The Game Awards 2021 are held on December 9 and, in addition to rewarding the most outstanding games of the year, it is a good time to learn about the most immediate games of 2022 and others in the medium and long term. The organizer and presenter of the gala, Geoff Keighley, has assured that One of the world firsts has been in the works for two and a half years.
“I just saw the final cut of a first from The Game Awards I’ve worked with the developer for 2.5 years. It has been an honor that they trusted [en el evento] to share this work with everyone, “Keighley says on Twitter.” 2.5 years sounds like a long time, but summer 2019 was the last year of my tour to visit developers. It always amuses me to see studies and hear about their projects. I hope to do it again in 2022 “, something that depends on the ease of traveling to different countries.

Last year’s gala was broadcast in a closed studio, but The Game Awards 2021 will once again have an audience, just as it was before COVID-19. “We are very excited to return to the Microsoft Theater for a special night to celebrate the past, present and future of video games,” Keighley said of the gala. “Our goal is to bring the entire community together to celebrate the world’s most powerful form of entertainment and recognize the emerging voices that represent the future of the medium.” It is expected that in the days leading up to The Game Awards hints are given to some of the games that will feature material.
Game of the Year Candidates
This year’s Most Desired Game of the Year award will be chosen from the following nominees:
- Deathloop (Arkane Studios/Bethesda)
- It Takes Two (Hazelight Studios/EA)
- Metroid Dread (Mercury Steam/Nintendo)
- Psychonauts 2 (Double Fine/Xbox Game Studios)
- Ratchet & Clank: A Dimension Apart (Insomniac Games / SIE)
- Resident Evil 8: Village (Capcom)
Resident Evil 8 won the 2021 Golden Joystick Awards, so in principle it is one of the favorites of this year.
