The Game Awards 2022: Date, Time, & Where To Watch
The Game Awards 2022 is right around the corner, with new reveals, performances, guest appearances, and several awards. This will be the first edition of the show to have a live audience since 2019. So here are the key details about The Game Awards 2022 date, time, schedule, and most importantly, where to watch it.
Unfortunately, the annual award show will be significantly shorter this year. The creator and host of the show, Geoff Keighley, explained that the decision was made based on feedback to make the show more streamlined. However, viewers can still expect a “fair number” of new game announcements and trailer drops.
Valve is also giving away one Steam Deck for every minute of The Game Awards 2022. Thanks to the terms and conditions of the giveaway, we could find out the event will be running for “approximately two and a half hours“.
