Video Game Data Report #2: February 2021

Video Game Data Report #2:  February 2021

Did you know? Three of our whatoplay staff celebrated their birthdays this month. This month is worth celebrating as we present you the DATA of our accumulated efforts for this 'Love Month' of February.  

Below we summarize the list of newly released and upcoming games added to the database in February.

New Game Releases

This month, we tracked a total of 614 games on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch,  Android, iOS, and Google Stadia.

The Nintendo Switch beat PC on the number of games released. This has been a trend since last month. The latest-gen consoles however have almost identical data, with Series X|S beating PS5 only by 1.

We can also say that's also the case for both Android and iOS games as they also registered similar data with their number of games released. It's interesting to see that 3DS and PS Vita still have new games released this month.

Games Added to the whatoplay Database

This February, we added 1441  new and upcoming games across different platforms.

In February, we added more video games to our database than the previous month. This is as expected as, historically, February marks the beginning of new cycles of announcements and releases.

To sum it up, our growing database has a total of 85,086 games (released and upcoming), and 188,521 critic reviews.

We at whatoplay's data Team will do our best to reach our ultimate goal of providing the best hub for all gamers.
