Checking in on some of next year's most notable releases 

PC games we're looking forward to playing in 2021

Is KSP2 really going to pull off online multiplayer? Considering the complexity of the original it's a lofty goal, but it's the biggest reason we're excited for this rocket-building sequel. KSP2 is aiming to be more accessible, which is a relief to those of us terrified by complex physics. 

Kerbal Space Program 2

The chrome dome killer is back to finish the World of Assassination trilogy. Hitman 2 had some of the most inventive contracts in the entire series, and an early glimpse at a hit in an English manor suggests 47 hasn't lost his killer touch.

Hitman 3

This could be one of the most gripping—and horrifying—shooters of next year. Well, if this survival horror FPS actually comes out in 2021. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, it's been plagued by delays over its decade-long development cycle.

Stalker 2

Fatshark did a terrific job with co-op brawler Vermintide, so we can't wait to see what the studio does with this 40K shooter. Vermintide's guns were also excellent, which bodes well for Darktide.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide
