A new year means a whole new library of game releases to get excited for, and there are plenty of new games coming to Xbox consoles. Between the next generation of the Microsoft console in the Xbox Series X/S and the longevity of the Xbox One, new and old gen gamers have something to look forward to. 2022 has plenty of new releases across several genres to add to your library of favorites. New games? New ports? Xbox has got you covered this year.
No one would blame you if you haven't gotten your hands on an Xbox Series X yet. New generation consoles have been notoriously difficult to obtain due to a semiconductor chip shortage amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankfully, that hasn't stopped Xbox One gamers from diving into some of the latest and greatest Xbox games like the critically acclaimed Halo Infinite. As such, 2022 has a whole list of new Xbox games for everyone to check out.
Here are some exciting Xbox games coming out in 2022.
Nobody Saves the World
A brand-new RPG is coming to Xbox consoles and PC from the creators of the critically acclaimed indie title Guacamelee!
