2022 feels like an excellent year for the gaming industry, with much-talked-about Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, SIFU, and even some great indie games like NORCO. Some highly anticipated games initially scheduled to be released in 2021 but postponed due to the epidemic will shortly be released in 2022. AAA and indie developers alike are making the most of current-generation consoles, as seen by their gorgeous and dramatic trailers for their respective titles.

I initially listed down 20 games, but then I decided to make the list shorter. So despite an extensive list of games, here is a list of 12 games that I'm really looking forward to playing in 2022.


Most Anticipated Games of 2022, Cuphead in the Delicious last course, Forspoken, Cult of the Lamb, Soulstice, Gotham Knights, Granblue Fantasy: Relink, Hogwarts Legacy, Sea of Stars, A Plague Tale: Requiem, STRAY, Final Fantasy XVI, God of War Ragnarök, NoobFeed
