The RPGs of 2022: Every RPG and their release dates

If you are looking for the 2021 RPG list, click here.

Here we list the upcoming RPGs we expect to see in 2022. This listing will often be updated throughout the year.

Now - we know - defining what exactly is an 'RPG' is can be a little tricky. While some of the games below may not best be labeled as an 'RPG', we wanted to include games that have evident role-playing elements. We allow for a little bit of wiggle room.

Let us also note: our list only includes games with confirmed English versions set to release in 2022 and will be updated regularly throughout the year. Games that do not have confirmed English localizations or have not yet been announced with 2022 release plans will not be included.

One final note: There are many RPGs currently in Early Access that may release in full in 2022. We don't try to predict when these games will leave Early Access, so they will not be included until a hard date is announced.

Feel free to let us know in the comments if you see any omissions or mistakes!
