Top 25 Most Anticipated Video Games of 2023

2023 is shaping up to be an incredibly busy year for video games. With the pandemic delaying the development of several major titles, many of those anticipated games were shifted to next year. While February seems to keep piling on release dates, the rest of the year might be equally as stacked. From Final Fantasy XVI and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom to Resident Evil 4 and Forspoken, here’s the top 25 most anticipated video games of 2023.

As a general rule, we’re only including games that have a confirmed 2023 release window. While Tekken 8 would’ve absolutely made the list, Bandai Namco hasn’t revealed a release year for it yet. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth also has a vague “Winter” release, which could extend into 2024. The list is also ranked based on a combination of poll rankings, message boards and our personal choices.

First and foremost, we couldn’t include every release on this list so here’s our honourable mentions: Baldur’s Gate 3, Skull and Bones, Octopath Traveler II, Atlas Fallen, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, The Lords of the Fallen, The Wolf Among Us 2, Silent Hill 2.
