The Game Awards 2021 Returns As A Live Event This December

Geoff Keighley hosts the annual Game Awards, which will be held live on Thursday December 9. It will take place at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater and be streamed live on over 40 social media and streaming platforms. The event, which was only available online, saw record viewership despite its limitations. 

Details are still scarce about who or what will be at the show other than the return of The Game Awards Orchestra. You can expect many world premieres, as well as musical performances and free demos for future titles. The Game Awards is open to co-streaming. Given that we’re still in a pandemic, additional health and safety protocols will be shared in the coming weeks for those planning to attend in person. 

Last year’s show saw The Last of Us Part II clean up with numerous awards, including the coveted Game of the Year trophy. The complete list of 2020 award winners can be found here. This behind-the scenes interview with Geoff Keighley gives you more information about the process and a peek into the making of this annual show. 

What games are you most confident will win Game of the Year? Will it be a big-budget hit like Hitman 3, Returnal, Resident Evil Village, or Deathloop? Perhaps an indie darling like It Takes Two, Before Your Eyes, The Forgotten City, or Death’s Door? Don’t forget the games still to come like Metroid Dread, Far Cry 6, and, maybe, Halo Infinite (which launches a day before the show). Please share your choices with us in the comment section!
