25 Biggest Horror Games Coming in 2023 and Beyond

Horror fans have had a lot to scream about these past few years, and it looks like we’re going to have even more scares ahead of us; from remakes of terrifying classics like Silent Hill 2, Dead Space, and Resident Evil 4: Remake or chilling sequels like Alan Wake 2 or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 to the ghostly promise of brand-new IP such as Slitterhead, here’s GameSpot's list of the 25 best horror games to look forward to in 2023 and beyond.

After the divisive reception of Dead Space’s spiritual successor, The Callisto Protocol, all eyes have now turned to the remake of the original game by EA’s Motive Studio. The remake will again follow the journey of engineer Issac Clarke as he fights off hordes of grotesque alien creatures on a derelict spaceship. Along with a sharp graphical makeover, the remake will bring new improvements like a propulsion boost and the ability to move in all 360 degrees while spacewalking. So you’ll have even more angles to dismember monsters from.

Arkane Austin, the studio behind Dishonored and Prey, is trying its hand at an Xbox-exclusive 4-player co-op FPS a la Left 4 Dead. This time, the twist is that you’re in a world filled with superpowered vampires. While the formula may be tried and true, Arkane will hopefully bring its unique immersive sim style of gameplay to the genre to make it feel fresh.

Unholy is a first-person shooter and atmospheric psychological horror that has you explore two parallel dimensions; a mysterious Eastern European town and a twisted world ruled by a relentless priesthood as you search for your child. The game will also feature a combat system that has you use emotions to interact with the environment and damage your opponents. It’s an ambitious twist on the genre that could prove to be unique.

Remedy Entertainment brings us back to the messed-up world of Stephen King-esque novelist Alan Wake in the long-awaited sequel to the psychological third-person horror game. Remedy’s last game, Control, featured a crossover with Alan Wake, creating a connection between the two worlds. We’re certainly intrigued by how this horror universe will continue to expand with that in mind.
