All notable game releases for January 2019.

It’s a new year, and along with it comes a plethora of new games to look forward to. January isn’t usually a busy period for game releases as it comes just after the holidays. However, there’s actually quite a lot of releases to look forward to this year. So let’s get right to it. Here are all the notable game releases for January 2019. We’ll take a look at the highlights first:
