The Game Awards 2022 has now come and gone, with long-time host Geoff Keighley delivering another huge in-person event following the digital efforts of the pandemic times. While the show itself brought some great early looks at some of our now-most anticipated games (Judas, we're looking at you), there's no denying that things were a little quiet when it comes to Team Xbox.
Over the last couple years, we've gotten used to Xbox showing up in a big way at TGA. Remember back in 2019 when the team first revealed the Xbox Series X at Keighley's show? How about 2020's Perfect Dark reveal or last year's incredible Hellblade 2 demo? Whichever stands out the most to you, gaming's annual December show has been a sure-fire avenue for some big Xbox news in recent times.
However, Xbox broke the mould this year by basically ghosting the entire show. As we've mentioned, we saw some solid third-party games that will come to Xbox, and the team used the show to further push Game Pass of course, but no grand Xbox Game Studios reveals were present this year - which was disappointing for sure.
