In further clarification on Twitter, Keighley noted that these will be previously unseen games, rather than additional information on games previously announced. “Yeah i’m talking more about brand new games that have not been announced at all” he said on the thread.

We know, for instance, that BioWare will be at The Game Awards with its new Dragon Age game, but since it was announced earlier this year that the game is in development, presumably that means it is not among those 12-15 announcements. As such, we may be seeing more than 12-15 games at the ceremony, alongside the actual award announcements themselves.
To see what to expect at the event, take a look at The Game Awards 2020 nominees, including the six Game of the Year contenders and 30 categories across all aspects of gaming, from games themselves to esports and creators. Recently Keighley announced that Ghost of Tsushima had won the Player’s Voice award.
