Game Releases for October 2022

October is looking chockful of new game releases across genres. AAA titles, sports titles, indie games, superheroes, and a PS to PC convert too.

Game Releases for October 2022

It's almost October already. The year has flown by and we're already in the last quarter of 2022. Which, at least for gamers, is possibly the best time of the year... The last quarter of the year is when a lot of developers and publishers get release versions of their games onto the shelves in time for the end of year sales.

Add to that the fact that a lot of the game development delays that happened through 2020 and 2021 have been caught up on now. All that means we'll be spoiled for choice this year with a range of games from AAA blockbusters through to tiny indie developed titles. And the release flood is starting this October. Here's a brief look at a baker's dozen of those releases.
