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

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

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

So, what are we going to play in the next six months?

God of War Ragnarok

Platforms: PS4, PS5

Release date: November 9, 2022

Genre: action/adventure

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

Hogwarts Legacy

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

Release date: end of 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 house, make friends but also counter a threat hanging over the school. The story will take place in the 19th century and will introduce us to still 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

Release date: September 2, 2022

Genre: action/adventure

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

Skull and Bones

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

Release date: November 8, 2022

Genre: adventure, battleship

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

world of warcraft dragonflight

Platform: PC

Release date: end of 2022

Genre: MMORPG

World of Warcraft has been going through a tough time for the past few 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 does not take risks, but seeks 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

Release date: August 23, 2022

Genre: GTA-like

The Saints Row saga will be making a comeback 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 it. The title has all the cards in hand to be an excellent stress relief. A little summer surprise?

Gotham Knights

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S

Release date: October 25, 2022

Genre: Beat them all

Spiritual sequel to the games Arkham, 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 criminals behind bars. If the Arkham formula seems to be taken literally, Gotham Knights brings a major subtlety: the possibility of playing with several people! Ready to battle the bad guys with your friends?

Overwatch 2

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch

Release date: October 4, 2022

Genre: multiplayer shooter

It was about time he arrived! Overwatch 2 will be released on October 4 and will do more than follow the formula of its predecessor: it will completely replace it. It will be a free-to-play which will be financed by micro-transactions (for cosmetics only, promises Blizzard). As before, you will have to choose a hero with his own 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

Release date: October 28, 2022

Genre: Military FPS

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 this is also 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 which will seek to offer a controlled experience.

The Callisto Protocol

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

Release date: December 2, 2022

Genre: horror

The creators of Dead Space will return to the front of the stage with The Callisto Protocol. This time, the player will play as an inmate who must survive in a space prison overrun by horrible aliens. If it is indeed a new license, The Callisto Protocol takes up the strings of Dead Space : vulnerable player, dark corridors, terrifying monsters and jump-scare galore. You will have to have a strong heart.
