The forum thread (or the translation doc) will be updated with key revelations as the stream goes on!
Project Neural Cloud
Project Neural Cloud is probably the most anticipated product of this livestream, owing to its recent Closed Beta announcement and the expectation that CBT will begin this month.
In fact, the Closed Beta client has already been found! This is expected to be a live-service game, meaning it will probably have social elements and receive regular content updates just like Girls' Frontline. This may even be the first high-budget live-service roguelike game to release on mobile!

Group the Dolls, skillfully use the fetter bonus, deploy the lineup reasonably, and leave the rest to the "exiles".

Please construct the city, upgrade the building, decorate the dormitory according to your preferences, and obtain rich resources and powerful bonuses. Before the next departure, I hope you and your favorite figures can enjoy half a day here.
Reverse Collapse: Code Name Bakery
Reverse Collapse is the long-awaited remake of "Bakery Girl", MICA Team's last game prior to Girls' Frontline. The newly developed re-imagination of this series far surpasses the original in production quality, and so far is the only game for which we have already seen extended gameplay footage of!
Official Game Description
"Reverse Collapse: Code Name Bakery" is an orthodox strategy game developed by the MICAteam mica group. The game background takes place in the near future, and the world is split into two sides due to the new world war. Known as the "second cold war." In "Reverse Collapse: Code Name Bakery" in order to compete for cutting-edge technology that can change the pattern of war, the conflict between the emerging "Antarctic Federation" and the "Union of Rossartrism Nations Coalition" formed by the old powers is It is unfolding around the world.
Girls' Frontline II: Exile
Girls' Frontline II: Exile, also known as "Girls' Frontline: Exilium", is the highly expected next generation successor to Girls' Frontline that has already reached almost 500,000 pre-registrations on TapTap. While it does appear to be direct sequel, the genres are quite different and Yuzhong had previously stated that GFL will continue to operate alongside GFL2 - so there's likely no need to worry about the original GFL's future playability.
According to an official article during the May 2020 announcement:
...the overall game is presented in full-3D mode, and the gameplay has undergone a huge innovation and changes. However, it still adheres to the core of hardcore tactics and strategies, which is highly anticipated!
Unfortunately, very little had been known about this title up until today, as we have yet to see any gameplay footage - perhaps this developer steam could be our first look!
Official Game Description
The story takes place in Eastern Europe in 2070. The security contractor Griffin was dismembered by the government because he was too strong. The commander left Griffin and led a group of Dolls active between the polluted area and the purification area. The story begins with a transportation commission. The commander's escort convoy was attacked on the way back from the contaminated area. The box as the commission was also robbed. After a series of battles, the commander recaptured the box, and saw the mysterious girl hidden in the box, and then began to suffer successive attacks. The principal and the mysterious girl, whose identity cannot be verified, are constantly encountering new enemies, and continue to hang over the commander like a suspense. And the conspiracy behind this will be gradually revealed in the game.
"Girls' Frontline II: Exile" is a strategy RPG mobile game that is in full 3D with ACG style.
The game uses the next generation of second-generation art rendering style combined with pbr + npr technology, with American war chess as the core gameplay, with a rich collection of formation and interactive elements.
Girls' Frontline: Glitch
Girls' Frontline: Glitch, also known as "Glitch Land", is a former fan game that was officially adopted by MICA Team with the original creator being given support by the company's production team. While its aesthetic style and gameplay are quite different from what we've come to expect from Girls' Frontline, many popular characters from Girls' Frontline make a showing in this game that is shrouded in mystique.
While most of the eyes are on the flagship titles of Neural Cloud and Exile, there's a very good chance that Glitch Land could make a fantastic showing given the amount of development that's gone into it!
