All the winners, announcements and reveals from the 2019 Game Awards

The 5th annual gaming award show has wrapped up and we’ve got the rundown of the biggest news

The Game Awards 2019 was presented live on Thursday and brought with it several new game reveals, some memorable moments and, of course, lots of awards.

The show was once again hosted by its creator and producer Geoff Keighley, who started The Game Awards in 2014, according to its official website. The Game Awards is the successor to the original Game Awards show, which was a Spike TV production and ran from 2003 to 2013.

The original iteration featured Keighley as its host and he continued the tradition when the television network decided to end its run. This year’s co-host was Sydnee Goodman from IGN.

The show was live on over 50 platforms around the world and Keighley mentioned at one point that over 900,000 viewers were tuning in on Twitch alone. YouTube’s stream had about 300,000 viewers consistently throughout the nearly three hour event.

This year’s show included performances by Green Day, Chvrches and Grimes, the reveal of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice as Game of the Year winner and the announcement of a new Fast & Furious video game, plus a whole lot more.

Perhaps the most unexpected announcement was the official reveal of the new Xbox console. Xbox head Phil Spencer was on stage and revealed that Project Scarlett will now be known as Xbox Series X, which is coming holiday 2020.

The announcement was accompanied by a photo of the new system, which looks similar to a desktop PC. Also shown was what appeared to be an Xbox One controller, which likely means there won’t be a revised controller for the new system.

Ninja Theory’s new game for the XSX, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, was also revealed.

Speaking of new consoles, Godfall from Gearbox was revealed as well and it’ll be a PlayStation 5 console exclusive in holiday 2020. That also confirms the PS5 will hit store shelves around the same time as the Xbox Series X.

A new feature of The Game Awards this year is the Game Festival, which allows players to play demos of 13 upcoming games on Steam. Keighley said next year the program will be extended across platforms.

The games include SkateBIRD, System Shock, Haven, The Drifter and more. The catch is that the demos are only available for 48 hours. You can check out the demos through Saturday at 10 a.m.
