5. The Callisto Protocol
Players holding to hope of a Dead Space sequel rejoice, as The Callisto Protocol is the next best thing. Developed by Striking Distance Studios, this haunting sci-fi horror comes from the same minds that co-created Dead Space back in 2008.
The Callisto Protocol finds Jacob Lee (Josh Duhamel) imprisoned at Black Iron, attempting to forge an escape during an alien invasion. However, the invasion isn’t as it seems.
Release Date: December 2, 2022.
4. Gotham Knights
Batman is dead and the Court of Owls have overrun Gotham City. Who will save innocent bystanders from this dreadful peril? While Rocksteady Studios work on bringing the Suicide Squad to our consoles, WB Games Montréal is rounding up the Bat-Family.
Gotham Knights takes place outside of the Arkham-Verse canon but will borrow some of its story elements to get the ball rolling. With a gritty Gotham to explore and multiple heroes to master, Batman fans are going to relish playing this one.
Release Date: October 25, 2022.
You can pre-order Gotham Knights from £59.95 on the GameByte Shop.

Modern Warfare 2 is set to launch a revamped version of Warzone alongside it, taking advantage of the power of next-gen gaming. Where are we dropping folks?
Release Date: October 28, 2022.

1. God of War Ragnarök
2018’s God of War undoubtedly sits among the greatest games of all time. The sequel, which has still been confirmed to come out this year, looks to continue and build on what made the previous game so incredible.
Looking to prevent Ragnarök, this namesake game will be pushing Kratos and now-teenage son, Atreus, to the limit. While taking on ally-turned-foe on the path of revenge, Freya, the duo will be tested in what’s sure to be an epic conflict with God of Thunder, Thor. All the while, God of War Ragnarök will also be a hunt for answers regarding Atreus’ identity, revealed in the last game. Simply put, we can’t wait for all the be revealed, along with this action-packed climax to the Norse series of games.
Release Date: Q4 2022
You can still buy the 2018 God of War for £11.95 at the GameByte Shop.
