The Game Awards

Ever since it launched in 2014, The Game Awards has slowly turned into one of the biggest events in gaming, easily the most watched single one in the industry. It’s managed to surpass individual (and in some cases, combined) viewers of E3, TGS and GDC. The awards themselves have largely been minimized, with many tuning in to see the latest trailers and reveals, with the show always having at least one major moment to keep you talking. This year was no different, in fact, it was even bigger.

As Creator and Host Geoff Keighley revealed on his official Twitter, this year’s TGA saw a staggering 83% increase in viewership over TGA 2019. That equates to 83 million livestreams and 8.3 million concurrent viewers. He also posted a chart showing the pretty incredible growth from the first show back in 2014.

While that was the year the show did begin, some may not know it was an unofficial continuation of the Video Game Awards on Spike TV (now called The Paramount Network). When it was announced they would no longer host the show after the 2013 event, Keighley managed to get the resources together to launch The Game Awards and well, its success speaks for itself. The time and date for the 2021 show has not been announced as of yet, but there is sure to be one.
