The most anticipated new games for the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, PC, and other platforms in the next few years.
Opening Night Live at Gamescom unveiled a ton of new games for 2022 and beyond. This means that the list has grown significantly longer, some releases have been moved around, some have been brought ahead, and tragically, some video game delays have caused several titles to be delayed into 2023 or later.
This round of new games for 2022 and beyond collects the most anticipated titles in order of release to assist you in creating your wishlist, whether you play on Xbox, Playstation, PC, Nintendo Switch, or older-generation consoles.
Here is a list of some of the upcoming video games that we are most looking forward to. Please be aware that there are many more games available than those we have included.
The Last Of Us Part 1 (remastered)
September 2nd, 2022
The Last of Us Part 1 Remastered is planned to be a "definitive version" of the first game, as Neil Druckmann said during Summer Game Fest earlier this year. With new visuals and better fidelity face animations, more accessibility choices, and improved controls, Naughty Dog claims the PS5 and PC version completely overhauls the original experience. In comparisons shown in the teaser, you can see the differences between the character models' appearances
September 9th, 2022
Splatoon 3 will launch exclusively on the Nintendo Switch later this year, so it's time to get ink-happy once more. The excellent Salmon Rush co-op mode, a new story, as well as new and old weapons, will be included, among other things. One of the most anticipated Switch releases of the year, it is already taking shape.
Return To Monkey Island
Nintendo Switch and PC
September 19th, 2022
Terrible Toybox, Devolver Digital, and Lucasfilm Games' Return to Monkey Island is slated to resurrect the legendary series by Ron Gilbert. A new swashbuckling adventure will begin, and it will once more be a point-and-click experience like the games that came before it, but this time it will include updated controls and accessibility features for current audiences. Guybrush Threepwood's return is anticipated to be a pirate-filled adventure with the discovery of a fresh, exclusive secret.
A Plague Tale: Requiem
PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, Nintendo Switch
October 18th, 2022
The unexpected follow-up to the original A Plague Tale: Innocence, which was published in 2019, is titled A Plague Tale: Requiem. You'll be following the same two characters, Amicia and her younger brother Hugo, as they struggle to survive in the harsh game environment. Even though there will still be a lot of rats in this area, there are other issues to be concerned about as well.
New Tales From The Borderlands
Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC
October 21st, 2022
A new story-driven experience called New Tales from the Borderlands will continue the tradition started by Telltale's Tales from the Borderlands. This time, Gearbox is creating the adventure, and it will feature three new characters that were presented in a Gamescom Opening Night Live teaser. Anu, Octovio, and Fran, the game's three playable heroes, are about to embark on an action-packed journey that will be defined by the decisions you make, filled with plenty of guns and mayhem.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Remake)
PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC
October 28th, 2022
Task Force 141 from the 2019 reboot of the franchise will make a return in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which is currently in production by developer Infinity Ward. Narratively, it will be a continuation of that tale, which ended with Captain Price meeting with CIA handler Kate Laswell and General Shepherd to talk about Victor Zakhaev. Other than that, there isn't much information at the moment, but we do have a release date.
PC and Nintendo Switch
November 4th, 2022
Square Enix revealed a new life simulation role-playing game containing farming, fishing, dungeons, and other features during the Nintendo Direct Mini in June. In Harvestella, you are free to live your life as you like, interacting with the populace, discovering Lethe's setting, and taking care of your crops. You will, however, need to get ready for a perilous season known as Quietus as time goes on and the seasons shift. Plants are rumored to wither around this season, and people are forbidden from going outside because a poisonous dust will start to appear.
God Of War: Ragnarok
PS4 and PS5
November 9th, 2022
The newest trailer for God of War: Ragnarok, which depicts Kratos and a larger-than-life Atreus battling Freya, Thor, and the approaching Ragnarok, went viral. With Eric Willaims replacing Cory Barlog as director, the tale will see a father and son visit new places including Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard and interact with fresh characters like Angrboda and Odin. The Norse saga of God of War will end with this chapter.
The Callisto Protocol
Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC
December 2nd, 2022
The Callisto Protocol should be on the internal motion sensor of any survival horror fans. The new next-generation survival horror game, developed by Striking Distance, takes set within a maximum security jail on Jupiter's moon and promises to provide lots of gory alien nightmare fuel. The Callisto Protocol, which was created by Glen Schofield, the person who is responsible for Dead Space, also theoretically takes place in the PUBG universe.
Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core Reunion
PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Nintendo Switch
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 has been locked away in the PSP library vault, but Square Enix is now bringing it to other platforms. A stunning remaster of the 2007 prequel to Final Fantasy 7 called Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core Reunion was released. It has updated combat to match the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, new 3D models, HD graphics, and much more. We are eager to play it later this year because it looks fantastic.
These are only a few of the many games that will be released in the near future.
