games to play in 2017, including Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Gravity Rush 2, and much more. With a handful of big games to keep an eye on this month, we’ve compiled all the biggest releases for your convenience. Below you can find brief descriptions of some major upcoming games, as well as a comprehensive table covering each game coming out in January.

Gravity Rush 2 — January 20 (PS4)

The sequel to 2012’s Gravity Rush isn’t defying gravity on PS Vita this month; rather, it’s taking its vertigo-inducing antics to PS4 instead. The upcoming successor once again puts you in control of the super-powered Kat, as she embarks on an epic adventure to defeat the evil forces terrorizing the aerial city of Hekseville.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard — January 24 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a return to form for the time-honored survival horror series. Rather than utilize the more action-focused stylings of recent entries, the game opts for the haunting, atmospheric stylings of earlier games. It puts you in control of Ethan Winters, who is looking for his missing wife. His search eventually leads him to a derelict plantation mansion owned by the Baker family, a cannibalistic group of murderous psychopaths that attack and imprison him.
