Instead, Returnal and Forza Horizon 5 are missing, two absences that have not failed to cause discussion during the past few weeks.

These last two video games should arrive next February and it is therefore plausible to see them again before their official launch.

According to the showman, this time we will focus mainly on the next gen, with a myriad of announcements that will have as protagonists are the two new consoles from Sony and Microsoft. Here is his full statement:

“The Game Awards wouldn’t really be the Game Awards without some surprises and announcements. People joke online because I always say it’s going to be great, it’s going to be the biggest and the best show ever, but really: this year’s line-up is… crazy. There are a lot of great things in the industry, a lot of companies will have new announcements for the show – Keighley writes – I think this year’s show will really give you a sense of ‘next generation in gaming’: PS5 and Xbox Series X arrived last year and had great games, but I think we’ve only barely scratched the surface. When the show is over, you will have a clear idea of ​​what the new generation will be like with several, fantastic moments of in-engine gameplay. Of course we have a lot of teasers and cool announcements for the future, so if all goes well – and I usually put it this way because you never know what the internet can speculate and understand – yes, we have a lot of nice surprises and it will be one. truly special show. “

Despite the doubt that the conductor is magnifying the event there, it should be emphasized that his enthusiasm is understandable, given how 2021 has developed up to now, or how a year of transition, in which we had to deal with a lot of waiting and little meat on the fire at the level of thick releases.

We therefore hope that with The Game Awards we will also overcome that watershed that will lead us to the heart of the new generation of gaming.
