Exciting Games on the Way

Overall, 2022 wasn’t the best year for video games, with Xbox seeing a 7 percent year-on-year decline in revenue. Luckily, however, 2023 is looking brighter for the games market. The highly anticipated Harry Potter-inspired title, Hogwarts Legacy, launches in February, as does the upcoming FPS action RPG Atomic Heart. Additionally, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will release in May.
