One Game Awards reveal ‘has been in the works for 2.5 years’

Host and creator of The Game Awards Geoff Keighley has claimed that the December 9 show will feature a world premiere that he has “been working on with a developer for 2.5 years.”

In a tweet published on Sunday, Keighley said that he visited the developer in the Summer of 2019 and that this was the last time he visited studios around the world.

While last year’s show was not filmed in front of a live audience due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Game Awards 2021 will be an in-person event at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on December 9.

The eighth edition of the annual event will be a major production featuring an on-stage orchestra, celebrity guests, the actual awards, and a host of game reveals.

Arkane’s Deathloop is nominated for nine prizes, Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is up for six, while Hazelight’s It Takes Two and Double Fine’s Psychonauts each received five nominations.

The Game of the Year nominees are Deathloop, It Takes Two, Metroid Dread, Psychonauts 2, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Resident Evil Village.

The Last of Us Part 2 was the big winner at The Game Awards 2020, taking home seven of the 10 prizes it was nominated for.

2020’s show saw reveals of a reboot of Perfect Dark and an untitled Mass Effect game from Bioware.
