We’re looking forward to a ton of new games in 2022, as newcomers and trusted names in VR development alike are prepping to release bigger and better VR experiences.

Here we look at our most anticipated titles that are scheduled to release in 2022. We’ve ordered games according to their confirmed release dates, then the rash of titles sporting the ever-nebulous ‘coming in 2022’ release window, and then games that ought to arrive this year (TBA).

Note: There’s a few gaming events on the horizon which ought to feature some big names in VR development. We’ll be updating this article as those events happen, so check back soon. Here’s a quick breakdown:

Returning this year on April 20th is Meta’s Gaming Showcase, which should have new games and updates for the Quest 2 platform. We’re also hoping to hear more about the launch titles coming to PSVR 2, so there’s bound to be an event at some point as well.
