- HUT 23
NHL 23 will be EA’s second pass at building its premier hockey game with the Frostbite engine, bringing next-gen performance to the fore. NHL 22 delivered visual upgrades and player animations, but fans and reviewers alike felt the title was half-baked. We hope the upcoming NHL 23 release date builds on the base that NHL 22 put using the new game engine and that it makes full use of the extra horsepower on the PlayStation 4, 5 and Xbox one, Series X and S.
It’s also worth noting that EA always drops standard editions of its games on a Friday, so we predict that the full NHL 23 release date will be Friday, September 16.
Early access for Premium Editions and EA Play members will be available beforehand.
