There are not many doubts about it: the most awaited game of December 2022 is The Callisto Protocol, both for the editorial staff and for the site’s readers.
The last month of the year is not usually a harbinger of news, given that the common strategy, in the video game market, is to concentrate releases in the autumn period, in order to also take advantage of the moment of maximum expansion of purchases usually positioned around November, on Black Friday. However, between new market dynamics and various delays, it often happens that this rule is not followed to the letter, and fortunately this was the case for December 2022 as well, given that we find some releases of great importance, in an absolute sense. In this case, both surveys on the most anticipated game of december 2022 gave the same result for the first position: The Callisto Protocol it just seems to dominate the expectations among the editorial staff and the public.
It is not exactly a title that follows the Christmas spirit, it must be said, but this has never mattered much to the video game people, so the assorted dismemberment of otherworldly spatial aberrations is welcome.
On the other hand, even the tradition of “Christmas specials” has now been lost over time, so the issues are more than ever disconnected from each other. In any case, it is an extraordinarily rich month if we look at the classic standard of December, with the arrival of several triple A games, even of considerable substance. In addition to the aforementioned The Callisto Protocol, we also mention Need for Speed: Unbound, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion and Marvel’s Midnight Suns, just to name a few that are enough to make it clear how the end of 2022 is quite full of new releases.
The most awaited by the editorial staff
The internal survey editorial board, indeed, saw a close duel, with The Callisto Protocol winning by just one point. In the end, Glen Schofield and his new team Striking Distance’s curiosity about Dead Space’s spiritual heir still got the upper hand, despite the rather close release of Dead Space itself, a direct remake of the original, giving him probably some broken eggs in the basket. In any case, the fact that it is a new intellectual property can also give it an edge, detaching it from expectations and giving it greater creative freedom, even if the connections are clearly evident. So we can’t wait to delve into the dark recesses of the Black Iron prison on Callisto, to face a healthy dose of gruesome monstrosities in this great revival of modern cosmic horror.
In second position, but with a minimal gap to the photo finish, we find The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Obviously this is not a new game, but the general relaunch of the original CD Projekt RED thanks to the release of technical updates specially developed to make the most of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S hardware.
For those who already own the original version, and there will be many, theupdate is free, therefore it is an event that potentially involves a large number of people. The value of the game is indisputable and well known, with this new graphic design that aims to make it even better it is further enriched and ready to make a comeback in the coming weeks. Third position perhaps a bit surprising for Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 Reunion, the re-edition of the original released on PSP which will finally be playable on PC and home consoles as well, finally giving many people the opportunity to get to know different backgrounds and backgrounds on the history of Final Fantasy VII.
The most awaited by readers
The survey released to Multiplayer.it readers shows an even clearer result, but the most awaited title in this case too is the same: The Callisto Protocol imposes itself on all the others in a decidedly lively month. In this case, the preference was expressed more clearly, demonstrating how the Striking Distance game has made considerable inroads, despite the fact that it is a completely new title. On the other hand, the authors’ curriculum is remarkable and we have now had the opportunity to see various aspects of the game in the works, including images, trailers and interviews, therefore everyone knows the quality level they can expect from this production. In second position, also in this case, we find The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, demonstrating how this “simple” next-gen update has great meaning for many players.
The third position demonstrates a significant difference compared to what emerged with the internal vote of the editorial staff, with a pleasant surprise: High on Life closes the podium of the most anticipated games of December 2022, demonstrating how its strangeness and its being absolutely over the top has quite affected a good part of the users.
The fact that it comes out on day one on Xbox Game Pass actually makes the title particularly accessible and there is no doubt that it will be downloaded and tried by many as soon as it is available in the service catalog on launch day. A little below we find, also in this case, Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 Reunion, with the interesting strategic Marvel’s Midnight Suns to follow, a short distance away. Only going down a little further down we find Need for Speed Unbound, which evidently hasn’t managed to attract much attention, at least for now.
