Deathloop, It Takes Two, And Forza Horizon 5 Lead Game Developers Conference Award Nominations

With just over two months until the 22nd annual Game Developers Choice Awards, the conference organizers have announced the nominees across each of the award show’s nine categories. Leading the pack in nominations is Arkane Studio’s Deathloop, the hit immersive-sim-meets-first-person shooter GameSpot lauded as our Game of the Year last month. Deathloop’s six nominations are followed closely by Hazelight’s It Takes Two, which received five, and Forza Horizon 5 with four.

Among the categories Deathloop has been nominated for are best audio, best design, best narrative, best visual art, the innovation award, and, last but not least, Game of the Year. The vibrant and cheeky multiplayer platforming title It Takes Two received its nominations for best design, best narrative, the social impact award, the innovation award, and Game of the Year, while Forza Horizon 5–the latest entry in the hit racing sim series–earned them for best audio, best technology, best visual art, and Game of the Year.

In addition to these three titles, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Unpacking, Psychonauts 2, Halo Infinite, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart also got a fair bit of love from the GDC. Several independent and studio debuts have also made some serious waves, including Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Inscryption, Unpacking, and Wildermyth.

You can read up on every game nominated for a GDC award–as well as all the honorable mentions–over on the conference’s official webpage. Here’s a list of the contenders for the award show’s top nine categories:
