Upcoming video games 2020: June release dates

June is right around the corner, and so are over two dozen promising new video games. Buckle up, gamers, because there’s a lot to look forward to. The Outer Worlds took PlayStation, Xbox, and PC gamers by storm back in October, and the sprawling space adventure quickly became a Daily Dot favorite. Now, it’s coming to Switch.

Moreover, Desperados III, a ruthlessly tactical Wild West game, is hitting shelves in mid-June—as is The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor. Other anticipated titles to look out for include apocalyptic first-person shooter Disintegration; ninja tournament extravaganza Ninjala; survival horror The Last of Us Part II; lethal tactical shooter Valorant; and, of course, Spongebob Squarepants: Bottle for Bikini Bottom — Rehydrated.

June’s definitely going to be a fun month for gaming enthusiasts. Without further ado, here’s every release date you should know about.
