Highly-Anticipated Upcoming Games With No Release Date
Getting stuck inside can drive you a little stir-crazy, especially if you don’t have any means to stay entertained. Maybe it’s pouring rain outside, or maybe you’ve had one of the many types of bunion surgery performed and are stuck on the couch. Perhaps you’ve even working from home and need to separate your workspace from your relaxing space once the workday is over. Whatever the case might be, there’s one thing that can help you pass the time and get rid of any stress you have at the same time: gaming.
It’s a popular hobby for many, and with all the recent delays over the past year, 2022 is plump full of anticipated releases. That being said, there are still some upcoming games that have yet to be given a solid date—and a few not so upcoming. Here are some of the most anticipated ones!
It’s been a while since we’ve gotten a Harry Potter game, and even longer since we’ve got one that wasn’t movie-licensed. Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world RPG that puts us in the shoes—or should we say robes—of a Hogwarts student in the 1800s, which will most likely allow us to brew potions, cast spells, fight evil creatures, and maybe even play some quidditch! The game has seen delays, but rumors have surfaced that we can expect the game to drop sometime this September. Let’s hope it’s everything we Potterheads have been waiting for.
God of War: Ragnarok
As the winner of 2018’s Game of the Year Award, the God of War reboot was a massive success, both in terms of technicals and storytelling. It served as both a reboot and a continuation of Kratos’s story, giving him a son to accompany you on your adventure. Fans are ready for the sequel, which is slated to drop sometime this year—we wonder how Thor’s hammer will do against Kratos’s ax.
Insomniac’s Spider-Man dropped in 2018, and Spidey fans were ecstatic. Not since the Playstation 2 had we experienced the web-swinging action of our favorite wall-crawler on a scale like this. The gameplay was incredibly smooth, the graphics on par with some of the best in the industry, the voice acting incredible, and the story one that resonated with players. That’s why so many people are eagerly anticipating the definitive sequel sometime in 2023. While the spin-off game starring Miles Morales was fun, we’re ready for the two to come together next year—and for Venom to give us a run for our money.
Elder Scrolls VI
Will we ever get to play the sequel to 2011’s Skyrim? Yes. Will it be this year? No. Next year? Still no. What about the year after that? Maybe you should sit down for a second. The last installment in the franchise was released over a decade ago and has since gone down as a legendary title among the gaming community. It is also the reason the game has received a dedicated modding community and several different releases over the years to keep it alive and money in Bethesda’s pockets, even receiving an Alexa version where players must tell the device what it wants to do. With the studio’s new IP, Starfield, coming out this November, it’s safe to guess that we won’t be getting the next game for many years, though early work has been started. The only real question now is how many more versions of Skyrim we’ll get before it comes out.
Grand Theft Auto VI
Another sixth installment in a major franchise, GTA VI might just be the most anticipated video game that has yet to be given a solid release date, though it might be right alongside Elder Scrolls. The last mainstream title, GTA V, was released nearly a decade ago back in 2013 and has since become one of the most successful games of all time. While this is great, it has also undoubtedly played a part in the follow-up’s lengthy delay, as the online portion of the game has continued to generate endless gobs of cash for Rockstar. While the recent trilogy collection was met with much negative reception due to stripped content, downgraded visuals, and a slew of bugs, fans are expecting the next mainline game to deliver. The studio has recently announced that production is underway, so let’s hope the game sees the light of day in the next four years.
Charge Your Controllers Now
We’re ready to get our hands on these titles, even if we might have to wait a while for some of them. There are plenty of other games to look forward to as well, such as the recently announced Wolverine game from Insomniac, the Knights of the Old Republic remake, Fable 4, Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League, The Outer Worlds 2, and many more on the horizon. Regardless of the console you’re playing on or what type of games you’re into, it’s a good time to be a gamer.
