LGBTQ Video Games Coming Out in 2022

As the years go by, more and more developers and publishers around the world are dedicating themselves to including queer content in their video games. Just as well, because we’re more than happy to point out which games you can be gay in, leading us to declare that we’ve knuckled down to create a solid list of all of the LGBTQ games coming out in 2022.

It was only last year that we tried our utmost to highlight all of the queer games being released, and we quickly were overwhelmed at how many people came to view this list every single day. It quickly confirmed what we’d always known: queer video games and the people behind them aren’t just things we need, but are wanted as well.

So, because of the list’s popularity, we’ve decided once again to help show off all of the incredible LGBTQ games releasing in 2022. We should state that this isn’t a completed list by any means, nor is it a list that will always have ‘positive’ representation because, to be frank, we don’t have the time to play every single game on this list.

Moreover, we will more than likely have even missed a few games out. Even so, we’re counting on you, our lovely readers and developers, to let us know if we’ve missed out on anything – email us at hello@gaymingmag.com and aimee@grayjonesmedia.com.

These LGBTQ games coming out in 2022 will be categorized by month of release, or if a date hasn’t been issued, will be under the category TBD. If any game included in the list is delayed and/or cancelled, we will also update this list to show that.

We will continue to update this page as the year goes on, and as more games that are LGBTQ-friendly are revealed.

Remember, if we’ve happened to miss an LGBT game that’s set to release sometime in 2022, you can contact us at hello@gaymingmag.com and aimee@grayjonesmedia.com and let us know!
