Would love to see a small slice of Perfect Dark following the tradition of CG/Engine and then gameplay like Hellblade did
and as much as im looking forward to it, I don’t want to see Hellblade there again, last thing the game needs is Deathloop vibes, save showing it again until there’s a proper combat demo/release date/releasing within 6 months of the trailer
Until officially told otherwise, I think we’d all do well to assume Xbox will stick to only including games that will release within the 12-month window following whatever date the show in question is on.
Do we think Perfect Dark might be release before December 8th, 2023? If yes, it’ll probably be shown. If no, then it’s probably best to assume it won’t.
You say that, but TGA 2019 had Ori and Gears Tactics (with gameplay and release dates) in addition to Hellblade 2 and the console reveal. Their 2020 and 2021 offerings were just Perfect Dark and Hellblade though, so it’s hard to predict.
If we don’t have dates by then, I could see Starfield and/or Redfall getting release dates at this year’s TGAs, along with maybe a gameplay reveal for Perfect Dark and maybe confirming that Hellbade is Fall 2023.
Ah, I see. Well, if it was ages ago I’m inclined to not put much stock in that, and instead base my expectations on more recent behaviours and statements. Meaning, unless we’re told otherwise I’ll continue to assume they’ll stick to the 12-month thing for all events going forward.
Not saying I’m definitely right in that assumption, just saying that’s what makes sense to me.
