Video game release dates 2022: PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch

Our big, comprehensive list of the video game release dates in 2022 and beyond, updated daily.

It is finally time! 2022 is the year where most of the bigger, highly-anticipated games from last year ended up. It’s the year of Elden Ring, Starfield, Dying Light 2, Windjammers 2, Horizon: Forbidden West, Warhammer 3, Stalker 2 and many, many more.

At least, that’s what it looks like right now, as some of those games could very well be pushed back yet again.

But let’s stay positive and take a look at what is unquestionably going to be a banner year in video game history. As always, this list keeps track of as many video game release dates as we can find. We’re bound to miss a few, but the majority will be here.

Release dates change all the time, and some developers go dark months at a time, but we update this list daily and try to say on top of it - so things will shift around and get added/removed very often. Keep it bookmarked, and check back often to see when a game you’ve been waiting for is going to be released. If you missed it, here are all video games released in 2021.

Like with every year’s list, it will eventually break into segments for the different months as the year takes shape. For now, here’s how we’ve arranged them.

January 2022 video game release dates
