There are intellectual properties that are able to attract attention even with their name alone: this is the case of God of War: Ragnarok , the next step of the epic journeys of Kratos (and Atreus), which we can get our hands on in November.
However, a ranking study revealed that the Sony Santa Monica game, out on PS4 and PS5 (found on Amazon), is not at the moment the most awaited and has to settle for “only” second position .
To establish itself as the most anticipated game of all is in fact Hogwarts Legacy , which just recently was postponed to next February.
The study, conducted by USwitch , examines the volume of searches annuals on that topic, including all possible keywords related to that game. This allows you to define how interested the public is in finding information on a given stock, effectively allowing you to estimate how hot the interest is.
Hogwarts Legacy thus put together a volume of 14.5 million , while Ragnarok stopped to 13.1 million . The ambitious Starfield follows them and closes the podium from a great distance, which has put together a search volume of 6.8 million of searches.
The ranking put together by the study is not lacking in further surprises: we find in the top 10, for example, also games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 , postponed to next year due to the war in Ukraine, and the long-awaited Scorn – which do not have the media strength of the first in the standings but have managed to break through the wall of 2, 5 million searches.
Below, the complete ranking with the games and the search volume recorded by the studio.
The most anticipated games of the moment by search volume
|#||Game name||Annual Search Volume|
|2||God of War: Ragnarok||13,109,000|
|6||Marvel’s Midnight Suns||4,206,000|
|8||New The Legend of Zelda||2,825,000|
If you want to make an appointment with these games (or, at least, those whose dates we already know), we remind you that you will find the busy calendar of upcoming releases on Gameshift.it . p>
Just in these days, Hogwarts Legacy starred at Gamescom in Cologne, where it saw the arrival of a new trailer and the launch of pre-orders – Collector’s Edition sold like hot cakes.
The wizards of the Harry Potter universe seem to be at the center of players’ thoughts much more than anyone suspected, considering that Kratos is also forced to give way to him. p>
