Upcoming releases: games December 2021

In addition to cold, December is a month of holidays and Christmas shopping, and the video game industry, like the rest, knows it. And although we can still find some quite powerful and interesting releases to close the year, it seems that all of them are concentrated before the shopping season, closing with little strength the releases of this 2021.

So, arriving with the month just started, in this list of upcoming releases we can find some of the games already available, although as always we will review all the upcoming titles that we consider are some of the most relevant, chronologically ordered by their release date.
