The 2022 edition of the awards was broadcast live by the Microsoft Teather (Los Angeles). 

For the 2022 Game Awards, Leroy Bennett wanted to create a set that had three separate parts yet united in their curved, arched and circular architectural aesthetic, floating in a glossy black void. All this was made possible thanks to the design of two tunnels (eyelashes), one on the left and one on the right, that provide the entrance and exits. To create the illusion of a circular tunnel he used a reflective floor. The center screen was the connection visual piece that uses various architectural graphic environments that related, complemented as well as completed the full set. Bennett's intent is to always be on the lookout for ways to push concepts beyond the normal awards atmosphere, to create illusions and shifting environments beneath the perimeters he's given.
