The bombast of the words “World Premiere” will definitively abandon Geoff Keighley’s Game Awards starting from the 2023 edition
For what is the prestige of Game Awardseven we gamers will have given a little air of arrogance to every “World Premiere” of previous editions: this may be why, therefore, since 2023 on Geoff Keighley divorce with a concept that was dated for him. Again from the same Q&A section yesterday in which the emphasis on security emerged, the videogame star explained how all the announcements should have been on the same level. In response to a Q&A viewer who was already anticipating a high number of reveals, Keighley replied: “I don’t know [se la quantità sarà la stessa]. I didn’t keep track, honestly. I think the same ones, I don’t know… but then, what is a World Premiere?”

Goodbye “World Premiere”: Geoff Keighley’s announcements for the 2023 Game Awards will all be the same
“In reality”, continues Keighley, “you see, we have a roadmap in which ‘world premiere, world premiere’ always appears… and we are moving away from the concept, because then we ask ourselves: is it a first look? Is it an ad? Etc… so for us it’s all great gaming content, equally.” The presenter and creator of the ceremony expects a duration and contents similar to what we have seen in the past. “I don’t want to give numbers, because then the internet does its tom tam… but I think it’s similar to past years in terms of length of the evening and content. Last year we were faster, or at least we tried, but then Chris Judge took his time with the speech. I think we’ll try to be shorter.” The event will air on the night of December 7 dal Peacock Theatre di Los Angeles.
