New Games Releasing This Week: January 30 - February 5


Don’t know what games are coming out this week? Don’t worry! We here at have you covered, organising some of the biggest releases into one handy article. Remeber, you'll also get VIP points for following games – so make sure to add these ones too!

Picking are slim this week, as most major releases are slated for later in the month. If you've yet to dive into Hitman, developer IO Interactive and publisher Square Enix are putting out a physical release, bundling all of the game's current content onto one disc. If you're looking for something a little cuter, Poochy and Yoshi's Woolly World -- the handheld version of the Wii U title -- is making its way to 3DS.

For a broader look at what's coming out this month, make sure to check out the February 2016 Game Release Schedule. For an overview of the year, check out the 2017 Game Release Schedule, which we'll periodically be updating.

Note: While this list is intended to be as comprehensive as possible, it is difficult to cover everything, especially with the growing prominence of downloadable and indie games. The dates of some releases can also shift around. If you notice anything that's missing, please let us know in the comments, or by emailing
