Now that we're only a week away from The Game Awards 2018, Geoff Keighley has begun to share a bit more news from the annual event, including some of the presenters who will be appearing next Thursday.
In fact, Keighley revealed on Twitter that Avengers 4 directors Joe and Anthony Russo will be live to present... something.
We are excited to welcome Joe and Anthony Russo (@Russo_Brothers) directors of Avengers, to the #TheGameAwards next week. Don't miss the stream live everywhere around the world on Thursday night. #WorldsWillChange pic.twitter.com/8Trh0rszcJ— Geoff Keighley (@geoffkeighley) November 29, 2018
Obviously, with so much hype currently surrounding Avengers 4 and the teaser trailer that just won't drop, the first assumption is that they could be there to showcase our first glimpse at the long-awaited MCU sequel. After a few teases over the last few weeks, fans are still hopeful the trailer will arrive soon. Of course, considering we are still calling the movie Avengers 4, as it still remains officially untitled, that could be another big reveal from the duo behind other MCU blockbusters Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.
Still, these are The Game Awards, and the Avengers directors might not share any of their Avengers 4 secrets quite yet. Plus, with The Game Awards' penchant for revealing some of the most anticipated new game trailers of the year, this would be a perfect time to unveil Square Enix's upcoming Avengers video game. The Russo Bros. don't technically have anything to do with the game, but it's a great opportunity to build hype for both projects.
Not much is known about the Square Enix game beyond the short teaser that revealed the broken weapons of the Avengers. The game is being developed by Crystal Dynamics, and promises to "introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come."
The Game Awards were created by Geoff Keighley following years working on a similar show for Spike TV. After a change in the video game award show's direction and its eventual cancellation, Keighley worked with video game heavy hitters like Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony to perfect the show for a new digital age. The first annual Game Awards aired in 2014 on online platforms like Steam and the various consoles' networks. The show has grown in popularity and viewership over the years, and 2018's event will film in 4K UHD and be available "for free across all major digital, gaming and social platforms."
The Game Awards 2018 will take place at the Microsoft Theater on Thursday, December 6.
