New games are starting to heat up in 2022, from January to March being particularly busy with new releases. So, without further ado, make a wishlist and check out all of the upcoming Xbox Series X games, Switch games, new PC games, and PS5 games on the way.

Evil Dead: The Game
Platform(s): PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Switch, and PC Release date: May 13, 2022In this co-op and PvP shooter, you'll take on the role of Ash Williams and his friends.

It's a game inspired by all three Evil Dead films as well as the TV show Ash vs Evil Dead.

WB Games Montreal is hard at work on a brand new Batman game, but there's a catch: Batman has been murdered. The Gotham Knights are taking over the protection of what the studio calls the "most dynamic and interactive Gotham City yet," with each of the four Knights - Red Hood, Nightwing, Robin, and Batgirl - having unique abilities and skill trees. It's a drop-in, drop-out co-op game with open-world action-adventure gameplay. In Batman's absence, expect a slew of DC villains to try to seize control of Gotham, which means the Gotham Knights will have their hands full. However, with combat resembling that of Batman: Arkham Asylum, you'll have plenty of batsleeve tricks up your sleeve.
God of War: Ragnarok

Platform(s):PS5, PS4 Release date:TBC 2022
The latest trailer for God of War Ragnarok broke the internet, showing Kratos and a grown Atreus dealing with family strife as they battle Freya, Thor, and the impending Ragnarok. Eric Willaims has taken over directing duties from Cory Barlog, and the narrative will follow the father and son as they travel to new realms such as Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard, meeting new characters such as Angrboda and Odin. This is the final instalment of God of War's Norse saga and its shaping out to be an epic swan song to the loved franchise.
Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Platform(s):PS5, Xbox Series X Release date:TBC 2022
Prepare to become "precious" with Lord of the Rings: Gollum, a brand new game from Daedalic Entertainment in which you play as, well, Gollum. Starting in Barad-dûr, the Mordor fortress where Gollum is being held captive, the game promises "giant, persistent environments, each harbouring several questlines and a range of friendly or unfriendly faces" - at least according to the developer in an interview with Edge magazine. The game's aesthetic is inspired by Tolkien's own drawings, and it plays out like a stealth-action-adventure game that makes use of Gollum's dual personalities.

Platform(s):PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S Release date: TBC 2022
Seriously? We're getting both a Lord of the Rings and a Harry Potter game this year! While it is not a direct adaptation of the Harry Potter books, Hogwarts Legacy draws heavily from the lore. You'll be playing as a student at Hogwarts in the 1800s, hundreds of years before Harry and his friends were born, but you'll no doubt get up to plenty of wizardy mischief. Because it's an open world RPG, there'll be plenty to discover.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

Platform(s):PS5, Xbox Series X, PC, Stadia, Luna Release date: TBA, 2022
The long-awaited Avatar game, now officially titled Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, was finally revealed at E3 2021, and Massive Entertainment is working on it (in collaboration with Lightstorm Entertainment and Disney). The game will be a new standalone story in which you play as a Na'vi and travel across Pandora's Western Frontier, which has never been seen in any media before. This is a first-person action-adventure game with a living and reactive world that is battling the formidable RDA forces.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Platform(s):PS5, Xbox Series X, PC Release date:TBC 2022
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, due out in 2022, casts you as a member of our band of rowdy semi-heroes. Team up as Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot, or Captain Boomerang, with bots or other players playing the other four characters. Set in the Batman: Arkham universe, Rocksteady has already stated that this is a continuation of the previous games, so expect some existing threads and storylines to be brought to fruition. Personally, I am looking forward to this one.

Platform(s):PS5 Release date:TBC 2023
This is a significant one! More Spider-Man goodness is on the way from Insomniac, and this time Peter Parker and Mile Morales will team up to fight someone who sounds suspiciously like Kraven the Hunter from Spider-Man 2. In the trailer, we also saw Venom, who was teased in the previous game, but it's unclear whether he'll be a friend or a foe. The trailer showed off everything you'd expect from a new Spider-Man game, including acrobatic combat, webslinging, and spandex suits, but now it's just even more fun.

Platform(s):TBC Release date:TBC
Monolith, the developer behind Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and Gotham City Imposters, has announced the development of a Wonder Woman game. So far, we've only seen a brief teaser trailer during The Game Awards 2021, which shows off brief glimpses of the hero's iconic armour before we first see Wonder Woman appear on screen, and it's said that "she will fight to unite the warriors of two worlds."

Platform(s):PS5 Release date:TBC
So far, we don't know much about the new Marvel's Wolverine game other than it's being developed by Spider-Man studio Insomniac and will be a PS5 exclusive. We do know that it debuted with an absolutely awesome teaser trailer, which featured our favourite clawed grump mutant sitting at a bar in the aftermath of a brawl, trying to enjoy a whisky. He's rudely interrupted, and that's when those infamous talons appear. We don't even get to see his face in the brief clip, but we're excited even then.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

Platform(s):PS5, PC Release date:TBC
Thanks to Lucasfilm Games and Aspyr, the classic RPG is getting a full remake. If you missed it the first time, the game takes place over 4,000 years before the events of the Skywalker saga. It is a time of war between the Jedi and the Sith. Your mission is to aid in the defeat of Darth Malak and his Sith armada as they threaten the Galactic Republic, gathering companions and exploring planets such as Dantooine, Tatooine, and Kashyyyk along the way.

Platform(s):TBC Release date:TBCA new Indiana Jones game from MachineGames, Bethesda, and Lucasfilm Games has been announced with a small teaser trailer. According to the hints in the trailer, we're in for an Indi series set in 1937, with our whip-touting hero exploring the standing stones and stone circles of Italy. That date places it after Raiders of the Lost Ark and Temple of Doom, but before The Last Crusade, which is also intriguing. According to the hints, we may be looking at a storyline involving a lost race of giant cyclops as well.

Platform(s):PS5, Xbox Series X, PC Release date:TBC
Project 007 (working title) is a James Bond origin storey in the works at IO Interactive, and it's set to arrive on consoles and PC at some point in the future. The game will feature an entirely original James Bond tale, but not much is known about it yet. IO was chosen because they are "masters of crafting living, breathing worlds of immersive storytelling.

Platform(s):TBC Release date:TBC
During BlizzCon 2019, Blizzard revealed that its cast of heroes would be returning in a new sequel. Yes, Overwatch 2 is coming, and thanks to the addition of Story Missions, it will change up the game by focusing more on the storytelling and lore of the Overwatch universe. Players will be pitted against AI foes rather than other players in these missions. Hero Missions, which have been described as "deeply replayable," are also included in the sequel. Hero Missions, set in various locations around the world, will allow players to level up heroes and use various elements to modify abilities and power levels. It's already shaping up to be an exciting sequel, with new characters and tonnes of new content.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake

Platforms:PS4, Xbox One, PC Release date:TBC
Another one for OG Gamers! Ubisoft is bringing back one of the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube era's most memorable titles, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, with a fresh remake. It may seem surprising for a studio that has been around for so long, but this is Ubisoft's first full-fledged remake, as opposed to other titles that have simply been remastered for newer hardware. That being said, the remake of The Sands of Time is remarkably faithful to the original, albeit with updated graphics and gameplay.
