The Game Awards 2022 will be held on December 8 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, creator and executive producer Geoff Keighley announced. You will be able to watch it on more than 40 streaming platforms worldwide, including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok. An IMAX viewing experience is also planned.
The 2022 show will introduce the “Best Adaptation” category, which recognizes creative works that authentically adapt video game intellectual property to other popular media, such as theatrical movies, streaming shows, podcasts, novels, and comic books.
“The Best Adaptation Award is a way for the gaming industry and its fans to tip its hat to creative work that authentically adapts and often adds lore and context to our favorite gaming franchises,” said Keighley in a press release. “With so many game-inspired projects across entertainment, the time is right to honor excellence in adapting video game worlds to other mediums.”
The show will also once again feature a preview of upcoming games with new game announcements and world premieres, as well as musical performances including the return of The Game Awards Orchestra conducted by Lorne Balfe.
More details, including information on ticket sales, will be announced this fall.
