The Game Awards continue to rise in popularity – the 2015 iteration of the same saw 2.3 million viewers tuning in which is a 20 percent increase over last year’s event. Organizer and host Geoff Keighley revealed this to Polygon in a new interview and is confident of the event returning next year.

“With the growth this year and all the sponsor support, I feel pretty confident we will be back next December for The Game Awards 2016.”

This year’s event responded to feedback and strove to achieve, “A tighter production technically, a shorter run time, and more on-stage awards. The format feels good, and it’s been nice to see the audience response – two solid years means we’re on the right path.”

A competitive gaming tournament was supposed to take place this year but didn’t happen. It will be interesting to see what does make it in 2016 though as Keighley said, “Next year will be about adding other elements around the show.”
