February 22, 2022: The next big novelty release date to watch

On the whole, these patterns are meaningless, but in the past 22 years, dates containing repeated numbers have been significant for the game, and another good date is coming: February 22, 2022.

On that doomed Tuesday early next year, the light of Scorpio’s gibbous moon will shed light on a simple fact: unforgettable dates will attract large-scale product releases.
