What you need to know

  • G4 was a popular TV network that focused entirely on gaming and gaming related content.
  • It ceased operations back in 2014, and hasn't been seen since.
  • Today, X-Play suddenly tweeted a cryptic video that heavily teases the revival of G4TV.
  • It's possible that the gaming network is indeed coming back, but in what way isn't certain.

The winner for surprise announcement on Twitter today certainly goes to X-Play, who tweeted for the first time since 2012. Even more interesting was the contents, which was a short, cryptic video that ends with a logo for G4TV, a gaming TV network that ceased broadcasting back in 2014, and the tagline "We never stopped playing."

It's not certain what exactly is happening, but it's quite possible that G4TV is making a comeback after all these years. In what form, we can't say, but it seems very likely given the video's ending and the sudden revival of Twitter accounts like X-Play. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for any more information.

  • I am waaay too old now to watch AOTS
  • Wait, G4 was popular? I know TechTV definitely was...
  • G4 sucked but TechTV was *chef's kiss*
  • I wonder if this is residual trolling from the Twitter hack earlier this week.
  • We shall see in 6 months at the earliest but this gives me hope again.
