Video Footage Gameplay Trailer

STALKER 2 was one of Microsoft's biggest reveals at E3 2021. Its debut trailer was lauded for its impressive visuals, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, STALKER 2 was confirmed to be in development with Unreal Engine 5. This is one of the most anticipated Unreal Engine 5 games and could be a major tentpole release for Microsoft's platforms over the next few years. The engine seems to be a better fit for open-world projects compared to previous iterations, which explains why projects such as STALKER 2 have opted to use UE5. The long-awaited sequel was set to be released in December 2022, but development was put on hold due to the conflict in Ukraine.

Developer Bloober Team
Platforms PlayStation
Release Date 2022
Video Footage Teaser

A follow-up to 2019's Layers of Fear 2 has been announced for PlayStation systems, and it will utilize Unreal Engine 5. Although the previous entries are solid horror games, they do look like indie projects and feature visuals that are unlikely to blow anyone away.

As a follow-up to 2021's MIR4, WeMade has unveiled a true next-gen MMORPG in the form of Legend of Ymir.

Although the series has always been more popular in Asia than Western countries, MIR4 did get more of a foothold in North America than the previous entries, so Legend of Ymir might look to capitalize on its predecessor's intentional presence.

Release Date N/A

New The Witcher Game

Developer CD Projekt Red
Platforms TBA
Release Date N/A

In a huge reveal, CD Projekt Red confirmed that a new Witcher game is in development; more importantly for this article, the project will be using Unreal Engine 5 rather than the REDengine the studio has employed since The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Outside its existence and an image containing the School of the Lynx medallion, CD Projekt Red opted against including any other information regarding the upcoming game.

However, the company's Global PR Director, Radek Grabowski, released a tweet stating that CD Projekt Red did not announce The Witcher 4, suggesting the franchise might be heading in a fresh direction. Please note that this is just speculation. During Epic's State of Unreal 2022 event, CD Projekt Red explained that Unreal Engine 5 was selected since it focuses on open-world game design rather than linear projects.

New Tomb Raider Game

Developer Crystal Dynamics
Platforms TBA
Release Date N/A

Following the State of Unreal 2022 showcase, Crystal Dynamics confirmed that a new Tomb Raider project is in development that will make use of Unreal Engine 5. Nothing concrete has been revealed about the game besides its existence, so it is not clear whether it will be a sequel to Shadow of the Tomb Raider or something else entirely. It should be noted that while Crystal Dynamics handled 2013's Tomb Raider and 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider, Eidos Montreal developed Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Development on Lara Croft's latest adventure has just begun, therefore, a release date is unlikely to be announced in the near future. It was always a given that Tomb Raider would produce another title sooner or later, but this confirmation that the project will use Unreal Engine 5 indicates that Crystal Dynamics hopes to push the series to new heights.
