Release Dates for the Video Game in 2022

Release Dates for the Video Game in 2022 ...

After a whole calendar year to marinate in the gaming industry, 2022 is poised to put it to the test coming out swinging with Elden Ring in February and keeping a steady pace with virtually every month following, but it''s going to be a big year in gaming. Here''s how you can help out by putting an all-encompassing cliche.

If you''re looking to schedule your vacation for your most-anticipated releases or simply want to keep up with delays, announcements, or cancellations, then you''re in for the right place. TheGamer is keeping an eye on the latest developments year-round, so make sure to check back frequently to see them.

May kicks off with a massive new edition of hard-as-nails kung-fu brawler Sifu, while the second year, including Evil Dead and Vampire: The Masquerade Swansong, will be released by May. We''ll have a blessed day, so check back soon. May ends with a broad range of titles, from Sniper Elite 5 to Pac-Man Museum+, and there''s a surprise or two on the way!

  • Nintendo''''s Indie World showcase revealed tons of new games coming to the Switch this year! We have a round-up of everything shown in the presentation right here, but we''''ve updated this calendar as well to keep our release dates, well, up-to-date.
  • Alas, both Starfield and Redfall have been delayed, with Bethesda projecting a 2023 release date at this point.
  • But where the Starfield/Redfall doors have closed, the Dead Space window has opened! EA Motive finally announced the release date for their highly anticipated remake during a very impressive developer livestream. Fans can expect to creep the halls of the USG Ishimura on January 27, 2023.
  • If you''''re looking for "a game with the combat of a Soulslike, the gameplay loop of a Monster Hunter, and the exploration of a Metroidvania," then look no further than Salt and Sacrifice, which was tastefully reviewed by our own Ryan Bamsey.

October 2022 Games

Currently, we have only a few known people slated for October, including Forspoken and Gotham Knights. That said, they are heavy players that demand attention.

November 2022 Games

In terms of game launches, November is likely to be somewhat bare. The one confirmed release date for this month was originally Starfield, but Bethesda delayed its launch until next year. We''re eager to keep our breaths on whatever games do get released in November. Let''s hope our faces won''t turn blue for months on end.

December 2022 Games

At this point, December 2022 feels like ages away, so it''s no surprise that this month is limited to the specific release date for Homeworld 3, and Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl certainly has more than a few eyes on it.

December TBA Homeworld 3 PC
December 6 Hello Neighbor 2 PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC
December 8 Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl Xbox Series X|S, PC
