The biggest video games coming out in 2022 and their release dates - from Elden Ring to God of War: Ragnarök

Here are the biggest video games set to be released in 2022 on Xbox, Playstation consoles, Nintendo Switch and PC – and when they are coming out

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic over the last two years has seen developer studios worldwide forced to delay the release of games which players have been hankering after for some time; with some of the biggest video game releases in recent years set to now fall in 2022.

Among the video games finally set to arrive in 2022 are Dying Light 2: Stay Human, God of War: Ragnarök, Grand Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West, with many more sequels, franchise instalments and new arrivals due to land over the next few months.

With 2022 already off to an exciting year for video games following the release of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction and the arrival of God of War on PC, keeping track of which games are coming out, on what consoles and when, can be quite the challenge.

While the release dates of some major video game launches are just days away from arriving on PC and consoles, with Pokémon Legends: Arceus coming out on Nintendo Switch later this week, others are still months away – and could be delayed even further as the risk of rushing games looms large after the anti-climactic launches of Cyberpunk 2077 in 2020 and Battlefield 2042 last autumn.

We whittled down the many games due to be released this year to find some of the biggest video games releases in 2022, ordered here by their release date or estimated launch date, and what to expect as we await their arrival.
