PC games that will be released in 2022 and beyond

What are the most exciting future games to look forward to this year and next? The constant emotions we go through during the annual PC release schedule are hope, expectation, anguish, and joy.

Year after year, games – both on Steam and elsewhere – are made in such different degrees of quality that none of them is certain to be a hit. Masterpieces are launched alongside complete catastrophes, series are established while others fade away, and now and again, a game meets our expectations.

So how are we supposed to sort through all of the announcements, videos, and teases to figure out which of the new PC games we should spend our finite amount of enthusiasm on? We old PCGamesN sages have been around the videogame block a few times, so we’re in a great position to inform you about the games you should be saving up for. The next PC games you should keep an eye on, as well as their planned release dates, are listed below.


In the forthcoming King of Fighters game, another large cast of new and returning fighters will battle it out on a range of classic levels. There will be a huge lineup change, with Shun’ei, Meitenkun, and Benimaru Nikaido leading the Hero Team this time. SNK also hopes to add rollback netcode to assure stable online gaming.


Hunters, rejoice: the new Monster Hunter game will be released on Steam in January. As you dash across the rugged area of Kamura Village with your faithful malamute, you’ll face a broad selection of unique foes.


This co-op shooter, a blend of Rainbow Six Siege and Left 4 Dead, has a lot to live up to. More monsters will hinder your efforts to gather information on the strange menace as you progress further into the thick black alien slime. Fans of the series will recognise a lot of what Extraction has to offer, but it’s a departure from Siege’s ultra-competitive esports shooting action.


You’d better get ready for the Dying Light 2 release date because the choices you make in this zombie parkour sequel will have a huge impact on the greater world as groups battle for dominance. That’s only during the day; if you’re not careful, the night might completely strip you of your humanity.


Ghostwriter: Tokyo is an action-adventure game with a twist from the creators of the Evil Within titles, with all the spookiness but none of the survival-horror components that entails.

The GhostWire: Tokyo E3 announcement trailer reveals that the game’s storey revolves around the mysterious disappearances of people from their home city of Tokyo. Let’s hope this curiosity doesn’t disappear as well.
