News - 2020 BAFTA Games Awards To Be Streamed Online Due To Coronavirus

2020 BAFTA Games Awards To Be Streamed Online Due To Coronavirus


This year’s BAFTA Games Awards is the latest event to feel the effect of the ongoing concerns surrounding the new coronavirus outbreak. Rather than hosting its traditional red carpet event, BAFTA has decided to change up the format and livestream the winners online.

A statement regarding the change has been shared today, confirming that the livestream will broadcast on the same day that the original event was planned to take place, 2nd April:

Amid growing concerns over the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the number of nominees due to travel from overseas, we have made the decision to change the format of next month’s BAFTA Games Awards from a red carpet ceremony at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London to an online live stream, which will broadcast globally on the same day as scheduled (Thursday 2 April).

The health and wellbeing of our guests and our staff remain our top priority, so there will be no live audience and we are now in the process of informing all our nominees, guests, partners and suppliers of the change. The new format will include the announcement of the Games Awards winners and we look forward to sharing more updates in the coming weeks.

The nominees for the show were revealed just last week, with Luigi’s Mansion 3 doing particularly well for itself.

Other gaming events recently cancelled or altered by the coronavirus include GDC, the 2020 Pokémon Europe International Championships, and of course, E3 2020.
