We’re almost halfway through November now, and with the year close to wrapping up, the annual award ceremonies to highlight the best games of 2022 are around the corner. The most popular of those shows, The Game Awards, will also be bringing with it new announcements and trailers for upcoming games, as it does each year- but how much of that can we expect in this year’s show?
Speaking to VideoGames.si, The Game Awards creator, producer, and host Geoff Keighley said that over 50 games will be involved in this year’s show – scheduled for December 8 – in some capacity. ”
“t’s always tough because when you have 50-plus games involved in some way, something’s gonna get out,” Keighley said. “But yeah, [we have a] pretty good history, knock on wood, with the show and we usually keep some surprises.”
Meanwhile, Keighley also confirmed that The Game Awards 2022 will have a shorter runtime than previous years’ shows, addressing a frequent criticism. That said, the number of world premieres will be roughly the same as it has been in the past.
“I don’t have a number for you, but it’s consistent with past years,” he said. “We’ve got some existing games that are announced that will show brand new content, and then we’ve got a lot of new games to reveal as well. Lots of speculation online already about what will or won’t be there. I’m sure some rumors are probably not right, and they’re only going to intensify in the coming weeks.”
As for what announcements we can look forward to, that remains to be seen. A new Crash Bandicoot game? Kojima Productions’ next title? We should have a clearer idea in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more updates.
