5 Biggest Game Releases of Holiday 2016 : Holiday games season is in full swing. Over the past few years, it seems as if big game releases are gradually shifting back from the typical packed November to an overstuffed October.
This October brought Mafia III, Paper Mario: Color Splash, Gears of War 4, Dragon Quest Builders, WWE 2K17, Rise of the Tomb Raider (PS4), Battlefield 1, Civilization VI, World of Final Fantasy, and Titanfall 2, along with PSVR, and a slew of remasters and definitive editions.
We are more than midway through a less chaotic November: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Dishonored 2, Watch Dogs 2, Pokemon Sun and Moon, as well as the PS4 Pro, and the much sought after NES Mini.
This past month and a half has been one of best holiday seasons we’ve seen in a long time on the software front. There’s quite obviously enough to occupy your time already, but there are still several big games on the horizon before we close out the year.
Final Fantasy XV
This long-awaited entry into the titular Square Enix franchise has suffered from multiple delays across its roughly 10-year development cycle. Way back in 2006, what would become XV was a PS3 spinoff entitled, Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
After all this time, it finally arrives on November 29th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For some, this will is Square’s last chance to show that they can still produce worthwhile Japanese RPGs–especially when considering that Atlus’s Persona 5 is knocking on the door in Spring 2017.
