Exactly a week ago The Game Awards 2020 took place. The event was in charge of crowning The Last of Us Part II as the game of the year, and it gave us our first look at several quite interesting titles in development. Now, today it was revealed that the ceremony had more than 83 livestreams in total, a historical record for the awards.
According to the official account of The Game Awards, in total there were more than 83 live broadcasts tuning into the award on December 10. Similarly, a total of 8.3 million concurrent viewers were reached. This represents an increase of 83% compared to last year’s edition, where the maximum of livestreams was 45.2 million.

Regarding this announcement, Geoff Keighley, the organizer of The Game Awards, published a small table that reveals how the popularity of the ceremony has been increasing year after year. In 2014, when the first such presentation was made, only a total of 1.9 million live streams were reached. So we can only hope that this number will increase with the 2021 edition.
