2020 BAFTA Games Awards Nominations Dominated By Two Huge Releases

2020 BAFTA Games Awards Nominations Dominated By Two Huge Releases

The nominations for the 2020 BAFTA Games Awards have been announced, with two of 2019's biggest and most well-received releases leading the pack. Remedy's Control and Kojima Production's Death Stranding have absolutely dominated, with 11 nominations each - although Kojima's ambitious open-world game is notably absent from the coveted Best Game category.

Still, fans of Remedy's bizarre and inventive action game will be glad to know that Control is up for best game. Here at GAMINGbible, it was our Game of the Year by some distance, so we're happy to see it in the running. Control is joined in the Best Game category by Untitled Goose Game, Luigi's Mansion 3, Disco Elysium, Outer Wilds, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which took home the Game of the Year prize at Geoff Keighley's Game Awards in December last year.

Disco Elysium - another fantastic release that I'm desperate to see come to Switch at some point - bagged an impressive seven nominations, including Debut Game and Game Design. Elsewhere, juggernaut releases like Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, Fortnite, and Pokémon GO have all been nominated for multiplayer and mobile prizes.

The 2020 BAFTA Games Awards ceremony takes place at 6pm on Thursday, April 2nd. There will of course be a hosted livestream for those of us who aren't lucky to attend, so be sure to tune into that to see all the big winners on the night. Until then, take a look at the full list of nominees below.
