Here's what I think will be released:
QiYi:
More rebranded non-wca puzzles
Xman 5x5 and spark v2
Xman Pyraminx with maglev
Volt v3
GAN:
GAN 13 for a new record of 90 USD
GAN Square 1 with adjustable magnets
GAN 5x5 and 4x4 v2 with the 5x5 being good but the 4x4 being mediocre
MoYu:
WR M 2022 with stock corner core magnets
New 4x4 and 5x5
WR M Skewb
YJ:
MGC 6x6 v2
MGC 4x4 v2
MGC Pyraminx and Megaminx v2
New YJ budget cubes that are not yulongs
Diansheng:
23x23 and magnetic 8x8, 9x9, and 10x10
I hope Gan 13 has stronger magnets and better aligning cuz Gan 12's auto aligning stops working when the settings get tighter

I doubt they'll do maglev and core for big cubes, but I can see adjustable spring elasticity to avoid spring swaps
The Weipo Wrs, I believe, has the moyu elasticity system. I can see the big cubes from Moyu and other companies doing that as well. I don't see how they can fit the system, though. The hole for the screw+spring is really tiny.

In theory they can shrink the tooth ratchet mechanism to be small diameter, like that in a clicking pen.

Qiyi:
Qiyi releases some non-WCA puzzles (FTO?) and a new budget series

Valk cubes die ( :'( ) and the only one you can buy are the Power and Valk 5x5.

XMD releases a Tornado V3 with preinstalled core magnets, its corner cutting is on par with other flagships.

XMD also releases a new Square-1 that doesn't take over the MGC, but, is still really good and is used to break Daniel Karnaugh's 5.87 WR avg.

XMD releases a new skewb and a 5x5


YJ:
YJ finally produces their clock but it's not as good as the Qiyi

YJ comes out with a new 2x2 and 4x4-6x6 they also release a skewb


Yuxin: Yuxin releases some puzzles nobody cares about and some non-WCA stuff that people don't buy, they continue to fade away.


GAN:
Gan release the GAN 13 Ultra Blitz m (90USD) with Maglev, core magnets and a new magnetic innovation, one of the special editions is a black internal puzzle

Gan release a Square-1 that is insanely good and @Sub1Hour mains it. GAN also comes out with a 5x5 and 6x6.

GAN releases some very well performing non-WCA but they're so expensive that few people buy them.


Moyu: Moyu continues on their Maglev path including the ML Skewb and Megaminx. They release the WRM 2022, and 4x4-7x7 (everybody uses the 7x7, or at least those willing to pay 50USD)

Another RS3M yay...


Dayan:
Dayan release a new 3x3.

Dayan releases a 4x4 and 5x5, the 4x4 becomes the best on the market.

Dayan releases a skewb and pyraminx.


Other:
Shengshou makes some awesome things including a stickerless Gigaminx, @One Wheel buys three of them.

MoreTry starts becoming an actual competitor and top cubers begin to main their cubes.

Peak Cube release some more unrealistic puzzles with an unrealistic price tag.
