The Game Awards host and creator Jeff Keiley said the show will premiere on December 9, on which he “worked with the developer for 2.5 years.”
In a tweet posted on Sunday, Kayleigh said he visited the developer in the summer of 2019 and that this was the last time he visited studios around the world.
While last year’s show was not filmed in front of a live audience due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 Game Awards will be in-person at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on December 9th.
