December 9 was set as the date for The Game Awards 2021 recently, which will be returning as an in-person event once more, and there’s every reason to look forward to it. This is an event that’s grown and improved exponentially each yeah, and 2021’s show, it seems, is going to be a packed one as well.

Speaking about The Game Awards 2021, the show’s creator and producer Geoff Keighley said in an article recently published on the Epic Games website that there will be around 40-50 games at The Game Awards this year in some capacity- which, of course, will also include announcements of new games. That total will also include several games set for launch in 2022 and 2023, Keighley says.

“You know, it’s great to have celebrities, it’s great to have music, but I think focusing really on games is important,” he said. “Especially this year, there’ll be a lot of content for 2022 and 2023 that will be showing us our kind of biggest lineup yet of world premieres and announcements.

“What we really learned last year was at the end of the day, it really is the games and the trailers that drive the show.”

Meanwhile, Keighley also confirmed that we can expect to see gameplay footage for games that will continue to show what developers can accomplish by leveraging the power of the PS5 and the Xbox Series X/S from a visuals perspective.

“I still feel like we’ve only kind of sort of touched the surface of what’s possible on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, so I think you’ll see some stuff in the show that is truly pretty stunning,” he said. “We’ll see footage of games that will remind people that the best of this industry is still to come.”

With the show approaching and scheduled for less than a month from now, there still isn’t much word on what sort of games we can expect to see at it (though some rumours have claimed Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 might make an appearance). We’ll undoubtedly be hearing more about that in the next few days and weeks though, so stay tuned for more updates.
