Speaking with IGN, Keighley confirmed that the event will go on as scheduled this year. But due to COVID, it will be a digital event.
We are obviously not going to have 10,000 people in a room together, physically, for the show, but I think… you’ll see a little bit of this with how we do GamesCom. We’re definitely doing more than just me in a room, announcing winners. I’m really passionate about [still] doing the show live, versus something pre-recorded. So, yeah, we’re working on some scenarios for ways we can present the show live with a bit of spectacle to people… without the public [being] able to buy tickets to come to the show, and things like that, this year.”
The Game Awards have traditionally been in December but He didn’t offer any details about when to expect.
