It’s worth mentioning Marvel’s Midnight Suns and Resident Evil Re:Verse as other upcoming video games of 2022 that will hook thousands of players worldwide. 

Now, it’s up to you. We hope you get the opportunity to play as many as possible from the previous list and enjoy the hard work the developers did these past years.
