Geoff Keighley has stated that he’ll hold a live streamed announcement ceremony on Monday, November 13, 2023, during which all nominees for The Game Awards 2023 will be revealed.

The show’s host wrote that “more than 30 categories” will be part of this year’s event, so the stream on Monday looks to be a sizable one with a lot of ground to cover. Of course, the most prestigious award is once again going to be “Best Game of the Year” with the most-deserving frontrunners likely to be The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Baldur’s Gate 3. Last year, Elden Ring triumphed in this category.

2023 has been blessed with bombastic video games, making The Game Awards' job very difficult.

Personally, I’ll be very upset if there isn’t going to be a “Best Disney Villain Musical Routine” award that Baldur’s Gate 3 can win for Raphael’s Final Act just so I get to hear it played by a live orchestra – if you’re reading this, Geoff: Do it, you coward!
