Our Most Anticipated 2022 Games

"2021 has been a great year for video games. We’ve had It Takes Two, Forza Horizon 5 and Chicory: A Colorful Tale just to name a few. The year has however seen a huge number of delays announced. The majority of those are pushing release dates out of this year and into 2022. The first quarter of next year is absolutely fit to burst with big releases. So much so that I’d expect at least a couple to ‘blink’ and push back further into the year. With so many great-looking projects listed for the next 12 months, we thought we’d share our most anticipated 2022 games with you." Paul @ Thumb Culture

Looks like you are looking to start a players vs sales debate.

Here in the uk starfield is available for £12 in the bargain bins.

This doesn’t happen with Sony or Nintendo ‘s big first party games

Oh wait it isn’t first party, they were always going to have starfield anyway, they just brought the publisher and decided not to release on PlayStation

@purple101

Sony and Nintendo games never go to the bargain bin? Never Every? Not one game? That's a great achievement .

abstractel3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

14 million copies excluding game pass downloaders? Game was bound to be pretty successful given dev's reputation & MS's marketing. Still impressive considering it's at best an above average game that launched at 30fps. I played it on PC, so didn't have to deal with that. I liked it but this was not what I expected from the developers of Skyrim and Fallout.

Btw, is Far Harbor size a good size? Not sure if that comparison means good or bad for the DLC size-wise.

MrNinosan4d ago

14 million installs out of how many GamePass subscribers?
Starfield was supposed to be THE game of the generation, and providing it for free to over 25 million users should imo have a higher install base.

I like Starfield, even bought the game, but it's sadly nowhere near a game of the generation, not even one of the best games last year.

Hope it will make the same turn around as Cyberpunk, FFXIV and No Man Sky 👍

Armaggedon4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

The way people keep turning their attention to it says otherwise. People rely too much on statistics. It doesnt matter if people stopped playing it. People stop playing games

Stanlittle4d ago

Purple101 come on man stop lying I'm here and you are talking about trade in credit.

fr0sty4d ago

Trade in credit is still on sale. That means they're not moving copies as fast as they'd hoped to, so they're starting to employ different schemes to move it faster.

purple1013d ago

Currently £15 at Smyths

"Starfield doomers punching air."

There´s nothing else they can do right now.

They should know better that games Bethesda Softworks has crazy legs.

So happy to know that we´ll be getting annual expansions! Bethesda is definitely better under Xbox with more money to fund their games, and more freedom to create.

Guess the game might be good in 2 years.

-Foxtrot4d ago

May aswell wait for the final completed game then

Terry_B4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

Thats the plan, worked well with Cyberpunk too

Reaper22_4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

Huge numbers. Congratulations to Microsoft and Bethesda.

ChasterMies4d ago

A $3 trillion company couldn’t do this without your support.

BeHunted4d ago

Sony will wish they had reached 14 million players with Concord

badz1494d ago

@BeHunted

why use Concord? is it coming from a huge developer in the ballpark of Bethesda?

here:

https://www.psu.com/news/ma...

Spider-man 2 over 11mil units SOLD and Helldivers 2 over 12mil units SOLD. Bethesda wish they can use the word SOLD with Starfield LOL

MrNinosan4d ago

@BeHunted
Why use Concord as an example, that doesn't come with a Subscription service that is handed out for free when buying a burger?

Use Astros Playroom for a better measurement, 58+ million installs 😘

Reaper22_4d ago

Doesn't matter. It's a good accomplishment. The game is a success.

That's a possible revenue of nearly a £billion if sales were your main target

fr0sty4d ago

but instead, it wasn't, and GP subscriptions haven't risen by $3 billion, in fact, they're stagnant, so they've lost money.

ChasterMies4d ago

These numbers are difficult to parse without context. How do we compare nunbers played on Game Pass with actual sales of games like Skyrim and Cyberpunk 2077? A good start would be achievement data. If we know how many players kept playing past the first few missions, we would have a good idea of how many players considered the game a value addition for Game Pass.

MrNinosan4d ago

Still difficult to calculate.
I mean, every single MS game are supposed to be on GamePass Ultimate.
If you combine all those possible sales and on top of that, remove all costs for third party games on the services.

Would the total revenue/profit be bigger or smaller than the total revenue from GamePass alone?

I'm most certain this is eating profit madly

ChasterMies4d ago

$204/year for Game Pass Ultimate is a lot of potential profit for Microsoft. It’s $2B/year for every 10M subscribers. That pays for a lot of game development. The problem is that Microsoft also has to pay all those 3rd parties for their games. I think the future of Game Pass is fewer 3rd party games.

BeHunted4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

@ChasterMies

Amazon India: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is about $100 for 24 Months, or $19 for 12 months (2x 6 Months Game Pass Core subscription). VPN does the trick when redeeming on Microsoft's website.
