Biggest PC Games to Play in 2021 and Beyond
Even as consoles begin to transition to a new generation, PC is still its own standout platform for gaming with plenty going for it. All Xbox console exclusives and a few PlayStation console exclusives will be made available on PC, and most (if not all) big name multiplatform games also find their way to PC. On top of that, you get some truly unique experience that you can’t find on consoles. And if you can get your hands on the latest wave of video cards from Nvidia and AMD, PC games can even exceed the graphical fidelity and performance of the new-gen systems. So, as we look into 2021 in the video above, we highlight the biggest PC games going into the new year.
Some of the notable multiplatform games we’re looking forward to include Hitman 3, Nier: Replicant, Back 4 Blood, Far Cry 6, Resident Evil: Village, and Hogwarts Legacy, and so much more. PC also stands out for featuring console exclusives from both PlayStation and Xbox. For example, The Medium, Scorn, and Halo: Infinite are games that’ll boast the power of Xbox Series X|S but will simultaneously launch on PC. And games such as Deathloop (timed), Guilty Gear Strive, Kena: Bridge of Spirits are marquee PlayStation titles that’ll launch on PC, too. It’s like having the best of both worlds. Another surprising game that will land on PC is Persona 5 Strikers, given that the original RPG remains a PlayStation exclusive. One PC exclusive to pay attention to is Humankind, which looks to shuffle around the traditional formula of the 4X strategy genre that we’ve seen domination by the Civilization franchise.
The roster is much bigger than that and there’s plenty to be excited for in 2021 if you have a gaming PC, so be sure to check everything out in the video above, and take note of which ones strike your fancy. These are just the games that currently have a release date or release window in 2021, so there may be more surprises throughout the year. For a full list of the upcoming PC games in 2021 and beyond, be sure to check it out on GameSpot.com.

After cyberpunk 2077 I get depressed by the word pre-order.
where is Scorn?
See title "Biggest PC Games to Play in 2021 and Beyond" click on the video, OH! yeah can't wait to see some of these PC exclusive only games…….oh nevermind
I’m going to build a pc now. It’s the way to go. Most exclusives on PS and Xbox eventually end up on PC anyway. Before you know it they’ll all be on PC. Microsoft already does it and now Sony is edging towards that as well.
Happy New Year's, GameSpot! Looking forward towards your content here in 2021!
Edit title: Biggest budgets for Hype in 2021 and Beyond
Dying Light 2 ???
I'm excited for Deathloop. But after the Cyberpunk letdown of 2020 I'm not buying any game until I watch a gameplay video from a trustworthy youtuber
None of the games on the list interest me the least.
Death loop looks so dumb
Dying light 2?
Make sure to preorder every game, you don't know when they're gonna run out of virtual copies to sell!
How is there zero gameplay from Far Cry when it supposed to be released in a months time
The beat is straight 🔥 Where can I find it?!
Don’t forget Beyond Good and Evil 2. I don’t know if a release date, but hopefully it’s in 2021!
Ratchet and clank rift apart
Project athia (coming to pc)
Kena bridge of spirits (coming to pc)
Horizon zero dawn forbidden west
Immortals Fenyx Rising (multi plat)
Price of Persia Remake (multi plat)
Biomutant (multi plat)
Mass Effect Remaster (multi plat)
Far Cry 6
Shadow Warrior 3
Unknown Awakening (don’t know enough)
Cutting together a bunch of game trailers does not a story (or journalism) make. Audio commentary on the games is sorely needed . Poor effort. Might as well phone it in.
In my case, I am only interested in Guilty Gear Strive and Back 4 Blood
Gotham Knights is all I need!!
persona 5 strikers, POP SOT remake, kena BOS, ghostwire tokyo, hogwarts legacy, psychonauts 2, vampire the masquerade bloodlines 2, unknown 9.
and the rest of me are all a skip. 8 games for 2021 are enough.
I am the only one hating remakes? We need fcking new games not remakes
The fact that not everyone is a PC gamer is confusing to me. Like… how? Why?
That list has some weird choices for biggest games to play
Only legend know about the Thumbnail
Sort of scratching my head why we haven’t gotten any new news on FC6. I get it got pushed back but still. Nothing?
Scorn will be the game of the year
Remakes and updates should not have been included, as they are not 2021 and beyond games.
I can't believe that Hollow Knight: Silksong is not on this list.
you forget lots of games
Halo infinite no doubt
Yakuza 3-5 remasters on January 28th and Yakuza 6 on March 25th
whait, Persona 5, psychonauts 2, tokio ghostwire, are those really coming to pc? I thought this were ps5 exclusives
Kellie Plagge is intellectually defunct.
Please add Persian language to video games. We Iranians are not bad with the world, just give us a government, please.😭
Support guys 🙁
Oh man can't wait for Far cry 6
can't wait for p5s
cant wait for bee movie 2
bruh gus frank in far cry smh
No Dragon Age this year?
Shadow warrior 3 and vampire masquerade…looking forward to..
Chanting- Stalker 2!! Stalker 2!! Stalker 2!! Stalker 2!! Stalker 2!!……..
fire your sound guy
Trailers, no gameplay and copy past name of games by other youtubers… gg
i dont understand nothing from this video. dislike.
The ''Rainbow Six'' franchise is NOT what it used to be. They should've stuck with the style of ''Vegas'' or at least continue that series.
I was really looking forward to another great Far Cry game …………………….BUT>>>>>>>>>Another flop from Ubisoft, actually pretty lame!!
I wont be purchasing this one.
Where can I find the song here can anyone help ?
