#5 Assasin’s Creed Mirage
The upcoming Assassin’s Creed Mirage video game has been officially announced by Ubisoft. This new installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be developed by Ubisoft Montreal and will be set in the Middle East during the Ottoman Empire.

#4 Hogwarts Legacy
The highly-anticipated Hogwarts Legacy video game has officially been announced for release by Warner Bros Games and Avalanche Software. Set in the 1800s, players will take on the role of a new student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where they will learn magic, make allies and enemies, and uncover a hidden truth at the magical school. The game will feature an open-world Hogwarts and the surrounding areas, players will be able to explore iconic locations from the Harry Potter series such as the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade village. Players will be able to learn new spells and potions and customize their own character. The game’s Portkey Games label executive producer, Casey Hudson, has stated that the team has worked to create an immersive and faithful experience for Harry Potter fans.
Release Date: February 10, 2023
#3 Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is all buzzed up and ready to be released. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a game that not only shook up the formula of the long-standing series, but also helped establish the Switch as a launch title. When Link first stepped into Hyrule in the game, it was a lot different than it is now; a sandbox world of experimentation and discovery that still surprises those who go there six years later. The sequel, which is just around the corner, promises to let us see a lot more of this creative world and style of adventure as we go up in the air. We, therefore, get to see completely new sides to a setting we’ve already explored before. As well as that, it allows for a broad range of new possibilities. We still don’t know a lot about the story or some of the new aspects that have been teased in previous trailers.
Release Date: May 12, 2023
