The Game Awards 2014 Announced, Will Replace Spike’s VGX

By   /   Nov 11, 2014

Geoff Keighley has announced The Game Awards 2014, which will replace the Spike’s VGA or VGX yearly awards.

The event will take place on December 5, and Keighley will be producing, and most probably be hosting as well. Spike TV has pulled out of the project, which is why the awards have received a new name.

Geoff promises that this year’s awards will be no different than the previous ones as the biggest companies in the gaming industry including Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo.

Keighley seemed pretty thrilled as he talked about The Game Awards 2014.

The Game Awards 2014 will celebrate our collective love of games and passion we all hold in our hearts for this incredible entertainment medium.

Gaming has never been stronger, and this year we will recognize the fastest-selling launch year in history for new game consoles, the rise of eSports and mobile gaming around the globe, and preview the games that will make 2015 the biggest year yet.

The members of awards’ advisory board include some big names such as Phil Spencer, Martin Tremblay, Peter Moore, Shawn Layden, Yves Guillemot, Reggie Fils-Aime, Hideo Kojima and more.

Despite the change in name, we can expect to see world premieres of some of the major titles that will be headed our way in 2015 and beyond.
