The Game Awards continues to rise in popularity with creator and host Geoff Keighley confirming a record 85 million livestreams for this year’s show. It saw a slight bump from last year which had over 83 million livestreams.
Other notable records include 1.6 million tweets about the show; 23.2 million viewer votes; and 1.75 million hours watched on YouTube (which is its highest till date). The sustained growth that the event has seen over the years is nothing short of impressive. It will only get bigger with the number of releases coming in 2022.
This year’s show featured reveals for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, Elden Ring, Steelrising, Saints Row and Homeworld 3 along with major announcements like Alan Wake 2. Rumored titles like Bully 2 were also apparently meant to appear (which didn’t happen). Time will tell if they re-emerge in the coming year or even appear at The Game Awards 2022 so stay tuned.
We're thrilled to share that #TheGameAwards delivered a record 85 million livestreams in 2021.
