The final quarter of the year is usually the busiest time on the gaming calendar, and 2022 isn’t bucking that trend. Ahead of some massive releases in November and December, October is getting the party started with a collection of AAA heavyweights, quirky indie games, and some fascinating titles fighting for a spot this month. From the long-in-development Gotham Knights to the billion-dollar return of Call of Duty, there’s no shortage of digital entertainment to look forward to in October.
You can also bank on the early release of Overwatch 2 to generate some headlines; Bayonetta 3 looks ready to provide some devilish fun on Switch; and Persona 5 is making a royal appearance on new platforms. And that’s without mentioning Uncharted making its leap to PC, Dragon Ball: The Breakers taking the franchise in a surprising new direction, and Scorn having some very suggestive imagery. Whatever your taste, there’s a good chance you’ll find something for you this month.
