The first six months of 2022 are booked a lot of cool things about video games. We have had big hits like Horizon Forbidden West or Gran Turismo 7, surprises like The Quarry or TNMT Shredder’s Revenge, without forgetting Elden Ring that has left its mark on the media.

We are now in the second half of 2022 and many other titles await us. The period from the beginning of the school year to December is particularly prosperous for video games. In this file, we’ve selected ten titles to watch scheduled for this year. The goal is to highlight the games that will inevitably be talked about when they are released, the ones that will shape our end of the year.

Note that there is no particular classification for this list. The former is not necessarily the most anticipated, nor the one that will come out first. This is just a selection of the best titles to keep an eye on. We focused on “general public” games, even if independent titles will necessarily be worth a detour. You yourselves, in the comments, do not hesitate to give us your expectations.

So, what will we play in the next six months?

Ragnarok, god of war

Platforms: PS4, PS5

This item will be released on November 9, 2022

Genre: action / adventure

God of War 2018 was a real slap in the face for the industry and Santa Monica Studio will do it again with a sequel. Called Ragnarok, it will resume the gameplay of the previous title. We will always embody Kratos, the ancient Greek god of war struggling with the Norse pantheon. It certainly is of one of the most anticipated titles of this year. Lad!

Legacy of Hogwarts

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Nintendo Switch

Release date: late 2022

Genre: action / adventure

A game for Harry Potter fans. Hogwarts Legacy will put you in the shoes of a Hogwarts student. You will have to take lessons, choose a home, make friends but also counter a threat looming over the school. The story will take place in the 19th century and will introduce us to yet unknown facets of the universe created by JK Rowling. The icing on the cake: it will be an open world, so it will be possible to explore every corner of the school of wizards.

The last of us part 1

Platform: PS5

This item will be released on September 2, 2022

Genre: action / adventure

The Last of Us is a game that has marked an entire generation of players. Naughty Dog has decided to update it with a remake called Part I. Here is the graphic part that has been revised. The story will remain the same, the same for the progression and gameplay. Enough to introduce this cult title to a new audience.

Skull and bones

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X / S, Stadia

This item will be released on November 8, 2022

Genre: adventure, battleship

This has been long overdue. Developed over many years, Skull and Bones will finally arrive on our consoles and PCs! In this game we embody a pirate ready to do anything to make a fortune. He sails the seas, attacks other players, and unearths treasures to upgrade your rampaging ship. A title whose main inspiration is Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, released in 2013.

the World of Warcraft Dragonflight

Platform: PC

Release date: late 2022

Genre: MMORPG

World of Warcraft has been going through a tough time in recent years. After two unconvincing expansions and players who keep jumping ship, Blizzard is playing big with the next Dragonflight expansion. The formula will remain the same: new continent, new race, new class, overhaul of the talent system … the studio takes no risks, but tries to offer a solid and attractive experience for both old players and newcomers. An extension that will rhyme with redemption?

Saints Row

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S

This item will be released on August 23, 2022

Genre: similar to GTA

The Saints Row saga will return with a reboot! This time we will be invited to put the boxon in the city of Santo Ileso. The formula seems to have changed very little and we appreciate that. The title has all the cards in hand to be an excellent stress reliever. A little summer surprise?

Gotham Knights

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X / S

This item will be released on October 25, 2022

Genre: Beat them all

Spiritual sequel to the Arkham games, Gotham Knights features four members of the bat family. At the controls of Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl or Red Hood (each of which will have their own gameplay), it will be up to the players to patrol the streets of Gotham City and put the criminals behind bars. If the Arkham formula seems to be taken literally, Gotham Knights brings one great subtlety: the ability to play with more people! Ready to fight bad guys with your friends?

Overwatch 2

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch

This item will be released on October 4, 2022

Genre: multiplayer shooter

It was time for it to arrive! Overwatch 2 will be released on October 4th and will do more than follow the formula of its predecessor: will replace it completely. It will be a free-to-play that will be funded by microtransactions (only for cosmetics, Blizzard promises). As before, you’ll have to choose a hero with his abilities and throw yourself headlong into battle against other players. What to relaunch a dormant license for too long?

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S

This item will be released on October 28, 2022

Genre: Military First Person Shooter

Call of Duty Modern Warfare had cleverly revisited the license in 2019. This year we have the sequel, soberly titled Modern Warfare 2. This is the sequel to Modern Warfare 2019, which is not Modern Warfare 2007, and even this is not a remake of Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 and … anyway, it’s complicated. In any case we will have a Military FPS that won’t think outside the box but that will try to offer a controlled experience.

Callisto’s protocol

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S

This item will be released on December 2, 2022

Genre: horror

The creators of Dead Space will return to the fore with The Callisto Protocol. This time, the player will play an inmate who must survive in a space prison overrun by horrific aliens. If it really is a new license, The Callisto Protocol takes up the strings of Dead Space : vulnerable player, dark corridors, terrifying monsters and scary jumps galore. You will need to have a strong heart.
