Here is a message from Keighley:
Over the past eight months, I’ve quietly traveled the world to talk with the creators who inspire me. When we sit down, I ask a simple question. “Why do you keep creating?” No matter what happens in our lives or in the world, the act of creation is a deeply personal, spiritual, and fulfilling pursuit, filled with sacrifice and challenge, but fueled by the opportunity for impact. At their best, games make us feel alive.
Today, I am happy to share the date for The Game Awards. Thursday, December 12. This year’s show will celebrate the act of creation, as I turn the stage over to a group of visionary teams selected to share their new projects with you.
I’m honored to be given this platform to celebrate our shared passion on a global scale. You’ll hear much more in the coming weeks about our plans for the fifth anniversary show. It will be very special.
– Geoff Keighley
