You will see that we (and our social networks) are promoting tomorrow’s Game Awards. We hope you will support the industry by following the event. And even if we set up a handful of moments during the show (your seat), I would lower expectations considerably compared to speculation I can see (on the internet).
That is being said. As a reminder, Microsoft used the Game Awards 2019 to unveil the Xbox Series X and a next-generation Hellblade 2 trailer. With such announcements and the propensity of gamers to get carried away at the slightest joke, it’s no surprise that the situation escalated quickly.
Now we have to wait for the Game Awards 2020, which start at 1am on Thursday evening, to discover the end of this story and the “surprises” promised by Microsoft.
