Way back in 2002, G4 TV hit the air waves, putting out TV shows dedicated to video game news, reviews and competitive tournaments. The channel went offline back in 2014, in part due to the shift towards streaming, leaving few viewers left for a TV channel dedicated to games. As it turns out though, G4 might be making a comeback soon.
G4 had some great hosts over the years, including names that are still prominent today, like Geoff Keighley, Adam Sessler, Alison Haislip, Olivia Munn and more. We don’t know if any of these old faces will be part of the G4 revival, but the network’s long-dormant Twitter account did come back to life last night:

The same teaser was also shared by X-Play, further hinting at a return of some sort. If you head over to the G4 website, you can also play a mini-game after which you can sign up for a mailing list for updates.
Right now, it looks like G4 will be coming back in 2021, but there are still unanswered questions. It could end up being part of a streaming service rather than a dedicated network TV channel. Hopefully we’ll get more details soon enough.
