The Game Awards 2022 Gains New Milestone After Event

Breaks records!

The video game industry’s year-end showcase The Game Awards 2022 has gained a new milestone.

The Game Awards has recently announced that the recent showcase has now broken viewership records with an estimated 103 million global livestreams. It was revealed that the new record has raised up to 20 percent over the 2021’s record-setting performance. This might have to do with finally coming back to the physical showcase instead of digital.

The views might have also increased due to the appearances from Al Pacino, Halsey, Daniel Craig, Rian Johnson and Ashley Johnson, Keegan Michael-Key, Cameron Monaghon, Fuslie and Valkyrae, Animal from The Muppets, and many more.

There were also various world premieres of games like Final Fantasy XVI, Star Wars Jedi Survivor, Hades II, and many more.

Thanks to its free, no friction approach to global distribution, The Game Awards delivered over 103 million livestreams across more than 30 digital networks, including YouTube (in 4K), Twitch (with Viewer Rewards), Twitter, Facebook, TikTok Live, Instagram and Steam, as well as on more than a dozen digital platforms in China and Disney+Hotstar and other networks in India.  The Game Awards: The IMAX Experience also aired live in over 40 IMAX theaters across the US, Canada, U.K. and Asia. In addition, more than 10,000 individual content creators and online influencers co-streamed the show to their audiences.
