It is that time of the month again when we bring you a list of the biggest triple-A games for the month—and we are genuinely excited about what this month has in store. The first reason why we are excited is that two previous Playstation and Xbox exclusives will be coming to rival platforms.

5 Of The Biggest Must Play Triple-A Games Releasing March 2024

Horizon Forbidden West which was first released for PS4 and PS5 will be launched on PC. The version of the game launching on PC is the Complete Edition which will include the Burning Shores expansion and other bonus content. The PC port project was made possible through a collaboration between Guerrilla Games and Nixxes Software. It is scheduled for launch on March 21 and can be purchased through Steam for $60.

In a similar surprising move, Hi-Fi Rush which was an Xbox exclusive will be coming to PS5 on March 18. Hi-Fi Rush is one of the surprise hits of 2023. Although it was shadow-dropped by Tango Gameworks in January 2023, the rhythm-based action game stole the admiration of gamers. It was nominated for several awards and won The Game Awards in the Best Audio Design category.

Unfortunately, none of these games made our list. The reason is that our list of must-play triple-A games each month focuses on games that offer fresh experiences rather than remakes or games that are moving to a new platform.

5 Triple-A games you can’t afford to miss this March

March is packed with triple-A games and AA releases that bring back childhood memories. One game in particular that has lots of memories to it is Contra: Operation Galuga which is scheduled for March 12 release. The game is a reimagination of the 1980s run-‘n’-gun classics. Contra: Hard Corps was one game that I enjoyed playing growing up and was particularly thrilled by the alternate endings.

Regardless of your favorite gaming platform, there is a game on this list for you. However, PS5 and Nintendo Switch players are going to get exciting new IPs. That said, let’s cut the chitchats and dive into the heart of the matter.

Which game are you playing this March?

Some people argue that there are too many games which has contributed to the bad state of the video game industry. A large number of triple-A games are released every month making it hard for gamers to keep up. This has left gamers with lots of backlog in their collection.

Also, the large number of triple-A games released every month means that gamers have had to ration their rare resources. Consequently, some games don’t record as many sales as they would have if the number of releases was fewer.

The ripple effect of lower game sales is seen in the mass layoffs currently sweeping through the game industry. However, that may be just part of the problem as AI is also fingered as part of the problem. To avoid digressing too much, which of the triple-A games on this list will you be playing this month?
