The Game Awards 2022 Global Livestream Date Announced

It's coming back strong with a new category!

The Game Awards 2022 Global Livestream date just got announced and the several streaming websites the gaming community can watch it in.

The Game Awards has announced today the first details of its ninth annual show, which will stream for free worldwide across more than 40 different digital video platforms. These platforms include Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok Live. It will go live on Thursday, December 8, 2022, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Last year, the show had quite a big showcase and even delivered a record-setting 85 million global Livestreams. This made The Game Awards one of the Internet’s largest Livestream events.

The Game Awards 2022 will now introduce a new category for this year, Best Adaptation. This is to recognize creative work that authentically adapts video game intellectual property to other popular media, including but not limited to theatrical movies, streaming shows, podcasts, novels, and comic books.

“The Best Adaptation Award is a way for the gaming industry and its fans to tip its hat to creative work that authentically adapts and often adds lore and context to our favorite gaming franchises,” said Geoff Keighley, creator and executive producer of The Game Awards.  “With so many game-inspired projects across entertainment, the time is right to honor excellence in adapting video game worlds to other mediums.”
