May has not been very kind to gamers but luckily we have June to look forward to. Legend of Zelda: Kingdom of Tears was a hit but a couple of games got delayed to June like Amnesia: The Bunker. Highly anticipated games like Lord of The Rings: Gollum and Redfall didn’t meet expectations.

June has some of the most anticipated games coming out. May is over and it’s time to look at the best games releasing in June 2023.
