tekken 8 release date

Tekken 8 Will Apparently Be at The Game Awards 2022

Fans are hoping for Tekken 8 release date announcement as it’s been confirmed that the game will make be at The Game Awards 2022 in some capacity. Event host Geoff Keighley previously teased Tekken 8’s appearance at the event but the confirmation comes from Twitch streamer Avoiding the Puddle. Apparently, Bandai Namco Entertainment has sent out Tekken 8 care packages to some streamers, asking them to tune into the awards show.

The likelihood of Tekken 8 release date announcement at The Game Awards

Tekken 8 was first teased at Evo 2022 in August, and subsequently confirmed at September’s State of Play. The trailer showcased a cinematic battle between Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima, and revealed that Tekken 8 will release on the PS5. No other information was shared but fans were asked to “stay tuned.”

Considering Tekken 7 was released nearly eight years ago, it’s possible that Tekken 8 has been in development for a while but has been kept tightly under wraps. If that’s the case, we may get a release date – or at least a release window – at The Game Awards. Don’t hold your breath, though, because it’s possible that all we’re getting is a new trailer with promises of more information in the new year!
