As the calendar winds down and next year approaches, the gaming industry is going to collectively look back over the past twelve months to celebrate the best of the best. The Game Awards will again be the biggest platform for that, but this show has always been about new game announcements and updates as well as awards – and according to The Game Awards creator and producer Jeff Keely, This year’s event will be more bigger than ever.
In a clip uploaded to The Game Awards’ official Twitter page, Keely talks about what’s in store for the show this year, explaining that more than anything else, players will get a good introduction to the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, and what they will offer in the coming years. Keely says players can expect a lot of surprises and promises a lot of gameplay and demos in the engine.
Keely previously stated that The Game Awards 2021 will include 40-50 games in one quality or another, with double-digit new announcements. While nothing has been confirmed so far, speculation suggests Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 may be one of the games coming out. Meanwhile, Housemarque’s recent cryptic teaser may hint at an upcoming DLC announcement for Returnal.
