In 2022, the gaming world witnessed an awesome spectacle of creativity, talent and innovation at The Game Awards. Hosted at a glamorous venue in Los Angeles, California, the ceremony delivered lots of memorable moments, including a first look at The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

The Game Awards 2022 are now over with favorites, Elden Ring, and heavy hitters like God of War Ragnarok having swept the awards ceremony with 6+ wins. Last year’s award ceremony attracted more than 100 million viewers globally.

“We are thrilled to report our 9th year of record-setting growth,” said Geoff Keighley, creator and executive producer, The Game Awards. “It was electric in the room, and felt so amazing to be back with the industry and fans as we lead into our 10th year in 2023.”

Kimmie Kim, Executive Producer, The Game Awards said, “We appreciated our fans and the continuing support of our partners. Most importantly, the hard-working production team behind the show.”

From unexpected celebrity appearances to jaw-dropping game reveals and highlights, we expect the night to have it all. In 2022, Keanu Reeves, who made a cameo to announce the Cyber Odyssey DLC, made a surprise appearance. As he walked on the stage, the crowd erupted in applause.

In a press release, executive producer and host Geoff Keighley said, “Every year, we look forward to hosting an awards ceremony that honours the stand-out games of the year while also previewing and announcing the most anticipated video games. With so many beloved game franchises and developers creating new immersive experiences, whether in television, games, movies and beyond, we can’t wait to honour the year’s best games…”
