October Is Going To Be An Insane Month For Video Games

Civilization: Beyond Earth will come out on October 24, publisher 2K Games announced today. And if your immediate reaction to that news is to wonder why everything is coming out in October, you're not alone.

The story is too old to be commented.

@Mike Nice list.

I'm looking at

Ac Unity

That's all I can get for that month.

bouzebbal1358d ago

DriveClub and maybe Evil Within for me.

SG1_dapunisherX1358d ago

Good list. For me it goes:

Borderlands: PS
The Evil Within

What is with October 7th & 21st?! That's just messed up.

robtion1358d ago

It's really stupid. Barely any games to play for most of this year then there will be too many games in October. Sales for many of the games will be hurtby the surplus of titles releasing then the companies will complain when they don't sell enough.

Shadow of Mordor
Dragon Age inc
Maybe the Evil Within

Everything else will have to wait, only so many hours in a day.

theDivision1358d ago


I agree I think destiny was very smart releasing a month earlier than all of those it should really help their sales. The only thing to keep me entertained until September will be TLOU so both those games should see good sales. You all are right though I think it will hurt other games due to people having to choose what to get.

ArchangelMike1358d ago (Edited 1358d ago )


I really don't understand why publishers choose to publish their games practically at the same time, and on the same day even!!!

What's so special about October? Why not August and September? I will never understand :s

robtion1358d ago


TLOU is amazing. I may buy it again depending on how significant the upgrade is on ps4.


Not to mention the other 9 months of the year. Some very poor thinking going on with these companies. If history is any indication they will never learn.

You can afford DriveClub, just get the PS+ version for free! :) then you can buy the full version later :D

starchild1358d ago (Edited 1358d ago )

Far Cry 4 actually comes out in November if I'm not mistaken. But, yeah, October is a crazy month.

I can't wait for:
Alien Isolation (PC)
Dragon Age Inquisition (PC)
Assassin's Creed Unity (PC)
Shadow of Mordor (PC)
Destiny (PS4)

beerzombie1358d ago
