In 2023, the most important AAA video games will be released ...

When it comes to AAA releases, 2023 appears to be another stacked year, so weve compiled all of the major games you should look out for next year across PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC, and Stadia.

After a stellar year of major releases in 2022, you may expect things to slow down in the next 12 months. Elden Ring and Horizon: Forbidden West made a lot of noise, and weve still got God of War: Ragnarok and Modern Warfare 2 to look forward to.

Nonetheless, the lineup looks to be just as packed in 2023, with plenty of anticipated titles on the way.

Right here, we've broken down all of the most popular AAA games planned for the year 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, PC, and Stadia.

In 2023, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC, Steam, and Stadia video games will be released.

Forespoken: January 24, 2023

Forespoken, the first action RPG from Luminous Productions, which includes many FF VX developers, is a stunning-looking game that emphasizes fast and fluid traversal across a vast map.

Frey, a regular New York City woman, gets suddenly transported to the strange land of Athia. Why is she there, and why is her cuff talking to her? It takes until the end to find out.

Dead Island 2: February 3, 2023

Deep Silver finally demonstrated gameplay from the follow-up to Dead Island at Gamescom 2022, as well as announced its long-awaited release date.

Dead Island 2 will give players the run of a zombie-infested Los Angeles, with more deadly weapons to craft and heads to pop than ever before. A return to the series is long overdue.

Hogwarts Legacy: February 10, 2023

For years, Potterheads have wanted an open-world game set in the Wizarding World, and Hogwarts Legacy is able to fulfill that desire. Players will be able to choose their house, learn spells, and even collect fantastic beasts, all while unraveling the core of the story.

From the bustling Diagon Alley to the school of witchcraft and wizardry itself, there are plenty of historic sites to see. In 2023, there is no game more essential than the one you play.

Starfield: Early 2023

Starfield has had the same level of fanfare as Bethesdas. The Bethesdas sci-fi epic has been in development for at least six years and promises to take the studio's unique RPG style into the big screen, in a thrilling experience that director Todd Howard describes as Skyrim in space.

When the game passes to Bethesdas' most ambitious project to date, there will be around 1,000 planets and moons to explore, and many species to observe. It's sure to be one of 2023's most anticipated releases.

Final Fantasy 16: Summer 2023

Final Fantasy is one of the most popular gaming series in 35 years, with a long history. A new entry even this early on generates a lot of interest, so expect Final Fantasy 16 to be a significant deal when it arrives.

Square Enix is returning to the franchises roots this time, taking on a medical setting and abandoning the fully open-world approach of its predecessor. However, it will still retain the classic real-time combat that has become popular in recent years.

Diablo 4: 2023

It's hard to believe that the Diablo series hasn't had a mainline release since 2008, so its no surprise that Diablo 4 lovers are chomping at the bit for it to finally release. But Blizzard aren't resting on their laurels for our next descent into hell.

Dank the Paragon system, Diablo 4 will include over 150 dungeons to hack, slash, and loot through, as well as a revamped endgame. You may also personalize your warrior and become immersed in the dark, firmly world.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League: 2023

Rocksteady are focusing on removing the caped crusader from the Batman Arkham series' fifth installment, and instead on his rogues gallery. This time around, players step into the shoes of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark, and can switch between them at will.

The Suicide Squad has been assigned to hunt down the formally heroic Justice League, which is under the influence of Brainiac. It should provide a fresh perspective on the Arkham universe as well as the tough-hitting combat that the games are famous for.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor: 2023

Many consider Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to be one of the best Star Wars games ever created, so a sequel was almost inevitable. Jedi: Survivor continues Cal Kestis and the Mantis' crew as they fight for survival against the Empire.

Survivor will take Cal and his friends into far darker territory, interacting with some of the galaxy's most dangerous characters five years after they decided not to rebuild the Jedi order. There's no shortage of lore to draw from, and we can't wait to see familiar faces from George Lucas' space opera make an appearance.

2023: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Breath of the Wild 2 might be the most hyped game of 2023, thanks to the original being one of the most critically-acclaimed games of all time. Gamers fell in love with Nintendos reimaging of the classic franchise back in 2017, and they continue to make new discoveries today.

The sequel is still under wraps right now, with more physics-based puzzles to rummage around in and other stunning versions. It may have been pushed back from 2022, but BOTW 2 will still dominate the year.

These were the most anticipated AAA games planned to be released in 2023. We'll be updating this page throughout the year with all of the big announcements and delays.
