With every year, the Game Awards becomes a bigger and bigger celebration for all things gaming, making it the best place for any last-minute surprise reveals before the year is over. With last year giving us a delicious first look at the upcoming Dragon Age, this year is also boasting a few surprises as confirmed by creator Geoff Keighley.
Though the doritos pope did confirmed two new titles are on the way following this year’s X019 showcase, the wording definitely alludes to the fact that the party is just getting started in terms of surprises:

Ori is a huge indie favorite among the community, so gearing up for the Will of the Wisps sequel world premier is exciting. That, and Gears Tactcis fans can see what the hooplah is about with this spin-off experience.

That’s just two. The Game Awards will have plenty of reveals, surprises, and awards to be won when The Game Awards 2019 debuts on December 12th.
In addition to the two (of many, we’re suspecting) reveals, the team also confirmed earlier this month that they were hosting this year’s show in select theaters alongside Jumanji. “We know video games are a big passion point for a huge segment of our audience, so this unique superticket brings fans the ultimate night out at the theatre,” said Justin McDaniel, SVP, Global Content, Cinemark. “Cinemark is proud to be the only place to see both the opening night showing of ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ and The Game Awards live on the big screen.”
“Given that the premise of our last two Jumanji films is about getting transported into a video game, we couldn’t think of a better pairing than this,” said Ann-Elizabeth Crotty, EVP, Global Client Services and Exhibitor Partnerships, Sony Pictures Entertainment. “As soon as it became clear that our release date perfectly aligned with The Game Awards, we knew we had to do something special for fans.”
