  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S
  • Release date: TBA 2023

The Diablo franchise represents one of the best dungeon-crawler ARPGs out there, but Blizzard doesn’t always know how to handle it.

At least, that’s what we hope they’ll do.

#5 Black Myth: Wukong

Final Fantasy 16
  • Developer: Square Enix
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PlayStation 5
  • Release date: Summer 2023

The Final Fantasy franchise is easily one of the most recognized and beloved RPG franchises ever. Every time the main title is set to come out, it’s a big deal. Final Fantasy XVI is the next one in line, and so far, this game is looking to be bigger and grimmer than any that came before. In the title, you’ll be in a realm that is kept aloft due to a set of crystals controlled by six different factions. When things start to go wrong and demons are summoned to the land, only tragedy will follow. A tragedy that’ll inspire Clive Rosfield to go on a mission of revenge to stop what’s happening.

#3 Starfield

  • Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox Series X/S
  • Release date: Q1/Q2 2023

Bethesda is known for making big RPG worlds with lots of characters and stories, but with Starfield, they’re going to try and top themselves in all the ways that matter.

In the game, you’ll be part of a spacefaring set of explorers from Earth, with the goal of checking out newly found planets in order to get rare artifacts. Bethesda has promised a very expansive universe to go and explore, and there are plenty of gameplay elements that they’ve kept hidden from us at this point. That just means that when Starfield arrives, it might just be even grander than we’re expecting it to be.

#2 The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

  • Developer: Nintendo
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: Nintendo Switch
  • Release date: May 12, 2023

No one would be lying if they said that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took the beloved franchise and raised it to an even higher tier of greatness. It revamped the game’s tried and true formula for the better, and the unique use of story and gameplay elements made it one that fans were truly hungry for more. That’s where The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 comes in.

While we know precious little about the game, it is a true sequel to BotW, and the teases of it indicate the return of an old enemy. Now, if we could only get the game’s name…

#1 Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

  • Developer: Square Enix
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PlayStation 5
  • Release date: Winter 2023

There are a few titles from this list that could’ve taken the #1 spot, but Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is highly-anticipated to a monumental degree.

Rebirth will continue the remade and remastered story of FFVII, but this time, we’ll finally be out of Midgard, getting to explore the vast world. The gorgeous title will only be coming to PlayStation 5 to start due to its graphical demands. Given that Remake was so solid in its gameplay, you can totally expect Rebirth to be just as great.
