The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley recently revealed this year's show will be "significantly shorter" after listening to years of feedback, but if you thought that would result in a tight 90-minute event or so, you might be surprised on the evening. In a recent Twitch livestream, Keighley said he thinks "it's probably going to be about a two-and-a-half hour show" as opposed to the roughly 3 hours and 15-minute runtime of last year's showcase.
While the show's length still appears reliant on dress rehearsals, the host says the show could go longer depending on speeches given by award winners. He does commit to "trying to reduce the runtime a little bit", though. Not only is the show a long one, but European viewers are made to stay awake until the early hours of the morning — usually between 3am and 4am if they want to see everything and find out what game wins Game of the Year live.
