The Game Awards Returns to a Live, In-Person, Event This December

The date for this year’s The Game Awards have now been officially announced, confirming that the event will be back to a live, and in-person, event.

The Game Awards 2021 will be back live at the Microsoft Theater for an in-person ceremony, which will take place on December 9th (a Thursday). Of course, it’ll still be live-streamed around the world, so everyone can get in on the fun:

The Game Awards 2021 will bring together the biggest names in gaming and popular culture for a spectacular celebration of video game culture with awards, first-look world premieres and new game announcements, plus musical performances, including The Game Awards Orchestra live on stage at Microsoft Theater, conducted by Lorne Balfe.


“We are very excited to return to the Microsoft Theater for a special night to celebrate the past, present and future of video games,” said Geoff Keighley, creator, executive producer and host of The Game Awards. “Our goal is to bring the entire community together to celebrate the most powerful form of entertainment in the world, and recognize emerging voices that represent the future of the medium.”


Additional details on health and safety protocols for the invite-only, in-person event at Microsoft Theater will be shared in the coming weeks.


Once again, The Game Awards will deliver an immersive digital experience for fans around the world, including free playable game content and interactive extensions on leading streaming platforms, including full support for co-streaming.
