The 2023 calendar will be particularly busy for video games. Indeed, the release of some titles that should normally take place in 2022 has been postponed for various reasons. On the other hand, several new releases have already been announced for next year. Here are the most expected ones.
Gamers can rejoice. There will be plenty of new releases in the video game world next year. Whether you play on PlayStation, Nintendo, Xbox or PC, you’ll definitely want to know what games are expected to be released in 2023.
Final Fantasy 16
The long awaited Final Fantasy 16 will be released on June 22, 2023 exclusively on PS5. The mystery remains intact as very few details have been revealed so far. However, gamers can be sure to enjoy a very high graphic quality, as shown in the trailers. It’s also worth noting that the exclusivity will only last 6 months. Gamers who use other platforms should therefore be able to enjoy it as early as 2024.
The Final Fantasy saga has another release expected in 2023: Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth. This is not surprising considering the success of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. In this chapter, the player’s steps lead him to the Gold Saucer, a gaming paradise that includes a casino. You can play free blackjack, poker, roulette and other games offered there, right from your home. It’s a simple way to train to play in a real online casino later on.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
With no less than 25.8 million copies sold, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has quickly become a reference in the field of open world video games. Will its sequel, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, be as successful? Postponed several times, this new opus is one of the game releases expected for 2023. It will be released on Nintendo Switch on May 12.
We still know very little about this new game. Indeed, Nintendo has only revealed a few details to keep players in suspense until the moment they discover it. In any case, the adventure still takes place in the kingdom of Hyrule and exploration will remain the basis of the gameplay.
Dead Space is a cult space survival horror released in 2008. Its fifteenth anniversary will be marked by a remake. It is not an upgraded version, but a new opus based on the story and gameplay of the original game.
Dead Space Remake will be available on Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC from January 27, 2023. Note that Electronic Arts has been working on this project since 2021. The publisher has therefore had plenty of time to add new technologies and options as well as to improve the realism of the game.
Hogwarts Legacy: the Hogwarts Legacy
Hogwarts Legacy: the Hogwarts Legacy is an action-adventure RPG set in the XIXᵉ century in the Harry Potter universe. In it, the player takes on the role of a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that poses a great threat to the wizarding world. He will have the ability to come and go freely at Hogwarts, a dream that fans have been cherishing for several years.
As a reminder, the title was originally scheduled for release in 2022. However, the studio Avalanche Software was forced to postpone it. Finally, it will take place on February 10, 2023 on PS5 and PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It remains to be seen if this title can help disprove the myth about PC games that they are boring.
Diablo 4 also appears in the list of expected game releases for 2023. It must be said that the last episode of the game was over 10 years ago. The new title looks even colder and darker if the announcement trailer is to be believed. That said, it should include the elements that made Blizzard’s diabolical hack’n’slash so successful.
Players will be able to discover Diablo 4 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and PC on June 6, 2023. However, the game is already available for pre-order, with editions ranging from 69.99 to 99.99 euros.
