The Game Awards to feature 12-15 world premieres

We can already hear those “world premiere” game introductions ringing out in our heads, a day before tomorrow’s event. That’s right, the annual Game Awards show is live on December 10, focusing as much on new reveals as actual awards. Most years get a big game or two announced, and host Geoff Keighley has teased that 2020 could be a big one.

12-15 world premieres at The Game Awards

In a recent Reddit AMA, Keighley answered a bunch of questions about the 2020 show. One Reddit user asked about how many new game reveals would occur in this year’s main show. The response, was “I think around 12-15 or so?”, which admittedly, doesn’t sound too assured. It’s safe to assume it’ll be around that many though.

The host then backed that answer up on Twitter. In another response, Keighley reiterated that this figure was in relation to brand new, unannounced games. Well, he said, “more about brand new games” which again, is sort of vague. I think we can expect some big announcements though, as The Game Wards have delivered some wow moments in the past.

I mean, last year alone we saw the surprise reveal of the Xbox Series X, rather than at E3 or a Microsoft event. Many moons ago, we caught our first glimpse of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Wii U, which was another major reveal. Could we see the sequel at this year’s show? Only time will tell.

The Game Awards takes place tomorrow, December 10. The show begins at 3:30 pm PT / 6:30 pm ET.
