Hogwarts Legacy, Octopath Traveler 2… All video games releasing February 2023
After a relatively discreet January in the video game category, the time has come for the giants. February and March will both be key months in terms of releases.
[Mis à jour le 1er février 2023 à 17h18] After more than three years of the pandemic, the world of video games is reviving. Some of the most anticipated projects by the public are planned for the first half of 2023, and the month of February saw several of them. In a few weeks, fans will be able to enter the fantastical world of Hogwarts in Hogwarts Legacy, travel the world in Octopath Traveler 2, immerse themselves in the horrors of The Forest or Resident Evil 4, or face the real Atomic Heart. Enough to occupy a long winter night controller or mouse in hand. We chronicle the upcoming video game releases just below.
February is a month that all players should be on the lookout for, as it will be the release month for one of the most anticipated games of recent years: Hogwarts Legacy. This RPG from Warner Games and Avalanche Software invites players to live in the shoes of a 19th-century Hogwarts student, in an open world that screams with realism and detail. A release that comes so close to the dreams of many book or movie fans, finally giving them an immersive triple-A simulation.

Named the most anticipated game of 2023, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom is an event in itself. The eyes of the whole world will be on this release straight from the Nintendo studio, and one that intends to align itself with the success of its acclaimed predecessor: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo therefore offers us the sequel to the most popular open world to date, and the second strong argument in the permanent war of home consoles. Tears of the Kingdom will be available on May 12, 2023.

For the end of the first half of 2023, players will be able to find two licenses they have missed in recent years. Blizzard led the dance with the release of the massive Diablo 4, expected for nearly a decade to take over the much criticized Diablo 3. This would be a watershed moment in the history of fellow studio Activision, for a long time under the scrutiny of criticism and even justice for its questionable choices when it came to in-game monetization, or even when it came to team management. On the other hand, PS5 players will be able to enjoy one of the most important releases in the Sony world, with the arrival of the juggernaut Final Fantasy XVI on June 22.
- street fighter 6 – June 2, 2023 – PS4 PS5 Xbox PC series
- Diablo IV – June 6, 2023 – PS5 Xbox PC series
- Final Fantasy XVI – June 22, 2023 – PS5
