To little surprise, Rockstar's epic Red Dead Redemption 2 did pretty well, considering it was tied for the most nominations with God of War this year.

Keighley also told GamesIndustry.biz that there will be a "ton" of games that will be announced during the show and then launched straight after as a way to keep viewers further engaged. There are also teases from Obsidian and even a glimpse of Splinter Cell 's Sam Fisher can be seen in a hype video for the awards ceremony.
