The ten “most touted” new video game titles scheduled for release in 2022, 2023, and beyond, according to a recent analysis of Google search data, have been identified.
Grand Theft Auto 6, by Rockstar Games, tops a list of the ten allegedly “most hyped” future video game releases, according to the survey. The top 10 most anticipated forthcoming video games scheduled to release in 2022, 2023, and beyond were discovered through analysis of Google search results by the free jigsaw puzzle website I’m-A-Puzzle, with some unexpected results.
The games’ typical monthly global searches were used to create the list. By a wide amount, Grand Theft Auto 6 grabbed first place with 3,014,790 monthly searches. With 1,641,470 searches, the next Harry Potter action-RPG from Avalanche Software, Hogwarts Legacy, came in a distant second. With 1,298,120 searches, God of War Ragnarok, PlayStation’s most popular Christmas game, came in third.
Overwatch 2 (1,051,850 searches) and Starfield (690,490 searches), an open-world sci-fi game from Bethesda, round out the top five. There may be a few different explanations for the significant decline from Overwatch 2 to Starfield. In addition to being a multi-platform release, Overwatch 2 is also scheduled to go on sale in the coming weeks. In contrast, Starfield doesn’t yet have a release date and will only be available on PC and Xbox Series X. Given this, it makes reasonable that Bethesda’s game is currently receiving less attention than Blizzard’s planned hero-shooter.
Grand Theft Auto 6
God of War Ragnarok
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Baldur’s Gate 3
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 (aka Tears of the Kingdom)
The bottom five are somewhat unexpected. With 627,980 searches, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 from 2022 came in second to Starfield. Gotham Knights (570,620 searches), Baldur’s Gate 3 (553,690 searches), the Breath of the Wild sequel Tears of the Kingdom (546,890 searches), and Diablo 4 were the next most popular games (519,040 searches). The study’s most startling finding is that Modern Warfare 2 didn’t even make the top five, despite the fact that, after all is said and done, the game will almost surely be the most popular new game release of 2022.
The fact that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 hadn’t yet held its big announcement event or multiplayer beta could have been a factor. For PlayStation players with early access, the multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is currently available. If the survey were conducted today, MW2 would probably be considerably higher on the list.
Whatever the case, the list demonstrates that gamers have a wide variety of thrilling new video games to look forward to. Some of these titles, including Overwatch 2, Gotham Knights, and Modern Warfare 2, will be available relatively soon, while others, like Hogwarts Legacy and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, won’t be available until 2023. Grand Theft Auto 6, for example, still has no release date at all, but gamers should have no trouble finding other games to play while they wait.
