At this stage, it could be at E3 or the Summer Game Fest, but the team has yet to decide exactly when it will all be revealed according to the translation. Project GG as you may recall is a “brand new IP” from PlatinumGames and is described as a “powerful climax to the Hideki Kamiya superhero trio” – (included Joe has a vision and Awesome 101).

Development on some of these projects has just begun, while others are said to be in final production – with publishers expected to reveal them when they’re ready. .
