The Fall of Infinite Games 2014 Edition
Now that we have almost made it through the Gaming Dustbowl of 2014, every game ever made will be released throughout the next couple of months. Don't believe me? I made a list:
Released! Endless Legend, strategy: 18th September
Released! WIT! Wasteland 2, CRPG: 19th September
FIFA 15, foot-to-ball: 23rd September
Ancient Space, space strategy (?): 23rd September
Gauntlet, ARPG: 23rd September
Defense Grid 2, tower defense: 23rd September
Stronghold: Crusader 2, strategy: 23rd September
Dark Souls II: Crown of the Ivory King (DLC), ARPG: 24th September
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, adventure: 25th September
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, adventure: 30th September
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Creedlike: 30th September Note: It's a complete clusterfuck of varying release dates depending on console and region but the PC version seems to come out at this date in all regions.
Alien: Isolation, horror: 7th October
Project Spark, ???: 7th October
NBA 2K15, hand-to-ball: 7th October
Costume Quest 2, JRPG (?): 7th October
Styx: Master of Shadows, stealth: 7th October
A Golden Wake, adventure: 9th October
Ryse: Son of Rome, history channel: 10th October
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, FPS: 14th October
The Evil Within, horror: 14th October
Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition/, open world: 14th October
Legend of Grimrock 2, RPG: 15th October
F1 2014, racing: 21st October Note: In a confounding move it actually is named after the year it is released in - unlike every other annual sports franchise.
The Legend of Korra, brawler (?): 21st October
Jagged Alliance: Flashback, tactics: 21st October
Civilization: Beyond Earth, strategy: 24th October
Lords of the Fallen, ARPG: 28th October
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, ARPG: 3rd November
Assassin's Creed: Unity, Creedlike: 11th November
The Crew, racing: 11th November
Pro Evolution Soccer 2015, foot-to-ball: 13th November
World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, MMORPG: 13th November
Far Cry 4, FPS: 18th November
Project CARS, racing: 18th November Note: UK version hits three days later which will probably include the EU in its entirety.
Dragon Age: Inquisition, CRPG: 18th November
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, action-adventure (?): 9th December
Hotline Miami 2, murder simulator
Way of the Samurai 4, ???
Pillars of Eternity, CRPG
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, platformer
Quadrilateral Cowboy, ???
Dragon Fin Soup, RPG/Roguelike
Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey, adventure
Elite: Dangerous, spaceship
Massive Chalice, tactical RPG
Sunless Sea, SeaRPG
Warmachine: Tactics, tactical RPG
Dead State, ZRPG
Satellite Reign, not-Syndicate
Ori and the Blind Forest, platformer
I linked every game to the appropriate tag which mean they will always be up to date. The only exceptions are Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 and Shantae. Instead I linked to their respective wikipedia pages. For some reason RPS doesn't like PES...or genies. The release dates should be fairly accurate at this point although the one or other might get delayed still.
Also, I hope you can forgive the laconic genre descriptions. That is the price you have to pay for me not turning every month name into some endless Septembear/Octobear/Novembear/Decembear joke. I may be cruel and heartless but even I have my limits.
As always, corrections are welcome.
Edit1: Added Jagged Alliance: Flashback and Legend of Grimrock 2.
Edit2: Added Project CARS, Elite: Dangerous, Massive Chalice, Sunless Sea, Warmachine: Tactics, Dead State, Armikrog, Satellite Reign Ori and the Blind Forest, Sealark; removed Hyper Light Drifter (moved to 2015)
Added Released! for official releases and WIT! if there is a Wot-I-Think (review).
Sealark managed to have neither a RPS entry nor a wikipedia page so I linked to the Kickstarter for now.
The entire MIA list remains incredibly speculative.

Thanks for that. Where do you get your info? It can be hard sometimes to get details like this.
Also for someone who buys games almost exclusivly when on sale, there are a worrying amount ill probably just be buying around release.

Both IGN and wikipedia have lists for that but they're very inaccurate. Often I had to go to the developer page for a reliable date. Kickstarter and Early Access games are especially difficult to track down.

I think what's pretty neat is the sheer variety of genres represented there. There's a hell of a lot of offering almost regardless of whatever your taste is. I didn't think Hyper Light Drifter was this year, but that's definitely on my watch list. I think it's also a cross between the 2D styled Zeldas and a platformer. That's not to say it can't be classed as an ARPG, but I think it's more platformer adventure actiony...you know what, ARPG will do fine.
You also get stupendous plus points for your Ryse note.

OT, I'm only really interested in Wasteland 2, the rest is just meh. The Evil Within also looks great, but I don't really like horror games.

The Legend of Grimrock 2 is due on the 15th of October. I believe they've had a timer on the website the last couple of days promising a big announcement and assume that was it.
Remember folks, don't fill up on bread before you get to the turkey! That's a rookie mistake.

To add more doom:
Project CARS, racing, 21st November
Elite Dangerous (spaceness) is also meant to hit release status this year, still lacking a date, and I think Massive Chalice (tactics RPG) is also due.
Sunless Sea (Cthulhu exploretalkdoom?) is currently aiming for December.
Warmachine Tactics (turn based tactics, board/miniature game conversion) is stated as November for full singleplayer, but the current version is so incomplete I expect that will be missed.
On the bright side, there will be a lot of good games to get on sale in the next 6 months, because I can't possible play all the new stuff this year. Things I expect to get around release (assuming they don't tank):
Civilization: It's Civ, I must have it. I even preordered.
World of Warcraft expansion: a few months each expansion is fun, then out again. New expansion means lots of people returning, making it the best time to play.
Lara Croft Temple of Osiris - last one was a lot of fun in coop, this one expands to 4 player. May not end up on PC for online coop reasons but it'll probably be at release.
Of the rest, I imagine I'll get a couple, but it's very undecided right now. I have a few from Kickstarter (Wasteland, Pillars of Eternity, Elite) and someone bought me a Dark Souls 2 season pass that is awaiting a final DLC before being used. I suspect Civ is will consume the end of October and start of September alone.

Then if you play games across most other platforms...it is a very crowded fall.

Elite: Dangerous has a tentative Q4 2014 release date, though that could change.
18-09-2014, 07:06 AM #12
Also worth adding -
Dead State (RPG by Brian Mitsoda of Troika fame - on EA, scheduled to be released Fall 2014)
Sealark - currently scheduled for December 2014.
Barkley 2 - Late 2014, seems on track currently.
Massive Chalice - unspecified 2014.
Armikrog - late 2014.
I also believe Broken Age Part 2 is scheduled for December, but I can't find any confirmation of that in a quick google.
