The most exciting new gaming releases still to come in 2022

2022 has been an exciting year for gamers, and there are a variety of different console games and PC games that are still to be released over the course of the year’s remaining months. In this guide, we’re running through some of the games that will have people excited for the rest of 2022 and beyond.

As well as the console games being released, there are always a variety of different casino games and mobile games being made too. On Playstar Casino, there are constantly new gaming releases, and different slot games as well as table games.

Overwatch 2

Overwatch has become a global sensation, and the sequel was announced way back in 2019. We’re finally getting this game in 2022, so those who are still playing the first Overwatch will be particularly excited.

The game is said to be more focused on the main story of the game and has new story missions, which are more engrossing and make this a game that you can play on your own. There are also some really cool new characters, with Junker Queen being used in a lot of promotional videos and people getting excited for some new protagonists.

Skull and Bones

Pirate games are currently very on trend, and the huge developer Ubisoft has made an amazing and realistic game that has an open world — and open sea — design. It has a lot of the same people involved that helped to make the Assassin’s Creed Black Flag game. 

The main campaign mode seems to be an interesting option with a story that takes place on the Indian Ocean, but there are also some online versions where you can go head-to-head with players around the world. There are also the perils of the sea, and even the Kraken is ready to strike in the sea as you explore. 

Skull and Bones has developed a fair amount of hype.

God of War: Ragnarok

God of War: Ragnarok has to be one of the most talked-about and highly anticipated games of the year. The trailer received millions of views in no time at all as it showed Kratos and a grown Atreus. Cory Barlog is no longer involved in the games. The story still follows the family dynamic as they travel to Asgard in addition to introducing new characters, including Odin and other gods. This is the end of the Norse part of the story, and it is bound to have the feel of a finale.

Mario and Rabbids: Spark of Hope

This is one of the most random games on our list, we must admit. The crossover was surprisingly successful the first time around and now the characters are off on a galactic quest to stop Cursa, the new villain in search of consuming all the world’s energy. 

There are some new characters in the game and there’s also more of an open world feel to it, as well as more mini games and combat than the first crossover in this weird (but brilliant) matchup.


Who would have thought that farming games would prove to be such a huge genre? They certainly have grown to be something that people absolutely love, and this may be the reason behind the launch of Harvestella. 

Only announced in June, the developers at Square Enix have created the game, which has a lot in common with the king of this genre, Stardew Valley. It features farming and fishing as well as a perilous season called the Quietus. As well as making it hard to grow anything, this season is said to have “deadly dust” and even some potential villains lurking about.

The game has an open world feel and is set in the fictional location of Lethe. Gamers can explore this town and do as they wish, with many ways available to interact with the locals.


These are just some of the amazing games coming this year, and there are even reboots and new games in the Pokémon saga to come. Zelda’s much-awaited return in Breath of the Wild 2 has now been delayed till 2023, when we will also see an Avatar tie-in game, and plenty of other exciting releases. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and The Last of Us are also among the games to get reboots and updates in 2022, a truly great year for gaming as there are more releases than ever for our consoles and devices.
