We’re halfway through the 2022 game year and excited to see upcoming pc games that the second half of the year has in store. At the start of the year, there were a few big new PC games, such as Total War: Warhammer 3 and the long-awaited, long-memed Elden Ring (opens in new tab). However, if you only look at the big releases, this year has felt a little slow for PC gaming. However, indie games have had a strong year, and we now have a great new way to play them with Valve’s handheld Steam Deck.
Upcoming PC Games In This Year (2022)
When you look at our list of the biggest games in 2022, you might feel a sense of déjà vu. It’s true: some of the biggest games launching this year were expected last year. Covid-19 and major developers working from home for most of 2020 and 2021 mean that last year was absolutely stacked with delays on games big and small.
This year could easily be a repeat. We’ll keep this list up to date as release dates shift later in the year or, inevitably, into 2023, to help you keep track of what you’ll be playing this year.
But don’t give up. There will be a slew of new 2022 games released in the second half of the year. Because not all of them have release dates yet, our TBA section is crammed with fantastic-looking games that haven’t been given a firm release date for this year. Keep checking back to ensure you don’t miss out on the year’s smaller gems in between all of the big hitters.
God of War | 14 January
Kratos and his son are finally coming to PC in a port of the popular action hack-and-slash. You’ll be able to battle the Norse realms in stunning 4K, thanks to the power of your PC. Check out our God of War review to see how he fares.
Dying Light 2 will be released on February 4th.
After numerous delays, the sequel to Techland’s zombie and parkour action game will finally be released in 2022. It brings a larger map, double the parkour, and the return of the dangerous nights where you’ll be sneaking along rooftops and through Infected nests. Check out our Dying Light 2 review to see if the parkour leaps ahead.
Warhammer 3 Total War | February 17
This is the final instalment of Creative Assembly’s trilogy, bringing the final armies from the tabletop wargame into digital form. The human nations of Kislev and Cathay will join the four daemonic factions at launch, with the Ogre Kingdoms available as DLC. In a nutshell, bears battle daemons, and you can see how the battle unfolds in our Total War: Warhammer 3 review.
Elden Ring | 25 February
FromSoftware is bringing back the Dark Souls formula, this time in an open world with lore written in part by George R.R. Martin. According to our Elden Ring review, it’s basically Dark Souls on steroids, which is exactly what many of us wanted.
Final Fantasy Origin | March 18
This is the next Final Fantasy game to be released before FFXVI. It’s actually a “new story inspired by” remake of the original Final Fantasy game from 1987. This one follows Jack and the Warriors of Light, combining the team combat of the Final Fantasy 7 remake with Team Ninja’s action-oriented Nioh series fighting, as we discussed in our Final Fantasy Origin review.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga | April 5
Another licenced LEGO game is making its way through the air. The Skywalker Saga is assembling a massive cast of Star Wars characters for the LEGO Force Awakens sequel. You’ll fly, fight, and platform your way through all nine major Star Wars plots.
Dune: Spice Wars | April 26
A science fiction real-time strategy game with 4X elements set in the world of Frank Herbert’s Dune novels. Dune: Spice Wars, developed by the creators of Northgard, pits you against other factions for control of the desert planet Arrakis.
Saints Row | August 23
Volition is reintroducing four new young and witty protagonists to its wacky action series. You and four friends, as the new Boss, establish a criminal empire in the American southwest-inspired Santo Ileso. The new Saints Row aims to be of its time, a modern story about feisty young people who leave the old Boss in the past.
Overwatch 2 | October 4 (Early Access)
Blizzard’s iconic hero shooter returns as an unconventional free-to-play sequel with a 5v5 format, new heroes, new maps, and the possibility of PvE.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns | October 7
Assemble a team from the Marvel universe to face a demonic apocalypse. In this tactical RPG from the creators of XCOM, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Wolverine, and others face occult forces.
Gotham Knights | 25th of October
In this deviation from the Arkhamverse timeline, four members of the Bat Family keep watch over Gotham in Batman’s absence. In solo or two-player co-op, you’ll take on the Court of Owls’ main villains as Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 | 28th of October
It’s Modern Warfare 2 all over again! All of your favourite tactical operators, including Soap, Captain Price, and that skull-faced guy, have returned to reimagine one of Call of Duty’s most beloved games for a new era.
Company of Heroes 3 | November 17
Relic’s latest entry in the World War II RTS series, set in Italy and North Africa, now includes a turn-based campaign. Other new features include a tactical pause system for single-player and dynamic cover, where destruction only changes the type and location of cover.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide | November 30
Fatshark is expanding its offerings with a new ‘-tide’ game set in the grim darkness of the Warhammer 40k universe. The co-op fps formula appears to be on fire, and with meaty melee combat returning—chainswords in hand—with a new cast of four, this could be the game to get your group into in 2022.
System Shock | 2022
Shodan returns in a neon-drenched remake of the classic first-person shooter. You’ll awaken from a coma aboard the orbital research station to face the hordes of mutants and cyborgs created by the killer station-AI. System Shock’s cyberpunk pedigree is unparalleled, and we’re hoping this delivers.
Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 | 2022?
The sequel to this World of Darkness-themed RPG has been repeatedly delayed and has been handed off to an unknown new developer. We don’t even know if it’ll be released in 2022, but we’re hoping for some excellent vampire sandbox action set in Seattle.
