    Unsurprisingly, the video game industry is continuing to grow at breakneck speeds and shows no sign of slowing down. Last year, it was expected that a total of 2.3 billion gamers worldwide would reach into their pockets and spend approximately $137 billion on games.

So, whether you’ll be teaming up with your airsoft pals or competing for bragging rights, here are some of our top shooter games due for release this year.
