Geoff Keighley has announced this afternoon that this years The Game Awards will kick off on Thursday, 8th December and will be broadcast live from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. This year’s event will be live streamed on 40 different digital video platforms and will hopefully include plenty of interesting surprises for gamers worldwide regardless of platform. Here’s all The GameAwards 2022 details so far:

Today The Game Awards announced the first details of its 9th annual show, which will stream for free worldwide across more than 40 different digital video platforms including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook and TikTok Live. Last year’s show delivered a record-setting 85 million global livestreams, making The Game Awards one of the Internet’s largest livestream events.

New for 2022, The Game Awards will introduce Best Adaptation, a category to recognize creative work that authentically adapts video game intellectual property to other popular media, including but not limited to theatrical movies, streaming shows, podcasts, novels, and comic books.

Last year at The Game Awards, Jim Carrey and Ben Schwartz world premiered the first trailer for the movie Sonic 2 from Paramount Pictures, and the first full trailer debuted for the Halo series from Paramount+.

“The Best Adaptation Award is a way for the gaming industry and its fans to tip its hat to creative work that authentically adapts and often adds lore and context to our favorite gaming franchises. With so many game-inspired projects across entertainment, the time is right to honor excellence in adapting video game worlds to other mediums.”  

Geoff Keighley, creator and executive producer of The Game Awards.

The Game Awards will bring together the biggest names in gaming and popular culture to celebrate the best games of 2022  and preview the future of the medium with spectacular new game announcements and world premieres. The show will once again feature musical performances including the return of The Game Awards Orchestra, conducted by Lorne Balfe.

IMAX will partner with the show to create The Game Awards: The IMAX Experience, a LIVE community event in cities around the world to experience The Game Awards. Additional details on The Game Awards: The IMAX Experience will be announced in the coming months.

  1. Ah yes, it’s that time of year again. I’m only watching it for game announcements still. Not the awards. But I still care for the awards that any game titles are getting honestly.
