The Game Awards 2023 is a little more than a week away and Geoff Keighley recently held a Q&A livestream answering questions from fans about the voting process, how many announcements we could expect, and more.
Geoff Keighley confirmed they will be moving away from the typical ‘World Premiere’ branding when revealing something new this time around.
“Actually, you’ll see this year, we often put up those cards, ‘world premiere, world premiere’… we’re kind of moving away from that, just because everything’s kind of, ‘is it a first look? Is it an announcement?’ etc. So we just treat it all as great game content.”
The host of The Game Awards also answered about how many reveals to expect at this year’s show and he couldn’t give an exact count, but it should be similar to previous years.
“I don’t know [if there will be the same amount]. I haven’t counted, honestly. I think around the same, but I don’t know… also, what is a world premiere?
Thanks to VGC for sharing these quotes from the livestream.
Lastly, The Game Awards this year will be about 3 hours long once again just like the previous years.
“I don’t want to quote a number, because then it’s going to reverberate on the internet… but it’s probably similar to past years in terms of the length of the show and content,” Keighley said.
“We went a little bit shorter last year, or we tried to, but then Chris Judge took his sweet time with his speech. It’s probably going to be similar to last year with a little bit shorter show.”
There are 31 categories at this year’s The Game Awards that will take up most of the show along with the usual announcements. Catch the show live on Thursday, December 7, 2023.
