The leaves are changing colour, the wind is warming up, and it’s nearly time for Halloween. Goodbye, cold and gross winter, and hello spring. And while this spring might not be as stacked as previous springs, with plenty of games delayed into 2022, it’s still packed with some big titles including Far Cry 6, Metroid Dread, Age of Empires IV, and Battlefield 2042.

Over the last few months hype has been building for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, as more characters get revealed for the Smash Bros-like game. Will the end product be worth all the excitement? We will find out in October. The same month sees Alan Wake returning via a remastered version, alongside remastered spins on Crysis and Super Monkey Ball. What’s old is new again!

For all you folks who have found and purchased a new-gen machine, there’s nothing truly exclusive launching for these still hard-to-find consoles, but games like Halo Infinite and Rider’s Republic will at least look and run better on PS5/Xbox Series X/S. So that’s something?

Oh and let’s not forget that this spring sees the release of a new console Metroid game with Dread out in October. So while the season may be a bit quiet compared to what seems to be a stacked autumn 2022, there are certainly some big names worth checking out over the next few months. Just remember that games can and often do get delayed, so some stuff might slip into winter or beyond. We’ll update this list as releases and delays get announced.
