The Game Awards 2021 Will Feature 40 To 50 Games
Geoff Keighley has revealed that his annual gaming award show titled Game Awards 2021, will feature about 40 to 50 games this year.
The news came as a news post by Epic Games about the awards show in which Keighley revealed that he learned from last year that “games and trailers” drive the show. He also went on to reveal that this year’s show will focus more on the games and we assume trailers and take the focus off of featured celebrities and musical performances.
“You know, it’s great to have celebrities, it’s great to have music, but I think focusing really on games is important,” Keighley said. “Especially this year, there’ll be a lot of content for 2022 and 2023 that will be showing us our kind of biggest lineup yet of world premieres and announcements. What we learned last year was as that end of the day, it really is the games and the trailers that drive the show.”
Keighley goes on to explain that he expects to feature forty to fifty games “some way or another” this year. Further stating that the number of games we can expect to be announced this year is in the double digits. This year’s awards show will be held in person, as opposed to last year’s mostly virtual event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. They’ll air on Thursday, December 9.
