New games 2022: Our release schedule for upcoming PC games

0

We’ve unlocked the new year and all the new games of 2022 that will come with it. The start of the year is already stacked with huge new PC games like Total War: Warhammer 3 and the long-awaited Elden Ring. But great games aren’t the only reason to be thrilled as a PC gamer in 2022. Earlier this year, we’ll also welcome the launch of Valve’s portable Steam Deck, our very own gaming console launch!

When you look at our list of the biggest games in 2022, you might feel a sense of deja vu. It’s true: some of the biggest games launching this year are the ones we expected to play last year. The downstream effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and major developers working from home for most of 2020 and 2021 mean that the past year has been absolutely stacked with delays to games big and small.

The coming year could go the same way, now that big game delays have become much more common. To help you keep track of what you’ll actually be playing this year, we’ll keep this list updated as release dates roll over to later times in the year or, inevitably, 2023.

Don’t despair, however. There is a parcel of games launching in 2022. Not all of them have dates yet, so our TBA section is full of fantastic games that have yet to set a specific release date for this year. Check back regularly to make sure you don’t miss some of the little gems of the year among all the heavy hitters.

Here’s your guide to all the new games of 2022 coming to PC.
