Alright, changing a few things up this coming month.

  • I created another category for games that have release dates. I'll be honest, it looks sort of abysmal but I'll keep this feature in here if you guys would like. I'm sure that we will be getting more and more release dates when the actual consoles have release dates. 
  • I'm going to try to remember to keep the previous months voting thread in this thread for people to look at previous votes. 
  • I'm condensing the platforms based off of each brands platform (i.e. PS4 and PS5 will be PS, Xbox One, Xbox Series X will be XB). Please still list which version you are getting because I might try to show each individually, but I am not prepared to do so quite yet. Also, you may only vote for a game if it's on completely different platforms (i.e. - You can vote for Cyberpunk on PC and PS4 but not PS4 and PS5).
  • I'm still doing the top 10 box art. I'm going to also try to italicize the games that are releasing for the next month so it might clear up some confusion. 
  • Please feel free to discuss anything in this thread as to my methods or any features you might want me to bring back. I'm trying to make sure this series of threads continue onward as flawlessly as possible. 

Most Wanted is a series that is generated every month thanks in part to votes from the VGChartz community. While it is too late to vote in this months thread, feel free to join in next month in order to guarantee your most anticipated titles are accounted for! You can vote, right over here

There have been several shakeups since last month. After generating a lot of hype last month due to the X-Box Showcase, Halo has become the first Xbox title to grab the top spot on here since I took over in 2015! While The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Horizon: Forbidden West, Cyberpunk 2077 (PC and XB) fought for the rest of the top 5 slots. Shin Megami Tensei made a big stride as a series with the announcement of SMT III Nocturne (the highest debut) coming to the Switch and SMTV showing up to remind us that it is still in development.

While none of the titles coming next month have really been high up on the Most Wanted list, Wasteland 3 has been the most consistent of the games coming out. While I expect next month to be a bit slow on the release front, we should still continue to get more and more info trickling out about PS5 and XSX games and more knowledge about some Nintendo titles as well.

While Halo takes the throne in the platform only arena, the combination of the PC, PS, and XB versions of Cyberpunk (which were all in the top 10) easily shoots ahead of everything else to be the most popular game overall. 

Cyberpunk 2077 84 22
Halo Infinite 53 12
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 37 10
Horizon Forbidden West 33 10
Shin Megami Tensei V 19 9
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart 15 4
Hollow Knight: Silksong 14 4
Resident Evil 8 13 5
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time 13 5
Bayonetta 3 13 4

As far as titles that have release dates, out of the 70+ titles, I was only able to find concrete release dates for 16 games. But hopefully next month we will get some concrete release dates for the PS5 and XSX (and hopefully some games too) 

Halo Infinite (XB1/XSX) 53 12 Xenonauts 2 (PC) 5 2
