The Game Awards host and creator Geoff Keighley took to Twitter to tease a world premiere that will occur at the awards show next month. 

"Just saw the final cut of a [The Game Awards] world premiere we have been working on with a developer for 2.5 years," said Keighley. "Truly honored we are entrusted to share this work with the world.

"2.5 years sounds like a long time, but summer of 2019 was actually my last global tour to visit developers. I always have so much fun visiting studios and hearing about their projects. Hope to do it again in 2022."

The Game Awards 2021 will premiere on December 9 at 5:00 pm PT / 8:00 pm ET.

I expect Geoff to say something like this.

He HAS to build up hype around his show.

I'm not really expecting much however as there have been many times in the past where Geoff has expressed this same enthusiasm about a developer only for the reveal to be rather lackluster.

The only thing that makes me think we COULD be in for a surprise this year is that developers pretty much postponed many of their projects last year so we may see lots of trailers for things that in theory should have been shown almost a year ago.

I love Geoff and what he has done for the gaming community at large but last years VGA show was probably the worst in its history. With the bar set so low I'm sure this year's rendition will pass it but still that's not saying much.

I'm hoping that we are all pleasantly surprised come the day of the show and that what we witness will re-instill some faith in the VGAs and its future.

This guy has a history of hyping up announcements that end up being essentially nothing. So......

I doubt it's Metroid Prime 4. Still haven't heard anything new about it. -_-

It's been over 2.5 years since Retro Studios took over Prime 4 development and Metroid Dread is nominated for GOTY. Would be a great time to show something, or at least some Prime Trilogy.
