The Game Awards breaks records in its fifth year

If you thought The Game Awards felt bigger this year, you probably weren’t the only one, with global viewership up 128% from 2017’s 11.5 million live streams.

The Game Awards drew in a massive 26.2 million global live streams, with 1.13 million concurrent viewers, making it one of Twitch’s biggest programs at its peak.

Geoff Keighley from The Game Awards was blown away with the success of this year’s show, “Five years in, it’s amazing to see The Game Awards continue to grow both domestically and internationally,”

Adding, “These results further validate our focus on an all-digital, no-friction approach of sharing this show globally across more than 45 video platforms, not to mention the growing interest and passion for video games around the world.”

Big winners from The Game Awards were God of War being named Game of the Year, Red Dead Redemption 2 taking out Best Game Direction and Australian game Florence winning Best Mobile Game. You can see the full list of winners here.
