Games to Watch Out For This June

The Last of Us 2 Joel

The world is a bit of a mess right now, but if you need an escape, there are games on the way that will provide one.

June is generally a quiet month for game releases – in normal years it’s a month more known for announcements. And while we’re sure plenty of announcements are still going to be made this month despite the cancellation of E3, there are more than enough game releases on the way to keep you occupied too. Like The Last of Us Part II.

Want more? Here are the games to watch out for this June.
