The Game Awards announcements will include ten new games – but no Resident Evil 3

The Game Awards are set for next week, and while a chunk of the show will focus on the awards for the 2019 nominees, perhaps the more notable part will be all the new announcements. The show always reveals a big selection of never-before-seen titles, and host Geoff Keighley says there’ll be around ten this year – but he also says that all the rumours you’ve been hearing are wrong.

“We have a bunch of brand new games being announced at the show,” Keighley says in a Reddit AMA. “I think there are around 10 new games/projects being revealed if you want to count the things that no one has heard about yet. As always, the Internet has a lot of really bad information out there about what you think is at the show… but it sure is fun to read.“

Among the bad info? The follow-up to the wonderful Resident Evil 2 remake will not be at the show. “There are no plans (never were) to do anything with Resident Evil 3 at the show,” Keighley says. “A lot of these ‘leaks’ are completely wrong. Nothing about our show has leaked as of this writing.”

Development of a Resident Evil 3 remake has been confirmed by some historically reliable sources, but it seems we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see what it looks like. (It’s not like your options for out-of-season Halloween games are limited, anyway.)

That probably also means the rumoured Crash Bandicoot Worlds – or whatever the marsupial’s next called ends up being called – won’t be at the show, either.

One thing we do know for sure that the debut title from WolfEye Studios – the new developer from some of the former chiefs of Dishonored developer Arkane – will be revealed at the show. The studio’s Twitter bio says it’s working on titles with “bold art direction, deep stories, and rich simulated worlds that respond to your actions.”

The Game Awards will broadcast on YouTube at 17:30 PST / 20:30 EST on December 12, or December 13 at 1:30 GMT.
