Are you looking for the 2022 video game release schedule? There appear to be brand-new games coming out in the upcoming months (and beyond). So that you can plan out your gaming year, we’re here to let you know when you can get your hands on them and look at the Top Upcoming games and what to expect.
As developers continue to maximize the power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, 2022 appears to be another year for video games. We’re particularly interested in Forspoken and Starfield, two console-exclusive games that will demonstrate the full potential of the newest hardware. Although Summer Game Fest 2022 featured a few more announcements and release dates, we anticipate more in the following weeks.
But not all of the pleasure is being had by PlayStation and Xbox users. With Splatoon 3 and Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope scheduled for 2022, the Nintendo Switch gets expected to have another successful year. Meanwhile, PC users might anticipate Company of Heroes 3 and Baldur’s Gate 3. There will be plenty to keep you occupied because many of these are coming to several platforms, including PS4 and Xbox One.
So prepare your calendars and wish lists as we go through all the Top Upcoming games and what to expect for 2022 and beyond. Read our list of the games to watch out for in the second half year.
Platforms: PC, PS5, and PS4
Several people like to be a cat, and in this third feline adventure game, you have the chance to do just that. In Stray, set in a sleazy cybercity, you take on the role of a cat that gets attempting to survive and eventually flee from the terrible streets it calls home. You will be sneaking about a lot, both below and above ground, and making friends with some eccentric, probably cat-friendly, city dwellers.
Stray appears to be one of the sleeper hits of 2022 based on what we’ve seen in the trailers so far. You belong to the new PS Plus Extra or Premium levels and may download Stray for free.
The conclusion of Nintendo’s February Direct broadcast was the announcement of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, released in September for the Switch. The long-rumored next installment in the critically renowned RPG series has finally been confirmed.
If you wish to catch up before the game’s release, start playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, which is set in the dangerous realm of Aionios and connects Xenoblade Chronicles and its sequel. Fortunately, both titles are accessible on Switch, making them incredibly simple to find.
3. Two Campus Point
We establish and administer a university campus in this new management sim from the creators of the wonderfully bizarre Two Point Hospital. The students at Two Point Campus are pursuing wacky qualifications, attending knight school or culinary programs, much like the patients at Two Point Hospital suffering from different fanciful illnesses. As they compete on the sports field and prepare massive pizzas, it gets your responsibility to keep your kids and employees happy.
PC, PS5, and other platforms
OlliOlli World, one of our favorite games this year, was just launched by a British developer, but it won’t be long until it releases another title. When we first saw Rollerdrome in action, it immediately rose to the top of our most-wanted list.
The game is a bloody third-person arena shooter in which you engage in combat with opponents while skating about and pulling off stunts while shooting them in the face. You may approximate this by imagining Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater crossed with Unreal Tournament. Although we haven’t played the game yet, if it plays as well in the hands as OlliOlli World, we’re in for a treat.
Platforms: Xbox, PS5, PS4, and PC
Saints Row has the chance to stand out in the second half because Sony and Microsoft’s AAA first-party releases are scarce. Although the infamously absurd open-world GTA-like hasn’t always been to everyone’s taste, the series is getting a type of rebirth and relying on character customization, enabling you to design the “Boss” of your dreams that you may succeed in a city plagued by crime.
Saints Row may be the chaotic sandbox you’re seeking because there isn’t a fresh GTA.
It may be a wise move on – the part of Naughty Dog to rebuild the game that served as its inspiration at this time, with Joel and Ellie’s live-action premiere just around the corner. The Last of Us Part I, which should not be confused with 2014’s The Last of Us Remastered, is a complete remake of the post-apocalyptic action-adventure game that many consider to be one of the all time, and thus it will look and play more like the sequel from a few years ago.
Even if it costs £70, there should be more than enough here to warrant a second playthrough if you’ve previously completed The Last of Us. If you haven’t, this will likely take the only way to experience Naughty Dog’s masterpiece.
We weren’t sure what to make of Mario’s 2017 announcement that he would be teaming up with Ubisoft’s bizarre Rayman spin-off series, Rabbids, for a turn-based strategy game. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was shockingly excellent. The planned sequel appears to expand on the strong foundations of the original game for an even sillier adventure, this time in space. The battle system in Sparks of Hope blends turn-based strategy with unrestricted mobility to create a strategy game unlike any other in terms of appearance and gameplay. Additionally, you may put Mario and Bowser on the same team.
The Nintendo Switch platform
With Splatoon 3, which will be released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch later this year, it’s time to go ink-happy. It will have a new narrative, including old and new weaponry, the fantastic Salmon Rush co-op mode, and much more. One of the most thrilling Switch releases this year is what it appears to be.
