The Game Awards 2019 Records Massive Viewership Increase, Geoff Keighley Announces

The Game Awards 2019 has had its best year ever, recording a year-on-year increase of 73% more livestreams for a total of 45 million.

Founder and host Geoff Keighley took to Twitter today to make the announcement.

The Game Awards is an annual award ceremony that celebrates the year’s best games and industry talent. Notable winners for 2019 included FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice voted as game of the year and best action/adventure of the year, while Disco Elysium was voted best independent game and best role-playing game.

Recent years have seen interest in The Game Awards explode largely due to Keighley managing to secure a number of high-profile developers and publishers to make new game and content announcements in between awards.

This year, for example, Microsoft unveiled its next-generation gaming console Xbox Series X for the first time ever. We also got to check out the first confirmed PS5 game called Godfall.

You can check out Twinfinite’s own annual award wrap-ups if you’re interested in comparing our own take on this year’s best games. We’ve recently confirmed our game of the year, best RPG, and best story/writing among others.
