Upcoming PC Games 2023

There’s nothing more exciting than finally seeing a game announce its release, especially if it’s been years in the making or delayed. New releases don’t always mean new games – they can also include remakes or remasters of older games. Getting to see a beloved favorite get the attention it deserves can be just as satisfying as seeing a brand-new release or sequel come out.

Game announcement trailers have been pouring out left and right lately, especially for the beloved Silent Hill franchise – a pleasant surprise for us all. Lots of these games have yet to decide when they’ll exactly release, and we’ll likely have to wait until next year to find out more. Regardless, there are still numerous games that have actually confirmed their release for 2023 and specified the platforms they’ll be releasing on.

The majority of upcoming games will be released on multiple platforms, including PC, but some are exclusive to certain consoles. Not everyone owns a console, especially since there are plenty of games available for PC nowadays, so we’ll be focusing solely on games that support PC. As a result, we’ll be skipping out on any games exclusive to consoles, including most switch games.

Now we’ll once again be able to see the HD-2D pixel art against beautiful 3D backdrops, along with a set of all-new characters.

Like the last game, Octopath Traveler 2 features eight unique travelers, each with their own stories to tell. The game is set in the world of Solistia and retains most of the mechanics from the first game, such as path actions and the break/boost system. If you’re a big fan of JRPGs and pixel art, you’ll probably enjoy Octopath Traveler 2 – and don’t worry, you don’t need to play the first game to play this one.
