January is starting things a little slow this year, but not quite as uneventful as in past years. Right off the bat, we have several new releases we’ll be spending a lot of time with. Monster Hunter Rise, and God of War come to PC, Rainbow Six Extraction finally escapes development hell, Weird West will invite us into its immersive sim world – and, the day some said would never come: Windjammers 2 will be in our hands this month.
It’s finally time! 2022 will be the year when most of the bigger, long-awaited games from last year have ended. Years such as Elden Ring, Starfield, Dying Light 2, Windjammers 2, Horizon: Forbidden West, Warhammer 3, Stalker 2.
It looks like this, at least for now, as some of these games could definitely be postponed again.
But stay positive and see that it will definitely be a great year in the history of video games. As always, this list contains as many video game release dates as we can find. We certainly miss some, but most of them are here. The
release date is constantly changing and some developers will be dark for months, but I update this list daily, trying to add, keeping things running, and adding / removing frequently. Bookmark it and check it often to see when the game you’ve been waiting for will be released. For those who missed it, here are all the video games released in 2021.
Similar to the annual list, it is divided into different month segments throughout the year. At the moment, we are arranging it that way.
February has practically positioned itself as another October. The number of highly-anticipated, long-in-development games coming out this month in 2022 is staggering. Elden Ring is the big one, of course, but let’s not forget about Horizon: Forbidden West, Dying Light 2, Warhammer 3, Grid Legends, and the Destiny 2 Witch Queen expansion. February also sees the release of high-profile indies Sifu, and OlliOlli World. Oh, and the Steam Deck is out in February, too.
So far, we only have just a handful of confirmed games for April. But this is also the release month of Stalker 2, so that’s probably all we need. Over time, this list is going to expand as more games confirm April release dates.
March is actually quieter by comparison to February this year. Don’t expect as many heavy-hitters, but there’s still plenty to look forward to. Highlights include Gran Turismo 7, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, Elex 2, PlatinumGames’ Babylon’s Fall, The Team Ninja-developed Final Fantasy game, and Tunic’s actual release after what seems like a decade.
May is also a little sparse right now, but more and more games will join this list as time goes on. For now, Forspoken, and the oft-delayed Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong are the two confirmed games for the month.
For the moment, this is going to be the largest part of this giant list. Below, you’ll find some of the other common release targets for games, such as the various quarters, and seasons. Everything tentatively targeting 2022 will also exist here, until those games eventually get moved to the different individual months.
Believe it or not, some games are already shooting for release in 2023. That’s when many of the games revealed this year will be released, too. Because of that, the 2023 section will continue to grow until we move it into its own list towards the end of this year. For now, here’s what we have:
This is the wild west. Below, you’ll find all the games we know exist, but just don’t have a rough idea of when we might be playing them. This doesn’t necessarily mean they’re all big projects announced years ago, this section will often also include games seemingly out in the near future, just without any release targets.
