After its initial reveal during the PlayStation State of Play, there has not been much information on Tekken 8. However, that changed this week. The official Tekken 8 Twitter account tweeted a short teaser with the hashtag #SAVETHED8, as well as the date December 8, 2022. This teaser is likely saying that Tekken 8 will appear in some form during The Game Awards 2022.

The Game Awards 2022 will take place on December 8, 2022. The nominee list is already online for people to see what games can potentially win awards for this year. However, this announcement implies that a trailer of some sort for Tekken 8 will appear during the ceremony as well. During the State of Play, we only got a brief video of Jin and Kazuya fighting. So the trailer on December 8, 2022 may give a more concrete look at the game’s playable roster, stages, or gimmicks.
Bandai Namco first teased Tekken 8 during Evo 2022. At the time, there was no official confirmation as to what the video was. From the trailer, it appears that this entry will have cinematics throughout the battle, with lots of close-ups and different camera angles.
Tekken 8 is in development for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC via Steam. A trailer for Tekken 8 will appear at The Game Awards show on December 8, 2022.
