Every game released on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One in 2017

There’s no denying it: 2017 has been this console generation’s best year thus far, and one of the best of all time for video games.

It was also a very evenly-packed year, full of critical and commercials success stories, big and small, from start to finish. Publishers are finally starting to space out big releases, and it’s all the better for it.

We only had a few quiet weeks, but the rest of 2017 was non-stop action.

Whether your love for video games was reinvigorated by the release of the Nintendo Switch and its distinct exclusives, or you placed all your bets on big games, 2017 did not disappoint. This was also the year indie games pushed into AAA territory with titles like Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. And let’s not forget the Xbox One X console launch.

As is the case every year, there have been disappointments and blunders, but you could never say 2017 wasn’t exciting. Now that it’s drawing to a close, it’s time to revisit all those great/terrible moments through the magic of release dates.

Below you’ll find a big list of all 2017 games’ release dates. We’ve included as many of them as we could for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One. As always, these reflect Western release dates.
