But a Resident Evil 3 remake announcement isn’t on the cards, he confirmed during a Reddit AMA on Thursday.
“We have a bunch of brand new games being announced at the show — I think there are around 10 new games/projects being revealed if you want to count the things that no one has heard about yet,” he said.
“There are no plans (never were) to do anything with Resident Evil 3 at the show,” he later added.
The Game Awards 2019 will be held on December 12, 2019, starting at 8:30pm ET / 5:30pm PT / 1:30am December 13 UK.
For the fifth year running the event will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The nominees for the Game Awards were announced in November, with Death Stranding up for eight prizes and Control up for seven.
Asked during the AMA if he feels there’s a conflict of interest with him producing the event and featuring in the game nominated for the most awards, Keighley said he understood the concern, but pointed out that he’s not part of the nomination or voting process.
“I certainly get the concern,” he said. “As producer of the show I’m inevitably going to have relationships with people in the industry. That’s what allows me to do the show in the first place. The producers of the Oscars, for instance, are often (or almost always) people who produce movies. I don’t make games, don’t invest in games or own game stock. All I can do is be transparent about those relationships and make sure the voting is separate.
“If people think I shouldn’t allow my image to be in a game in the future maybe I should say no. I’m just trying to navigate this as best (and as transparently) as I can, as a creative person who wants to do things other than the Awards.”
