The Game Awards 2022 has come and gone, and here's everything that was announced.
Despite host Geoff Keighley promising a shorter event this year, The Game Awards 2022 ran for almost four hours if you include the pre-show, so naturally we have a ton of ground to cover. From an update on the Super Mario Bros. movie to Horizon Forbidden West DLC and so, so much more, we have everything announced at The Game Awards 2022 right here.
Kratos actor God of War actor Christopher Judge gave an eight-minute acceptance speech, Halsey showed up to sing a song dressed as Lilith from Diablo 4, and Hideo Kojima showed up wearing a freakin' Death Stranding 2 suit, but what we're about to break down are all of the actual announcements, so if you're looking for the Final Fantasy 16 release date or news on Hades 2, here's where you'll find it.
Here's everything announced at The Game Awards 2022.
