The new games of 2022: all the upcoming PC games we’re looking forward to

We’ve nearly unlocked a new year, and all the new games of 2022 that will come with it. The beginning of the year is already stacked with huge new PC games like Total War: Warhammer 3 and the long-awaited, long-memed Elden Ring. But big games aren’t the only reason to be thrilled as a PC gamer in 2022. Early in the year we’ll also welcome the launch of Valve’s handheld Steam Deck, our very own gaming console launch!

When you look at our list of the biggest games in 2022, you might feel a sense of déjà vu. It’s true: some of the biggest games launching this year are ones we were expecting to play last year. The downstream effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and major developers working from home for most of 2020 and 2021 mean that last year was absolutely stacked with delays on games big and small.

This coming year may shake out in a similar fashion, now that big game delays have become so much more commonplace. To help you keep track of what you’ll actually be playing this year, we’ll keep this list up to date when release dates move to later points in the year or, inevitably, into 2023. 

Don’t despair, though. There are a lot of games launching in 2022. Not all of them have dates yet, so our TBA section is stuffed with fantastic games that haven’t quite nailed down a precise release date for this year. Keep checking back to make sure you don’t miss out on some of the smaller gems of the year in between all the big hitters.

Here’s your guide to all the new games of 2022 coming to PC.

2022 Games: The biggest upcoming games

2022 Games: January

January is kicking off the year with two excellent PC ports of console games. Monster Hunter Rise is following in the new tradition of Monster Hunter games on PC while Kratos breaks new ground by bringing God of War to PC for the first time. Not a bad start to 2022.

After that good warmup in January, things are really scheduled to heat up in February. Elden Ring and Total War: Warhammer 3 are two big, highly anticipated games launching fresh on PC. They’re joined by Dying Light 2, which is finally arriving after multiple delays.

Leading off as we start to move towards spring is the adorable looking fox-powered action-adventure Tunic, followed up by a re-imagining of SquareEnix’s original entry in the series in Final Fantasy Origins.
