The Game Awards 2020 – Ander formaat volgens Geoff Keighley

Nu de coronavirus-pandemie van 2020 veel grote spelconventies zoals E3 en meer heeft doen dalen, hebben fans zich zorgen gemaakt over The Game Awards.

Maar maak je geen zorgen – het lijkt erop dat het evenement zich aan de omstandigheden zal aanpassen en verder zal marcheren!

In een interview met IGN bevestigde Geoff Keighley, bedenker van The Game Awards, dat de show dit jaar zeker door zal gaan – hoewel niet in het gebruikelijke formaat op het grote podium.

The Game Awards 2020 volgens Geoff Keighley

Yeah… what I will say about it is, we have a very interesting plan for the show this year. We’re definitely doing it.

A lot of people are [asking], ‘Are you delaying it? The Oscars are being postponed, are you postponing The Game Awards?’ We are absolutely not. We’ll share more in the coming weeks about it, but it’s actually probably going to be our biggest show yet.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.

There’s a lot of work and, honestly, our team is working overtime thinking of how we present this in a way that celebrates the industry in a bit bigger fashion. So we’re going to do some live stuff, we’re still hoping to do some spectacle and scale to how we do things, but we’re likely not going to be able to do the ‘traditional’ show this year, but it’s absolutely happening, for sure.

Zoals veel lezers zullen weten, herbergen The Game Awards vaak veel opwindende nieuwe aankondigingen – zoals Bayonetta 3 of de Joker DLC voor Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Hopelijk brengt Nintendo dit jaar ook iets goeds naar de show!
