Known as Dragon Ball ProjectZ, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot was officially announced at E3 2019 and is set to release on January 2020. Kakarot is an action-RPG, but also kind of a fighting game. When flying around the world as Goku, it controls like a typical third-person game. When a fight breaks out, perspective shifts to an over-the-shoulder fighting game. Outside combat, you can free roam locations to complete side quests, mine minerals with Ki blasts, and fish.

3. System Shock

As a remake of the 1994 game, System Shock is an upcoming remake that is set to release in the beginning of 2020. After being in development for a while, System Shock was put on hold in February 2018 while Nightdive reassesses its directions and goals.

4. The Last of Us Part II

After months and years of uncertainty, The Last of Us Part II was finally confirmed for a February 2020 release… and now due out on PS4 on 29 May 2020.
Naughty Dog simply said: “At its core, The Last of Us Part II is still very much about Ellie and Joel, but for this reveal, we wanted to showcase several new characters that are integral to their next journey. We’re sure you have many questions after watching this scene. We’re also pretty sure that we’re going to see all sorts of theories about whom these characters are, where and when this scene takes place, and how all of this fits into Ellie and Joel’s next story. For now, we’re keeping mum, but we’re excited to see what y’all make of this piece of the puzzle.”

5. Call of Duty: Black Ops 5

Release Date: Q4 2020

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare isn’t even out yet, but we already know far more than we ought to about Call of Duty 2020, which was reported to have undergone a massive overhaul and shift in development team earlier this year.
According to that leak, Call of Duty 2020 is now going to be the fifth entry in Treyarch’s Black Ops franchise, following the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 last year, after originally being planned for 2021 but being brought forward in light of development trouble at Sledgehammer, who will now be on supporting duties for the title.
