As the ceremony of the Game Awards is getting near, we are hearing more rumours about potential titles being revealed at the event. This probably has a lot to do with the show’s host Geoff Keighley who announced that more than 10 releases should be presented to the public during the ceremony. The latest on that list might be the next instalment in the Splinter Cell franchise.
If you are a fan of the series, you were probably waiting for this news for a long time, especially since Splinter Cell Blacklist was released in 2013. Now, how did the rumour about this new game start?
Geoff Keighley is, once again, the one behind it all. He revealed a Game Awards video that is something between a teaser and a way to further promote the event. In that video, there are many existing and upcoming games we already know of, but what is weird is that Sam Fisher makes an appearance just for a moment. If you are interested to see for yourself, here is the link where you can check out the video – pay attention to 0:53.
Although that was enough for the gaming community to start talking about the new Splinter Cell, even Keighley himself admits that the only reason he created the footage was the celebrate the gaming industry. That being said, it is vital to note that the official announcement hasn’t arrived, but we are eagerly waiting for the Game Awards on December 6th.
Plenty of Upcoming Games Announcements
As for the other potential reveals, the list is quite long. One of the certain announcements seems to be Alien: Blackout, a new game set in the Alien universe. This seems like a sure bet because 20th Century Fox requested to register a trademark under that exact name.
BioWare might be behind the next reveal as Dragon Age 4 should be officially announced at the event. In fact, it seems that this game is already under development, but there is no doubt we could expect many extra details. Some other potential announcements include Metal Gear Remakes, Asterix & Obelix XXL 2, and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger 2.
On the downside, it seems that we won’t be seeing the next Superman developed by Rocksteady. The studio revealed in an official Twitter post that they are preparing a new game, but “it is not Superman.”
