New PC games in 2023: this year’s upcoming releases

Must read

Sure, it’s terrifying that 2023 is halfway through, but new PC games are as good a consolation as anything. June’s immediately popping off with two massive launches, Street Fighter 6 and Diablo 4 releasing in the first week alone. Don’t forget the future, though: It’s the-season-formerly-known-as-E3, after all. Be sure to check out our summer 2023 showcase schedule so you can keep current on the games coming our way.

Best of the best

2023 games: Upcoming releases
Best PC games: All-time favorites
Free PC games: Freebie fest
Best FPSes: Finest gunplay
Best MMOs: Massive worlds
Best RPGs: Grand adventures

Of course, we’re in the age of game delays, and we’ve only seen more during the pandemic years. It’ll be no surprise if a lot of these games get their release dates knocked back for some extra polish. If they’re lucky, it’ll just be one delay. Not all of them are lucky.

Still, even if some of these dates are tentative, 2023 is shaping up to be a huge year—particularly for RPGs. A lot of major releases and long-in-the-works sequels are targeting this year: Starfield‘s delay has us waiting for launch until September, Baldur’s Gate 3‘s early access is planned to end with a full release in August, and of course Diablo 4 is scheduled to turn up too.

Hit the ground running and fill up your schedule with all the new games of 2023:

Biggest new PC games this month

June’s celebrating the year’s halfway point with a front-loaded lineup of massive releases, thanks to some returning royalty. Each a hallmark of their respective genres, Street Fighter 6 and Diablo 4 kick the month’s door in with back-to-back launches. But whatever your tastes, June’s got something for you: Looking for a dating sim with a Fallen London twist? Try out Mask of the Rose. Need to start your summer with a farm sim? Play the series that inspired Stardew when Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life hits Steam.

Street Fighter 6 | June 2
It’s a new age for Street Fighter: new approachable control styles, new custom fighter singleplayer experiences, new dive gauge mechanics. And most importantly, for Ryu, a new beard.

Diablo 4 | June 6
All aboard the Hell train, folks: we’ve got loot to hoard. Return to the legendary ARPG series and mulch mounds of demons across an open world as one of five classic classes. Maybe as a bear, if you’re a druid.

Image

Mask of the Rose | June 8
Descend once more into the chthonic metropolis of Fallen London—and maybe find romance? In Failbetter’s dating sim/murder mystery/census-taking simulator, meet a gothic undercity’s worth of colorful characters: some cloaked, some tentacled. Some, assuredly both.

For the rest of the releases locked in this month, check out our June release dates section below.
