After the recaps of the year 2022, here are the most anticipated games in 2023 on all platforms (we may not agree).
2022 is already coming to an end, and after making the review of the best AAA games and indie games of the year, we invite you to remember which are the most anticipated games of the coming year. Here is our selection of 10 titles not to be missed under any circumstances in 2023.
It is obviously a game extremely awaited by fans of witchcraft since 1997. Hogwarts Legacy takes players into the magical and dangerous world of Harry Potter for an epic adventure never before seen. No question here of retracing the epics of the young wizard, the story takes place at least 200 years before his birth and thus Voldemort or Albus Dumbledore are not even of this world yet.
You will have the opportunity to embody the magical version of yourselves and choose which house you will belong to during this school year filled with misadventures. To savor from February 10 on PS5, Xbox Series XS and PCand in April for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
Skull and Bones
The golden age of piracy will be honored in Skull and Bones, a game that has been eagerly awaited for a few years. The title already promises to compete with a big name in the genre, the very famous Sea of Thieves. With more photorealistic graphics and a gigantic open world, Ubisoft lets you explore imaginary seas and battle enemy ships with cannon fire.
The adventure is playable both solo and with others, you will have the possibility to personalize your character and your building and establish your code of piracy. To discover from March 9 on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
We remember loving the first installment of Star Wars Jedi, so we should really enjoy the second one. After Fallen Order, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor intends to continue the adventures of Cal Kestis after his breathless fight against Darth Vader himself. The latter fled at the end of the last game, so it is necessary to find him to wage a last war on him.
For the moment, very little information on the gameplay, the environment or even the history of the game is available, but the visuals already seduce us enormously. Like the first part, the title promises to be faithful to the Star Wars universe while giving us the benefit of fluidity and modern comfort, with a level design that is reminiscent of the best Souls. -like. It is expected for March 17 on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
For some, this game will already get the title of GOTY 2023. The long-awaited sequel to Breath of the Wild will finally arrive on Nintendo Switch, 6 years after the release of the last opus. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will bring you back to the lands of Hyrule, but also to its heights since the adventure will continue in the skies.
This is the great novelty of this opus, which already promises to be a visual delight, despite the still incomplete performance of the Switch compared to the latest generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft. This epic is to be found from next May 12.
street fighter 6
In the field of fighting games, we expect tekken 8 but also and mostly street fighter 6. Capcom is back with a new album that is just as explosive and promises to give us a real visual slap as modernity has imposed itself in the game. We are obviously entitled to a few new fighters in addition to illustrious characters who are signing their big comeback.
After testing it at Paris Games Week 2022, we can’t wait to regain its dynamism, controller in hand from June 2 on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
Another video game monument will also return in 2023 after a few years of waiting. Diablo IV will finally be out after some delays and internal issues at Blizzard. The success of Diablo Immortal on mobiles this year predicts a bright future for the even more bloodthirsty RPG, than we were able to test in preview.
A striking visual universe, dynamic and effective gameplay and a large-scale adversary, the next Diablo has something to appeal to fans of the franchise who have been waiting for this opus for more than 10 years already. It will be available from June 6 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
Hollow Knight Silksong
Unveiled at E3 2022 by Xbox and Bethesda, Hollow Knight Silksong shouldn’t be long. If we trust the words of Phil Spencer, the sequel toHollow Knight must see the light of day before the month of June. A godsend for those who had enjoyed the first installment of the franchise, one of the best metroidvania of recent years.
This time, you will embody Hornet, already present in the first game as an antagonist and then an ally of the Knight. you will therefore be back in the world of insects, although we are not yet sure if it is Hallownest. We will in any case deal with new enemies and dangers as well as a new convoluted story. The game is expected to be available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch consoles.
Many upcoming games have yet to find their release date and Starfield is part of. This space adventure developed by Bethesda is nevertheless one of the most anticipated titles, in particular thanks to its spectacular trailers which present its large-scale open world to us.
The story of Starfield is still quite mysterious, although its gameplay has already shown through several detailed videos. He too is a strong contender for the GOTY 2023, it remains to be seen whether he will succeed in hitting hard. It is expected during the year if no other postponement is planned in the meantime.
Another Bethesda nugget that we can’t wait to see in action. Developed by Arkane Austin, red fall is a new franchise centered around vampire hunting. In this co-op multiplayer game, you play as one of the members of a group of mercenaries, each ranging from their specialty to combat. Between technology and magic, everything is good to shrivel blood drinkers.
We love its ultra dynamic gameplay and its sharp humor that promises to make explosions. No specific release date has been announced for this game yet, but it won’t be long either.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
We end our selection with a title which has not yet revealed anything of its content, but which is already expected like the messiah. After the success of Marvel’s Spider-Man and its spin-off Miles Morales, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will bring Spider-Man back to center stage with an all-new story and state-of-the-art graphics.
In terms of immersion, Insomniac Games’ games are the best we do, so we shouldn’t be disappointed with this opus created especially for the PS5. We will surely be entitled to new character improvements as well as the return of very famous villains from the Spiderverse. No release date or even window has been announced, so you will have to be patient before you can swing between the buildings of Manhattan.
