Game Awards 2015 Enters Second Year, Set For December 3
The second annual Game Awards is just around the corner.
Creator and organizer Geoff Keighley confirmed to The New York Times that the event will kick off at 9 p.m. EDT on December 3; it will be streamed live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Keighley expects about 4,000 people to attend, which would represent an increase from the 3,500 who came to the first Game Awards in 2014. You can watch the show via Twitch or through your PlayStation or Xbox console, and Keighley thinks viewership will exceed 2 million. One major sponsor is Verizon, which will help because the organizer spent $1 million of his own money to produce last year's event in Las Vegas. And he ended up losing money on the endeavor, too.
But he's trying again. If you remember, Keighley worked with Spike TV to host their annual video game awards show. But when Spike asked him to produce the show in 2014, he refused and set out to create his own awards ceremony. Will you be watching this year?
