February 15th – An overcrowded day for game releases.

As someone who might be classed as a collector when it comes to games, I noticed how expensive February can be for games, more specifically. One day.

February 15th.

The day after Valentines, perhaps the publishers thought it might be a good idea to cheer up solos.

Do you know how many games are going to be playable on February 15th?


Six games will be playable on February 15th. I chose playable carefully because technically only five are being released that day.

  • Crackdown 3
  • Dead or Alive 6
  • Far Cry: New Dawn
  • Jump Force
  • Metro Exodus.

And then we have the early access to Anthem, if you are an Origin Premier member.


That’s a lot of ground to cover.

So in total, we have four open world free roaming games (you can minus Metro Exodus if you’d like as it’s technically not “open-world”), all in one day.

A throwback to an article I wrote a while ago, where I discussed if single-player games are getting too big. I came to the conclusion, no they are not, if properly crafted.

But four large explorable games in a single day. That’s a bit much.


A day to fight for.

Then we have two fighting games on the same day, are they competing against each other? On one side we have a well established and loved franchise, and another breaking boundaries with anime characters in a realistic world.

Although to be honest, I’m excited to see how that turns out.


Six games are a lot for one day, is it accidental, or strategic placement.

Maybe you’re a solo and think this is great?

Let me know below.
