Happy new year! It's time to look ahead to another year in gaming, and 2021 looks like it could be another good one. For PlayStation 4 and PS5, things are starting fairly quietly, however. In January and February, there aren't too many new releases, but among them are some sure-fire winners. Below, we've outlined all the current- and last-gen games you can look forward to over the next couple of months.

Hitman 3 - 20th January
The recent Hitman games are some of the best sandbox experiences on PS4, and that looks set to continue with the latest entry. Hitman 3, coming to PS5 and PS4, has you playing once again as deadly assassin Agent 47, tasked with taking out targets in myriad murderous missions. If you've played the previous two titles, all your data will carry forward, and PSVR owners can even play the full PS4 version in virtual reality. Good work, 47.
Outriders - 2nd February
Outriders is a brand new IP from Square Enix, and one that may be worth your attention. It's a sci-fi third person shooter, sharing a little DNA with the likes of Destiny. Coming from developer People Can Fly (Bulletstorm), the game takes you to a hostile planet named Enoch, which bestows special powers to your character. With these new abilities and a range of otherworldly weapons, there's a co-op or single player story to work through and plenty of other activities besides.
Riders Republic - 25th February
Remember Steep, the sandbox winter sports game? Riders Republic builds on that premise, branching it out to encompass a much broader range of outdoor activities. You'll play online with lots of other adrenaline junkies, competing in sports like skiing, cycling, gliding, and more. If you're down for some easy going extreme sports (and no doubt lots of post-launch support), this could be what you're after.

What PS5 and PS4 games are you planning to buy in the next few weeks? Tell us in the comments section below.
Still very curious about Outriders. Gonna wait for some reviews before jumping in, though.
After meh GodFall did not hold any of my cousins or co-workers attention, I hope Outriders is good 🤞
We need an online co-op game (Single player is fine with Hitman 3)
Age of Calamity gameplay bored me to death, I have given up on ever liking a Warrior game.
I'll wait for PS4 SaveWizard Persona Striker codes and rent it. Just God Mode trough it for the story.
You haven't included the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game - Complete Edition for ps4 which is out on January 14th
I hope that the Nioh Collection is a massive sales failure at 70 bucks.
Hitman 3 is one of my most anticipated for 2021. So excited to have the full trilogy on PS5
Will Hitman 3 saves work on both the PS5 and PS4 versions? I want PSVR and PS5 versions using the same save data if I get it.
Can’t believe Hitman comes out in just over 2 weeks, it’s come around so quickly. Seriously looking forward to that. The Sands of Time remake looked kinda awful in the original trailer but perhaps they’ve improved it in the months since.
@nessisonett I highly doubt they improved it in a few months but maybe I'm wrong.
Hitman 3 is the big one for me. I might also give Persona 5 Strikers a try.
Really looking forward to Hitman 3. I love these games and how creative you can be in tackling each mission.
Horizon Zero Dawn Forbidden West.
Persona Strikers is the one for me..shame no storybook though.
I'm interested in Outriders.Would love a demo.
Looking forward to playing Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood: The Bargain Bin
Didn't realise Riders Republic was out so soon. Can't wait to learn more about that. Really looking forward to Hitman 3 as well.
Forgot about Outriders. Curious if that's gonna be any good
I'm not sure why Outriders is always compared to Destiny. Sure the coop part and shlooter thing but Third pers perspective and single player story focus are big differences I think.
Well I cant stand FPS so that's why I feel that way I guess.
@Nepp67 @nessisonett I've removed Sands of Time from this article — I completely forgot it was delayed to March!
@Quintumply No worries, you're all good!
Completely forgot Outriders even existed. Im all in for Hitman 3, but the games "shrunken" size at 100gb! means im waiting for the PS5 SSD expansion before I even consider getting it.
I only plan to buy Persona 5 Strikers day one, if I can make myself finish Persona 5 Royal in time.
