Which games are you picking up later this year? Come tell us your top picks.

While we're currently experiencing the infamous "summer drought" of video games, a wave of titles awaits for the latter months of the year. As usual, publishers attempt to cram their biggest games in the months leading up to the holidays, resulting in an overwhelming surge of back-to-back releases.

Looking forward, Xbox One owners have a huge range of titles coming their way. In the months ahead, Microsoft is set to debut both Crackdown 3 and Forza Motorsport 7 – two games which take full advantage of its upcoming flagship Xbox One X. New blockbuster sequels from big franchises are also releasing this year, including Destiny 2, Battlefront 2 and Call of Duty: WW2. Even on the indie front, some interesting gems are in the pipeline, such as StudioMDHR's Cuphead and the renowned arena shooter, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Over on our forums, avid gamers have been discussing their favorite releases still to come in 2017 for Xbox One. Some readers are even excited to share their favorites coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Even with games like Scalebound cancelled, there's an insane amount of games on the horizon. What are you looking forward to the most? Of the ones that are confirmed, I'm hopeful that Prey, Mass Effect Andromeda, State of Decay, and Sea of Thieves deliver the goods.
