Motive Studios at EA has indicated that it has been working on a remake of the original Dead Space, which is regarded as one of the top horror games of all time.

Hogwarts Legacy Logo

While not a direct suggestion of the Harry Potter books, Hogwarts Legacy draws heavily from the lore. You’ll play as a Hogwarts student in the 1800s, hundreds of years before Harry and co were born, but you’ll no doubt get up to plenty of wizardry mischief.

Atomic Heart

Atomic Heart has been actually on our radar for several years. This ambitious FPS-RPG hybrid from Mundfish has always appeared to be too good to be accurate, as if it were a somewhat wild mash-up of the vibes carried by BioShock, Fallout, and Far Cry. But Atomic Heart is nearing completion, with Mundfish collaborating with publisher Focus Entertainment to release the game in the world – and on Xbox Game Pass – on February 21, 2023.

Skull and Bones

Skull and Bones

Sea of Thieves may be one of many open-world pirate games on the market; Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones is also launching, with a much more realistic take on high-seas pirate battles. Skull and Bones are essentially Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag without the Assassins, as it’s being adeptly developed by much of the same acumen team behind Black Flag, and highly promises a sprawling solo campaign as you vie for control of the Indian Ocean in the 18th century. But the real focus appears to be online player-versus-player ship battles, in which each player controls their own warship in team-based fleet battles. Among the cannon fire will be supernatural elements, such as the top colossal tentacles of a great terrifying kraken lurking in the deep.
