A large volume of games did not see their respective release dates in 2015 due to unforeseen events. This 2016, it appears that the PS4, Xbox One and PC players will have even more titles to choose from as the delayed titles will each see their respective launches. In the console generation, nobody enjoys waiting for games, especially the titles coming from favourite developers.

The games delayed in 2015 were “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – CD Projekt RED,” “The Order: 1886,” “Batman: Arkham Knight,” “Tom Clancy’s: The Division,” “Mad Max,” “Quantum Break” and “Dying Light.”

Here’s a list of delayed games so far that are most likely to release this year. It seems like the players who’ve been waiting to play their favourite games won’t have to wait anymore.

“Tom Clancy’s The Division”

Players take the role of agents from a secret agency called The Division where they are forced to combat a man-made virus and the effects caused by it. “Tom Clancy’s The Division” beta is expected to start Jan. 29. Fans can obtain the beta access key for “Tom Clancy’s The Division” from this week’s Humble Bundle. “Tom Clancy’s The Division” is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on March 8.

“No Man’s Sky”

The game throws players into an infinite universe to explore and survive the new planets and galaxies. Last month, PlayStation released a gameplay footage in which Sony Entertainment President Shuhei Yoshida was playing the game with Sean Murray, managing director for Hello Games. “No Man’s Sky “is expected to release on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC sometime in June.

“The Last Guardian”

Players take control of a young boy discovering his beloved friend in a mystical environment. The pair must rely on each other on their journey through the ruins and towers filled with unknown dangers. The emotional story is touching and this journey of friendship and trust is coming exclusively on PlayStation 4 this year according to PlayStation blog.

“Homefront: The Revolution”

“Homefront: The Revolution” puts players into a place where the disastrous events in the United States enabled the Korean People’s Army to attack the nation. A few days ago, a reservation card was spotted that revealed the release date of “Homefront: The Revolution.” According to the card, the game will release on May 17. The game will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS platforms.

“Dead Island 2”

Developed in Unreal Engine 4, “Dead Island 2” offers an open world survival experience with amazing settings, four-player co-op and challenging combats. The game was revealed at Sony's E3 news conference in June 2014 by Deep Silver. Later, the release was delayed into 2016. “Dead Island 2” will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

It seems like video game delays have become an unwanted part of the game development cycle. In 2013, a few games including “Rayman: Legends,” “Watch Dogs,” “South Park: The Stick of Truth” and “Driveclub” were pushed into 2014. In 2014, a number of publishers and developers pushed the release of their games by half a year or more. Finally, the mentioned games are coming this year.
