April is coming to a close, and with it, we've seen the launch of Quantum Break, Dark Souls III, DiRT Rally, Ratchet & Clank, and All Blacks Rugby Challenge 3. Now, it's time to look ahead to what May has in store.
Next month sees the launch of highly anticipated titles like Battleborn (May 3), Uncharted 4 (May 10), Doom (May 13), Fire Emblem Fates (May 21), and Overwatch (May 24). Mirror's Edge Catalyst was also scheduled to be out in May, but it's been delayed until June.
