The conventions and events for 2020 may have been cancelled, but they have found an alternative (and safer) home online through virtual showcases such as Gamescom and Tokyo Game Show. Another such event will be The Game Awards 2020 and it is scheduled for a December 10 broadcast.
As announced by Geoff Keighley himself, the event will be broadcast over 45 platforms in crisp 4K from Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo, connecting the industry and the world for a celebration of games with live award presentations, musical performances, and spectacular world premiere game announcements.
A press release reads as follows:
“In 2020, video games have connected and comforted us more than ever, and that makes the 2020 edition of The Game Awards our most important show ever. Our team is working hard to deliver an innovative and thoughtful program that celebrates excellence, previews the future, and amplifies important voices that are shaping the future of this medium.”
The Game Awards 2020 will also have a new award called “Innovation in Accessibility”, which will recognize games and software that push the boundaries for accessibility, allowing an even wider audience to enjoy all of these wonderful experiences.
Last year, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice took home the award for Game of the Year and for 2020, it’s looking to be a hotly contested affair, with the possible nominees being the likes of Final Fantasy VII Remake, The Last of Us 2, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
