The Game Awards 2018 is a little more than a week away, and host Geoff Keighley is already teasing some exciting announcements.
According to a post Keighley made on Twitter, we can expect to see at least 10 new games announced at the awards show.

His tweet mentions some “teases” to come, and the first of these has already appeared. As both The Game Awards website and Keighley’s Twitter have revealed one of the games will be the next project by Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind Fallout: New Vegas.

Earlier this month, Microsoft Studios announced that it had acquired Obsidian Entertainment as part of an ongoing effort to purchase smaller studios. However, Obsidian has had at least one project in the works since before this acquisition. In September 2017, Obsidian revealed that it had a big non-Fallout role-playing game in the works, and confirmed this in November 2017 with a series of question marks denoting the next game in Obsidian’s timeline. Since this mysterious new game is also an RPG, it’s likely the same project.
Obsidian’s website offers up one more clue. The website has a countdown to The Game Awards, and includes an image with a yellow background, a logo with a spaceship, and some text that reads “Spacer’s Choice.”
Another image shows a futuristic-looking gun with the same fictional Spacer’s Choice brand.
The Game Awards will kick off on Thursday, December 6th, at 6 p.m. PT. We can expect to see whatever Obsidian’s new project is during that livestream. In the meantime, we’ll keep an eye out for any further teases.
