What Video Games Are Releasing in January 2022?

Updated on

And it’s just like that — without a moment to spare, 2021 has dissolved and taken flight into the faraway horizon, leaving us to prepare for what’s to come. Fortunately for us, however, only good things linger on the other side of this day. January is finally here, as is 2022 and all its upcoming top-tier video games. But let’s talk about the here and now. Let’s gloss over this month in specific and see what’s expected to pour out of it.

The bad news is, you’re probably going to need to dust off those mounds of Boxing Day purchases you stocked up a few days back. Thanks to the industry banding together to pull off one incredibly early April Fools joke, January is heaving with releases — to the point that you’ll need another hard drive to acquire them all. And not just with low-level indie games — but top-shelf triple-A hits. So, get yourself ready for the month ahead. Clearly, it’s going to be a big one.
