Asia’s underrepresented video game industry has only continued to grow, and Singapore has stayed on course as a regional powerhouse. We’ve got plenty to look forward to in 2022, and we would love to show off some titles to you!
In 2022, the Indonesian games economy will continue a trend that has already emerged in recent years. In no other country in Southeast Asia, so many games are produced for different platforms, as in Indonesia. Sure, due to the sheer volume, not every title always meets expectations, but unique gems are constantly created. Our release list counted more than 50 titles this year, so we focused on the most promising games.
2022 is here, and with it comes a fresh load of new releases and upcoming games from Malaysia. Despite the pandemic, which undoubtedly has brought many struggles and setbacks to game developers all over the globe, we’re excited to see so many entries from Malaysia on this year’s list.
After a rough pandemic year full of delays, but also the release of one of the best games from Southeast Asia that I’ve ever played, we return to Vietnam to talk about upcoming game releases in 2022 from the Land of the Blue Dragon with a new hope. Some of last year’s delayed games are coming back with feature updates, all-around improvements, and brand-new optimism. New games are also announced with a conviction for a release date. While FPS and horror games take center stage in this year’s article, we are excited to show you the wide variety of genres among other games.
Ahhh, Thailand, land of beaches, fantastic food, military coups, and of course, game development. Never before have there been so many release announcements from the Kingdom as for 2022 – big things are coming! The range of genres served by Thai studios is particularly impressive, including strategy games, multiplayer brawlers, visual novels, action RPGs, and shooters. This year we won’t be able to avoid playing an indie game from Thailand, that is for sure.
2021 marked the pandemic’s 2nd year, which spelled a new way of work for game developers worldwide. Despite the setback, many developers have their work slated for upcoming releases in 2022 – and the team at Virtual SEA can’t wait to see the fruits of their labor!
