The Game Awards: Official winners

The Game Awards, one of the most important events in the gaming industry, took place from December 10 to 11. New projects were announced at the ceremony, and the journalists have chosen the best titles of the outcoming year.

Earlier, we summed up the preliminary results and compared the statistical figures of the nominated games, so let's find out if our expectations matched.

The ceremony itself gained 3,1M Peak Viewers and 10M Hours Watched for 4 hours of Air Time.

English fans of the gaming industry concluded the most significant part of the audience, and 11% of Hours Watched was also contributed by Portuguese-speaking viewers.

The stats of official broadcast

The Last of Us Part II obtained the Game of the Year title. Quite an expected result if you remember how much hype the game caused at the release. If the game of the year had been chosen based on Hours Watched, Animal Crossing: New Horizons would have been in the first place.

Our previsions regarding the best esports game came true - League of Legends has won in this category. In 2020, the game has reached 1,4B Hours Watched and gained a lot of attention thanks to Worlds 2020. Besides, this tournament became the best esports event.

Let's continue to talk about esports achievements. G2 Esports became the best esports team. In terms of stats, the leaders are Koreans from Damwon Gaming, the winners of World Championship 2020. They've gathered 3,8M Peak Viewers.

Among Us managed to win in two categories at once - "Best Multiplayer" and "Best Mobile". But according to statistics,  VALORANT should have been the best multiplayer as it gathered 765M Hours Watched.

Nickmercs was the first contender of Best Content Maker, but the journalists awarded Rachell "Valkyrae" Hofstetter, which mostly focus on YouTube.

If we compare the award ceremony to last year, we see a 70% increase in Hours Watched and Peak Viewers compared to 2019.

What projects await us in the future?

— Innersloth revealed the new Among Us map, which will be available in early 2021.

— New heroes and maps in Fortnite from Halo and The Walking Dead

— The new parts of Mass Effect and Dragon Age were announced
