Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Dreams Release Date UPDATE: BIG Sony reveals INCOMING? (Pic: SONY)
Ahead of The Game Awards 2018, we're starting to see rumours about what may manifest at the show circulate online.
The first big rumour revolves around Sony and its exclusive roster for the PS4 and – maybe – the PS5.
Brazilian website, Combo Infinito, claims to have received an email from Sony Brazil that reveals the company intends to announce the release dates of Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, and Dreams at the famous awards show.
The site (via Google Translate), claims "Update: Release windows for Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima will be revealed during this year's edition of The Game Awards next month. Official release date of Dreams will also be announced."
Of course, this is just a rumour and shouldn't be taken at face value.
In our opinion, it's likely Sony will have a presence at the show (after all, the company debuted a confusing trailer for Death Stranding there last year) but dropping three big release dates all at once? It seems unlikely.
However, with Sony announcing it will be skipping E3 in 2019, it's not unreasonable to assume the company is going to want a big hype drop late this year to keep fans engaged and following the company into whatever its 2019 plans are.
It's worth noting that Geoff Keighley is good friends with Hideo Kojima, so we could potentially see a Death Stranding release date dropped at the show. In our eyes, that's the most reasonable option.
The Game Awards will air live from Los Angeles on Thursday, December 6 2018.
Produced by Geoff Keighley for the fifth year, The Game Awards will once again celebrate the best games and esports of 2018, in addition to world premiering the most anticipated games of the future.
“Our team is already deep into planning this years show, which will will be our biggest production to date.” said Geoff Keighley. “Were taking all the elements that worked last year and adding even more to the experience for fans in person and those watching at home all over the world. I cant wait to share more soon!”
The Game Awards 2018 will livestream for free across all gaming, social and digital platforms around the world on Thursday, December 6 at 5:30 PM Pacific Time / 8:30 PM Eastern.
