Now that 2023 is here there's a lot to look forward to—not least of which a few games we thought we'd be playing last year. The first quarter of the year is bringing us all sorts of long-awaited launches like Atomic Heart, Kerbal Space Program 2, and The Last of Us Part 1 on PC at last.


For the third year running, we've seen an increase in big games willing to push back their release dates to get a bit more development time. Not even just once, either. Some are still getting multiple delays before they finally hit our game libraries. Knowing that, let's call this a tentative 2023 games list. Inevitably, some of the names here will get kicked into the year 2024—a frightful number for me to be forced to type already. When they do, we'll be keeping track right here, just like we did last year.

From what we know so far, 2023 is going to be a huge year for RPGs. A lot of major series with long-in-the-works sequels are targeting this year for release dates. Starfield's delay put it in the early part of 2023, Baldur's Gate 3's early access is planned to end with a full release in August, and both Final Fantasy 16 and Diablo 4 are scheduled to turn up too.

Here are some of the biggest launches you have to look forwards to this month: that long-awaited Dead Space remake, Forspoken, and another Persona port for PC players. Check out all the other games launching this month further down the page in the new games of January section.Yet another Persona series game is making the jump to PC this year. After Persona 4 Golden and then Persona 5 Royale, Persona 3 Portable is the next to get an official port. This is of course another teen sleuths modern fantasy shindig, and one of the weirder ones of the series to boot. In P3, characters fire a fantastical "Evoker," a thing which totally, definitely is not a gun, at their own heads to summon their Personas. Otherwise, Persona 3 is more of the time-management, mystery, and highschool hijinks from the rest of the RPG series.


Modern New York teenager Frey Holland winds up in the magical world of Athia and, of all things, parkour ensues. With a magical bracelet and some explosive magical abilities, Frey skates, jumps, and wall runs her way around Athia's open world. Forspoken made a real impression based on its lovely looks when it was first revealed and a slightly less great impression with excessive banter in a later trailer. We'll see how the two mix when it finally hits the streets.
