To increase the hype and prepare the pre-award, Geoff Keighley revealed a site that THQ Nordic has prepared to announce something in the framework of the event.
The Game Awards typically isn't host to many major new announcements, with publishers and developers tending to save themselves for more well-established events, but this year could well be different. There are many positive signs that we will see something related to Death Stranding at The Game Awards, as Hideo Kojima, Del Toro, and Norman Reedus has been confirmed for making an appearance at the event.
Specifically, Keighley mentions that two brand-new, never-before-seen game worlds will be showcased live at the celebration.
However, with the show having been met with much criticism in the past as a result of its lack of exciting announcements and reveals, Keighley dropping these teases and then not delivering could damage the reputation of the show and diminish interest for it in the future.
The Game Awards 2017 begins at 5:30pm PT on December 7 (7am IST on December 8).
