Apparently, the upcoming fighting title “Tekken 8” will indeed be presented at The Game Awards 2022. At least that’s what a PR kit sent to Twitch streamer “AvoidingThePuddle” suggests.
In September this year, Bandai Namco Entertainment finally put an end to the fans’ waiting time and officially presented the fighting title “Tekken 8” with a first video.
After already in the summer the hints condensed that “Tekken 8” could be one of the titles to be presented at The Game Awards 2022 next week, the Twitch streamer “AvoidingThePuddle” now provided the supposed confirmation. He shared a photo showing a PR kit announcing a reveal at The Game Awards 2022.
This year’s spin-off of the event will take place on December 8th, 2022 and will continue to be hosted by Geoff Keighley. No fewer than 50 games are promised, waiting for their presentation or announcement.
Will it be released in 2023?
Bandai Namco Entertainment did not want to confirm when “Tekken 8″ will be released, but pointed out in an investor conference on the latest business figures that a release in the 2023 financial year is currently being targeted. “We are planning a large number of projects. Tekken 8 is also in development with the goal of launching in fiscal 2023 or later.”
“Tekken 8” is based on Unreal Engine 5 and, according to official information, will be designed from scratch. Or to put it another way: None of the assets that were used in the successful predecessor are being reused. By the way, the story of “Tekken 8” will focus on the father-son showdown between Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama.
