TR Definitive was supposed to release on Tuesday, but Square Enix removed the street date on it late Thursday night.  Technically, it wasn't a new release, though, just a couple of new platforms.

 

Other than the occassional 'special' release, games are released on Tuesdays.

The LEGO Movie Game is releasing on a Friday for multiple platforms, but I'm thinking this is a special case just because the movie comes out on a Friday. The Last of Us was released on a Friday in 2013. It looks like Nintendo switched their usual Sunday slot over to Fridays. Nintendo doesn't obey the standard release laws as for when their games come out. For the most part though, it looks as if Tuesday remains the standard release day for most video games.

Most people work Monday through Friday. This way they have the weekend to play. Or sometimes games are stacked around a Tuesday, and they don't want to go head to head with a release.

Friday is the day I can cash my check so it works

"While we're being honest, might I suggest something.

Please put your trophy profile as private, otherwise I might have believed you own a PS4 (thanks for the fake pic though)."

Movies release on Tuesdays.

 

Games release on Fridays so as to not interrupt movie sales of new releases.
