Keighley takes to Reddit in self defence.
For the sake of transparency, as someone that has worked in many facets of media, I do quite like Geoff Keighley and his efforts in popularizing gaming and making it bigger than it already is. But with that being said, I did not enjoy The Game Awards 2014. It was better than the 2013 VGX show, don’t get me wrong. But being “better than”, doesn’t inherently make it good. That Zelda reveal was decent though. And it did pull in 1.93 million viewers.
Now, Geoff took to Reddit roughly a day ago for an AMA in which he explained the lack of any new Bethesda games at The Game Awards, despite building hype for a possible announcement or a reveal event in the future. On the AMA he said “Not sure there is a lot to clarify, I meet with publishers and developers all the time to catch-up and plan things. I never said we were planning anything specifically for The Game Awards, in fact I think when I put out that tweet I hadn’t even announced the show yet. Of course I ask Bethesda (just like every other publisher) about showcasing new content at the awards but timing didn’t work out for them.”
True enough, he didn’t say they were planning something for The Game Awards, but he knew full well that he was making vague implications. Regardless our long wait for an official Fallout 4 announcement continues.What are your thoughts on the persisting silence of Bethesda regarding Fallout 4?
