After winning the event’s Legend Award earlier this year at the 2020 edition of the New York Game Awards, industry icon Reggie Fils-Aime has been revealed as one of the show’s co-hosts for next year.

In what will be the 10th anniversary of the New York Game Awards, Fils-Aime will serve as the host of the event alongside New York Videogame Critics Circle founder Harold Goldberg. 2021’s show will take place on January 26 and much like many other events have gone over the past few months, it will take place entirely online rather than being in-person.

We have a stellar line-up of gaming industry greats that will be sure to wow nostalgic gaming fans and new gamers alike,” Fils-Aime said of his excitement for the show early next year. “And we will honor the best of gaming from 2020. This will be a ‘must watch’ event.”

In some supporting statements, Goldberg went on to say that this year’s Legend Award, the same one that Fils-Aime earned last year, will have some big news to be shared about it. While Goldberg declined to say what this announcement will be in regards to specifically, he said that more information will be coming about down the road. As for the awards themselves, many of the presenters this year are said to be comprised of past Legend Award winners.

The New York Game Awards is typically an event that occurs in our backyard here at DualShockers, and while we obviously won’t be attending it in-person this year, we’ll continue to keep you informed of the show’s status in the coming months.
