Nominees for the 2022 Game Developers Choice Awards have been revealed

Deathloop tallies up the most nominations, but others are close behind

The 2022 Game Developers Conference is currently set for March, and so too is the 22nd Annual Game Developers Choice Awards. Nominees for the show have been revealed today, with some close competition at the front of the pack.

Deathloop leads the nominations with six, including Design, Audio, Narrative, and Innovation. Just behind is Hazelight’s It Takes Two with five nominations, and Forza Horizon 5 drifts in with four. All three are in the Game of the Year category, and competing in several others as well.

Other nominees include some interesting games in the Best Debut category, like Kena: Bridge of Spirits and Wildermyth. Best Narrative features Guardians of the Galaxy and Unpacking alongside some of those previously mentioned frontrunners, and the Social Impact Award has a bunch of excellent games from the last year.
