Here is our roundup of this week’s new video game releases for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

It’s a packed week for new video games, with three big titles coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The lineup is headlined by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, followed by Obsidian’s ambitious new sci-fi RPG The Outer Worlds and the latest wrestling jamboree from 2K, WWE 2K20.

Although The Outer Worlds is coming to Switch at some point, a release date hasn’t been confirmed. In the meantime, ports of two classic indie games catch our eye. Both Monaco and Skullgirls were big hits first time around and we welcome the chance to revisit them.

Here are our picks for each console platform. We also have an update on the latest games to come to the Apple Arcade subscription service.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
