The Game Awards, the video game industry’s annual year-end celebration, today announced the first details of its 10th annual show, which will stream live from the Peacock Theater (formerly Microsoft Theater) in Los Angeles on Thursday, December 7, 2023 at 4:30pm PT.
Since its inception in 2014, The Game Awards has bet exclusively on digital live streaming as the best way to reach video game fans around the world. This year’s show will once again stream for free across more than 30 digital video platforms including Twitch, YouTube, Steam, X (formerly known as Twitter), Facebook, TikTok Live and many more to be announced. Last year’s show delivered a record-setting 103 million global livestreams, making The Game Awards one of the largest livestream events in the world.
The Game Awards 2022 further narrowed the gap between games and Hollywood with the introduction of the “Best Adaptation” category awarded to Fortiche, Riot Games and Netflix’s animated series, Arcane: League of Legends. Additionally, last year’s show debuted the world premiere first clip from the Super Mario Bros. Movie film introduced by actor Keegan Michael-Key, and welcomed The Last Of Us stars Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Troy Baker and Ashely Johnson to present one of the night’s awards.
“Each year, we look forward to hosting a show that honors the stand-out games of the year, while also announcing and previewing some of the world’s biggest and most anticipated video games,” said Geoff Keighley, creator and executive producer of The Game Awards. “With so many beloved video game franchises exploring new mediums and developers creating new experiences across platforms, whether in games, television, movies, and beyond, the industry continues to expand in many surprising ways, and we can’t wait to honor the year’s best games and to show viewers around the world what’s next.”
The Game Awards will once again feature musical performances including the return of The Game Awards Orchestra, conducted by Lorne Balfe.
The Game Awards is executive produced by Geoff Keighley and Kimmie Kim. LeRoy Bennett is creative director, and Richard Preuss is director.
