It is finally time! 2022is 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.

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.
  • Stalker 2 (PC, Xbox Series X/S) - April 28
  • Exophobia (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch) - April

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.
