Top 15 most anticipated upcoming mobile games in 2022
Mobile gaming is huge right now! We bring you the best mobile games in 2019. The mobile gaming market has never seen such growth. This has led to significant growth in the market. Most people have been confined to the four walls of their houses or following social distancing measures. Mobile games were born to solve this problem in many different ways.
The mobile gaming market saw significant growth in 2021 with PUBG New State, Free Fire Max, and more. Additional high-profile games such as Pokemon Unite or Dungeon of the Endless were also released.
The next trend is the mobile porting of popular PC games. These names will blow your mind. This is the complete list of the top mobile games that are coming soon.
Apex Legends is one of the most anticipated console titles coming to mobile this year. EA has ported their highly acclaimed battle royale shooter to mobile to compete with PUBG and Call of Duty: Mobile.

After many years of prototyping, they are ready to launch a Battlefield mobile app. We expect the game to be released globally in 2022.
DC Heroes & Villains
Match-three puzzlers are something I avoid like the plague. It’s not surprising then that next year’s most anticipated mobile game is a match-three puzzler. DC Heroes & Villains will combine match-three puzzler mechanics and RPG components in a first for this dark universe.
It is DC that has me excited, mainly since I am the third wheel in Joker’s and Harley’s relationships. I’m now able to explain why this game is so exciting. You don’t need to be the hero. You can also be a villain, and they are much more entertaining.
While there is no DC Heroes & Villains release time yet, Ludia suggests that the game be available for download in early 2022.
Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat
The infamous white-haired demon-slayer has finally made its way to mobile devices. CAPCOM’s Devil May Cry will be reimagined as a mobile device’s hack and slash genre in collaboration with Yun Chang Game Development in Devil May Cry: Peak of Combat.

Diablo Immortal, which was announced for the first time in 2018, has been on the top mobile games released lists since then. Although it was not the most well-received ad, people are gradually starting to embrace the idea of Diablo on mobile. We’ve seen great things so far. This game is now one of the most highly anticipated and hated mobile games.

Plants vs. Zombies 3
It’s been quite some time since there was a new mainline entry. I’m eager to see what Popcap has in store for us. Popcap says that “PvZ 3 takes you back to where it all began,” so players should expect a modern take on classic lawn-defending action.
Hopefully, this entry will steer clear of the micro-transaction madness that ruined PvZ2 and got in the way of everything I love about the original. Popcap, please let me play it both in landscape mode and portrait. It makes perfect sense.
Star Wars: Hunters
Star Wars: Hunters, a team-based competitive combat arena for mobile devices and Nintendo Switch, is coming soon from Zynga. Zynga subsidiaries NaturalMotion, Boss Alien, and Boss Alien are co-developing Hunters.
