Geoff Keighley has announced on Twitter that The Game Awards is returning for a 2019 edition, which is set to air on December 12. The event will be held live from the Microsoft Theater, in Los Angeles, and will mark the fifth anniversary of The Game Awards.
As shared by Keighley, host and producer, it’ll be “very special” as the team has traveled across the world for eight months to reach the best creators and have them in the show to honor that milestone.
“Over the past eight months, I’ve quietly traveled the world to talk with the creators who inspire me,” he mentioned on his social profile. “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.”
He added that “you’ll hear much more in the coming weeks about our plans for the fifth-anniversary show. It will be very special.”
The Game Awards 2019 will be the first edition in years where we’ll be sure that Death Stranding won’t pop up with a new trailer since it will be released for a month by then. “New projects” will be there, though, so you shouldn’t worry that much about the lack of news.
