Still, for fans of the franchise, it will integrate elements not seen for many of its editions, such as the presence of Moogles, a race that debuted in Final Fantasy III. This Square Enix game will debut on PlayStation 5 on June 22.
Bethesda and Xbox will have an overly ambitious game in 2023 with Starfield. Each planet visited will have its biomes, in addition to the active participation of Artificial Intelligence for the generation of missions.

Hollow Knight: Silk Song
In the history of indies, few games have been ranked among the best experiences, and Hollow Knight is one of the games that achieved more than this; therefore, 2023 will be the year its sequel finally arrives.
The details about this new game are still few, and although images of its development have been shown, it is important to note that it went from being a DLC of the first game to a completely second installment. It is expected to go on sale in the first half of the year.
Silent Hill 2 Remake
The legendary horror saga, Silent Hill, will have a new life cycle, as the remake of the acclaimed Silent Hill 2 was announced in October, which will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 5, although without a release date.

It is an independent platform and action game, which has many expectations due to the great acceptance of the first title; however, few details of its development are known, although its launch is expected sometime in 2023.
Many new games and game editions are expected to launch this year, but we can’t list them all here. However, the games we listed are, in our opinion, among the most exciting games that got many gamers talking.
