2023 is already shaping up to be a great year for gaming, especially since the Last of Us adaptation hit the mark. With over 100 titles releasing this year, keeping an account of them all can hardly be considered a manageable task. 

We have already seen a number of studios push back the release dates for their titles to get things just right, and we’re all for it. This list will account of it all, although we hope not many such changes are required. So here’s a look at 2023 for gaming, and its a big one for new titles.
