SEGA The Game Awards New Era New Energy

SEGA is Teasing Something Big for The Game Awards

In a post made on Saturday to X (formerly Twitter) by Twitch streamer Curiousjoi, hints at SEGA’s upcoming presence at The Game Awards has been revealed. Sharing a letter sent to her by the publisher featuring the SEGA logo and the line, “New Era, New Energy – Make sure to tune in to The Game Awards December 7,” has resulted in some fans out there speculating whether this “invitation” is indicative of an upcoming substantial announcement at the major annual event created and hosted by Geoff Keighley.

In May 2021, SEGA officially revealed its Super Game project which, according to its co-chief operating office Shuji Utsumi, will consist of “triple-A titles that cross over SEGA’s comprehensive range of technologies,” and will “go beyond the traditional framework of games.” Last month, SGA president Yukio Sugino offered a release date window for the project’s first title, stating that “to achieve this goal and elevate the business to the next level, we are conducting R&D activities to create a ‘Super Game,’ a major title that scales globally, by the fiscal year ending March 2026.”

Earlier this year in September, development for Creative Assembly’s shooter Hyenas was cancelled. According to a statement made by SEGA Sammy:

“In response to the lower profitability of the European region, we have reviewed the title portfolio of each development base in Europe and the resulting action will be to cancel ‘Hyenas’ and some unannounced titles under development.”

The title was allegedly set to be “SEGA’s biggest budget game ever.”

Streaming live from Los Angeles’ Peacock Theatre on 7 December, this year’s Game Awards sees 31 awards being given away – with the winners being determined through a combination of international media and public voting, comprising 90% and 10% of the total voting power, respectively.

Both Baldur’s Gate 3 and Alan Wake 2 lead with eight nominations each, while Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 sits in second place at seven nominations. Game of the Year nominees include all three, as well as Resident Evil 4, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
