45 Most Anticipated Games of 2022
Although the year 2021 has come to an end, if you’re a gamer, don’t start counting down the achievements you’ve earned this year just yet. Not until you’ve seen all of the games that will be released in 2022 on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and smartphones. There are a number of games to look forward to, with some promising excellent open-world action (Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Dying Light 2 Stay Human, and Forspoken), while others (Dead Space, and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time) will give us a fresh look at iconic classics.
Of course, many of us are still playing Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which were among our favorite games last year. However, the arrival of the new year heralds the arrival of even more thrilling sports. Rainbow Six Extraction, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Elden Ring, Stray, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Hogwarts Legacy, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, Gran Turismo 7, Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl, Forspoken, Redfall, Saints Row, Starfield, and God of War Ragnarök are among the games coming out this year.
It’s worth mentioning that many of the games on this list don’t have firm release dates yet, but are expected later this year. Due to the pandemic, games like God of War Ragnarök and Horizon Forbidden West have already been delayed, and some of the other titles on this list may be delayed as well, due to an increase in cases of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus in various nations. If you’re looking for a list of games to look forward to in 2022, here are the ones we’re most thrilled to play on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.
