Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

When wrapping up any E3, it can probably be difficult for players to separate what was completely new and announced at the show, known games that were given a launch date, known games that still have no launch date, and the games we’re looking forward to that didn’t have an E3 presence.

So here’s a guide of the major releases shown at E3. We may have missed some things. We’ll update the list if we did. It’s mainly intended as a recap of the big launches coming that were shown in Los Angeles. (For example, that’s why Red Dead Redemption 2 — which we all know is on the way Oct. 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One — isn’t below. It wasn’t shown there, but then, E3 really isn’t Rockstar Games’ style.)

Anyway, here’s what your calendar looks like for the next six or so months, and what you can expect beyond that. Plan accordingly. Big things are on the move.
