To think we went from like no Scarlett dev kits being out there, devs being frustrated, and Phil dropping "bogus PR" about already having the finished product in his home, to a full reveal of the box in like a week and change…..
I think there has been a lot of "controlled" leaks and information dropping going on the past 2 weeks first with Sony getting one of their studios to post the 2 PS5 devkits and then Phil's tweet about his Scarlett been fully up and running at home with a few other bits in-between and also it wouldn't surprised me if the 12TF Anaconda leaks from a few days ago were planned leaks to get people talking before TGA reveal.
Safe to say no one expected Xbox Series X to be announced at The Game Awards. And especially didn't expect Hellblade 2 as the game to go with the announcement.
I think most people were expecting the Hellblade team to be the next new game announced from Xbox but everyone was expecting a new IP and not a Hellblade sequel. I'd like to see more gameplay and a longer campaign to it as the first game had some pretty cool combat but not enough of it so hopefully Hellblade II expands and offers more on that front. Looks great graphically though since that was in engine footage.
