Since the COVID-19 pandemic has infected the whole world, many companies implement a work from home system. This apparently also affects the video game event which was previously held offline and online at the same time becoming full online.
Even though E3 2020 was canceled, several replacements such as Ubisoft’s online event, namely Ubisoft Forward, Nintendo Direct, PC Gaming Show, and others seem to have adapted to the current situation. Apparently this will also be done by The Game Awards 2020.
Geoff Keighley, founder and host of The Game Awards, confirmed that the award ceremony in the video game industry will continue this year. Keighley said he had been contacted by several parties and confirmed that his homemade event would not be postponed.
Unlike the previous year, Keighley said that this event would be held online. Interestingly, instead of becoming the usual small event that some publishers have organized, Keighley insisted that this year’s The Game Awards will likely be their biggest event.
Unfortunately, it is not clear at all when The Game Awards 2020 will be held. However, if it is the same as last year, it is possible that the event will be held in December 2020.
Of course it’s unclear what the event will be like, but at least Keighley didn’t cancel it. In the near future, Keighley himself will host and producer of Gamescom Opening Night Live this week. Where, this event will announce several new games that will be released this year and the next few years.
