Everything Announced during The Game Awards 2021

Here's all of the goodness revealed at The Game Awards 2021!

The Game Awards were great to watch, and they also provided announcements for some major releases coming within the next year or two. Some were release dates for games we were already expecting, and some are completely new titles to be excited about!

The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience

Keanu Reeves made a glorious return to the gaming stage alongside Carrie-Anne Moss to reveal a new game! The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience is available for free on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S!

This is in anticipation of the newest Matrix film coming out, but it was still great to see the Johnny Silverhand actor back amongst the gaming crowd!

Star Wars: Eclipse

Fear no longer if you were starting to get withdrawal symptoms from your Star Wars gaming collection! Star Wars: Eclipse is the newly announced installment that is a collaboration between Lucasfilm Games and Quantic Dream (who made Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human).

Much like Quantic's other games, this title will also be a "multiple-character branching narrative game," meaning we can expect Detroit: Become Human but in the world of Star Wars! It is in early development but will definitely be one to look out for.

Alan Wake 2

Remedy fans were excited when Alan Wake was remastered this last quarter, but it has been revealed that the story doesn't stop there! Alan Wake 2 is in production.

Remedy's Sam Lake has stated that the game is a "pretty scary experience," meaning that if you take the original Alan Wake and dial it up a notch with those Energizer batteries, you're probably in for a frightening time… but in a good way.

It is due to be released in 2023.

Wonder Woman: The Game

It has been announced that Wonder Woman will finally have her turn at being in the gaming spotlight. WB Games (Warner Brothers) treated us to a trailer for the game, made by Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War's Monolith Productions.

There was no release date for this one, but it is definitely in the works.
