The Game Awards show will be next Friday starting at 1:30 am and finishing at 3:30 am. While the show is known for the awards part (obviously) it’s also a regular home for game announcements and is often a great source of exciting news for those of us into gaming. The show is produced by Geoff Keighley, who some of you might know as being one of Hideo Kojima’s best friends forever.
Well, as is the case every year, there are hundreds of rumours going around regarding what we’ll be seeing announced this year. To be fair, we could see almost anything, especially with the new console generation coming out at the end of next year.
Well, in what can only be described as pouring oil on the flames, Geoff Keighley did an AMA on Reddit and revealed that “We have a bunch of brand new games being announced at the show — I think there are around 10 new games/projects being revealed if you want to count the things that no one has heard about yet. As always the Internet has a lot of really bad information out there about what you think is at the show…but it sure is fun to read :)”
Could this be a distraction, could there be around 11 games revealed? Maybe some of the leaks we’ve seen recently are actually spot on and he’s trying to throw us off of the digital scent.
We’ve seen talks about Vanquish and Bayonetta remasters from Platinum. Both of these appear to be confirmed though, which makes them marginally less exciting in the event that they do get leaked. There was also talk of A Plague Tale 2, though that is said to be releasing in 2022, which could be just a touch too far out to announce it at this year’s Game Awards. Keighley also said that Resident Evil 3 won’t be at the show either.
It seems as though there will be a few Riot Games announcements though, as KeighleyTweetedout about the game being “one of the biggest franchises in gaming and it’s coming to The Game Awards”. So, it could be that we see proper announcements for some of the titles they teased alongside Legends of Runeterra earlier this year. Hopefully, they manage to also start treating their staff a littlebetter.
There is, of course, a huge wishlist of games people would like to see announced at this year’s Game Awards. Things like Breath of the Wild 2 would make a lot of sense, given that Nintendo like to do announcements at this kind of show. Of course, we could also see something from them regarding Metroid Prime 4, or even the Metroid Prime Trilogy remaster that everyone wants.
Outside of that, it could be that this year is a hotbed of launch title announcements for both PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, meaning we could see the likes of Halo Infinite, Horizon Zero Dawn 2, or any other kind of game announced. Hell, we might even see Bloodborne 2 announced, and that would be lovely.
