4. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Square Enix
Release date: TBA 2015
The third and final game in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. As the title suggests, Lightning's back, and this time it's against the clock—given thirteen in-game days to prevent the end of the world. In addition to the time pressures now placed on the player, LR:FFXIII features a new battle system that combines the Final Fantasy XIII paradigm-shift system with Final Fantasy X-2 style costume changes. We will have to wait and watch how it performs on PC platform after its stint on consoles last year.

3. Cyberpunk 2077
Developer: CD Projekt RED
Release date: TBA
This game which was announced by CD Projekt Red way back in 2012 continues to be in development and since then very few details have emerged about it. It is probably in its finishing stage but it is likely that it will be released this year. Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a dystopian futuristic world in which ultra-modern technology co-exists with a degenerated human society. The idea of a cyberpunk RPG rendered with the sumptuous detail of The Witcher games is exciting. We’re willing to wait for it.

2. Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Developer: Warhorse Studios
Publisher: Warhorse Studios
Release date: 2015
This crowd funded RPG game is surprisingly one of the most anticipated game this year. This medieval game set in the 15th century focuses on historically accurate and realistic content. The game will be a single-player experience with branching quest lines and a highly interactive world encouraging emergent gameplay. Kingdom Come will feature period-accurate armor and clothing, combat techniques, and real-world castles recreated with the assistance of architects and historians. The game will also contain period music recorded by Czech masters that were taken note for note from medieval song books. It will be interesting for once seeing a game set in medieval times not having dragons, magic, dwarves, elf's and all other fairy creatures. Strictly no dragons. Instead, you'll get sleep at regular intervals, eat hearty meals, complete open-ended objectives and earn reputation among NPCs.

1. The Witcher 3
Developer: CD Projekt RED
Publisher: CD Projekt RED
Release date: May 19
This game is by far the most awaited RPG game this year. Although it has suffered some delays there is no denying the fact that it is going to be epic in scale with awesome game play and jaw dropping graphics. CD Projekt RED estimate that the Witcher 3 is 35 times bigger than The Witcher 2, with a vast and stunning open world populated by strange creatures borrowed from European folklore. So what are you waiting for? Start saving because this game will require a BEAST of a gaming rig to run it smoothly. We sure don't mind the delays as we don't want it to be filled with bug's. Let CD Projekt RED take as much time as they want.

At the end of the day it all comes down to gameplay, graphics and story line and it seems that these games are at the forefront of all the other games in their genre. Although there are many more awesome games to be released this year these games are the cream of this genre.
Below are some honorable mentions:
Pillars of Eternity
Torment: Tides of Numenera
Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord
and many more........
