Like every year, Metacritic revealed its list of the best editors in recent months. So we already know the most outstanding companies of 2022 according to the quality of their launches. To the surprise of some, Sony was crowned while Xbox and Nintendo are not in the top 10.
It’s worth remembering that Microsoft and Xbox were the best publishers of 2021 for Metacritic; However, they could not even make the 2022 list, since they did not have enough releases to take them into account.
On the other hand, Nintendo improved several positions compared to the results of 2021. The top 10 includes important companies that had an excellent 2022, with releases that stood out and left players happy.

What were the best publishers of 2022?
Metacritic published a list of the 45 best video game publishers of 2022, which were ranked based on a points system and various factors, such as the number of releases and their review rating from the press.
“Only publishers with 5 or more different titles released in the past year are included in our rankings. Quite unusually, a major game publisher (rhymes with Microsoft) that was ranked #1 a year ago failed to hit that limit this time around, leaving them unable to defend their title,” Metacritic explained.
That being said, Sony took the top spot for the quality and number of its releases. Metacritic highlighted God of War: Ragnarök and the various ports the company released. Likewise, he assured that his title with the lowest rating was MLB The Show 22 with a 77.
Subsequently, we find studios such as Paradox Interactive, Activision Blizzard, Focus Entertainment and Take-Two Interactive, which make up the top 5. They are followed by Capcom, SEGA, Annapurna Interactive, Humble Games and Devolver Digital. Nintendo is in position 12, that is, 2 places above its 2021 results. Below is the complete list:
Red Art Games
Plug in Digital
Arc System Works
No More Robots
