The Game Awards had a lot of interesting reveals this year. Prime among them is the newly announced games that we could now start looking forward to. While some of these reveals didn’t give us any clear timeline on when we can expect these games to come out. Nevertheless, we listed all of these games. Here are all the newly announced games at TGA 2021, in no particular order:
Disclaimer: This list doesn’t include new gameplay reveal trailers for games that have already been announced in development. We could include games that have finally been officially confirmed after much speculation, but not games that have already been announced but with new reveals in TGA 2021.
- Tunic – December 14, 2021 – Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series X (Andrew Shouldice, Fingi)
- The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – TBD – “PC and next-gen consoles) (Gun Interactive, Sumo Nottingham)
- Homeworld 3 – Q4 2022 – PC (Gearbox, Blackbird Interactive)
Finally, a new Homeworld game! With Age of Empires 4 winning the Strategy Game of the Year at TGA 2021, will the return of Homeworld also usher in a new wave of RTS games? We do hope so, and we want more big-shot RTS games like this to come out. Hopefully, the successes of these two games can encourage developers to bring back RTS to its former glory.
- The Expanse: A TellTale Series – TBD – TBD (Telltale, Deck Nine)
- Thirsty Suitors – TBD – TBD (Outerloop, Annapurna Interactive)
- Have a Nice Death – March 2022 – Steam Early Access (Magic Design Studios, Perfect World Entertainment)
- Planet of Lana – 2022 – Steam, Xbox Series X, Xbox One (Wishfully, Thunderful Publishing)
- Star Wars Eclipse – TBD – TBD (Quantic Dream, Lucasfilm Games)
A new Star Wars game, but this time with more drama and less action. It’ll take some time before we get our hands on this game, but what we know so far is that this will be a narrative-driven game set in the High Republic era.
- Wonder Woman – TBD – TBD (Warner Bros., Monolith)
- Alan Wake 2 – 2023 – EGS, PS5, Xbox Series X (Remedy Entertainment, Epic Games)
This finally confirms the multiple rumors we’ve had. Alan Wake 2 is finally here, and he’s looking a lot like Jake Gyllenhaal.
- Nithingale – 2022 – PC (Inflexion Games, Improbable)
An amazing-looking game that might just be next year’s new Hunt: Showdown – fantastic atmosphere and multiplayer gameplay but with a very small community.
- Somerville – 2022 – PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X (Jumpship)
- Tchia – 2022 – Steam, PS4, PS5 (Awaceb)
Inspired by New Caledonia, this game looks like another Breath of the Wild inspired experience that mixes in familial tones with adventure. It also has some themes inspired by Super Mario Odyssey, which is an interesting touch.
- Warhammer 40,000: Space Marines 2 – TBD – PC, PS5, Xbox Series X (Saber Interactive, Focus Entertainment)
A brand-new Space Marines game? What a time to be alive for shooter fans. There’s also news of a new Warhammer Vermintide 2 expansion pass featuring the War Priest, so there’s that, too, for Warhammer fans.
- Slitterhead – 2023 – “PC and modern consoles” (Bokeh Game Studios)
This one’s interesting. Designed by the same minds responsible for Silent Hill, this horrific nightmare is something I’d be dreaming about until its release.
- Rumbleverse – February 8, 2022 – EGS, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X (Iron Galaxy, Epic Games)
Interesting concept, but could easily be 2022’s Knockout City. Hoping for the best, as a wrestling fan.
- Dune – Spice Wars – 2022 – Steam (Shiro Games, Funcom)
- Among Us VR – TBD – SteamVR, Oculus Quest 2 (Innersoth)
They’ve finally done it. We can now call each other sus in VR and point fingers in front of each other’s faces. Most importantly, we’ll get to experience what it’s like to be dropped off unto the Outer Space in VR.
- SteelRising – June 2022 – PC, PS5, Xbox Series X (Spiders, Nacon, BIGBEN INTERACTIVE)
- Metal Hellsinger – 2021 – PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X (The Outsiders, Funcom)
- Star Trek – Resurgence – Spring 2022 – EGS, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 (Dramatic Labs)
- ARC Raiders – 2022 – PC, Nvidia GeForce Now, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X (Embark Studios, Nexon)
- The Matrix Awakens – December 9, 2021 – Xbox Series X, PS5 (Epic Games)
More of a tech demo than an actual game, The Matrix Awakens showcases the full capabilities of Unreal Engine 5.
- Sonic Frontiers – Q4 2022 – PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X (Sonic Team, Sega)
Finally, an official announcement of the open-world Sonic game! This game’s going to be real bonkers. Previous 3D Sonic games didn’t fare well, but this might be an amazing opportunity for the Sonic Team to take Sonic to an entirely new level.
And that’s about it for our list of the newly-announced games in TGA 2021. However, we might have missed a couple of titles or two. In case that did happen, let us know down in the comments.
