​‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Loses Out To ‘God Of War’ At BAFTAs

​‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Loses Out To ‘God Of War’ At BAFTAs

Last night was the 15th British Academy Games Awards and God of War walked away the big winner. Sony Santa Monica's epic action game racked up five wins over the evening, including Best Game. Meanwhile, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2, didn't win any awards, despite being nominated in seven categories.

God of War won awards for Best Game, Audio Achievement, Music, and Narrative, and Jeremy Davies won an award for his performance as The Stranger. Other winners were Lucas Pope's Return of the Obra Dinn for Artistic Achievement and Game Design, Playground Games' Forza Horizon 4 for British Game, Villa Gorilla's Yoku's Island Express for Debut, Jagex won the EE Mobile Game award of Runescape Classic, Epic Games' Fortnite for Evolving Game, Nintendo Labo picked up awards for Family and Game Innovation, Mountains' Florence won Mobile Game, Hazelight's A Way Out got the Multiplayer award, Subset Games' Into The Breach won for Original Property, and Sarepta Studio's My Child Lebensborn got the award for Game Beyond Entertainment.

It was a big surprise that Rockstar walked away with no awards for Red Dead Redemption 2, as the game has been a huge success for the studio and reviewed extremely well on release. Similarly, Celeste, another hit of the last year, didn't receive any awards despite being in five categories itself.
