As you can see, so it is Deathloop which, this year, appropriates the place of most named title, which we find quite justified in view of the performance delivered by the title of Arkane Studios. Microsoft and Bethesda being represented a lot, it is finally Sony that takes a back seat with the noticed Ratchet & Clank : Rift Apart and Returnal knowing that the firm is placing two names in the most anticipated titles of 2022.

Obviously, we can’t help but appreciate the fact thatIt Takes Two, the transformation of the cooperative ambitions of Josef Fares, convinced and to notice that Nintendo sticks its tongue out a little in this year 2021 with only Metroid Dread at the heart of attention.

But on your side, would you have chosen other titles?
