December is very rarely a big month for gamers. After all, most of the biggest releases of the year will have come in the previous few months in the build up to the holiday season. Publishers usually do not want to put their latest game on store shelves knowing that people are far more likely to be buying the biggest titles of the year as gifts for their families and friends. However, there are still a few big hitters coming during December that are aiming to make their way into Christmas stockings over the coming weeks.

As has become traditional for this time of year, November sees a whole host of new titles coming to consoles and PC. Although many of them are not exactly AAA releases, there are a few big hitters that are coming to store shelves.
Now that the summer months are out of the way and we are starting to approach the holiday period, developers and publishers are now beginning to push out their big hitting franchises. October is set to see a whole host of AAA titles alongside some smaller games, so there should be plenty to keep you occupied over the coming weeks.
The summer is now over and that doesn’t just mean that the weather is set to get colder over the coming months but publishers and developers are now beginning to prepare to get some of their biggest releases of the year out of the door. September often sees a gluttony of titles making their way to players across all platforms and it appears that this year will be no exception.
Unlike July, which saw only a few major releases, August is chockablock with games that range from sequels to highly acclaimed franchises to brand new interpretations of classic properties. There are even a few titles that have never been seen before and are making their debut. In particular, the PlayStation 4 is set to see a whole host of independent and retail releases this month, though the Xbox One will still be getting some love with multiplatform games.
March is generally the time when publishers start to release high profile products again after the relative lulls of January and February. This March is no different, although there are few real blockbuster titles coming this year compared to others.
December is never generally a month that sees a great deal of blockbuster titles releasing. The vast majority of the big hitters will have released in the previous three months, with the likes of Star Wars Battlefront, Halo 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Rise of the Tomb Raider. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any games worth your while just before Christmas though, this year is seeing some of the most anticipated games of 2015.
November traditionally sees plenty of big releases as publishers look to get their products out in time for Christmas. This year is no different, making it most exciting month of the year so far for gamers.
Now that we are approaching Christmas, many of the biggest franchises are set to receive sequels in the coming months and October is no different. The likes of Assassin’s Creed and Halo will see new games in the next month while old favourites such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero are set to return.

July is set to be a little less hectic as there are far fewer major releases on the horizon, although there is still plenty to get excited about.
