One of the biggest events in the gaming calendar, The Game Awards, have announced their 2020 event dates. Scheduled for December 10th 2020, this year’s event will also include some changes from its regular set up.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the event will instead be held online. Three stages in Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo will be used for the award presentations.
As well as the move to the online format, 2020’s presentation will also have a new award category introduced. Titled “Innovention in Accessibility” this new award will award games or technology which can “be played and enjoyed by an even wider audience.”
