Twitter shares the most tweeted about games during 2022 so far

There were approximately 1.5 billion tweets about gaming on Twitter during the first half of the year.

While the latter half of 2022 may seem a little barren, the first half of the year was pretty good for games. We saw Elden Ring perform even better than we all anticipated, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga arrived, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus introduced us to a new style of Pokemon game. So, there's been lots to talk, and tweet, about.

That being said, Twitter has collected data on some of the most talked about games on the platform during the first half of 2022. It's not all that surprising, but it's interesting to see what titles are taking the platform by storm this year.

Check out the latest teaser for Twitter users' favourite game right now, Genshin Impact.

There were approximately 1.5 billion tweets about gaming to round up, with the report from Twitter detailing the most tweeted about games, gaming personalities, esports teams, and more.

Here's the verdict for the most tweeted about titles of the first half of 2022!

The Legend of Zelda has clearly been spurred along by news of the Breath of the Wild sequel's delay, earlier this year.
