Video game release dates 2022 - PlayStation, PC, Xbox, Switch - VG247

It is finally time! 2022 is the year where most of the bigger, highly-anticipated games from last year ended up. It’s the year of Elden Ring, Starfield, Dying Light 2, Windjammers 2, Horizon: Forbidden West, Warhammer 3, Stalker 2 and many, many more.

At least, that’s what it looks like right now, as some of those games could very well be pushed back yet again.

But let’s stay positive and take a look at what is unquestionably going to be a banner year in video game history. As always, this list keeps track of as many video game release dates as we can find. We’re bound to miss a few, but the majority will be here.

Release dates change all the time, and some developers go dark months at a time, but we update this list daily and try to say on top of it - so things will shift around and get added/removed very often. Keep it bookmarked, and check back often to see when a game you’ve been waiting for is going to be released. If you missed it, here are all video games released in 2021.

Like with every year’s list, it will eventually break into segments for the different months as the year takes shape. For now, here’s how we’ve arranged them.

January 2022 video game release dates

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.

February 2022 video game release dates

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.

March 2022 video game 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.

April 2022 video game release dates

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.

May 2022 video game release dates

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.

TBC 2022 video game release dates

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.

TBC 2023 video game release dates

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:

TBC video game release dates

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.
