Like every December, The Game Awards is the event that marks the end of the year in the video game industry, with prizes and awards for the best titles of 2021, as well as important and long-awaited announcements of the games of the future.
The Game Awards 2021 will once again be produced by Geoff Keighley, a near-legendary figure in the video game media industry. This year, the event will take place at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, California. It will begin at 4:30 pm (Pacific time) and 9:30 pm (Eastern time).
The official transmission of the event will be made by the main streaming platforms: Youtube, Twitch Y Twitter. Additionally, there will be many YouTube channels that will broadcast the event with their own presenters and commentators, so the offer to see The Game Awards will be wide.
What announcements are expected?
While the names are being kept under lock and key, Geoff Keighley anticipated there will be six major premieres during the event. This refers mainly to titles that are not yet known and that come from important studios, but in addition to that it is also possible that trailers of games already announced will appear.
The list of categories is very extensive, but the main one is the one of those that compete for the prize of the game of the year. The candidates are Deathloop, It Takes Two, Metroid Dread, Psychonauts 2, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Y Resident Evil Village.
The winners are decided by voting by an international group of juries, which is made up of both specialized media and members of companies and development studios.
