In my opinion, 2009 did not start that well for PC gamers. Out of all PC releases in 2009, I think only Mirror’s Edge lived up to its expectations. Anyway there are several much hyped PC titles that are due to be released in February 2009. This posts includes summarized details (release date, protection/DRM info, trailers, previews, etc) about upcoming PC games in February that I think would be popular among PC gamers.

Note that this article does not include all PC releases for this month. If you have any new names to be added to this list, please share them in the comments section of this article.
