The Most Anticipated Game Releases of 2023: A Look Ahead

By Jax


Let’s take a look at the most exciting game releases of 2023! I’m not going to sugarcoat it. 2022 has been just about as diabolical and heartfelt as 2020 and 2021. Between the political turmoil, the worldwide pandemic, and the general anxiety of day-to-day life, it’s easy to feel like we’re stuck in a never-ending loop of bad news. And while there’s no denying that 2022 has been an equally challenging year, there’s also no denying that things are slowly but surely beginning to improve.

Part of that improvement comes in the form of some much-anticipated gaming releases! Games like Phantom Hellcat and RoboCop: Rogue City are set to debut in 2023, and they’re just the tip of the iceberg. With any luck, 2023 will be a year we can all look back on with fondness and nostalgia. Here’s hoping that it’s everything we’ve been hoping for.

So, what does the future hold for gamers? What upcoming game releases should we be on the lookout for in 2023? Here’s a look at our top ten most anticipated game releases!

Beyond NRG - Blog - Dead Island 2 - 2023 Game Releases

#1 – Dead Island 2

The long-awaited Dead Island 2 release date has been confirmed, with Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver aiming to bring the zombie game next year. The original launch title for 2011 had received rave reviews when it came out but saw less success two years later as Techland moved their focus onto their Dying Light series following an impressive beginning at what they do best – creating zombies! On one side, there’s the bloodlust – on the other, there’s an all-new feature where gamers can enlist the help of Amazon Alexa, using voice control to swap weapons, set waypoints, goad zombies, and much more!

Release Date: 3rd February 2023

Platform: PC, Xbox, Playstation

Beyond NRG - Blog - Forspoken

#2 – Forspoken

The developers of Final Fantasy XV are launching a new open-world action role-playing game called Forspoken, and boy, does it look good! The story follows Frey Holland, living in New York City when she gets pulled into the fantasy world of Athia by an unknown magical force and uses her abilities to take down its authoritarian rule, with hopes that one day it will be possible for people like herself – Americans trapped between two worlds – to return home again. Forspoken co-director Takeshi Terada has revealed that players can expect an average playthrough to take approximately 30-40 hours to complete.

Release Date: 24th January 2023
