All May 2022 Video Game Release Dates
The May 2022 video game release dates include a number of highly anticipated indie titles, tabletop RPG-based games and more.
Video game releases in May 2022 offer a wide range of genres and titles. Highly anticipated indie games like Chronicle of Eiyuden: Rising and Hike to Yomito games based on tabletop RPGs like Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Demon Hunters, there’s a little something for everyone this month. The long awaited Evil Dead: The Game also releases in May after a small delay earlier in 2022.
After a sleepy January and a busy February of video game release dates, March maintained a fairly steady flow of new games across multiple genres while April slowed slightly. The list of May 2022 video game releases could continue to grow throughout the month. However, for now it seems to be mostly indie games – as not many AAA titles are released in May. Games expected for May 2022 – like those from Square Enix Speak – have been delayed until later in the year, and many more AAA titles are instead waiting to be released during the summer months.
Still, the May 2022 video game releases aren’t without some highlights. Evil Dead: The Game may be the biggest name in the group and looks promising. It’s not only Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Demon Hunters which gets a May 2022 release date. Tabletop RPG fans can also look forward to Vampire: The Masquerade – The Swan Song release on most available platforms. My time at Sandrockthe continuation of the excellent My time at Portiawill enter early access at the end of the month – May 26. Meanwhile, Chronicle of Eiyuden: Rising is a turn-based action-RPG prequel Chronicle of Eiyuden: One Hundred Heroes coming out in 2023.
