Next Gen Only Reveal on Game Informer Cover Will Make People “Flip Out Over;” Coming Tomorrow (UPDATE: Evolve)

on January 7, 2014 12:20 PM

Game Informer Editor in Chief Andy McNamara just tweeted that the cover that will be unveiled tomorrow will include a “next gen only” reveal that will make people “flip out over.”

I should mention we have a kick ass cover reveal tomorrow morning at 11am Central. Next-Gen only that I think people will flip out over.

McNamara also said that tomorrow we’ll find out what the “next gen” definition he used means platforms-wise:

And for those asking for the definition of Next Gen in that tease, you will find out platforms tomorrow.

He finally explained that the reveal isn’t about God of War, Gears of War or Half-Life 3.

I will disappoint you now, it is not either of those games. Or Half-Life 3 RT @The7thNumber: Better be Gears of War or God of War!

No further details on the reveal have been shared, so we’ll have to wait for tomorrow in order to know what McNamara meant and if it’ll really make us “flip out over.” Mind you, isn’t it about time to call it “current generation”?

To join the hype train  or to keep our expectations in check? That is the question.

Update: the cover has been unveiled. It’s about Turtle Rock Studios’ Evolve, that will be published by 2K Games, a “sci-fi multiplayer-focused shooter pits a four-player crew of alien hunters against a separate player-controlled monster that grows larger and more powerful over the course of matches.”

It will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC and developed in Cryengine. You can find the game’s official site here and see the Game Informer cover below. While it definitely looks interesting, I did’t exactly flip out over. Did you?
