November Game Release Calendar


November is a big month for gaming, the holiday season for spending money has enticed publishers to hold their best stuff for the end of the year. But 2013 is especially important because after 8 long years we are getting a new generation of game systems, both launching in the same month within a week of each other. (PS4 on Nov. 15th and Xbox One on Nov. 22nd). This has made the calendar pretty hectic as publishers want to put games on the shiny new consoles but also don’t want to alienate the millions of gamers who won’t immediately get them. So for the next year or two we’ll see what are known as “Cross-Gen” games that release on both the old and new systems. This will die down over time and the release dates across all systems will sync up better than this month as publishers have tended to release the same game on 3 or more different platforms on 3 or more different dates. Notable titles this month from the big 3 are Forza Motorsport 5 on Xbox One, Killzone: Shadowfall on the PlayStation 4, and Super Mario: 3D Land on the Wii-U. Activision will be looking to take some of those world record breaking sales from Grand Theft Auto V with Call of Duty Ghosts which is out on everything and EA is hoping to cut into their profits with Battlefield 4. We’ll also see the return of the long dormant NBA Live 14 series this month on next gen and also of note is the first story Downloadable Content for the game of the year contender, Bioshock Infinite, called “Burial at Sea.” If you are a gamer, get used to the idea of being broke by December.
