5 First Person Shooters To Play On Xbox In 2022

Published: Dec 6, 2021

With just a few weeks left in the year, we will soon be looking forward to what next year has in store. There are many great action-packed games released recently or coming soon. We took our time to pick our top 5 favorite first person shooters that will keep us entertained in 2022. Call of Duty was left off of our list for many reasons. Not only are we over the World War 2 theme, but the yearly releases also continue to feel more like a money grab than an actual game of appreciate to loyal fans.

We have gathered the top 5 First-Person Shooters heading into 2022. We built the list based on the entire Xbox ecosystem and not just one particular console. Since Xbox continues to support last-gen and current-gen consoles, along with PC, cross-play and cloud gaming, we included which platforms you can expect to play each game on. Battlefield 2042 only made the cut due to lack of new alternatives. The game feels thin, but we hope that it will fill in a bit with future expansion packs.
