The Game Awards 2019 to have around 10 game reveals
Resident Evil 3 not to be a part of the reveals though
The Game Awards are the ultimate spot for announcements related to the world of gaming other than E3. Last year’s Game Awards announced the arrival of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Far Cry: New Dawn, Dragon Age 4, The Outer Worlds, Mortal Kombat 11, Crash Team Racing, and the first Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC.
This year Geoff Keighley made an announcement that around 10 new game reveals would take place at the Game Awards. ‘There are around 10 new games/projects being revealed if you want to count the things that no one has heard about yet.’
However, the Candian games journalist also revealed the Resident Evil 3 will not be a part of those announcements despite a recent leak of artwork. ‘There are no plans (never were) to do anything with Resident Evil 3 at the show. A lot of these ‘leaks’ are completely wrong’, he said. ‘Nothing about our show has leaked as of this writing.’
This proclamation by Geoff Keighley begs the question that what other games could be announced at the Game Awards 2019. Perhaps it is Batman: Arkham Legacy, the long-awaited next installment to the Arkham video game trilogy. There are also rumors of A Plague Tale sequel being in the works.
The gaming community will not have to wait long to get answers. The Game Awards take place on Dec 12. A complete list of nominees for the 2019 Game Awards can be found here. Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding racked up nine nominations this year.
Geoff Keighly denies favoritism in Game Awards Nominations
This has caused some controversy with some accusing Geoff Keighly of favoritism. It is known that he is a close friend of Hideo Kojima. However, he had denied the allegations while insisting that he has nothing to do with the nominations or winners. ‘That process isn’t the result of me having a cameo in a game, but also because I work with developers on world premieres, announcements, sponsorships, and other aspects of the show. I want the jury to be ‘blind’ to all those other aspects’, he said. ‘I just have to stay true to the rules and voting and hope that, if I want to build something that stands the test of time, I act as ethically and fairly as I can.’
The Game Awards are scheduled to air on December 12 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
