The Game Awards is a yearly event that brings together a diverse group of game developers, players, and notable names from pop culture to celebrate and advance gaming's position as the most immersive, challenging, and inspiring form of entertainment. It's a huge celebration of our industry as they recognize and uphold creative and technical excellence in the global video game and e-sports industry.
Respawn Entertainment shimmied their way into the headlines a couple of months ago when they sneak launched Apex Legends. The squad based battle royale has seemingly done the impossible since then - got an Internet full of people talking about a shooter that isn't Fortnite. Over the past couple weeks, the talk was increasingly about "what's coming next." It's been rumored for awhile that something big was coming, and just as the original game launched, Season 1 of Apex will crash onto the scene just hours after it was announced.
