Geoff Keighley confirmed that this year’s The Game Awards are set to happen on December 12 this year, with the ceremony happening in Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theatre.
With a message from Keighley confirmed the date and location, the once a year event is one of the most interesting for many, with awards, trailers, and reveals happening throughout the event. I’m a huge fan of the live performances each year and seeing who takes home the coveted Game of the Year award.
Over the past eight months, I’ve quietly traveled the world to talk with the creators who inspire me. When we sit down, I ask a simple question. “Why do you keep creating?” No matter what happens in our lives or in the world, the act of creation is a deeply personal, spiritual, and fulfilling pursuit, filled with sacrifice and challenge, but fueled by the opportunity for impact. At their best, games make us feel alive.
Today, I am happy to share the date for The Game Awards. Thursday, December 12. This year’s show will celebrate the act of creation, as I turn the stage over to a group of visionary teams selected to share their new projects with you.
I’m honored to be given this platform to celebrate our shared passion on a global scale. You’ll hear much more in the coming weeks about our plans for the fifth anniversary show. It will be very special.
