2022 is still a massive year for video games. Between franchises like God of War, Pokemon, and Harry Potter, PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, PC, and Stadia have some gargantuan titles to house. Here’s a look at the biggest games and possible release dates.

The beginning of 2022 marked more than a year since PS5 and Xbox Series X brought video games to the ninth generation of consoles. Developers have had plenty of time to chew through the fat and harness the power of consoles to create massive AAA experiences.

There’s also plenty of mileage left for the Nintendo Switch, and of course PC, Stadia, and Steam are always pushing the limits.

With 2022 already offering Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Ring, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Rainbow Six Extraction, and Gran Turismo 7, the rest of the year looks to bring the heat as well. Here’s a look at the best AAA video games coming in 2022.

PS5, Xbox, Switch, PC, Steam and Stadia video games in 2022

For the first time in nearly 20 years, the Call of Duty franchise will break its annual release schedule in 2023. This means players will be stuck with the 2022 CoD title, Modern Warfare 2, for two years.

The 2022 iteration of the iconic franchise will be a direct sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. The game will be based on an entirely new engine, and the game’s development is being led by Infinity Ward. The Call of Duty team announced that Modern Warfare 2 will launch on October 28, 2022.

Gotham Knights Release Date: October 25, 2022

A Gotham City without the caped crusader is an odd thought, but that’s the threat it faces when Bruce Wayne is dead. In Batman’s stead, his former protégés must step up and protect Gotham City, fending off any threat of crime perpetrated by some of its most evil supervillains.

With co-op, players can take control of these brave heroes and hopefully make Batman proud when the game launches. October 25, 2022.

Hogwarts Legacy Release Date: Holiday 2022

There have been many games related to the Harry Potter movies, but there has yet to be a true RPG experience that allows you to become your own wizard, until now.

Hogwarts Legacy will allow fans around the world to finally live out their dream of attending Hogwarts, and the game allows players to select their House, the classes they take, and customize their character, as they battle monsters and complete quests.

God of War: Ragnarok Release Date: 2022

Players got a juicy sneak peek at the next epic adventure from Santa Monica’s God of War franchise during PlayStation Experience 2021. Kratos and Atreus are ready to do battle with Freya, possibly Thor, and their own demons.

It seems that God of War Ragnarok has expanded with the reboot to incorporate more NPCs, more spectacular gameplay, and a gripping narrative that will test the bond between father and son.

Final Fantasy XVI Release Date: Late 2022

It would not be an exaggeration to say that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 could easily be one of the most anticipated games of all time.

Breath of the Wild took the world by storm in 2017 with its rich and expressive world that deviated from the conventions of traditional Zelda games. Many millions of copies have since been sold, and fans around the world are desperate for Link’s next chapter in this beautiful, sprawling version of Hyrule.

Unfortunately, on March 29, 2022, Nintendo announced that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 would be pushed back to a 2023 release date.
