For the fifth year since its inception, The Game Awards show is back at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. Show host Geoff Keighley has revealed the show’s 2019 livestream date, which is set for this winter.
No time has been specified as of yet, but Keighley confirmed on Twitter that The Game Awards is scheduled to go live on Thursday, December 12. Tickets are on sale now, while those who can’t make it to Los Angeles can catch the stream on the official website. A press release states that more details, including nominees and world premieres, will be released in the coming weeks.
Last year’s Game Awards wrapped up with quite a bang. A few high-profile games took home multiple awards, including Red Dead Redemption 2 (four awards), Fortnite (two awards), and Celeste (two awards). The big winner, God of War, walked away with the coveted Game of the Year award, beating out Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and more.
A smorgasbord of news came out of last year’s Game Awards as well. Hades, from Bastion and Transistor developer Supergiant Games, was unveiled during the livestream. We also saw announcements for Far Cry New Dawn, Mortal Kombat 11, The Outer Worlds, and more. There were some surprises as well, including the announcement of Hello Games’ next project–titled The Last Campfire–and the remaster of Crash Team Racing.
