It looks like your wallet isn’t going to get any rest in March as there are plenty more games on the way. There’s so many that I’ve decided to go with a list of 15 rather than the usual 10. Again there’s big releases across all the major platforms and games to suit all types of players.
Of all of the March releases, I’m most looking forward to Generation Zero. I’m also keen to check out Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.
Here’s a full list of my 15 games to watch out for in March 2019:
