LGBTQ Video Games Coming Out in 2023

As another year goes by, so comes the certainty of a certain thing appearing on Gayming Magazine: a brand new list of all of the LGBTQ video games coming out in 2023.

Since 2021 we’ve tried to highlight as many queer games as possible that are being released and not just on PC either, but on platforms like the Nintendo Switch, PS4/PS5, Xbox, and of course, mobile. It hasn’t exactly been easy as Gayming Magazine doesn’t have a huge team, but speaking as EIC of this wonderful website, I’m proud to say that this list exists and will continue to thrive as long as queer gamers are still looking for queer games.

More importantly, the huge audience we receive looking at this list confirms something that we’d always known: queer video games and the people behind them aren’t just things we need, but are wanted as well.

Before diving right into the list, 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 it. 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 aimee@grayjonesmedia.com or ty@grayjonesmedia.com.

These LGBTQ games coming out in 2023 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.

You can see our previous lists of LGBTQ games here: 2021, 2022.

One thought on “LGBTQ Video Games Coming Out in 2023

  • Thanks for including Wilderless:) it’s cool because my games aren’t often seen through an LGBTQ+ lens but there’s always been that aspect. Way back I made a flash game called Nimian Garden where the male main character could date a man or a woman, and the hero in my flash game Andagel was lesbian, and in Wilderless the character creation isn’t gender locked so you can combine features as you wish. I think it’s good for people to just be themselves and the more opportunities we have to encourage that the better. And I being a gay poc myself has helped teach me to be sensitive to appreciating differences.
