There may be interest for PlayStation fans watching The Game Awards 2021 this evening, as Neil Druckmann will present one of the awards. The Last of Us 2 obviously won last year’s gong during lockdown, so it’s possible Geoff Keighley wanted the Naughty Dog vice president to be there in person this year, although it does raise questions about whether his cameo will lead to any reveals.
We know that the Sony first-party studio has its fingers in a number of pies, spanning the upcoming Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, The Last of Us: Part II’s long-overdue multiplayer mode, The Last of Us’ television show, the Uncharted movie, and the alleged remake of Joel and Ellie’s inaugural adventure. There’s a lot of World Premiere potential right there.
In other news, Guerrilla’s Mathijs de Jonge has been active on Twitter, sending fire emojis in response to Keighley’s comments about the impending awards. Could we see a new Horizon Forbidden West trailer at all? The game’s out in February, so it wouldn’t be out of the question, would it? All will be revealed in a matter of hours.
