2021 was supposed to see the release of some pretty big-name games, but sadly most of them have been pushed back once more to 2022. Even so, it’s better to push back a game and work on it more rather than releasing a half baked game that doesn’t live up to the hype - we’re looking at you Cyberpunk 2077.

Anyways, let’s get into it, shall we? Here are some of our favourite big-name games that were delayed this year.

Gotham Knights​

What happens after Batman? Well, Gotham Knights delve into that narrative wholeheartedly with a co-op mechanic attached. The game was supposed to be released last July but has been pushed back to a 2022 release.

We’re looking forward to this one, it has all the dark neo-noir broodiness of Batman all over it, even if he’s not around anymore. Hopefully, the delay would give more time to the devs to polish and buff it up close to perfection.

Dying Light 2​

Truth be told, Dying Light 2 has made some pretty grand promises in the creation of their game so it makes sense that they keep getting delayed. Hopefully, they hold true to their promises though, as it would result in a really good game. Even better if all the bugs and glitches are minimised.

Dying Light 2 promises a complex narrative structure to go with their survival horror action RPG (that’s a lot to take in). You’ll be navigating an apocalyptic open world filled with zombies while navigating the seven different factions to make some tough decisions on whether to join their cause or not.

Horizon Forbidden West​

The game was originally planned to be released in the Holiday season of 2021 and has now been pushed back to a February 2022 release instead. With how beautifully made the previous game was and how well it functioned, we’re not mad that they’re taking their time to work on this masterpiece for the next-gen console.

From all the trailers and released gameplays, this looks to be a pretty stunning game so we’re excited to experience it. Horizon Forbidden West is the sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, where you continue the story of Aloy’s adventures - a huntress in a world full of deadly machines.

Resident Evil Re:Verse​

A third-person shooter multiplayer game where you get turned into a bioweapon when you’re defeated, and back into a human again when your bioweapon form is killed. This is a cycle that continues until the end of the game. Sounds like a whole lot of chaotic fun in true Resident Evil fashion.

The whole point of the match is to collect points, the person with the most points at the end of the match wins. So really, it doesn’t matter how many people you kill. As a game that was originally supposed to come out for Resident Evil Village, that’s very much unlikely as Re:Verse is pushed back to 2022.


A lot of people don’t understand why a game about a stray cat would garner so much attention and to that we say, don’t knock it till you try it. You get to play an orange cat in a cyberpunk city where humans were replaced with robots. What started out as a game that centres around playing as a cat has evolved into something else entirely.

You literally play as the cat, but everything about it seems and feels more immersive. The movements and mechanics of the game prove to be a fun challenge for you to navigate. It will be released in 2022, so keep an eye out.

Hogwarts Legacy​

The game is set in the 1800s era of Hogwarts, before all the shenanigans we see in the books and movies. An action RPG into the magical wizarding world where nothing is impossible. It looks like a reimagining of the universe from a different perspective, and we’re excited to experience it.

The visuals are fluid and absolutely stunning, the gameplay looks engaging and the characters seem fun to be around. The combination of it all with magic and a familiar world that doesn’t borrow from the movies feels refreshing.

Ghostwire Tokyo​

When 99% of the Tokyo population disappears and the city becomes a haunted mess, it’s up to you to defeat the ghosts and spirits that have spawned. Ghostwire Tokyo has an interesting concept and has been pushed back to 2022 as its team are looking to improve the game without any crunching involved.

You’ll be fighting and banishing evil spirits and ghosts with karate-like moves while casting banishment spells. From the looks of it, the game will be a fun experience and a PS5 exclusive.

Final Note​

We’re excited to see the release of these games next year and hopefully, it would all be polished and live up to the expectations that were set by their developers. Anyways, if you’re ever looking for some gaming products to beef up your games or gaming experience like Discord Nitro or PlayStation Gift Cards, you can head on over to OffGamers right here.
