Let the fall of productivity begin!

Update: Changed a few release dates and put the list behind a “more” link.

I predict productivity may fall over the next few months as we begin to see an incredible line-up of games begin to come out over the next few months, leading into Christmas.

All dates listed are ship dates according to EBGames.com, it is entirely possible (and likely in some cases) that the dates are completely made up. Links go straight to EB’s product pages, they are not referral links

These are only games I’m interested in or know lots of people will be interested in.

August 3rd – Doom 3
August 31st – Star Ocean: Till the End of Time
August 31st – Phantom Brave (follow-up to Disgaea: Hour of Darkness)
September 7th – Silent Hill 4: The RoomPS2
September 14th – Fable
September 14th – Call of Duty: United Offensive
September 21st – Final Fantasy XI: Chains of Promathia ExpansionPS2
September 27th – Shadow Hearts Covenant

  1. Don’t forget the Pirates! remake.

  2. Doh! I can’t believe I forgot about that one. If the original is the game I think it, I never got very far in it.

    I’ll definately have to check out the demo when it comes out.

  3. What no Pro Evolution Soccer 4? Shame on You!

  4. Odd, EB Games, Amazon (US), and Gamestop don’t even list it. Must be a targetted release, which is a shame; there needs to be more serious competition than EA’s Fifa and Winning Eleven.

    Amazon UK came to the rescue though.
