Geoff Keighley has revealed that The Game Awards 2022 will feature at least 50 games over the course of the show, which will have a runtime that is consistent with previous years.
Speaking with VideoGames.si, Keighley made it clear that there’s a truckload of titles in store for this year’s event, which has traditionally played host to everything from small indie titles to massive blockbuster reveals and updates on previously-announced games.
It’s always tough because when you have 50-plus games involved in some way, something’s gonna get out. But yeah, [we have a] pretty good history, knock on wood, with the show and we usually keep some surprises.
I was talking to one company, and they’re like, ‘Hey, we announced our game at The Game Awards, we have a spreadsheet of 143 things that we have to do immediately after.’ You know, updating the website and the social posts and things like that. So it’s just a lot of stuff that has to be coordinated. We’re hopeful we’ll get to surprise people.
I don’t have a number for you, but it’s consistent with past years. We’ve got some existing games that are announced that will show brand new content, and then we’ve got a lot of new games to reveal as well. Lots of speculation online already about what will or won’t be there. I’m sure some rumors are probably not right, and they’re only going to intensify in the coming weeks.
The Game Awards 2022 will take place on Thursday, December 8.
