Many of the biggest upcoming games are missing this holiday season, intentionally making way for an 800-pound gorilla: „Red Dead Redemption 2,“ the new opus for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from the folks behind „Grand Theft Auto.“
With „RDR2,“ tearing up the charts, major upcoming games like EA’s „Anthem“ and Sony’s „Days Gone“ are getting out of the way, and they’re not the only two.
Here are all the big games bolstering the first months of 2019:
1. „Resident Evil 2“ (Remake)
The long-awaited remake of fan-favorite horror classic „Resident Evil 2“ is nearly ready — it’s set to arrive early in 2019, just like so many other great games currently in development.
„Resident Evil 2“ introduced the world to Leon S. Kennedy (seen above) — the main character in „Resident Evil 4.“ Kennedy and Claire Redfield find themselves in the middle of a surprise zombie outbreak in the fictional town of Raccoon City. It’s an action-packed introduction to many of the major themes of the „Resident Evil“ franchise, and it’s getting gorgeously remade for modern consoles.
Release date: January 25, 2019
Platform(s): PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

2. „Kingdom Hearts 3“
Woody, Buzz, Rex and the rest of the „Toy Story“ gang are moving from film to video games with „Kingdom Hearts 3,“ an upcoming Xbox One and PlayStation 4 action-adventure game.
The game is the long-anticipated third entry in the „Kingdom Hearts“ series — the last major entry, „Kingdom Hearts 2,“ launched all the way back in 2005 on the PlayStation 2. In „Kingdom Hearts,“ various Disney characters and their worlds are mashed up with characters that would be right at home in a „Final Fantasy“ game.
Alongside the cast of „Toy Story“ (and their Earth-like setting), „Kingdom Hearts 3“ also stars Goofy and Donald Duck. You may’ve noticed a third character here — that’s „Sora,“ the main character of „Kingdom Hearts 3“ and who you’ll play as when the game launches in early 2019 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Release date: January 29, 2019
Platform(s): PlayStation 4, Xbox One
