Everything Announced at The Game Awards 2015

Last night marked the second annual Game Awards show, produced and hosted by well-known gaming personality Geoff Keighley. The show is meant to be a celebration of video games, honoring this past year’s accomplishments in many different ways, be it the best of a genre, best developer, or best performance from an actor in a game. However, the show also brings about numerous world premieres for new games, so here’s a list of everything that was announced during The Game Awards 2015.

In addition to all of the announcements and awards (of which, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt hit big with 3 awards, including Game of the Year), there were several big moments of interest, such as Westwood Studios receiving the Industry Icon Award, a heartfelt speech given by Greg Miller (thanks IGN), a performance of “Quiet’s Theme” from Stefanie Joosten (following some major Konami hate), and a moving tribute to the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. If you’d like to watch the entire show, be sure to check out the video below.
